I've got an asset library with a bunch of video's in it. The aim is to get the videos playable in the browser. I see two possible ways to do this ootb with SharePoint 2010:
a) create a corresponding publishing page for each video, add a media player web part and connect it to the video. As far as i can determine it appears as though you can't dynamically switch the source of the webpart so you need multiple webparts/pages to
display all the videos, which i find abit messy.
b)use the option built into the asset library where when you hover over a video you get the option to play. This method fits perfectly however when i click play, the video player stretches the video and distorts it (and also makes it run more sluggishly),
and i can't seem to find a way to tell it what size to play the video at. I've used a 'Video' content type and set the 'Frame Height' and 'Frame Width' fields however it doesn't change anything.
So there are 2 questions:
1) Is there any way to control the size of the player launched from the asset library?
2) Is it possible to dynamically change the source of media player webpart? e.g. webpart connection to an asset list or something along these lines?
Thanks in advance
