So okay, I don't know much about how Google goggles sites, but doesn't Flash already publish metadata along with each swf in its natively produced html? Isn't that why all the text I use in the swf appears in comments before the OBJECT call? Example: <!--url's used in the movie: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/videoblogging --> <!--text used in the movie: vidblog tutorial discussion metadata Lucas The Dane--> <object classid=blahblahblah... Just echoing Deirdre in curiosity how Flash is more a black box than Quick, Real, or WMV. Do those formats have some sort of Google- readable data that Flash doesn't provide? Pax out, The Dane
