The “Share” urls are slightly different for each site:

youtube-share
Youtube’s share url is located by clicking the “Share” link which appears under the video . 

vimeo-share
Vimeo requires that you copy the video’s url from the address bar, or select the share option which appears as a rollover on the video and select the link from there. 

vine-share 
Vine requires that you share the video on Twitter first. Make sure you add the #tangledstreets hashtag before uploading and then you can use the share option again to send or copy the embed link.

MP4: You can also upload a .mp4 any other video format is incompatible and we strongly advise against this as it may take a long time and mobile users won’t be able to view your video! -  using one of the video sites from above is by far the easiest option!
