How to play flash video in SharePoint?
Posted by zieglers on July 28, 2010
Each player has their own way of embedding, in this example I will use JW player. They have a neat tool on their site that you can use to generate the code needed to embed your video.
The player does require several files to be hosted and made readable by the user who will have access to the videos. You can create a dedicated document library and upload the appropriate files included in the FLV players package and then use the absolute URL in your embed code to reference them.
NOTE: Be sure that the users who will be watching the video have read access on the document library the FLV player files are stored in.
You then create a content editor web part in which you want the video to appear in and place the embedding code in the source editor.
DEMO: Hosting flash video in MySites
- player.swf (Flash player wrapping the video)
- preview.jpg (Preview image. Once you click on it, video will start playing)
var so = new SWFObject(‘Media/Player/player.swf’,'ply’,’550′,’403′,’9′,’#000000′);
