    We recently introduced a new feature to allow everyone to upload videos of their cats directly to the site. This month we're going to have a fun little contest that's all about
    :jump::banana1:Cat Videos :banana2::woohoo:

    We're looking for video submissions that meet the following criteria -
    • A good quality video showing your cat or cats doing something funny or cute.
    • Video clip should be at least 15 seconds long and not longer than one minute.
    • One submission per member please [​IMG]
    Last date for video submissions: February 21st.

    And perhaps the most important aspect of this contest -
    You must upload the video to the gallery section and embed it using the gallery code. We won't accept videos that are embedded from any external source (Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook etc.).

    Why not embedding from YouTube or other sources?

    This contest is all about adopting a new posting technique so we're focusing on that - videos that you upload to TCS and share here using the Gallery embed code.

    Not sure what I'm even talking about? :headscratch: No worries, here's a tutorial -
    How To Upload And Add Videos To Your Posts

    Follow the tutorial to see how to upload a video and how to embed it here in the contest thread. Need help? Let us know in the thread or in the Site Help Forum.

    Already adopted a sweet cat video to the Gallery Section and wish to submit that?

    Awesome! Congratulations on being an early adopter :salam:All you have to do now is embed your video in a post to this thread!

    As with our photo contests, we'll run a poll to determine the winner! He or she will be getting one of these cute TCS Tote Bags!

    Any reason why not to enter? Anyone can shoot a video with a phone and give it a try :)

    Hi @Anne! A question... It's so hard to pick one video but I will -- my question is, does the video topic need to be one continuous clip, a snippet of single event/ day, or can it be a compendium of cute things, perhaps unrelated?

    :ruminating:

    Hmmm good question. (I knew there would be very good questions since this is our first ever video contest ;) ). I think we'll allow compilations. Just make sure they're not too "jumpy" and there's a good few seconds of each "episode".

    To be honest, too complicated. And when I tried to access my own videos earlier on my own computer, it denied me access. I give. :sigh::gaah:

    I’m glad to see that we have until February 21! I have a video in mind, but it’s longer than a minute, so that gives me some time to crop it a bit. :thumbsup:

    I just have a quick question: is it allowed if I remove the background noise and edit in a soundtrack? The video I have has some annoying static noise in the back, which is why I ask.

    I know what you mean, abyeb!

    It's taken me all day to whittle down a couple minute video that has some great parts in it!
    :gaah:


    But I finally got a video that is 59-60 seconds! :sweat:

    Here we go... one from kittenhood, in 2015:

    Mildred, the Fireking mug, and Crinkle Balls

    I have never used the video camera on my nook, but now is a good time to give it a try! I'll see what I can come up with, with Speedy's help! I love all the postings so far!!!

    @tarasgirl06 - You're three steps ahead of me; my phone still has a dial.

    No excuses! You don't need a phone to make a video... I used my ancient Fine Pix camera. I've never owned a smart phone nor cell phone, and that's by choice. I prefer land line phones, and desktop computers, lol.
    :)

    Surely you have a digital camera with video option, @1CatOverTheLine? :wave3:
