  • Run scripts
About Land Window, Media Tab
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.
About Land Window, Sound Tab
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 page tells you how to get and use the streaming link from any Shoutcast site. 

The sound window also has check boxes for controlling voice
  • Enable/disable voice on the parcel
  • restrict voice to the parcel or let voice cross to other parcels.
About Land Window, Access Tab
 Places to specify conditions for entering the parcel and listing banned residents.
Parcel: Part (or all) of your land that will have the same settings. You can cut you land into multiple parcels . Parcels can be as small as 4x4 meters. Each parcel can (and should) have a different name and different settings.
Anyone will be able to see most of the settings on most parcels. You will be able to change them only if you own the parcel or are member of the group that owns the parcel and you have a role with the required authority.
