Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first dip into the blogging trench, started out of my curiosity to know what actually is a blog. I try to put here my readings from various sources; books, blogs, sites. I also grab stuff from here & there and try to showcase it in my own style here. If you'd like my scribblings, please subscribe to my full text RSS feeds.

Currently I am experimenting a few new features on my blog, like Peekaboo and Post Summary; the reason for the slight distortion you see. I am hoping to frame up these soon, please bear with me!

I have been learning how to embed videos and images from various sources into blogger. Below I have described my efforts towards same.

I have googled a few posts for tutorials on how to embed images and videos into blogger posts. After reading a post by Peter Chen, I have learnt the basics of how to embed a video into Blogger. Silly me, all these days I was only watching videos on YouTube but never paid attention to what was on the right panel on the video pages. Only today I realized that YouTube also provides a code for users like me who would like to embed the videos on their posts. Immediately I copied this code and posted it here as you can see below.

Peter Chen also posted that we could resize the video window to suite our post and blog template. I have tried resizing the video window (from the source code available from YouTube) to a smaller size. When I previewed this after editing, I could not see the video window in the preview. Alarmed, I set back the height and width attributes of the video back to default and now I could see the video window in the preview too. Probably the code of the video has some sort of dependency on the size parameters too!!!

Following the same procedure, I have tried to embed an image file in the post. Changing the attributes of the source code of the video file to an image source did no good. Right now, I'm hunting for a tutorial on how to embed and image file on the posts. Expert bloggers may find this silly nothings...but being a novice in the vertical of blogging, I love to learn & experiment my questions.

Neways, here is the video for my earlier post Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot.

Hail Gaint Robot !!!
