How can I post a video from my smart phone to forums?

I have a Samsung Gallaxy S II. I can post it on Facebook but don't know to do so elsewhere. I can download photos from there and post them in other forums but not videos. Thlanks for any help.
I am 72 and my vision is fading so it's hard for me to look some things up.

I don't know what Photobucket has done lately but I hate it. I can't delete or upload anything now either nor can I find any instructions there..

Gardenweb doesn't have an "upload video" feature so really there's no easy way to do it.

Youtube provides HTML5 embed code but it uses the "i frame"(without the space, even the word is blocked here) tag which is blocked in the forums(although not in your "my page").

I don't know of a site that allows you to upload a video and provides code that uses the HTML5 "video" tag. But I really haven't searched, maybe one exists?

Even then, the video would only be visible by those using an HTML5 capable browser.

So yeah, it's possible but neither easy nor reliable, at least not yet.

Christmas Comes But Once a Year (1936), Public Domain.

It would probably be easier to link to the video instead of trying to make it viewable here?

You're welcome.

BTW, the code for the above video is:

<video controls poster="http://bcdbimages.s3.amazonaws.com/paramount/xmax_comes.jpg" style="width:550px;height:100%;">
<source src="http://archive.org/download/ChristmasComesButOnceAYear-1936/CC-Christmas_Comes_But_Once_A_Year-512K.mp4">
<source src="http://archive.org/download/ChristmasComesButOnceAYear-1936/CC-Christmas_Comes_But_Once_A_Year-512K.ogv">
Sorry, your browser does not support the HTML5 video tag.
