How do I insert a video into facebook?

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.

Where do I paste code into myspace?

15 Comments

I want to pimp my myspace. I got the code need to put in.
So, where do I paste the code into my profile??

Essential question – thanks Rach

If you are putting a video into your profile, you put the video code in whichever box you want it to be shown.

As for layout changes and css code, you should put it inside the ABOUT ME section. If you want to add code to code you already put in, you should insert it somewhere inside the style tags – to be more precise, put it right before the line which has the “/style” in it. That basically says that this is the end to your formatting code.

You can basically put the code wherever though. Just try it. and Send your questions!

Add any song to your Myspace profile

3 Comments

People are always asking me how to put up a song on myspace.

At first I told them the easy solution, which would be to find the band on myspace that performs that song, and if they have the option to, click add next to/under the song – and that will add that song to your profile.

Another easy solution is to have an Artist’s profile. In this case, you can upload 4 songs at a time. BUT, it is extremely shadey if the songs are not yours, because by uploading them this way, you are insinuating that these are songs created by you. So – be sure to upload only your own songs to your myspace profile.

I used to tell them these were the only solutions. It’s not true. if you have ever asked a question, someone else has also. And if you google it, you will see that someone else has found the answer already. Heres the answer…

So… What if the song you want is not on the artists page? This is the question most people are intending when they ask. I will assume you already have the song on mp3. If you don’t, I believe in you that you can get it without me being explicit here.

Keep in mind that most artists (and the suits they work for) don’t appreciate your use of their songs without permission, blah blah blah lawsuit blah blah copyright infringement. I will assume you created your own audio recording and put it on mp3…

Here is a website to make it all very simple for you. http://boomp3.com/en You can upload your mp3 or WMA, and embed it by cutting and pasting the code from the site to one of the sections in your profile (like About Me). The code will say EMBED next to it. EMBED is used whenever you want to put some code in your profile or elsewhere that will insert a player of some sort or an internet gadget.
