I recently got an email from a user wondering if I had any good tips or trick s for searching for and adding media to make his lists better. Great question and through our back-and-forth emails decided that there are probably many people wondering the same thing.
At 10to1 we rely on our big brother Google to help us out with finding media, links and information. Our media grabber utilizes Google Images and Video to pick through the billions of media on the Internets.
To add pictures or video to the list:
1. Click “Get Media URL”
2. Type in a descriptive name for what you are looking for. It helps to be creative sometimes to find that EXACT picture or video. TIP - If you are having problems try 2 or 3 words to search more specifically or 1 word to search more broadly.
3. Select “Copy” to automatically post the picture to your list. Voila! You are done.
Search the Internets for your image. Once found right click or open apple click and select “Copy Image URL” for pictures. Then right click or open apple select “Paste” in to the URL field and select “Image”.
Video URL’s can be handled the exact same way. Instead of selecting “Image” you will select “Video”. You may also embed movies right in to the “Description” field. You will need to grab the embed URL that looks like this
<object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/R7yfISlGLNU&hl=en&fs=1″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/R7yfISlGLNU&hl=en&fs=1″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”425″ height=”344″></embed></object>
