Requirement: To play a .MOV video file in SharePoint site.
Solution: Used the JWPlayer in SharePoint. Here are the detailed steps.
Download the JWPlayer files from http://www.longtailvideo.com/jw/upload/mediaplayer-viral.zip
Extract and open the jwplayer.js file, Search for /jwplayer/player.swf and then replace this with the location where you are going to upload the files.
E.g. change it to:
Create a Document Library and upload the files along with your video file and modified preview.png.
Create a HTM file with the name of “Jwplayer.htm”, paste the below code in it, change the File locations accordingly, and then upload it to the document library you created earlier.
Step 5: Now add a content editor web part, Edit the CEWP and point it to the HTM file created. Or Place this code:
<iframe name="Iframe" src="https://SharePoint.com/sites/Marketing/brandcenter/Player/Jwplayer.htm" scrolling="no" FRAMEBORDER="0" style="width:100%; border:0; height:100%; overflow:hidden;"> </iframe>
See it in action!
Look at this post for web based players: http://www.instantshift.com/2010/05/14/21-free-video-players-for-your-website-and-blogs/
we can use the EMBED tag as well!
<div> <embed src="https:/SharePoint.com/marketing/brandcenter/player/bp.mov" autoplay="true" loop="true" width="400" height="200"> </embed> </div>
The Problem here is: you must have a browser plug-in installed to play the video ( Such as Quick time) also it will prompt for username/password when using Secured sites.
