Uploading/attaching video to a post
« on: February 14, 2018, 06:54:04 PM »
I take videos on an IPad and these will not attach to a post.
Is there a way to do so?
Thanks

Unfortunately the software requires a YouTube or Vimeo link.  @tom mann  isn't set up to host video the same way he hosts photos.

I edit my Iphone movies with I Movie and upload to my Youtube channel.  In Youtube you simply copy the link and paste into your Railwire post:
