-====== How to post a movie ====== 
- 
-===== The easy part ===== 
- 
-1. Create the movie somehow. You'll need to create a flash video file (.flv) and a .png or .jpg image of the same size (e.g. 400 x 300 pixels). 
- 
-2. Open up your blog in a browser. For me that is http://​www.channelflow.org/​dokuwiki/​doku.php/​gtspring2009:​gibson:​blog. 
- 
-3. Click an "​edit"​ button. 
-===== Upload the movie files ===== 
- 
-4a. Click the "add images"​ button, just above the edit window, and just left of the :-) button. ​ 
- 
-4b. An upload dialog box will open, looking something like this: 
- 
-{{gtspring2009:​howto:​uploadbox.png}} 
- 
-4c. Now this is really important: In the **Media Files** portion of the upload box, select **movies**  ​ 
-and then under that **yourname**. On the right-hand side of the box **movies:​yourname** will appear. ​ 
- 
-Note: 
-  * If **yourname** is not available as an option under **movies** in **Media Files**, you can create ​ it by prepending "​yourname:"​ to the filename in "​upload as" box on the right. ​ 
-  * dokuwiki converts all capitals to lowercase on uploaded filenames. Pay attention to this   when entering the movie file names in the flashplayer code below. ​ 
-  * **You //have// to upload your movie files to movies:​yourname. It won't work if you upload them any place else.** 
- 
- 
-\\ 
-4d. Select the movie files to upload and upload them. 
- 
-===== Put the movie in the blog ===== 
- 
-5. Now add a line like the following to your blog, with appropriate substitutions. 
- 
-   <​flashplayer width="​400"​ height="​320">​file=/​movies/​gibson/​p76p82.flv&​image=/​movies/​gibson/​p76p82.png&​repeat=none</​flashplayer>​ 
- 
-The %%<​flashplayer ...%% tag should be flush with the left margin --no spaces before it. Note that the size is specified as 400 x 320 
-pixels, 20 pixels more in height than the 400 x 300 images size shown in the above dialog box. The 20 extra pixels are for the flashplayer 
-controls. 
- 
-6. Click on ''​Preview''​ or ''​Save''​ and voil√°! There is a flash video embedded in your blog! 
- 
-<​flashplayer width="​400"​ height="​320">​file=/​movies/​gibson/​p76p82.flv&​image=/​movies/​gibson/​p76p82.png&​repeat=none</​flashplayer>​ 
- 
-7. Peace and happiness reign throughout the study group as we gaze inquisitively at each other'​s animations.

-:-( if I want to put a thumbnail headshot next to my name where would I have to put the file in order to reference it?  //​[[jshyatt@gatech.edu|John Hyatt]] 2009-03-12 11:30//

- 
-8-) Click on ''​Add images and other files button''​. The upload window comes up. Click on :​gtspring2009:​ (or :​chaosbook:​) in its left ''​Media files''​ column. Browse for your file. Prefix its name appropriately,​ for example with :​path_to_your_blog:​. Upload. --- //​[[predrag.cvitanovic@physics.gatech.edu|Predrag Cvitanovic]] 2009-03-09//​
