Perhaps this is a tip I should keep to myself, but it doesn't seem to be documented anywhere and I think NCs should know about this revelation I had last night. You can embed presentations, documents in flash paper and even whole flash websites into your network using the Embed Video Option!!!
How did I arrive at this revelation?
Well at least on my network, land surveyors aren't terribly savvy at finding videos to embed and documents are more useful to them for sharing. So....Notice how the embed page says the following:
Add Videos From YouTube, Hulu, Vimeo or Another Service
I thought to myself......ANY EMBED CODE???
But why does it say nothing about thisin the help files on Ning? is it possible that they do not even know this???
The fact of the matter is that the embed video option really is nothing more than an ability to add an object within the RSS enclosure for that Videos Feed.
See it in action here using a Wix website for land surveyors support groups.
See it in action here using an Issuu Document.
I've tested this with several third party applications such as Wix, Slideshare, Scribd and Issuu and they work. If you test another service and it works, please add the name of the service below.
