Is there any way I could embed a video in my question?

How can I attach a video to a Stack Overflow question to better show what's happening and what the end result that I am looking for is?

    This belongs on meta, but you know you can always link to things. Not sure if I'd really click on a video link though TBH; I'd lean toward using an animated gif instead where animation is necessary.

    Keep in mind that when posting a question or answer it should be self-sufficient. You shouldn't be dependent on external links for the post to be useful. Linking to a video is fine, but you shouldn't just link to a video. The question should be answerable even if the link breaks.

Post your video to youtube and make it only visible by Link, then post it here


Even if Stack Overflow supported embedding videos, It would probably be more appropriate to just post a link to the video anyway.

Imagine opening a question, and then being presented with a large embedded video. It's obnoxious, and pulls attention away from the rest of the problem description.

  • Not to mention it slows down the page load. I can't stand when I load a page that has a bunch of embedded videos and I have to sit there and wait for them to all load before my page works properly...
