Trouble posting with links.

When I've used the link icon to get one into a message, only part of it hyperlinks, and the viewing shows "Not Found" etc. I discovered that by pasting an image link directly into the message field*, the viewed/previewed message shows an image directly, without the reader having to go to the address. I want to post a video, but don't want to eat up space on the Board's server, if that's what my workaround will do. Here's the link:


(It's Manthey Racing at the Nurburgring. Great video, albeit low-res, and the sound of that motor inside the cockpit... wow!)

Thank you for your time, and Happy Motoring,

*As of now I can't get that to work, either, at least on this part of the Board site. (Tried pasting in a still image link, in case that made a difference.)

let me know if my method of "direct" linking is eating server space or somesuch. (I don't believe I post much in the way of image links, though.)
No problem with direct linking.

It is still stored on someone else's server.
Thank you for the tech lesson. *NM*
