More and more MySpace users are discovering how to pimp their pages by embedding videos from MySpace into the mix of text and graphics that makes a profile come to life. These videos can also be embedded into your MySpace blog, or even left as comments for your friends! YouTube and MySpace seem to play really well together – the two of them are truly a winning combination.
Many people are confused as to how to use YouTube videos on MySpace. It’s really quite easy! Once you have done it a couple of times, it will seem as if you have been doing it forever. Then, you can have fun browsing through MySpace and choosing videos that go with your blog posting, videos that can stand alone as a comment, or videos that will live on your profile page and make a statement about you and your likes and dislikes.
Now, I’m sure you want to know just how to get that elusive YouTube video onto your MySpace, right?
o Go to YouTube and select the video that you want to use. This could take a few minutes or a few hours, depending on you.
o Look in the “About This Video” section and you will see the Embed code. It is beneath the URL box. Click on this code and choose “Copy” to copy the code to your clipboard.
o Let’s place this video in a blog post. Here’s how! Log into your MySpace page and find the link to your blog in the box that has your picture on it. When you are at your blog, find the link that says “Post New Blog”.
o Began your blog post. Add a subject, and then find the link that says “If you can’t input your Blog, click here”. You must follow this link so that MySpace won’t mess up the Embed code.
o Now, choose “Paste” from the Edit menu of your browser. You are going to paste the embed code right into the Body section of the blog post page. Take a good look at the YouTube embed code, because you will need to delete some of it. The parts of the code before
must be removed in order for this to work.
o Click preview and check to see if you can see the video with your title above it. If you do, you are ready to click the “Post Blog” button!
o Now check out your posted blog and admire your work!
To place a YouTube video on your profile page, you are going to copy and paste the YouTube embed code just as you did above, but instead of pasting on your blog page, you are going to place it in the About Me section of your profile. Simply go to the “Edit Profile” page and paste the entire code – no deleting needed – at the bottom of your “About Me” edit box. Click on Preview to make sure that it is showing up, and if everything looks good, you are ready to Save All Changes.
