Please note that this is an experimental feature. Processing your laps may take a few hours, but you should get an email back when your laps have been processed, even if there were issues. Make sure to check your spam folder first, but contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not getting any email back from Serious-Racing Uploads.
Go to one of your tracks and select one or more laps from a sessions where you want to change time or vehicle. Click 'Edit' at the top right.
You now see a dialog with current session time and vehicle. If you have selected laps from multiple sessions you can only change the vehicle. Make the changes you need and click 'Save'. All laps in the session will be automatically changed.
Please make sure your video is set to Public on Youtube. Go to one of your tracks and select a single lap you want to add video to. Click ‘Edit’ at the top right of the page. Tap the ‘Add a Youtube video’ link:
Add the link to your Youtube video in the first field. Fill in the exact time where your lap starts in the second field. You can specify minutes, seconds, and milliseconds for the most realistic replay.
You can find the link to your video on the Youtube site in the share area:
You can change the video link or start time by selecting the lap again and tapping ‘Edit’. And you can also remove the video completely if you change your mind:
By default, only the fastest lap of each of your tracks can be viewed by people you are friends with. If you want to show a lap to a wider circle of people, go to your list of laps and look out for the share icon:
Tap it to open the share dialog, where you can copy and paste the link to your lap, or share it directly to Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.
Press ‘Done’ or the close button when you are finished. The share icon will show up red now the lap is shared. If you want to stop sharing the lap, press ‘Stop sharing this lap’ and it won't be available anymore.
You can also share a lap from the lap view by tapping the share icon next to your name. Please note that you can only share one lap at a time, not a comparison.
By default, when you compare with friends, you only get their fastest lap. There is a workaround if you want to compare with another lap, for example laps with rainy conditions.
First, your friend has to share their rainy lap, and you go view the share. Now, click Log in at the top right of the page, or in the menu on mobile. If you have laps on the same track, you will now go to a page where you can select one of your own laps to compare with the lap your friend shared.
