more thoghts on internert railfanning

The question about Internet pictures and video, has to do with naming files. My file naming protocol has evolved over my years of digital photography. Add to that, the thousands of slides scanned into digital format. How do I label pictures or video taken from the internet so that I can give credit where credit is due. My current protocol involve motive power and involves railroad name+lead engine number+train number(if known)+location+date. All videos and pictures are of one consist. This means that for my files off the internet video might need to be edited.

For a while I thought about adding videos to my file, by inbedding the YouTube video into a html page. I do that with this blog, embed the video that I have downloaded to YouTube. Another idea is to do a inline frame, using the html editor function, or a hypertext link to the site. Again the problem will be labeling and organizing them and finally viewing them.
