        Old: <a href="/http://www.livescribe.com/" target="_blank">Livescribe</a>

5. Elegant way to embed pencasts in web pages

 

  1. Elegant method that Chuck Duncan uses here: http://www.dl.ket.org/physicsap/physicsapPCast/tocPencasts.html
  2. Notice how he uses some custom JavaScript functions to open pages with pencasts on them.
  3. Be sure to thank Chuck for figuring this out. 

 


Common steps (old way)

  1. Copy the set of code below for normal or large size and paste it into your favorite text editor (WordPad or TextPad).

  2. Visit My LiveScribe - Find the pencast you want to embed.

  3. Right-click to view source code, search for "flashXML?xml="

    Note: Right-clicking to view source code in IE7 doesn't always work but it always works when using Mozilla FireFox. 

    Another reason to ask LiveScribe to share embed code eh?!

  4. Copy the long string after this.  Something like this: "0000C0A80115000009C5B6020000011A24F1741D0399FEB7"

  5. Replace this string in your text editor in both places.
