How to mash video with Claim the Earth (shortcut for youtube videos)

1) Visit a video sharing site such as YouTube or Yahoo Video
(recommended video sources: Eyespot, Google Video, Grouper, Jumpcut, Ourmedia, Revver, Videoegg, Vimeo, vSocial, YouTube )

2) Take a <embedded> string associated with a video.

For example:
  <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value=""></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>
<embed src='' flashvars='id=774628' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' width='425' height='350'></embed>

* Note: the "&" signs and contents afterwards have to be removed to work with Google Map API

3) Add prefix ",+Cincinnati,+OH+45202&link= " before the embedded video string and you will see the video mashed up with the addresses of your choices.

4) For locations without good geocoding support, use the ",-84.514046&link= " to mash your video onto the map

5) The "pin.php" utility is configurable with "type=", "zoom=", "center=" (or "address=") parameters. And, of course, the "link=" is the most useful parameter among them all.

Checkout the following examples (see location bar for syntax):

YouTube example

Yahoo Video example

Google video

* Note: if your "embedded" string uses double quote, your "href=" tag should use single quote, and vice versa.
