Displaying large photos - test

Refer to Lewis Chew - world's youngest cyclist where 3 photos are displayed using different methods of uploading.
.

Result of the test: You cannot display photo full-size by uploading to a free photobucket account. The photo is resized to 800 pixels wide photo.

To display photo in its full size, I suspect you would have to either host the photo in a paid photobucket account or, as proven in Lewis Chew - world's youngest cyclist, get Blogger to host the photo and then use <img src="photo URL" /> to display the photo.

Testing Youtube Video "No longer available"

Testing Youtube widespread problem, error message:

"This video is no longer available".

Now it is not that this video uploaded to Youtube had broken Youtube's TOS (Terms of Service) or infringed some one's copyright. There are widespread report of users of Youtube seeing the misleading "We're sorry, this video is no longer available". We are embedding this video here and will check later to see if the problem still persist or to check if other surfers also faced the same problem in viewing the video.

Please leave your comments.

UPDATE 4.00pm Sunday 10 August 2008: The above video is not viewable because the video is more than 10 minutes. Other videos may occasionally display the same error messages. This can be solved by clearing cache and cookies. You can view 2 videos at Low impact, muscle strengthening aerobic exercise which had also initially displayed the "This video is no longer available" error message, but which was viewable after clearing cache and cookies.
