I've had a response from Slideshare/LinkedIn support for this issue - spotted the thread when looking for alternate solutions. Thank you for your email and I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We're always looking for ways to improve the SlideShare experience for our members. This sometimes means removing features that aren’t ...

Update Given your new specific question, there is no possibility from Flickr itself. I don't know the reason, but unless somebody finds a backdoor for that, you won't be able to do that. You could of course (as a workaround) program an application that uses the Flickr API to fetch an image from an URL and upload it to Flickr. Wouldn't be that hard to do. ...

The Upload button is right next to the Create button. It looks like a hard disk drive with an up arrow coming out of it.

For the updated YouTube interface, you just need to hover over the Channel Owner's name just below the video and a popup overlay shows up showing all subscribers and amount of videos uploaded. Some YouTube users keep their videos private, which can only be accessed when you subscribe to them. In such a case, getting the number of videos uploaded is a bit ...

Update youtube-upload now uses Youtube APIv3 and OAuth2, whereas GoogleCL is broken due to OAuth1 turndown. https://github.com/vinitkumar/googlecl is a fork of GoogleCL, which claims to have been ported to OAuth2 (it is not available via PyPI though). Original Answer Use GoogleCL, the universal Google command line client. It's implemented in Python and ...

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

The great thing about Dropbox is that anything in the Dropbox folder is always up to date on your computer, even if you have multiple computers, or are working with multiple people. They do require that everything be in one folder (on Windows 7 it's C:\Users\me\Dropbox\, on OSX its /Users/me/Dropbox/, etc.) but one thing you can do is just use softlinks on ...

It looks like this used to be possible -- I can find references to doing file uploads to google docs from a few years ago, but I see no way to do it now: Upload Google Docs via email I checked my Google Docs account, searched the help, and I see no reference to this or anyone else talking about doing it on today's Google Docs.

actually it's enough to uncheck "convert to google document" and upload it in the original format without conversion. Changing the filename did not work for me when I renamed to ".jpg" and then renamed the uploaded document back. I could upload and rename, but the filetype was still identified as "jpeg" and on download the file extension was reset to "jpg" ...

I will assume your resume/CV is in LaTeX or TeX, since you already asked there. I used this method with my LaTeX resume the last time I was looking for work: Don't use fancy columns or layouts. PDF parsers seem to work from left to right, line by line, so text from columns get mixed together. Keep the text as one flow. Make it simple. Use a pdf to text ...

This is likely because the Dropbox client uploads files in 4 MB chunks. https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/api : "A typical chunk is 4 MB."

GitHub's web interface will not show the File Upload button until you've made your first commit. When working with Git, every repository needs to be initialized with a starting set of files to work from, typically, in the form of a README file. Strangely, GitHub does not allow you to make this first commit by uploading files from the web interface. There ...

yimg.com is Yahoo's CDN service – it hosts any kind of static files that are part of their website, such as images, stylesheets, webfonts, or user uploads. Different subdomains have different purposes, but in general it's used for data storage. In this case, https://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/ hosts files uploaded by Yahoo Groups users. (These used to act as ...

Use this straightforward tutorial on accessing the standard Youtube Cloud API, takes 10 mins to setup and gets the job done: http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/02/09/how-to-upload-youtube-videos-with-the-command-line-in-linux/ Google happens to have its own upload_video.py script, and I could make it work with some, or rather a lot of, efforts mainly ...

There's a Select hyperlink up at the top which will bring up a dialog box, which will allow you to upload in batch. That way you can download all of the files onto your desktop from the other site, and then batch upload them to minus. Hazarding a bit of a guess, I think what you are suggesting would be tricky due to measures against cross site scripting ...

When you open any video it will display the owner's name and the total amount of videos they have to the right, like below: If this doesn't work for you, use the answer by Geniusknight.

I've written a service that allows users to upload attachments to Google Docs via email. It's available at http://sendtogdocs.com

Make sure you're logged into both Gmail and Google Docs, then: Click on an email that has an attachment Click the "View" link This brings up the Docs view interface Click the "Save in Google Docs" button at the top right NOTE: This does not work for simple graphic files like JPEG, PNG, etc. They will just open in a new browser window. It does work with ...

I had this problem, and it turned out to be the USB headset I was using on my Mac. It would get further and further out of sync (audio was delayed) as the call progressed, until about 30 minutes in when my voice would be garbled for a little while and it would then get back in sync, and then repeat. I had another USB audio device so I switched to that, ...

I was told by a guy who works in the unemployment office: You should always, always keep and upload a formatted plain text version. What happens behind the scenes is that PDFs and Word docs get parsed and mangled when the servers look for keywords in your résumé. Trust me; he's right.

[EDIT] As commenter @Husky mentions, GData is no longer available. Original answer left below for archival purposes. You can also access it via the API, just point your browser to the following URL (after replacing TheChannel by your channel name), and read the value for totalItems: https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/TheChannel/uploads?v=2&alt=jsonc&...

Note that now that there is Google Drive, you can just drag-and-drop the folder from your file browser into the Google Drive webpage to import the whole folder (and keeping the file directory structure intact at the same time).

I think you need to create a Release in order to upload a JAR file, as per this blog post. Or you need the Maven-GitHub-Plugin.

Yes, it's normal. Google Photos and Picasaweb (and presumably Google+ Photos) all simply use the same data store. I can't imagine that they would have wanted to copy all those petabytes of images from one place to another; better to just create a new app to point to the old data.

Google drive doesn't currently support delta updates. Dropbox does.

As of 2017 or so, none of the public methods (i.e., methods that don't require an API token) on this page are working. Here's a method that does work as of lately (mid-2018): Change the UC prefix of the channel ID to UU and use it to access its playlist page. Note that you will change the URL pattern from …/channel/UC… to …/playlist?list=UU… when you use ...

You can use YouTube data API. This tool is aimed for developers but it is easy enough to use. Here is a screenshot where I counted the videos from the channel "Cours de japonais !". I've put a black border around the relevant information which can be found at the bottom of the page after the query has been ran. There are three important information to ...

You can probably use a tool like this to get that kind of stats for a channel/user/playlist. http://youtube-playlist-analyzer.appspot.com/
