The same applies to those who write a few sentences about a report and then a link to the full version on their web page. But a written trip report with photos with perhaps a short video of landing or take-off is an acceptable addition.
On the old site embedding a video was permitted provided autoplay was not enabled, although not many were because many people weren't sure how to do it. The normal html tags for embedding videos don't appear to work on this current version of phpbb as installed as html is disallowed. This is a shame because if it were possible posters could write their report and include the video without readers needing to leave this site. I think a compromise of this sort can only benefit the forum because increasingly people are taking videos and it is far easier to upload them to competing sites, possibly meaning fewer people posting here and fewer readers.
