How to use 'Share' and 'Publicize' (Bookmarking and Embedding)

permalink   Tue, Jun 3, 2008 @ 10:19 PM
Whenever you see a group of images that look like

This means you can Share or Publicize the thing(s) you are currently looking. (For geeks: Share means Bookmark, Publicize means Embed.)

We currently support Sharing and Publicize for uploads, people’s profiles and playlists.

If you click on those images you are taken to a screen that will allow you to:

- Use a “social bookmarking” site like delicious, Digg, or Yahoo! etc. to share the page or playlist


- Embed a set of uploads into your blog or MySpace page formatted to your choosing, including in a Flash (tm) player. If you’ve ever used YouTube’s ‘embed’ feature, this is the same thing except instead of a video, you would get a list of links to uploads or a Flash music player, etc.

Is there a tool for FaceBook? I can’t find it on the Share page. I’ve been doing ‘download this page’, copying the link location of the MP3, and placing it as a link on FB.

we’re still waiting for someone to step up and write one ;) We’re an Open Source project so we’ll take any working code.

in the meantime keep plugging the way you’re doing it. Thanks!

I’m trying to embed the attribution info into the video description on my YouTube video but get this error message:

“Brackets aren’t allowed in your description.”

Is there a work around for this? Should I just use the link to the artist’s page on CCmixter?

Hi there. Yes, youtube won’t allow brackets. That embed is for a regular webpage. Simply attribute like this:

Song Title by Artist Name
URL of song you’re using on ccMixter
license type (CC BY OR CC BY NC)
