How can I put a youtube or any other video as a signature for this forum? I've seen someone having a video signature in another forum.

I do not believe that is possible idk. YouTube vids. have to be embedded. Besides it may just be me, but that could open up a huge can of worms, if you know what I mean. I can not imagine the amount of moderating that would be neccessary to over see such. :thumbsup:

Content issues aside, this would increase BC bandwidth use, and would slow down the loading of a forum page, especially for our dial-up members.

The closest thing you can have to a video is an animated GIF. Sometimes these can be very realistic while still maintaining a relatively low file size.

I am on dial up and I have been torchured on other sites by stupid animated gifs not to mention a video for a sig?

One site I go to has tons of people with gif's at over 1mb in size that takes me 20 mins to load the page if I want to see the avatars they have.
