Democratic Underground now has a Video Forum!
The Democratic Underground Administrators are pleased to announce our new Video Forum. Now you can watch all the latest political video in ONE PLACE, collected and posted by your fellow DU members.

Features of the Video Forum

1. Content is selected and posted by all the members of Democratic Underground. The combined efforts of the DU members will help insure that the content of the forum is always fresh, relevant, and up-to-date.

2. Videos are embedded right in the thread, so you don't have to leave Democratic Underground to watch.

3. Automatic duplicate checking, so videos with the same URL won't be posted over and over and over again.

4. Videos can be embedded into your DU Journals.

5. Recommend videos for the Greatest Page and the DU homepage.

6. Reply to video threads just like regular threads - discuss the videos with your friends.

Where to find the DU Video Forum

You can access the DU video forum from the Latest Page or the Lobby. Look for it below the Editorials & Other Articles forum.

Or, you can click this link to go straight there: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Enjoy!

Skinner, EarlG, and Elad

1. Very cool! One question though...
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 04:05 PM by Cooley Hurd
...what changes do you have to make to the YouTube code to make it work in DU? :shrug:

On edit: I'm reading EarlG's post on how to do so now... :blush:

3. You don't have to change anything.
Just paste the URL into the correct space when you start a thread in the Video Forum. That's all.

5. Very Nice. I have a Request
Could there be some type of warning(acronym) if the contents of the video are not safe for work(nsfw).

I already clicked on a video that was not appropriate for work.

This would help many of us stay employed. :)

10. My guess is that the vast majority of videos will be safe for work.
But if it is a significant problem, we will consider something like you suggest.

13. It will just simply be UNFAIR to Republicans...
...To record their own words and play it back over and over again.

20. Good idea. Now for an encore--
What about a forum to post political artworks/educational or campaign materials? These could be links to the originals, or published directly.

21. I love the video forum. It's a great tool for e-mailing, too.
You folks at the DU just hit another grand slam right out of the entire ball park with the video forum.

It's just the best.

Thank you. And, did I say, thank you?

:hi:
