    Here is how you can post a Relive Video so it shows a graphic and then runs the video when you click on it.
    I've discovered that to make this work you need to open the video, then right click on the video and "open it in another window" which then gives you the address or link that works below:

    I've replaced a few [ ] with {} to enable me to show the actual links.

    {url=https://video.relive.cc/ADD "Open in New Tab"LINK HERE".MP4]{img]https://video.relive.cc/ ADD "Open in New Tab" LINK HERE".png[/img][/url}



    It works on my laptop but not on my android phone or tablet.

    Here is an example:

    [​IMG]

    And with the brackets changed so you can see how I posted the actual links -

    Some themed posts ... sorry if there are some repeated pics the days have blurred a little!

    These are from 2 days ago on the N2.

    360 bends in about 75kms of road!

    We left Salema this morning for Monchique. Only a short trip of about 120 kms. I set the GPS to curvy roads which was fun!

    We found this cool little town that’s was good for morning coffee. Lots of art anda bohemian crowd for coffee!

    Then into Monchique which was an an adventure in its self. We are staying high up in the old town with steep narrow cobble streets! Marianne did very well as pillion!

    Our instructions were challenging!

    We found the place, it’s charming and cosy.

    Our hosts have no English and are super friendly and helpful.

    We walked up to a crazy abandoned convent tonight before dinner! A cross between tomb raiders and Ankor Wat!

    It was ruined in the 1700s by an earthquake! Amazingly some tiles on the walls survived. It must have been amazing! It’s now cared for but a private owner who shows you thru, he uses it as a giant chicken coup! How the mighty fall!

    Not too many pics today which is a shame as the road was amazing this morning running out of Monchique. We came up thru the hills and took the ferry to enter Lisbon from the south.

    Julie arrived today so I have to be brief as we have catching up to do!

    Can't "like" that last one Peter. How much damage was done that it cost 706 euro? Insurance not available at time of rental?

    I talked to the owner who told me it’s a 1942 Chang Jiang CJ750 Yangtze. A Chinese copy of a Russian copy of a German BMW R71 originally built in 1938. You might say it lost a lot in the translation! But it sounded good and was fun!

    Off to ride a tram! The tram tracks look like they could give you a scare in the bike!

    Well we ride at dawn to Sintra then Evora to sleep! How exciting!!

    Another day we saw the city here! But excited for the moto! Wild Ginger a tad nervous as she’s not been with with me on the bike for nearly 24 months with all the COVID! lockdowns we’ve had in Oz!

    Meanwhile some shots from our day as tourists, not travelers!

    We rode this tram across town this morning!
