Since publicizing it, I've ironed out a few bugs, and have been awaiting user interaction / commentary / feedback ever since.

Maybe for self loading rifles instead of having kalishnikov and AR have seperate tabs for piston, DI, and recoil operated? That should incorporate 99% of all self loading rifles minus crazy contraptions like the GAU-8 and m134 etc

It would be nice to have a common link to videos but some of us a not computer savvy and would need step by step instructions. So far I've created an account but have no idea on how to add a video so I can then link to it through a thread.

We have instructions on the site ( Usage | FAQ ) and a "monkey see monkey do" page ( Embedding )

They may be technically challenging, so there are two admins on site to help you.

You may ̶P̶M̶ ̶o̶r̶ call me ( see signature ) if you wish, and I can try to help you out.

Edited: On second thought, it'd probably be best to give me a ring when you have some time, and I can help you in real time.

Nails I will be contacting you shortly about posting my future gun vids and linking them this way. Been holding off on releasing a few because I refuse to give Youtube any more free revenue.

I've noticed a few new signups but nobody seems to be doing anything.

I'm open to suggestions / constructive criticism / "i like this" / "i don't like this"

That is the reason it exists





Factoid: The HTML5 video spec allows folks to host their videos anywhere and embed them wherever they have privileges.

No more needing a specialized service to upload vids to for the purposes of display.

Ok thank you, when I clicked on the AK videos it says flash only.

Quick question, if I wanted to upload some videos but don't have a website, will it support MS onedrive? Thx

That's your browser and/or browser plugins screwing you.

The service is HTML5 compliant and has zero flash content ( flash is a high security risk )

Dunno. Haven't had access to any videos hosted on onedrive to test with.

In theory, if John Q. Public can see the video on onedrive, it should work on the 2A Media site.

Can you change it so that the sound volume isn't maxed out when the video starts?
I don't know if guys like Robski or Mr.GunsnGear look much in General Discussion. You may have to point them in the right direction.

Volume varies between videos, so that's not something that's ever gonna work out.

I would like to see this organized by thumbnails of the videos with the description underneath, instead of you having to click on the description to see the video. Much like youtubes layout. Most people have short attention spans, and if forced to read, we lose interest and go elsewhere.
Perhaps integrate recommendations based on cookies sometime in the future if that wouldn't be too difficult.

That's not what I meant. The little slider for volume control is always at maximum when I click on a video.
