Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I have changed the video posting rules, as we have problems with youtubes´limits of bandwith they will allocate to our pages:

You can still type links to as many vids as you like, but the automatic embedding (where the video loads when you open the page) is now restricted: You can max have three autoloading vidsper post, and the whole page will only allow a max o 25 to auto load (1.2 per post in average).

Any number of videos eceeding those limits will be announced as "embedding disabled due to restrictions": You can still click on the link to see the vid, but it will not shown on our pages.

I am sorry this was necessary, but everytime we reached 18+ videos on our pages (Music thread, each page has 20 posts) youtube would restrict our bandwith and not provide uploads anymore, because too many vids pulling off their server at the same time.

Now, I would still ask all of you to restrict the number of videos-per-post as much as possible so that we do not exceed the page video limit of 25, because then the last posters will not see their videos display. A good move would sometimes be to spread multiple videos on diffferent posts: Thje page will be filled faster with posts, but with less videos.

Comments appreciated!

Thanks TA, the mystery is solved as to why we kept losing videos. Does this mean I should no longer go back and find my videos or is the concept of a 'soundtrack' inoperable?

The two things do not have to do one with the other, it is just an embed limit when we reach the 25 per page (or three per post), the vid remains  linked, no vid is lost (example: Check my Lili Marlen 10 vids post, all viuds are there, just you will have to cklick after the third - in the future it would be better to separate such long posts ino more than one - : http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg10837/#msg10837)

A sounddtrack is well possible and no problem at all in general, the problem that we had with yours is that youtube *deleted* the originals, so we cannot link to them anymore. This has nothing to do with us, it is for supposed copyright issues internly to youtube and nothing we can do about it.

I am afraid you will need further to look for stuff to replace the lost vids of your soundtrack... Smiley
