How do I install .jad or .jar files on my blackberry?

The problem is that most people download these on their computers and expect to load it onto their blackberrys through the desktop manager.
Don’t do this.
Browse straight to the download link from your blackberry and download it there. The file should automatically load on your blackberry.

How do I insert a video into facebook?

11 Comments

Heres a question that has totally been under the radar:
How do I put a video onto facebook?

The book barely mentions this, but it is possible! Heres how you do it:

First things first, you must have the video already hosted by another website. So this means they are basically giving in to what the people want (post videos on their profile), rather than inspiring creativity like myspace might be doing by hosting their own videos. thats fine. I just wanted to point that out. maybe its better this way. its very clean here.

click on Posted Items on the left side
Now, you copy the URL of the video you want to insert into your profile.
paste that link into the Post a Link field on the right.

It will now appear on the Posted Items or Mini-feed section on your profile

These videos actually work well and look great on the site. kudos to facebook for making it simple like this.

also, I hear there are sites that have a button to “share on facebook” where you can share straight from their site. they use the word “partner” in the description, so that makes it sound boring. But look out for that.

You can press the share button to send the video to your friends too

also, they made a bookmarklet function. you install it by dragging the icon to your bar ( which is pretty cool actually ). I haven’t done it because I dont want any more crap on my machine. but this is just another option with this share function.

How to resize videos in myspace (or any other site)

How do make the videos that I put in my myspace profile smaller? or bigger?
How do I resize videos?

Heres the solution:
you  embed your videos as usual in your myspace

Now, you go to the code which contains the code for the embedded video. In that area, look for the code which says something like: height=”###” width=”###” – it should be near the beginning.

This is the code which tells myspace (or any other site) the dimensions for your video.

Now, take those numbers and change them larger or smaller – but keep the same ratio.
For example, the  youtube videos will have a width and height of 425 and 350
You want to adjust these so that the ratio of width to height is the same, however you adjust it. In this example, if you want to make it half as big, you would make the new W = 212 and H=175.
if you want to make it twice as big, you would make the width 850 and the height 700.
