If you are still considering YouTube, a copyright notice is not necessarily a bad thing and the copyright holder might place advertisements on the video. If the warning has a yellow triangle is also not bad thing but it will be muted or blocked, sometimes worldwide, sometimes only certain countries. If the video gets a red triangle it is bad. The video will have been taken down and your account will get a strike. Three strikes and your channel will be shut down. No warning, just gone.
Thank you for the YouTube info. I'm still finding my way around that site, and I'm not sure I want to risk running up against copyright issues when I have so many videos to juggle. But I'm watching my bandwidth statistics and keeping YouTube on the back burner as a possible alternative.
Yes, actually, between W3Schools and Lynda.com I've been able to learn a LOT of what I need to complete this redesign. W3Schools is a very handy reference, but you have to be pretty creative in searching to find JUST the right answer to the problem you are trying to solve.
Maybe reorganize the selection options? Firstly, don't make "All Videos" be the default. Just bring up the selection boxes.
That's a good suggestion, but the way the page was designed before, it would call up all the files anyway, even if they were hidden. But the new code only calls up the thumbnails, so it should be loading WAY faster than before.
Help Funding the Site
I shop Amazon frequently. I'll start going there through this site. So I just click on any of the, say Stargate, links and then go on about searching and buying? Also, do you get anything at all for the clicking or is it only if I buy? I do price comparisons and sometimes find a better price elsewhere.
Yes, as long as you click ANY of the links on the "Store" page to enter Amazon initially, then ANYTHING you buy while searching or surfing will count whether RDA-related or not. Unfortunately, browsing clicks don't count, only buying. The income from Amazon is pretty minimal, but I appreciate that people do use it.

It's big business today. Please don't think of donations as "taking money." You aren't requiring it. I, and I'll betcha lots of visitors, will happily "bother" to help you out!
I guess I'm still old fashioned about that, but I do realize that the internet is considered a source of income nowadays. I've just never been one of those people who wanted to use RDA to make money for myself - there are enough of those out there already.

From "not able to decode, loads all in one square, then loads, but still doesn't play.
That's on E, Chrome -4G wireless PC. Could it be the security we use?
I'm not sure which link you're trying? I took down the sample link I used for a test. Now the videos are back on the regular Video Gallery page. The page is connecting to different links, though, so you may need to refresh the page to make sure you're getting the new version.
I'm gradually re-uploading the videos and keeping an eye on bandwidth. So far 100 of the videos are back on the page, so I'm about half done. It seems that lots of people are going straight for the full Legend episodes - yikes!
But so far the bandwidth is still within reasonable limits, so good news!
