How do I embed a video on my Bulletin Board?

In order to embed video on your Bulletin Board, the video will need to be hosted on a 3rd party website that provides embed codes. Youtube and Vimeo are the most commonly used sites that support this service. We highly recommend using Vimeo for better playback quality and security. The Basic level account on this site is completely free and if you find that you need more storage space, more HD uploads, etc. you can upgrade to a paid account for a very low fee. Visit Vimeo to find out more.

Below are instructions for uploading a video to Vimeo and then embedding it in your bulletin board.
