John Edwards is feeling pretty

First posted on my old Yahoo 360 blog Tuesday June 5, 2007 - 03:28pm (CDT)

Yes, I'm relocating content from Livejournal, starting with this short piece posted to Youtube by OneoftheImmortals.

Mildly amusing, and an opportunity for Edwards to show a lot more class than some of his semi-anonymous detractors, which he did. (Video posted by wnycradio).

But that I could say the same of the Livejournal community, where I first posted this, but ... oh, forget it. If you wanted to post a film on YouTube on your own 360 blog, or any other site for that matter, here's the code that I used to post the first film, which I found floating around somewhere:

<center><embed src= width=425 height=350 type=application/x-shockwave-flash allowScriptAccess="none" wmode="transparent"> </center></embed>

The first film is found at this url on Youtube

so if you have a film at location

where "ID" is some alphanumeric string, and you replace "2AE847UXu3Q" with the string (in the url for the film you want) in the code above, you should get a code snippet that will allow you to insert the film of your choice on the page of your choice. Livejournal, Blogger and a few other blogging hosts seem to require special coding, though, so check with YouTube's site about that if you wish to post a film to another blog hosting service.
