The #1 cause of not being able to play video is that you don't have Flash in your system. It's a free download from Adobe at adobe.com/products/flashplayer. The #2 reason is that you are being blocked by a firewall. Usually this happens at corporate offices. You aren't checking stagebuddy.com out at work now are you? Seriously though, if you are having any difficulties, PLEASE LET US KNOW, we want to help: help@StageBuddy.com
UPLOADING VIDEO: We accept all of the same formats as YouTube. Pretty much any video format as long as it is under 100 megs. The larger the file, the longer it will take to upload. Right now there is no visual feedback while it uploads, so just be patient. Time depends on YOUR upload speed. Contact help@StageBuddy.com if you need any further assistance!
LINKING YOUTUBE, MYSPACE, GOOGLE AND VIMEO VIDEOS: You can just enter a link to your YouTube or Myspace video. Copy the 'embed' text on the YouTube/Myspace page and paste it into the StageBuddy submission (page two).
UPLOADING PICTURES: We accept pictures only in JPG, GIF, or PNG format - not PDF, Tiff or others. It will be displayed within a 320x240 box, so although any aspect ratio can be uploaded, you can get maximum impact if you size accordingly. Your "Poster" picture is the lead picture that is displayed throughout the site. If you can't upload a picture, it's size is probably too large.
