'Paug Media Center
Now theres a way to more easily share media with each other on the 'paug, at the 'Paug Media Center
.There are 5 "Public" albums for sharing different types of media.
The 'Paug Public Phish Photo Album
is for sharing your photos taken at Phish concerts. You dont have to have taken the photo, it just needs to be of Phish. Please keep this to actual photos, and not other types of image like animated images or collages. Max dimension is 3648 on any side. I can up this if needed. You must have at least 50 posts to upload a photo to this album. Users with 300 or more posts get their images auto-approved. Users with 299 or less must wait for approval before their images are viewable by other members.
The 'Paug Public Phish mp3 Album
is for sharing LEGAL [NO LIVEPHISH.COM SBD's or LIVEPHISH CD RIPS] Phish audio files. Max file size is 99MB. You must have 300 or more posts to add audio to this album.
The 'Paug Public Phish YouTube Video Album
is an album where you can embed youtube videos. These should be at or about Phish or Phish shows. Please stay on topic.
The 'Paug Public Random Images Album
is where you can post those animated images, those often used images from around the forum, extra smileys, facepalms, lolcats, you get the picture... You must have at least 50 posts to upload a photo to this album. Users with 300 or more posts get their images auto-approved. Users with 299 or less must wait for approval before their images are viewable by other members.
The 'Paug Public Legal (non-Phish) mp3 Album
is where you post any LEGAL non-Phish .mp3's that you would like to share. Max filesize is 99MB. Users must have 300 or more posts to upload to this album. PLEASE APPROPRIATELY NAME AND DESCRIBE THE FILES THAT YOU UPLOAD!!
Attaching icon images is also nice, but not entirely necessary. But, some anal retentive admin is probably going to come in behind you and do it anyway, so save us some time and please do it yourself. NOTE ABOUT AUDIO FILES
in either audio album, or any you create of your own
Currently only .mp3 is supported. This will be changed shortly. Personal Albums
Users with 300 or more posts can create their own personal albums. If you have a lot of photos that you have taken that you want to share, you can make your own photo album. If youve taped or transferred or mastered a couple of shows and want to share some mp3s, make your own album and share them there. If you have a ton of videos that youve taped and uploaded to youtube, make your own album and embed them there. Posts links to your personal albums in your forums signature. Usage of the 'Paug Media Center
Beyond just having the albums to browse and enjoy, they also make it stupidly easy to embed your media into posts around the forum. From every individual item page
you can watch or listen to the files, but you can also rate them, as well as grab that item's "BBC embed code
To attach this mp3
, I would use this code which is taken from the file's "BBC embed code
[smg id=35 type=av]
Which would embed that mp3 into the thread, as seen here:
[smg id=35 type=av]
If I want to embed this photo
, I would use this code, which is taken from the image's "BBC embed code
Which would post:
[smg id=38]PROBLEM WITH EMBEDDING YOUTUBE VIDEOS FROM OUR ALBUM TO THREADS
Currently, there are errors if you embed a youtube video into an album in the Media Center and then use the "BBC embed code
" code to embed it into a thread. It will not even let you make the post. This is of little consequence, because youtube videos are automatically embedded if you just post the link to the video. In fact, it will automatically embed videos from quite a few sites, so if you have a flash video on some random site, you can post the link and it might just embed automatically.
Please use these new features. If youre a "power user," make an album and upload your photos. Upload some videos youve shot, or link to some of your youtubes. If youre always posting images instead of actually talking, stick them all in the random gallery so that we can all use them to easily mock you. If youre listening to a hawt jam on your walkman, rip that shit and upload it for the rest of us. Then post a sweet blog, and embed the mp3 at the top as the soundtrack. Youre so fuckin emo.
