Reason I'm starting this discussion is because some articles such as Rogue's Den have videos that may/may not been asked permission from the maker to use in the article. What I'm suggesting now is we put a rule/policy that the user who is putting the video in asks the maker of the video permission then uploads. You wouldn't like it if someone put your best video on some horrible place. Runecrafting.gif Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 09:29, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I thought we weren't allowed to use videos on articles? I remembered that we added a video on the DnD location article before. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 09:52, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - As per the still awaiting consensus media policy videos are not technically there is no harm in using videos in articles. But videos uploaded to Youtube do not belong to the uploader in a way similar to how animations/pictures/edits do not belong to anyone here. Youtube provides embed codes for any video on the website because they encourage people posting the videos everywhere. Also, please read Youtube's TOS [1] and also have a look at this [2]Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 10:33, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

We follow the law and that's all we need. But, embedded videos are a ridiculous thing to have here. So I changed that embed to a link in the article. Feel free to do so anywhere you see a vid. Please and thanks.--Degenret01 12:33, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

If people want to keep their videos for personal use, they can make them private. We don't have to ask anyone's permission; they've automatically given it by uploading it to YouTube. User:Vimescarrot 12:26, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Support - as per all. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 14:04, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

When half go one way and half the other, how do you use "per all"?--Degenret01 15:04, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Lol, be nice Murphy Wink 03:31, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Easily. You're agreeing with everyone who posted sentiments which you support, and you make that demographic clear by stating which side you support. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:18, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
That group posted nothing substantial.--Degenret01 16:27, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
That's not really relevant to the question. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:37, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Change Embedded to Link - I agree with Murphy. I used to run the video in the Distractions and Diversions Locations but the link works just as good.

Oppose These videos are not copyrighted, as far as I know. Therefore, no permission is needed. Not only that, but if we were to start asking permission, that would hold back the time it takes to improve articles. I also believe this Wiki would be better if it had more videos. (Maybe some done by the professional editors or the ones uploaded on JaGeX's official channel.) Allonym 13:03, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

There's no such thing as a professional editor. At the very least, not on this wiki. Oh, and Jagex is spelt thusly. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 17:49, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Eh, I guess I meant the editors that are actually good editors. You got the point.. I think. --Allonym 08:51, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Oppose Youtube allows people to embed videos into other sites. There is a specific option when you upload a video as you weither you would like other people to be able to embed videos onto other websites. This means that if we should embed a video and the video is able to be embedded then we do not need permisson as the user has allowed websites to embed his/her video. but seriously Mo think of this practically how are we going to get a response from a youtube user(many would ignore the e-mail/comment) and who would do it? i certainly wouldn't but feel free to do so if you have the time Slayer Timwac talk Fire cape.png 18:29, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
