Click on Direct Link in PBucket then click on Image (above reply box) and delete whats in the box then paste the url and click ok. Mpve the cursor down. It's easier to open another tab for the PB page to get the URLs and keep the HTG tab open.

@greebal, Photobucket works well just have to work with it. Don't give up so easily. Used here many times.

Edit: hang around and get it sorted out.

I always give my wife a new vacuum cleaner for Christmas.

Sometimes I go big and throw in a new mop and broom set too. :)

If you've clicked on an image to view it full size Photobucket gives you several link options. Here's what you do

and then go to the HTG post you are composing and...

If you want to do the same from your Library (viewing the thumbnails) then

and

and finally

Ironically, I've used Jing/Comcast to capture and post these pictures.

Viola!! I just located the old code for the video above. Now that I know how to locate it I will use it next time I post a video.
Thanks Mike.

I would uncheck the show suggested videos box tho. It sometimes throws up some that are not appropriate here.

Yes, I was just overlooking it I guess.
@LH - I like that option left checked. It gives me something else to watch. LOL
As for inappropriate content, I think people should watch their kids closer rather than depending on others to filter what they see.
