How do I post videos so that the actual video comes up without having to go to a new page?

I used to think it was me, but on another forum when i type in the https link, the actual video comes up. I'm trying to post this ( NASA insight at work on Mars, starts at 25 secs)

It should embed automatically, as with the above video (assuming the linked site allows embedding). You should see a dialog box that says you can make it display as a link. Clicking in the wrong place will make it default to the link.

Try pasting the linking and waiting a few seconds to see if that happens

Forum software may also require the full browser link in order for the embed function to work correctly, and not the shortened / condensed / bitly'd link like the OP used (probably copy pasted from mobile device)

Good point. I copy-pasted the link directly from youtube, and it embedded automatically.

Ok thanks. 

Marsquakes a link to go with video

quote.. 

The craft sat on the surface of Mars for nearly six months before its first quake was detected. A "surprisingly high-frequency" seismic signal.

The quakes suggest that the Martian crust is like a mix of the Earth's crust and that of the Moon. Cracks in the Earths crust seal over time as water fills them with new minerals. This enables sound waves to continue uninterrupted as they pass through old fractures.

Drier crusts like the moon remain fractured after impacts, scattering sound waves for tens of minutes rather than allowing them to travel in a straight line. Mars, with its cratered surface, is slightly more Moon-like, with seismic waves ringing for a minute or so, whereas quakes on earth can come and go in seconds.

Oh, I'm on iPad 4 by the way. I'll work it out.

Don't post discussion of the video here. Start a new thread in the appropriate subforum.
