Ahh, now I see what you're doing. While your approach will work, I tend to prefer the "use a supported method for everyone" approach. The issue with doing this client side is that even if you remove the Silverlight container with Javascript, the browser is still initially going to try and load it. This is one of my gripes with the SharePoint team; while I ...

Because you are uploading a file to an Asset Library, right after clicking "upload" you are shown the edit form, in order to fill some metadata that the library requires. Now, the ItemAdded event (which is *asynchronous *) is probably too early to try to change any of the file properties. I tried your code inside the ItemUpdated event and it worked ...

SharePoint 2007/WSS3 does not come with the ability to stream videos. In fact, it is particularly horrible at it even with BLOB caching enabled. I would STRONGLY recommend hosting your videos elsewhere, like youtube, and then putting the EMBED code into your pages using the Content Editor Web Part. However, if that is not an option and you must keep the ...

If you have your video hosted on some videosite (youtube, vimeo) you can just use the embed-code in a Content Editor Webpart. Pro smaller content DB works on (almost) every browser faster (i'm not sure, it is just a feeling I have, using videos in SharePoint) Con Video is not easy replaceable/editable Video is (semi)public Internet-connection needed. ...

You should be able to resolve this by setting a higher CSS z-index on your drop down nav elements. Note that for better cross-browser compatibility, you should also assign a lower z-index to the QuickTime player itself. In some scenarios, z-index must be assigned on both elements to ensure they are layered consistently as expected.

This link gives simple instructions in how to embed video in a SharePoint page: http://msfarmer.blogspot.in/2009/05/embedding-video-on-your-sharepoint-site_13.html So the major heavy lifting will be done by the <embed> tag: <embed src="http://link to video here" autoplay="true" loop="false" width="200" height="200"> ...

The requirements are of course to update your master page to support HTML 5 (obviously you'll have to use any modern browser to get the benefits of it). The limitations most important are due to the META tag and DOCTYPE (http://klines.org/sharepoint/sharepoint-2010-html5-and-ie9-compatibility-issues/) <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 ...

The list of supported media formats for Silverlight player in SharePoint: Windows Media Video (WMV) Windows Media Audio(WMA) MP3 MP4 For more details see Supported Media Formats, Protocols, and Log Fields

Media Web Part is a Silverlight control. So, all the formats supported by Silverlight can be played using MWP. Look at this article for details on that: Supported Media Formats, Protocols, and Log Fields.

In Central Administration, go to Manage Web Applications and select the web app you're working with and then General Settings from the ribbon. In the Browser File Handling option choose Permissive. Specifies whether additional security headers are added to documents served to web browsers. These headers specify that a browser should show a download ...

You can. You'd want to create a document library with no default content type specified and then create and add your content types to the library by setting the Manage Content Types option to Yes in the Advanced Settings of the library. Then you'd just need to figure out how you would group things together in your library so that the docx and mp4 file ...

Are you sure you are not re-firing your own event? You can disable event firing on update like this: EventFiringEnabled = false; // file.Update(); EventFiringEnabled = true; This link is for 2010, but it should still be valid for 2013: http://adrianhenke.wordpress.com/2010/01/29/disable-item-events-firing-during-item-update/

Always check your filesize when uploading large files. The default maximum upload size is 250MB, but can be changed in central administration (-> application management -> [your webapp] -> general settings -> maximum upload size) For a powershell cmd: http://sharepointrelated.com/2012/07/30/maximum-file-size-per-extension-in-sharepoint-2013/

In addition to embedding YouTube video using ContentEditorWebPart web part, I recommend to take a look on different approaches as described below. Store embedded video properties in Custom List The main idea is to store embedded video properties and not the embedded code itself. For storage Custom List named Video Links is used. Custom List is based on ...

The Asset Library is supported by SharePoint 2013 Foundation. I'm presuming you have sufficient permission to add an app, but that you don't see the Asset Library App?! Unfortunately, the Video and Rich Media feature is not part of Sharepoint 2013 Foundation, so you need to use Server version to add videos and rich content.

I worked on a project embedding JWplayer and Flowplayer into SP2010 and we had some great success with it (it became a product, http://www.ramp.com/solutions/enterprise/, I am not a sales weasal or getting comission ;). We haven't had anything break SP yet, but I don't know how custom the CSS was for our player. I handled the SP side, and another developer ...

I think your talking about embedding videos? If you type in a link to a youtube or video you have stored on your SharePoint site you get a very cool preview automatically generated for you: http://www.sharepointanalysthq.com/2012/07/social-in-sharepoint-2013-newsfeed-posting-and-replying/ follow these steps: You can embed videos from YouTube ...

I would advise against storing such large video files in SharePoint. Large files are not well supported at the moment. Definitely make sure versions are not enabled otherwise you'll be out of disk space very quickly. SharePoint 2013 with Shredded Storage should help this in the future. One of the main issues with large files is the HTTP timeout. This is ...

Figured it out. Basically I followed this blog post and ended up with this code: try{ //set the html-tag var objID = "ctl00_MSO_ContentDiv" //replace [youtube]url[/youtube] tags with corresponding HTML object if (document.getElementById(objID).innerHTML.indexOf("[youtube]") > -1) { //find all [youtube][/youtube] tags var arr = ...

We've build a solution where we use Flowplayer (www.flowplayer.org) because we have firefox, chrome, safari but also mobile/iPad visitors. This syntax works for us on all players: <video controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay" width="640" height="360"> <source src="https://www.yoursite.com/big_buck_bunny.mp4" type="video/mp4" /> <object ...

In the past, I've used jQuery + oEmbed to handle this exact situation -- find link tags that point to videos and attempt to turn them into embedded videos. With this approach, you would just want users to insert links, not the object stuff. I used jquery-oembed, but I believe there are some other options out there if that doesn't suit your needs. EDIT #1: ...

Ofcourse you also need to change the file types which get crawled. Go to the Search Service Application within Central Administration. In the left navigation section Crawling, click File Types. Add New File Type for wmv and avi. Perform a full crawl. Now the media files should appear within the search results.


1

The quick answer is no. As Sven said, you can use something like JWPlayer to do the video piece, but you'd need to come up with your own way to get a SharePoint list to be the record of authority for the playlist. In the past I've used SPServices to grab the data from the list and build the playlist that way, but there's no "canned" solution to handle it ...

I would go for the JWPlayer. It's quite easy to embed this component into a visual webpart. Here's an example of how to create a playlist with this component. You can generate the XML file from a sharepoint list. http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player-setup-wizard?example=206

Why don't you add a Content editor web part on dispform.aspx and try adding the video play (code) there instead? You can always add a Web Part to the list forms.

It's very easy to set the preview image of the Media Web Part via the PreviewImageSource (see walkthrough here) property. In a solution I developed I let the customer upload a custom prevew image together with the video which would serve as preview image. I think what you are asking to have this process automated, so the preview image is automatically ...

I know there was a 2007 solution called the Podcasting Kit for SharePoint that was available on Codeplex, http://pks.codeplex.com. It looks to be abandoned. I thought I had heard they were going to be coming up with a 2010 solution on the product. That being said, here's a link to a youtube video that has a few snips of information on Microsoft's ...

F4V is going to leverage which ever player you have registered for that extension. I will assume the native flash player. Page Viewer is simply rendering the content in an iframe, and the files are delivered like any other rendered link. In the absence of any errors you can try the following: I would load up Fiddler2, run it against your IIS site on a ...

I had a similar problem to what you're reporting and first assumed that this was a Silverlight problem in its inability to handle GZIP compressed streams. However, what I have determined is that the answer is partially a "yes". Silverlight cannot handle GZIP streams even though it sends an HTTP request indicating that it does in fact support GZIP responses. ...
