Can you please tell me what MySpacetv.com is?
Oooh, I’m so glad you asked! If you’re an avid MySpace user or if you just like to watch videos online, I promise you’re going to love MySpacetv.com. This new Web site is powered by the regular MySpace site, but it brings its own flare to the table as well. It reminds me a lot of YouTube, but with its ability to work right along with MySpace, it takes everything to the next level. Let’s check it all out, shall we?!
First of all, the Web address for MySpacetv is http://vids.myspace.com/. That link will take you to the main page of MySpacetv. When you first get there, you will see so many different things. I’m not sure what each of you will go to first, because everyone’s interests are different, but I instantly saw the Hot Video section. There’s a new video shown in that spot each day and it’s always something eye-catching. For example, today when I visited the site, there was a video there called “X-Wing.” It’s a short video of an X-Wing launch. All of the video’s information can be found underneath the player, including who submitted the video, what time it was submitted, how many views it has gotten and there will always be a short description of the video there as well.
Below the Hot Video section, you will see an area for More Featured Videos. There are always new ones being showcased in that section and it’s just fun to browse through them for awhile. Now, another thing you might notice is a little rating box located next to each video. For each video you watch, you have the option of rating it. If you like it, hit the Booyah button or if you don’t care for it, hit the No Way button. Your vote will then be added to the video’s percentage for all to see. Isn’t it nice to be able to share your opinion with everyone else? I sure enjoy it!
Along the top of the page, you will see the tabs of Home, Video Charts, Categories, Channels and My Videos. The Home tab will take you right back to the page we were just talking about. So, if you want to see another Hot Video, for example, click on that. The Video Charts tab will take you to a page that shows that day’s Top Plays. They’re just some of the videos on MySpacetv that received rave reviews, so if you like watching good videos, you’ll probably want to check that page out. The Categories tab gives you a list of all the video categories you can find on MySpacetv. Some of them are Animals, Comedy and Humor, Extreme Videos, Music, Travel and Vacations and Sports, among others. Next, the Channels tab will show you some of the users who are signed up for MySpacetv and lastly, the My Videos tab will show the videos you have uploaded yourself.
Continuing on with that, with MySpacetv, you can add your favorite videos to your MySpace profile. To do so, you just need to be logged in to your account. Once you are, find a video you’d like to add to your profile and click on the Add to Profile link next to it. For example, I found this really cute video of a little boy trying to drink water from a hose and I wanted to put it in my MySpace profile. So, I clicked on the Add to Profile link and it was done instantly. You don’t even have to mess with any of the changes yourself like you do when you update your profile. Now, this cute little video is in my profile where all my friends can see it. How cool is that?!
Along with that, you can add a video to a bulletin, you can e-mail it to your friends, you can save it to your favorites or you can even include it with your blog. All the links you need to do all of that can be found right under each video you watch. Even more, you can add comments to the videos you watch as well. You know, just like you leave comments for your friends on MySpace. It’s just another way you can share your opinion about certain videos you see on MySpacetv.com.
Now, if you have a certain video you want to watch, you can search for it with the search box on the homepage. Just type in a few keywords and some video choices will pop up for you. That way, if you happen to lose track of one of your favorite videos, you can find it quickly. Or, if you have something in mind that you would like to watch a video about, a few keywords will show you the options you can choose from. There really is something for everyone on MySpacetv!
MySpacetv.com is currently still in the beta version, but it comes with all the latest features. Again, you do need a MySpace account to be able to add your own videos, but if you just want to browse through the videos, you can do so without signing up for anything. Just go to the Web site and start looking. It really couldn’t be any easier or enjoyable to use! There’s even an FAQ section here if you have any additional questions or concerns about it. Beware though, this site is addictive! If you start looking through the videos, you might not be able to stop yourself. I’m warning you. Have fun, my MySpace friends!
