I asked around about your question about your iReports showing up on other sites. The site you showed me used the embedable CNN iReport player. That means that it has a link to your original iReport.

 

Let me know if you see a site that you think is taking your stuff improperly and we'll check it out.

Hi everyone...I have a question.  When will the new update of 600MB for video happen?

July 15, 2010

Hi KCRep -- That is in effect now. So you should be able to upload larger files.

Thanks for checking on that particular website, David.  In the last few weeks since I've set up the Google alerts under my name and iReport user name, I've found my iReports on MANY outside websites.  I'll take a look to see if I can find links to my original iReports on the other sites, many of which are of travel.  I'm not sure I like my photos floating around out there on other sites that I did not submit them to.  I didn't even know there was a link to my original iReport.  Surely, most people just look at the main photo on the page, read the text and move on without searching for the tiny link to the original iReport website.

Just to let everyone know, I'm having some computer issues, so I apologize in advance if I drop in and out.

Did it happen yesterday or today, because I've been trying since the message went out and it doesnt work.  Since it takes almost 2 hrs of computer time I would like to make sure it actually has taken effect.

Markpel.  Gracias.  Igualmente.  :o)

David, Can I ask about putting spell check in titles?

Hello

@KCRep It went in to effect last Friday.

Sorry you're having trouble.

One downside of larger files is that they take longer to upload, so that gives it more time for it to go wrong.

@Jayberdz -- That's a good idea. One thing you could do in the meantime is write the title in the body of the iReport and then cut and paste it into the title field.

 

It's not the most elegant solution, but it might help.

davidw....the blog has a message telling us that it had not taken effect and that they were working on it.  Tyson even PM me yesterday that he would let me know when it was working.

July 15, 2010

 

Thanks

@KCRep -- I just checked with Tyson and he said it is working now. I wasn't aware that there had been an update.

But it is working now.

@JoyfulGypsy - I don't know if our friends at CNNI or World Sport are still covering the World Cup or not, but if you want to upload, I'm sure a lot of folks would like to see them.

July 15, 2010

EW, you made it..lol

Thanks David.  :) 

 

I have some really great pics (if I can say so myself  ;o) of the people, the crowds and their emotions.  But, I don't want to waste time editing and uploading videos and photos if they are just going to get buried under more current news and no one is going to see them.  I'm sure you understand.  If the folks at CNNI or World Sport are still covering the World Cup I would be happy to spend some time on that.  Would you be able to find out?

KyleHD -- We built one new one today that looks like it's going to be fun. It's for a new CNN International show called "Icon." http://ireport.cnn.com/ir-topic-stories.jspa?topicId=472601

They want you to send photos of you with your favorite musical icon.
