The ForYourPIcs site doesn't support video hosting. The reason is that videos take quite a lot of storage space and serving them takes a lot of bandwith and I can't afford the cost for that on a free site.

There's a good alternative, though: Youtube.

Go to Youtube, login with your Gmail account and setup your own channel. Once you have done that and uploaded your video(s) posting them on Shopbuilt or here is easy.

Let me know if you run into problems on the road and I'll help you out.

Thanks "G" I've never registered on uTube and I tried today and seems like they have a 15 min. limit on videos I guess you have to pay for longer videos. I will register and see what they have to offer. Thanks.

No need to register if you already have a gmail account. Google owns both gmail and Youtube (and a lot more..)

Also, you only have to confirm your account if you want to upload videos longer than 15 minutes: https://support.google.com/youtube/answ ... l=en&oco=0
