How open are you to having video examples in any future tutorials Bigwebmaster?

Something with a bit of Audio and a visual example. Would Ozzu be willing to store any videos or should they be done externally through the likes of YouTube or something? (providing it's credited to Ozzu)

It would probably be easiest to use Youtube and then display the video by using the link in here. You can use Youtube and actually make the video load and display through Ozzu by using the flash bbcode I believe.

I think video tutorials would be a good thing to have around here, some people get bored with reading.

Exactly what got me thinking.

It's often easier to see what someone is talking about by physically seeing how they come about it.

Also easier for those unaware of the version of software to see there and then what version is being used rather than saying it's something and then working out for ages that they have an older version if you know what i mean.

I've actually often considering doing video tutorials. I still have plans to do a "Guide to OZZU" video tutorial. One of these days I'll get a roundtuit. I used to have one, but it followed the lemmings off the cliff.

Done some here, they are still under construction.

Have removed //Posted before a link. There are pros and cons having video tutorials. Sometimes, it works better by reading. Sometimes, we need to see how it works.

One point to consider - a lot of people could have video streaming blocked at work (like me!).

The point in the tutorials would be for an alternative visual aid to help those who are not sure about what is written. We would still use images in tutorials plus the text and description on how to do things. The video could be added to the end of the tutorial or at the beginning making reference to text in it.

It would be cool to have a [youtube/] bbcode that everyone could use.

Not to disagree, but more or less to fill in for the other side - do we want to open that can of worms to every forum?

What's the worst that could happen ?

youtube videos don't start automatically, so the usual caveat of Flash bogging down threads is just not there.

A youtube bbcode would be safer than opening the flash bbcode up to everyone.

A youtube bbcode could automatically include a link to the video on youtube for people that can't see it here for any reason.

K, nuff said. I'm in. :) I was thinking the nuisance of dealing with the videos being there, but like you said, they don't auto-start so I'm covered. :)
