    If I click on the "Media" icon from the task bar above and


    I get a flag that says the specified URL cannot be embedded as media.

    You're close.

    In your video URL: https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Rally-Raid-CB500X/i-bVfpwqj/0/e79c120e/640/20180825_211506-640.mp4

    See the part after "Rally-Raid-CB500X"? The piece you need is after the "i-" and before the next "/". It's "bVfpwqj". So if you type:

    Code:
    [media=smugmug2]bVfpwqj[/media]
    You get this:



    I don't know why the forum SW doesn't pick it up automatically, and why you need to kludge it this way.

    Maybe we're both doing something wrong...
