I've just published a 'Pirates of the Caribbean' hub, with several Google videos imbedded. However, the only way to play the videos is to click on the 'Google' button and then on the 'Go to Google Videos' button that displays as a result. How do I set it up properly so that users can click on the 'play' button or load the video by clicking in the middle of the video screen?
Yes. Each video link is created by edting a video capsule.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Pirates-of-the-Caribbean is the hub.
The generated source for inserting the video looks like this:
insertVideo('Google', '4461777513965518284', 'videoGoogleSmall', '', false);
That's how it should look.
Click on menu at the bottom of the video, ignore the embed thing. Click on copy to clipboard bit below that, and you are ready!
Hehe, Chabrenas, I did exactly the same thing when I first linked a video.
Reckon I've fixed it now. Hope no-one was trying to view it while I messed up the changes first time round. Eventually did it the proper way and UNPUBLISHed until I'd done editing.
So... you want to write a hub about inserting videos, or shall I? There are probably a few folks around who could benefit from it.
Thanks again for the helpful hints, Kenny.
Please do write a hub about that, Chabrenas.
People will listen when I talk to them about art, but not about hub improvement. They'll just ignore me.
Ah-h-h-h-h. I'm sure you do yourself a disfavour. I'l wokr on it. Ideally, I should probably look for a free screen grabber so that I can show people... AND I'D BETTER GET IT RIGHT
That's right. People follow videos better than the written word.
I was horrified to see the recent stats showing how many US graduates never read a book again after they have left Uni (but I wonder if the UK is any better these days). Think I'd better learn how to draw comic strips and do animation.
My teaching hub is coming along very slowly. I've found free tools - Camstudio to do the screen capture, and Windows Movie maker to add titles and narrative and then edit it. The big delay will be developing the skills to do a decent job, but I'm beginning to think it will be a useful skill to have once I get there. Wonder if there are any experts on the subject on this forum?

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is seeing. Right now my only option to do that is in giant bold type in the header, or...

Do others think 50 video capsules in one hub is too many? LOLI didn't start out planning to have so many but my undiagnosed OCD kinda kicked in and I just couldn't stop.I tend to think for users with an older PC with not much RAM they would have issues with my hub. Works fine with my 2 Gigs of RAM...

Hello Hubbers,Just a quick question for the more experienced hubpage authors:For maximum revenues, do you recommend AdSense and Amazon together on your commercial hubs or *just* AdSense alone?From what I read it seems the bulk of revenues are via AdSense, but I could use some direct input and...

One of our goals this year is to simplify infrastructure and retire features that are seldom used. Deciding to retire something can be tough, but in the long run it is worth it. A leaner HubPages will not only perform better, but will allow us to focus our efforts on the features that are most...
