ABCnews.com New Feature

February 13, 2007 2:31 PM

Here’s a cool feature I just spotted on ABCnews.com. Go to ABCnews.com and click on any piece of video. The ABC player will then pop up. When the video starts playing, you’ll see two links underneath the video—to email the video or “get video URL.”

I’ve never seen the “get video URL” link before so I clicked on it. A small white window then displays the message, “This URL has been copied to your clipboard.” So if you simply hit the “paste” function on your computer, it copies that URL into an email or a word document, for instance. It’s a cool new feature that’s one step easier than highlighting the URL in the browser window and then copying and pasting. Try it and see.
