Working with video content in SharePoint 2013




October 2, 2012 —  (Page 1 of 2)
In the SharePoint 2013 Preview and in the Office 365 Preview, there are some great hidden gems when it comes to working with video content. In this article, you will learn about adding and managing video content, and several ways to display that content on pages in SharePoint.

Where do I put my videos in SharePoint?
The first step is to create an asset library. From there, videos can be uploaded to the library just as you would add documents to a document library. Some interesting things happen behind the scenes each time a video is uploaded. Each video gets its own special page that displays more information about the video, as well as associated content. This screenshot shows a video called “Content Search” that has been uploaded, and the properties of it are displayed on the page as well.

How do I manage the properties of the video page?
After a video has been uploaded, click on the name of the video in the library, and then go to the Manage tab. Here are the important things to notice:
Edit Properties – The coolest thing on this screen (to me) is the ability to capture a video thumbnail right out of the video. The owner field defaults to the name of the person who uploaded the video, but it can be changed. There are also some checkboxes to indicate whether you want users to have the option of downloading your video or grabbing the embed code for it. You can also select the names of the people who are shown in the video.
Permissions – Decide whom you want to share this video with, if it needs to be different than the permissions for the library itself.
Manage Video Renditions – This setting is great because it allows accommodation for end users who may be on slower network connections. Different versions of the video with different bitrates may be uploaded here. When watching the video, end users will see a graph-like icon on the video that will let them switch between renditions.
