What you should know about uploading videos to your blog

-videos can be saved in UThink (Create > Upload File), or kept on Media Mill. Media Mill gives you a way to automatically push a video directly into a new UThink entry: http://mediamill.cla.umn.edu/mediamill/help.php?helpDoc=uthinkPost

-If you want to set up a vodcast (that is, a feed that someone can follow to get your latest videos), you need to use RSS and not Atom (RSS allows media enclosures.) To install RSS templates on your blog, go to Design > Templates, then on the right side, click on Install Templates. Choose Podcasting Templates, then Continue. You'll notice a new index template called "RSS".

Now you have a new feed at the URL http://blog.lib.umn.edu/example-url/rss.xml . But how are people going to find it? Strictly speaking, you should have a line of code on your home page that says:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="http://blog.lib.umn.edu/example-url/rss.xml" />

That would go between and in your Main Index template. You could also create a sidebar widget with a link to the RSS link.

-Any other suggestions or corrections? Please post a comment.
