Why would I want to host my videos on Piano TV?

There are a number of good reasons. Piano TV is a site that is totally dedicated to anything and everything that has to do with pianos and music. Other colossal web sites like U Tube has content about everything and anything including dirty laundry and automobile carburetors.

Since Piano TV is and always will be a much smaller site, our focus will always be much more targeted on the specifics and nuances of what we think makes the piano niche a very special domain of interest for the public. Furthermore, Piano TV is dedicated to providing auxiliary resources for our video contributors and advertising sponsors to facilitate the process of creating videos as seamless and spontaneous as possible.

How do I upload my video to Piano TV?

Once you have your video file on the hard drive of your computer you can effortlessly upload it from your hard drive to Piano TV. If you haven't signed in to Piano TV yet, you will be asked to sign in first. You can find a form at the bottom of the same page that will walk you through the sign in process. The sign in process enables us to filter out unwanted spammers from our system and to protect your privacy.

What are some useful features of Piano TV?

We'll go over a few basic features and functions that you see on many of the video pages. If you look at this screen shot, we will start just under the video and go counter clockwise. There is the Embed Video, Link to This Page, Creative Commons License, Upload Your Video Button and to the left there is the Expandable Menu that says "Site Key", "Piano Biz", "Music Videos" and "Educational Clips."

  1. The embed video is the html that is coded directly into the page without which there would be no video. Piano TV is set up as are many Video Sharing Sites to facilitate the "sharing" of that code for the web visitor so that he or she can essentially "walk away" with that code. Why would you want to do that?

    Piano TV makes getting the embed video code easy. Just place (left click) your cursor over the code then right click and scroll down to copy and where you left click. You now have to paste the code into either an html page, or an editor of some kind. We recommend notepad or some kind of very basic editor that does not embellish the code in any fashion. If you are a blogger or a social website user, you should know what all this means. We are working on creating some videos that can help the beginner gain a better understanding of all of this.

  2. Link to this page works the same way except it is there for people who want to link to the exact page that the code and the video is on.
  3. The Creative Commons License is basic license that we suggest our users use for sharing their videos on Piano TV and the internet. It does not supplant basic copyrighting concerns but it is for Piano TV users to clarify the extent of sharing that you want in place once the video is available online.
  4. By clicking on the Upload your Video button, you are taken to the login and sign up page.
  5. The box menu to the left is and expandable menu that contains many of the vital navigation links for the site in a different format.
