We can enter keywords and see the search results when we put in a News module - it would be great to be able to search You Tube from within HubPages instead of opening a separate page and copying across the URL once we have found a good video.
And what about a "video wall" option, with a dynamic keyword-based selection of current videos?
Why? It's hard enough finding decent videos using youtube's search facility.
Personally, I find the content I want for my hubs before I start putting them together.
I won't open a video capsule until I already have something to go in it.
Many of the videos are mis-tagged anyway, so I don't see the value of that option either.
I just like being able to do all the searching in the one place.
I'd love to be able to search Technorati for relevant blog feeds from inside HubPages, too.
For myself, I am basically a text-oriented person, so I don't have a whole bunch of pre-existing links for images, video, audio, etc. But I know multi-media is what the market wants, and it's what makes a Hub better than a page on an article site.
I guess I just need to bite the bullet and spend a few hours a week trawling for good, new multi-media content.
Or make some.
I don't have any pre existing links either. I find them as needed when I am doing the research for whatever I am writing about.
I guess it would be helpful, but there are so many sources, how could you search through all those in hubpages? Technorati and Youtube are only two. I probably look through 200 for some things.
I'm a bit of a Luddite when it comes to online video, I'm afraid.
I know about You Tube and Google video, and otherwise it's a black hole.
I just don't have time to watch all these videos people are posting!
I know some people love video, but for me it takes waaaay too long to get information that way. I can read a transcript of a 90-minute video in about 10 minutes, and pull out all the new information with about 80% retention.
There is no way I could ever bear to watch videos from 50 or 100 different sites.
Maybe I just need to stick a job on Rent-a-Coder or eLance to get someone else to do it for me!

Normally when you link a 'blog' to Technorati, you need to paste a link on your page to prove the blog is yours... how do you go about this with Hubpages?Its probably a simple solution, any thoughts welcome!

Hi all,Technorati seems like another great way of getting links and more traffic to your Hubs, but does it work for HubPages? I've searched high and low, and keep finding conflicting answers--for some it's worked,...

Should HubPages have a direct video upload option?I've just got a list of movies I plan to review for HubPages, and plans for my web show "Carl the Critic" to be posted on the site. But the thing is I think...

I tend to create long-form content. A table of contents or a search function at the top of a hub would greatly benefit my users who may already know a bit about the subject and are looking for something new.

A Bit over the generated requests from hubpages re the not meeting standards - I had three /four videos on this hub and was told that some or one (who knows which ones) had poor pixels or some such - so to fix it i took...

Hi. I'm hoping someone has a spare five minutes (and a good internet connection) to help me please. Because I live off the grid in the Aussie bush and use a slow and unreliable satellite internet connection, I cannot...
