Windows Live Spaces team blog announced the release of the latest version of Windows Live Spaces. In addition to a number of back-end updates, the main updgrade is that people were asking for: Embeded Videos.
We’ve built more rich media capabilities into Windows Live Spaces so it’s easier for you to display your favorite videos on Spaces. You can now embed videos directly into your Spaces blog entries. Adding a visual element to your blogs can help you tell your story.
If you prefer to display your videos in independent modules, you can now easily add the Soapbox gadget and a Universal Video Player gadget directly from within the Customize menu in Spaces. The Universal Video Player allows you to display videos that are hosted anywhere on the Internet. It’s easy to find, it’s easy to add and it’s super easy to play your favorite videos on your Space.
It’s now even easier to find out who updated what on their Space and when…and you can be one of the first to find out! You can now sign-up to receive updates in real time for blogs, photos, lists and comments in your favorite Spaces. Simply click on the “Sign up for alerts” link in the Visitor tools module of your favorite Spaces and start receiving your updates right away. We want you to try it out and tell us what you think of alert, so we’ve limited this new functionality to English Spaces first.
