Publishing to a MobileMe web gallery

From: iMovie 11 Essential Training

Video: Publishing to a MobileMe web gallery

The next option that's available for sharing your movie project is to publish it to a MobileMe gallery. As you probably know, MobileMe is Apple's Internet-based service that provides you with web hosting space, e-mail addresses, backup storage, and a ton of other services, for about $100 per year. And one of those other services is the hosting of web, photo, and movie galleries. An iMovie web gallery allows you to quickly and easily share pictures and movies with friends and family by posting them to your MobileMe account and displaying them in an attractive and easy-to-use interface.

Publishing to a MobileMe web gallery

The next option that's available for sharing your movie project is to publish it to a MobileMe gallery. As you probably know, MobileMe is Apple's Internet-based service that provides you with web hosting space, e-mail addresses, backup storage, and a ton of other services, for about $100 per year. And one of those other services is the hosting of web, photo, and movie galleries. An iMovie web gallery allows you to quickly and easily share pictures and movies with friends and family by posting them to your MobileMe account and displaying them in an attractive and easy-to-use interface.

Now if you aren't a MobileMe subscriber, you can still try out this feature if you like by going to apple.com/mobileme and signing up for a free 60-day trial account. You will get access to all the features of MobileMe to try out, the only limitation being you won't get the full amount of storage space that members get. But you will get enough to try out the service to see if it's worth your while. So if you want to try out publishing your movies to a MobileMe gallery, sign up for a trial account, and once you have signed up, you will need to enter your user information into your Mac. You do this by going to your System Preferences, and in here you will find MobileMe, and then enter your member name and password, and then click Sign In.

This information has to be entered here in System Preferences in order for iMovie to be able to publish to your account. So now that that info is published, I can go back to iMovie and choose Share > MobileMe gallery, and now all I have to do is fill out this information. I will leave the Title called Surfing Ventura. I could type a short description here. Next, we can choose which sizes we want to publish.

The more sizes you choose, the more options people will have when they visit your site. So if they're visiting on an iPhone, they could choose from the Tiny, Mobile, or Medium sizes, or maybe even the Large size if you allow that as well. Again, you can roll over i icon to see how large these files are going to be. Now, in interest of saving some time, I am just going to go with the Mobile and Medium sizes here. We can choose whether our video are viewable by everyone or only me, but you choose Edit Names and Passwords if you want to password-protect your movie. This is a nice way to be able to publish your movie yet only allow family and friends to whom you provide the password to see the movie.

If you want to make it harder for people to find your movie, if you don't password protect it, you can choose Hide movie on my gallery homepage. That way, only people to whom you have provided actual address of the movie will be able to find it. Finally, we have Allow movie to be downloaded, which if checked, will allow your visitors to download a copy of the movie onto their own computers, so they will be watch it off their computer instead of having to connect to the Internet each time they want to watch it. Once you have made your selections in here, just click Publish. iMovie is doing its thing. Now you might have noticed that it didn't have to compress the movie or prep it.

It started the uploading right away. That's because previously, I had already created a Medium and Mobile version of this movie when I exported it to iTunes. So iMovie is using those same versions to upload right now. And when it's done, we see this message telling me that the project has been published to the MobileMe gallery. It gives me the exact address, if I wanted to copy and paste that into my web browser. If you want to e-mail a friend with this information, you can just click Tell a Friend to open your e-mail program. You can click View to go directly to the gallery or just click OK to close this dialog box and stay in iMovie. Let's click View, and here is the video.

And notice we have the option to choose both Small and Medium versions of the movie. So if somebody with a slower Internet connection visits or a lower-powered device visits, they can choose to play the smaller versions, so it doesn't take so long to view the entire movie. Notice we do have a Download button available because we allowed that, and up here we can see the title we created, and down here we can see the description. So that's how we publish our movies to a MobileMe gallery. Now, we can see that MobileMe has been added to the list of places we have shared our movie to.

From here, we can click on the menu to visit the site again, tell a friend, republish it, or remove it from the gallery. So that's how we publish our movies to a MobileMe web gallery. Again, if you like this service, you can change your trial account to a full account by going back to System Preferences and choosing to upgrade your account.
