# Why can't we embed a video in a question or answer?

Or maybe we can and I just don't know how to do it? Sometimes it's easier to display a video of gameplay and since I understand you don't want code, why not just remove the possibility of putting code here.

I've recorded a demo of the scene:

Here's the research so far:

• "I understand you don't want code" You clearly misunderstood the difference between "not wanting any code" and "not wanting a ridiculous wall of code." – Nicol Bolas Jun 13 '13 at 19:41

If the problem is reasonably scoped (and truly needs a video to explain it), then that video ought to be extremely short. And space is a concern, so give it high compression and no sound.

Make a gif! It sure helps make this question more answerable.

Of course, the best gif in the world won't save an otherwise broken question.

"WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY RAGDOLL PHYSICS?"
"See my video. What's wrong? Thanks in advance."

• Physics don't operate the same in Sparta. Without the GIF I wouldn't have known enough to answer. – MichaelHouse Jun 18 '13 at 23:40

Stack Exchange sites protect images from link rot when uploaded using the Add Image button (or Ctrl+g): a separate copy is uploaded to http://i.stack.imgur.com/ in partnership with imgur. This is currently not possible for videos, likely because they tend to be huge in comparison.
• Images are protected from link rot by StackExchange sites. Great! Why then is it that I continue to find relatively recent questions lacking images, such as this one? – Engineer Jun 4 '15 at 11:06
• @ArcaneEngineer Sorry, I should have been more specific. That question's images were uploaded to a different site and only linked here. One should use the Add Image button (or press Ctrl + g) to upload images, as they go to StackExchange's dedicated http://i.stack.imgur.com/ site. I'll edit to clarify. – Anko Jun 4 '15 at 13:38
• Are *.webm's supported on this site? – Soapy Jun 10 '15 at 14:09
