    When someone posts an OP YT video I can only see about half of it...it gets truncated.
    Is there a setting to change this?
    on my desktop,...its the ads showing in upper right that are cutting the video in half. Seems random and u can modify ad settings i think, but not sure how to eradicate ads altogether....or if even possible...since the site here is ad sponsored. Maybe Knight could have it were subscribers can have the benefit of ad free forum use? Is that possible?

    On the ad to upper right there is an 'Ad Choices' button you can press which opens a page of various options you can take about ads. I havent pursued these fully yet.

    You can magnify up or down by your computer settings.
    I have noticed that when my computer is set at 100% magnification or higher, the videos are shortened by length.
    When I set the magnification setting to 90% or lower, the whole video length shows.

    Bump, ok.....the videos linked in my last post all come in FULL view on my desktop. So, it appears the ads only block youtube videos on smaller mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets? Wonder if Knight will respond here

    Help......

    Hello Knight and moderators,

    We've had a problem in some posts about posting YouTube videos and having the ads features block part of the video. Not sure if this is an issue just for mobile devices or not. Not sure if random factors affect the viewing of the video as well. I've tried to position the video lower in the post to see if that would clear it from being blocked ....it seemed to help. For instance....right now.....the videos of the Jill Stein interviews on this page are in full viewing capacity on my kindle fire tablet. However, to some people it may still show the video partially blocked. Please see if the videos come in full view for you, or if you have any help or info. In this regard. Thanks!

    How do I post Louis Farrakhan's video from his twitter page a couple of days ago announcing violence is the answer? Meaning getting the video only.

    nothing wrong with a link to one as long as the post justifies it
    But a link is frowned upon as it takes you off the page.

    I'll probably find it eventually, but shouldn't that be explained?

    Or, maybe this feature is over now?
