You can set a media source (usually video) on the land.  You set the web link on this page.  You also specify a particular texture to be used where you want the video to appear.  Normally, you would put this texture on a large flat prim to make a screen.  You can put the texture in multiple places and on prims of odd shapes to produce unusual effects.

You can set an audio stream on the parcel with this tab.  Note that you use a special kind of web link.  An ordinary link to a web page will not work.  Most sources that stream music or audio via the web will list a streaming link on the web page.  The following link tells you how to get and use the streaming link from any Shoutcast site.
