Embedding Videos

If you used Google Earth enough, you've probably seen videos embedded in placemark balloons. But did you know how ridiculously easy it is to create these youself? Try this one minute tutorial:
  1. Go to YouTube and find your favorite video.
  2. In the Embed field (right of the video), select and copy the code.
  3. In Google Earth, navigate to the appropriate location and create a placemark. For example, for a video filmed in a New York neighborhood, create your placemark in that location.
  4. In the Edit Placemark dialog box, in the Description tab and field, paste the YouTube code. Click OK.
Done. Click the placemark to view your video. Of course you can now share and publish this placemark.
