    Charlie et al, would it be possible for you guys to add the proper code so we can embed Vimeo videos just like we can youtube videos? I know for youtube it's "http://www.youtube.com/########" same thing can be done I guess for Vimeo, where it's "http://www.vimeo.com/########"
    I know a few of us are going with Vimeo instead of youtube. Don't know how hard this would be, or if you even have time. Would be cool though!
    Thanks for the consideration,

    Mike

    I would like to second that request. I think Vimeo has the potential to quickly overthrow youtube's popularity due to it's amazingly superior, user friendly, interface.

    Hopefully this can easily be done.

    Yes, thanks for looking into it Charlie :) Hopefully a plug in will be available soon.

    This would be great! Somehow I think that the extra step to go to the Vimeo site and then view the video detracts from having the ability to play the video right there in the thread. I think some people might skip it that extra step when voting time comes. JMO though. :)

    Thanks again Charlie!

    You don't get anything FREE!

    IMHO any "FREE" service on the net is going to get you stalkers, viruses, junk e-mail, ad nauseam. Somebody has to pay for the web space and server time. If it isn't you then its going to be people who want to know about you. So, again IMHO, Vimeo is going to be just like You Tube as to privacy.

    I don't do videos, so I do not know the viability of this suggestion. Why not load the video in Trainboard's Rail Images, using a site that you know you can trust?

    Actaully, RailImages has very limited video capability so anything beyond a few seconds can't be uploaded. This is why I us YouTube these days as it does embedded very well with the current TrainBoard software. When other options such as Vimeo opens up I will review that.

    No plugin is available as of yet, for which I am surprised. I'll keep watching.

    Thanks for the update! :)

    The biggest advantage during the upload process on vimeo is the timer and percentage bar that actually works. It tells you just how much is uploaded and gives an accurate estimation of the time remaining.
    Youtube's progress bar is not linked to the actual data transfer and does not represent the actual percentage of the file that is uploaded. It's just for show.
