Help please with video of dodgy runner

Postby muggins » Tue Dec 01, 2020 2:35 pm

I've just taken a video of my newly-acquired Bachmann N Class running badly, and I'd like to upload it to somewhere so that you good people can take a look at it and tell me the likely cause of its malaise. But alas, this sort of thing is way out of my comfort zone. I've taken it on my Android phone, it's 22 seconds long, and the mic didn't pick up the sound very well so that'll need turning up when viewing. I've managed to transfer the file to my Win10 laptop, but where do I go from here: where do I upload this to, and how?

You need to open something like a Flickr or YouTube account (if you don't already have one) they are free. Then upload the video to that account. Once uploaded you will see a URL available to copy and paste back here in the forums text box. That then provides a direct link to the video.
Oh one other thing is to ensure the uploaded video is marked as Public, otherwise no one but you can see it!

Broken? It was working correctly when I left it.

Thanks for that. I'll give it my best shot :)
