We don't accept Vimeo links I'm afraid, only YouTube or direct hosting links.

That stinks. What's a direct hosting link.

You have to be able to link directly to the video file, not to a page containing the video file.

Just out of curiosity, how difficult is it to add the capability to accept Vimeo links, Tarn? It would certainly be nice because I find Vimeo's embedding options to be superior and quality to be better.

Wow. I'm really glad that you posted this. I thought all you had to do was post a link to the page that contained your video. I was starting to think that FXhome was mad at me or something because I submitted a trailer to the cinema back on October 29 2010 and it's still pending. I am such a tard... no lie dude.

Wo.Wo.Wo.Wo. What are you talking about. Not everyone is as smart as you guys.
I'm having the same problem as spydurhank. I posted a movie a long time ago and it still is pending. I thought Fxhome didn't like me or my movie. (Not that I like my movie really either). Go through the steps in English please because I really am a tard. Thanks for the help.

Either upload to Youtube or a personal web server. If you upload to youtube, you don't have to worry about getting a direct link. But if you upload to your own server, you will need to link directly to the actual video, not a page with the video embedded on it. Good luck!

O.k. I put the video on You Tube and I put this link in the Studio URL spot when you go to enter the video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxy7-9S_6PI
That was two days ago. Did I do it wrong?

We don't seem to have any pending moves from you in the list. You can't put the link in the Sutdio URL spot, that's where the link to your website should go.
You need to click the 'Add new file' link in your admin, and do it that way.

Where is the "Add new file link"? Sorry to be so stupid.
This is a step by step on what I did. I went into User movies,my movies, then add new movie. Then after that it goes onto the screen for the details of your movie. Title, image, category, description, studio and studio URL.
Then I click on Agree. Then it goes to "Thank you for updating your movie details. Your changes will be manually reviewed by our team and made live if accepted." There is no place to put a link of my video.
Sorry I have to be so difficult and stupid sounding. I know it must be annoying. Thanks so much for your help.

Go back to the My Movies page, and you'll see your movie listed in there. Click "Add new file", and it will ask you to enter the video info.

Yea I did that but there is no place to put the link to your movie if you don't have your own website.

Yes there is.
Follow these exact button clicks:
1. User Movies
2. My Movies
3. (Under your movie listing) Add New File.DON'T click "Add New Movie" because you've already done that.
It looks something like this:
Yours is likely not going to say Everything's Coming Up Roses, but instead, whatever the title of your film is, and it'll say Pending, instead of Live. Click Add new file, and then you'll see a page that looks like this:
Put your YouTube link in the box that says File URL, and the rest of the info in the corresponding boxes. Easy.
If you still can't get it after this, you should probably give up.

My movie is now being reviewed by the team. Thanks Aculag for the time and explanation.
+1 for you because I had this problem before but no one explained it right.(or I was too stupid to understand) Thanks again.
