What you can do

by EngageMedia August 20, 2012


  • Upload video or media content via a publishing web form.
  • You can assign a creative commons license to your work.
  • Vodcasting - generate a video feed which you can then import into a client such as iTunes or Miro which will automatically download new videos to your computer when a new video is updated. You could subscribe to the 'Latest Videos' feed, or to a specific Member's video feed, or pick your feed by topic or country.
  • You'll notice in your members area that you have three folders; videos, news and events. You can add more folders, files and pages here and generally use this space as your workspace. We don't want EngageMedia just to be a place where you upload and download video or media but where you communicate and organise. This will have a URL like: engagemedia.org/Members/username
  • Create a profile page about you and your video work which includes a listing of your video contributions to EngageMedia. Edit this page. This will have a URL like: engagemedia.org/author/username
  • Post an Event about a screening, workshop, festival, meeting, protest, exhibition ot gathering.
  • Post a News item about a current social or environmental issue, a work you are producing developments in the world of media and activism, tactical media, new participatory culture breeding on the Internet, or technical developments in media sharing on the internet.
  • Contact other Members of EngageMedia to discuss collaborations or just to say hello.
  • Comment on videos, media or postings after you've viewed them. Please try to be constructive at all times and consider your comments before pressing Save. :)
  • Create a list of favorite videos, video makers or pages by clicking on the love heart on each page. You can see a list of your favorites on your profile page and change them in your favorites folder in your workspace.
  • Send someone an email about a page you want them to see by clicking the null letter icon in the top right.
