Mutley's Hangar Video Group (MHVG)

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

I am pleased to announce the arrival of the Mutley's Hangar Video Group (MHVG).

With the ever increasing popularity of flight sim video's I have created a showcase group on SimTube in order that we can club all our videos together in one place.

It is a public group so that anyone on SimTube or the great out doors will be able to view our videos and may be tempted to join the forum.

I think SimTube is the way to go as it is dedicated to flight sim videos so you may find other great FS videos there too!

You will need to join SimTube [Free] and upload your video first then join the group in order to add your video. The group member activation has to be done by me, once a member you can add videos at will, the initial video upload usually appears after only about 5 minutes!

There is a forum attached to the group but I have disabled it as it will be too confusing where to look to comment, so I think a new post here with your comment and a URL link should do it you then will hopefully get feed back here.

If you do decide to upload a video, contrary to previous posts I suggest you post ONLY the URL link here. I have been testing the embed function for SimTube videos on our forum and it looks as though the video is loaded when you view the forum rather than loading when you press play so takes an age to show, that's going to be annoying to other members. thsmiles48.gif

I hope you will take advantage of this, hopefully we will get more interest from flight sim users if they see plenty of action.

If you get any problems using it or I have missed something out please let me know.

So if you have any comments about the SimTube functionality or problems post here. Otherwise make a new post in the MHVG forum with a link to your video.

And where is this group I hear you cry!

Ok, sorry about that. Unfortunately these things are outside my control.

My uploads were not quite that big.

Cheers

O.K. - I've worked out how to upload, so, if you want a laugh, go to:

You can tell I've not done this sort of thing at all before, so just imagine what Dr Strangelove would have been like if I'd been asked ...... no, don't go there!!

Hope you didn't fall asleep - thanks for watching!

Cheers - Dai. :shrug_no:

Dai, it was just great - what more could I ask for - the Beach Boys, a BUFF and a KC-135 all at the same

time. Nice play on words with the title of the musical selection too. Good stuff!

Hi Peter.

 

I don't remember having to approve people on SimTube. I haven't used SimTube for many years and all our content is now published on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/user/mutleyshangar or in our forums here http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php?/forum/15-videos/ .

 

Hope that helps,

 

Joe :hat:

@Funta Peter, I have just logged in to SimTube and it looks like you have been added to the group, contrary to what it says in the first post!

 

Edit I have found the approve button, so you are approved :)

Joe,

I'd prefer to work direct to the forum, rather than go through a 3rd party. When I click on your "forum.mutleyshangar" link above, though, I can't seem to see a way of directly uploading my (quite short) MP4 file. I can see the options to either nominate a URL, or "attachment," but when I select "attachment" I'm told I don't have any. I hoped at that point a File Explorer interface would appear & I'd just point ot the file on my PC. Do I HAVE to upload to some other site like Youtube before I can post a link to that site as part of the post to the Video Forum? Sorry if this seems a bit confused, but I'm a bit confused. No doubt there's a simple answer..

Peter.

Ah, you can't upload directly here Peter, I don't have the storage capacity or bandwidth for steaming videos, that's why we have to use 3rd party hosts like YouTube.

 

Without getting too technical, and essentially for security reasons, you can only link to videos directly from YouTube and Vimeo now (SimTube uses "swf" files which are a potential hazard).

 

YouTube is free and I would be more than happy to create a quick tutorial on how to show videos here.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joe

YouTube is a terrific way to share your video work, and opens it to a wider audience as well.

 

I have one FS video on my page that got picked up by the YouTube suggestion page and has well over 750 views on it so far...probably only 1/10th of those are directly from the Mutleys and ORBx forums I originally posted the vid.

The youtube tracking pages gives some insight into the demographics viewing the work.

 

It aint no Frooglesim, but knowing your work is being Seen is kind of nice. :)

Looking forward to seeing Your work.

 

Cheers.

Nice video Joe,:cool: I did have to stop watching though as I started getting flashbacks.^_^

 

Makes me cringe watching it again, I wish I had time to make another video though, they are fun to do.
