How to play a you tube video on a blog
First, click on the play button. The bottom one, next to the line.
You will see a circle going round round in the middle of the frame. Wait for a few seconds, till you hear a sound. As soon as you hear a sound, click on the play button quickly, so that it becomes a pause button, and then again becomes play, after changing color. If you stare at the place next to the button, you should see a red (or any deep) colour spreading towards the right. If this happens, well done. Now your video is getting buffered. Till this happens, keep clicking the play button, it will work only if you click when the sound is heard.
Another sign that your video is getting buffered is that the circular dots in the center of the screen disappear. And the video stops playing.
Wait for a few minutes till the complete line is coloured, This means your video is buffered. A Buffered video is something that plays continuously. Streamlined. Whatever.
Oh, by the way, I learnt this method through trial and error, so I might have got the technical bits all mixed up.
Sometimes, it is not possible to display a video (because the embed code is not available), but a link is given. Click on the link, you will go to you-tube directly, and play stop play till the video gets buffered, the same as above. You can search for your old favourite songs on you tube and do time pass all day.
And if you want the 'link' to the video even if it is posted on the blog, double click on the image, you will go to the you tube page and the url on top is the link.
This is an Abida song that is played quite often in Osho Ashram at Mehsana. I love dancing to it.
