How do I post .mp4 file?

Post by feruchio » Fri Sep 15, 2017 7:30 pm

Like the title, is there an extension with which I can post direct link to a video and show up on my forum?

Thanks works very well with any video source I found, but not with direct videos on the browser? :|

I don't think I understand you, but ask in the support topic for the Extension.

This is not a raw URL link as you think it would be because of the (.mp4) at the end. You can't post videos with raw URL link because of file permissions for security reasons.

No one here will help you circumvent security. You should make an extension request if the other suggestions don’t help.
