One of the great advantages of apple products is their top to bottom integration and push-button ease of use. I am constantly using the “publish to youtube” functionality in iMovie to get our content up on the web. Unfortunately, we had some problems with somewhat inappropriate cross-promoted videos appearing at the end of ours. As you can imagine, we had to devise a different way to share our content. My solution? MobileMe.
I already had the account which made it just as easy to click “publish to MobileMe” as it was to click, “Publish to Youtube.” But, we had a problem. How to embed the content in our non-MobileMe site? Insert the following code (with your information) and voila, embedded video! So, without further adieu:
<embed width=”480″ height=”272″ bgcolor=”000000″ scale=”aspect” autoplay=”true” src=”http://web.me.com/username/_gallery/100010/videoname”></embed>
Pretty self explanatory. To find the file name of your video just surf through your iDisk to /web/sites/_gallery/ and find the one that houses your video (that will also be the number you need to insert into the url after “_gallery”).
