Archive.orgTV Documentation

The MechanizedLife Archive.org TV allows you to view any video content from Archive.org within SL, with minimal set up.

Because the MechLife Archive.org TV is fully automated, it is not necessary to make any manual changes to your parcel’s media url settings. The TV does it for you!

Getting Started

  1. Rez and open your gadget crate and copy the items into your inventory.
  2. Rez the TV. If you are not the sole land owner, you will be prompted to deed the TV to the group that owns the parcel. NOTE: This object is no copy/transferrable. If you are unable to deed the item to the group that owns the parcel (you may wish to rez the TV on a friend’s land, for example). You may transfer the TV to them for rezzing…Just be sure to get it back!
  3. Click on the TV and follow the onscreen instructions for searching and playing movies and other video content from Archive.org.
