    Embed Facebook video

    To embed a Facebook video into your Agriville post.

    In February, 2015, Facebook made it possible to embed video on its site into other sites.
    Tried it with Agriville. These were the results.

    Facebook video must be public. If it is public, it will have an Earth symbol under the poster's name, beside the time and location. If you hover over the earth symbol it says "Shared with: Public". On the page for someone else's video it will show the shared status under the right side of the video.
    You can use other people's videos in addition to your own.
    This works in original Agriville, but not in beta Agriville.
    Tried several other methods (see the most recent Test6 post) but this was all that worked.
    PC instructions. If you use Mac, translate as needed.
    Copy: press Ctrl+C, or right-click and then click "Copy"
    Paste: press Ctrl+V, or right-click and then click "Paste"

    To get the (very long) text that you need:
    From a video on a post in a timeline:

    To put the entire post in your Agriville message:
    Click the "down arrow head" in the upper right corner. Click "Embed Post" in the list that pops up.
    The text will already be highlighted, so just copy, and then paste into your Agriville message.

    To put just the video (and not the whole post) into your Agriville message (this only works for your own video):
    1. First, go to the video's own page. Either:
    a) From a Facebook timeline (yours or someone else's), with the video playing, right-click the video and click "Show video URL" in the pop-up list. Copy the highlighted text. Paste that into the browser address bar and press Enter. A little below the bottom-right of the video, click "Embed Video".
    b) If it is your uploaded video, you can also go to your Photos, then Albums, then Videos, and click on the video. Near the bottom-right of the video, click "Options"; then click "Embed Video" in the pop-up list.
    2. Copy the highlighted text that pops up.
    3. Paste the copied text into your Agriville message.

    Embed Post (same whether your own post or someone else's, whether on your timeline or someone else's); This is also what you get with the link from someone else's video's page, unless you edit the link to be like the one for your own video.
