I've heard a few of you may be struggling to add videos directly into the voda tv forum so it starts automatically when the post is opened so thought i'd add instructions here.

The way you need to do it is post the link to the actual movie which would be named something like 'movie.wmv'. It has to be a direct link i.e straight to the movie source. The best one is if you find a site that has a link button to download the movie as all you'd need to do is right click that link, click copy shortcut then paste shortcut into Voda's post editor. Once you have posted the link you simply highlight the code and click on the 'M' icon which is located at in the top menu when starting a thread and this will then wrap the link in a media tag. The movie now should start when the post is opened. Hope this helps

Excellent Mook .... thanks so much .... I am assuming this would work in the same way for inserting mp3 or music of some sort ... ??

I would assume so although have not tried myself. Just replace the movie link with a direct link to the mp3 and that should work
