Video Sitemaps Question

Msg#: 4123094 posted 6:43 pm on Apr 27, 2010 (gmt 0)
I am making a video sitemap (to submit to google) for the first time. The instructions that google gives imply that creating this is very straightforward, however, I've found a couple of things to be confusing. It may have to do with the videos on the site - they don't fall into the format that the example sitemap uses.

Right now, I'm just trying to find the <video:content_loc> and <video:player_loc> information. I *think* it's in this piece of code:

<param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=/files/Clear_Skin_3&streamName=/files/Video/41/Sobel-Strategy-Room0&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=true" />
<embed src="/files/FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" flashvars="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=/files/Clear_Skin_3&streamName=/files/Video/41/Sobel-Strategy-Room0&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=true"

But I don't really know. Can anyone help me out? I've got to do this for 6 other videos as well...

you don't have to include both, just one or the other. <video:content_loc> is the URL of the video file on your server and <video:player_loc> is the actual player URL.

If you can't figure out one, go for the other. To test it, just add 1 video, submit it to Google and wait until it's been crawled and see what errors (or not) it throws.
