How do I add the feature to upload images/video?

How do I get my users to be able to upload photos/pics/images both to their profile pic and when posting using the upload/browse feature from their personal computer so, they do not have to type in a URL? Also, is there a way to upload video such as youtube to a category, board, or a topic post so, users can share videos by browsing their personal computer?

I have: Enable members to select profile avatars - checked and allow members to upload avatar images (gif, png, jpg, jpeg) on the server - checked. I have the browse option for Admin but, not for my member users.

"Each" Individual member should select "their" personal preferences.

All I see under UserCP/Profile/Options is:

Personalized Picture:
- Select one picture name from the list at the right side.
- Or enter the URL to your own picture.
The web URL to your own image must be in the following form:
http: // www.mypage.com / mypic.gif
Your image must be in .gif, .png, .jpg or .jpeg format.
Note: Your images may be resized. 

Only those 2 options whereas my Admin has the 3rd option to select an image-file to upload on our server. My user doesn't even have the option to select.

Then you don't have
Allow members to upload avatar images (gif, png, jpg, jpeg) on the server?      
At right, the avatar directory path is displayed (top) and
whether the directory exists and has the correct permissions (Yes/No).      /home/memberdir/domain.com/Forum/yabbfiles/avatars/UserAvatars
Yes

in Admin Center > Forum Settings - Members Tab

If you have above Selected and confirmed, then this appears in Profile Options:
Your image must be in .gif, .png, .jpg or .jpeg format.
- Or select an image-file to upload on our server.
The image must have the following format: .gif, .png, .jpg or .jpeg
The maximum allowed file-size is: 100 KB
Note: Your images may be resized.

I have it checked and "Yes" for the other one. It's weird. I have the "Or select an image-file to upload on our server" option for my "admin" but, not for my user. Something is not giving my user that option.

What have you got selected for this setting:

Quote:
Specify the Member Groups that are allowed to upload avatars:
If no Member Group is selected, all Member Groups are enabled.
Use Ctrl or Shift to select/deselect multiple groups.

If you want all members to be able to upload avatars, make sure that nothing is selected in the box.

That worked. Thanks. I had them all selected which I would assume would give that option to everyone. Once I deselected everyone, it worked.
