Property Lines

View>Property Lines, will provide you with a gateway into the tools that you might need if you were to manage your own land with streaming audio/video as well as providing specific permission options to land parcels. You can see in the picture that I have divided the land into 2 parcels of 16 sq. m. (Right click the land>Edit Terrain>Left click land>Subdivide) These are known, in-world, as a 16th. Into each of these parcels, I can stream different audio/videos feeds. There are tools out there that allow you to stream in more than one video into one parcel but I won't go into that now. The important thing to remember here is that however you choose to divide and use land at ground level, the same rule applies to in any space above the ground within that parcel. If you consider a two storey building, for example. You choose to invite visitors to listen to a podcast on the ground floor, the same podcast will be available to them if they were stood directly above the parcel on the second floor. Careful land management is recommended when, as we are, dealing with towers 9 floors high!

this is a great tip, especially in dividing land to isolate audio before rezzing a building or classrooms onto the land :)
