Embedded Google Drive Files

In response to: 

Jeff,? at 15:15 you said something about not being able to publish Google Docs on the web and embed them to other websites? If you open a Google Doc and go under File, you have an option called "Publish to web". After you publish your document you are given the option to embed it to other websites. Is this what you were referring to?

Benjamin, I was referring to the ability to upload and html file or an mp3 file and then post it elsewhere on a blog.

Dropbox lets you do this by uploading to the public folder and copying the public link. ? Haven't found a way to do that with Google Drive yet.


re: embedding audio

I see what you mean now even though I was not able to see your examples.  Seems that the next logical step for Google would be to link Google files from Google Drive (regardless of type) from within Blogger posts since it's all part of the same "ecosystem". I hope this comes to pass. -Benjamin
