Just a user, not a coder.
Interested in ZeroNet's potential for a web less vulnerable to:
° regulatory capture (e.g. copyright laws dictated by lobby groups)
° takedowns (e.g. DMCA, EUCD, Article 13, domain seizures)
° blocks (e.g. ISPs, GFW)
° net partiality (e.g. preferential treatment for privileged content providers)
° corporate acquisitions, changes, neglect or demise (e.g. GeoCities, del.icio.us, Flickr, Tumblr)
° individual change, neglect or demise (e.g. linkrot; webmaster losing interest, disappearing or dying)
° money-making shennanigans supposedly justified by the cost of providing a service (e.g. advertising, tracking, privacy violations)
° bloat (wait for a 10MB page to load just so you can read a 10KB article)
° connection problems (as 0net can cache sites)
So now I'm going to upload video to Zeronet and hopefully embed it in my blog.

I saw a video on YouTube I wanted, but also knew YouTube likes to block downloading of videos.
At first I tried a download manager I already have installed, uGet. But:
I remembered a tool I'd heard of over the years, called youtube-dl. It's a command line tool, and I prefer GUI programs, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway.
.exeor the quotes around the URL, apparently.)
Max image size: 25kb (Tip: use GIMP or online compression tools to reduce resolution/quality!)

The video was already on KopyKate, visible in the "Airing Now" section (which displays the latest uploads). But I wanted to post it elsewhere.

I originally tried the following markdown which did not work:

In a ZeroTalk topic about this @kai0: recommended using the HTML code, and that worked!
@gluek: & @toyata: brought up an important point. Because of the way that Zeronet works, if a visitor to my blog has never visited KopyKate before, a KopyKate-hosted video will not load for them here on my blog. So it's probably a good idea to always provide a direct link for any embedded video hosted on another zite.
Originally, I used all the code @kai0: gave, but @SSDifnskdjfnsdjk: pointed out that the video auto-played when loading my blog (I hate that, but didn't realize because I have an extension to prevent that). So I cut out
@gluek: mentioned some techniques to host a video on my own zite (not KopyKate) involving optional files which @ssdifnskdjfnsdjk: goes into more here: ZeroTalk - How to create static site with big streamable videos
But that's an experiment for another day. Right now, I'm just glad I can embed a KopyKate video in my blog post.
Thanks to everyone who gave feedback and advice, here, on ZeroTalk and ZeroMe.
