Open Anthropology, proof that there are still conscious people alight in U.S. academia (and ones that still bother to quote Gramsci), provides pointers for photo and video source verification:

‘One of the main problems with the Tehran protest videos, and the mainstream media have been quick to point this out repeatedly, is that one does not know for certain on which day a video was taken, and the difference can between the events of one day and the next can be of critical importance. Some Middle Eastern journalists have been quick to analyze protest photographs and found in some cases that pre-election rally photographs were being recycled and used to show evidence of support for Mousavi’s post-election protests.‘ (from Darryl)
