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 ...

I used auto=1 to get the video play as soon as the page loads. Also, if you are using the Sharepoint out of the box video type, you should be able to edit the embed configurations for the video and generate the code that way. See the "Start Automatically" checkbox in option 4: http://spdevlab.com/2013/06/20/embedding-video-apps-and-leveraging-...

This are called as Blocked File Types For this you can follow following steps : Open Central Administration Click Security tab In General Security click Define blocked file types On the Blocked File Types page, if you ...

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.

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 ...

Yes. SharePoint 2013 has a built-in HTML5 media player that is used to play all video files that are compatible with the HTML5 implementation for the current browser. This means you can now play videos on mobile devices such as iOS that don’t support Silverlight. If the format is not playable by the HTML5 player, then we use Silverlight. The video is ...

Just create a YouTube channel and create a video playlist, this will make sure that the next clip in the playlist loads when the first one finish. Copy and embed the link to the first clip in SharePoint.

No. You'd have to use an attachment as a List item, otherwise you'd have to set up an asset library and use that asset attachment in a hyperlink column. Alternatively, you could do some development that would customize a form that users can fill out that would upload a video to an asset library and also post it to a List item using the new hyperlink of the ...

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.

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 Strict//...

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"> ...

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 ...

You can, if you edit the refinements web part Xslt. You can start the exploration here: http://www.sharepointanalysthq.com/2010/06/sharepoint-2010-search-refinement-panel-options/ or http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee819920.aspx. You need to add something like <CustomFilter CustomValue="Video"> <OriginalValue>wmv</OriginalValue&...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

No, O365 Video is not targeted at a YouTube type scenario and thus anonymous or "external" access is not allowed. EDIT: Vote on Uservoice if you want this: https://office365video.uservoice.com/forums/273864-o365-video-feedback/suggestions/7644834-allow-external-sharing

It is not possible out of the box with SharePoint web part.But you could think of some customization.

as per my knowledge In HTML5, there are 3 supported video formats: MP4, WebM, and Ogg. WebM and Ogg are two much newer file types related to HTML5 video, I have tested only for MP4. Please see below link for more details, • http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp • http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/html5-videos-things-you-need-to-know/

I've contacted Microsoft's support and they said it is not possible to force a media web part to use the HTML5 version. Instead of inserting the videos directly on that page, I created thumbnail links to videos on the Videos section of Office 365. So on SharePoint, there would be little pictures of each video, and clicking on a picture would open a new tab ...

I'm using Sharepoint 2013 and had a similar issue, no thumbnail was displayed. I found that there was a .png file missing. Try editing the properties and make a new thumbnail (see final picture below). Otherwise, read this whole post to troubleshoot the issue. To troubleshoot this, open the Video Library using Windows Explorer. If I show you pictures it'...

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/

"As most of you know , SP2013 Newsfeed provides a cool feature wherin you get a Video thumbnail and an embedded player for links that you post from youtube. In most of the cases it works, but in some cases wherein you use a proxy server, this functionality doesn’t work. I tried to look at documentation on technet, but as usual nothing.
