Why don't videos show up in my post?

You can post a link to a video, but currently it does not show as a video to play inside the post for everyone to watch.

There are ways to do this, and the admins will take a look as to whether it gets implemented or not. When something changes we'll let you know.

If you copy/paste the link to a video, it now gets recognised and embedded into the post.
By way of example, here are two of the most useful YouTube videos for those starting out with Coleman Lanterns from Lantern Lab (aka our very own member 'curtludwig').

Note that if the video is removed from the source, the embedding will not work any more.
