flv video handling and streaming capabilities of a sharepoint site, thoughts and ideas :)

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
Here is the thing.

We are re-designing an already working site but now we are using moss 2007.

In the new site we want an area where are users can see videos of the company. We will use the flv format for our videos. How does moss handle these kind of files? Is it easy to create lists with these kind of files and then using a gridview to lets say make a shocase of the data stored there? I mean the videos, perhaps a thumbnail and some metadata etc. When something is uploaded to a sharepoint list everything is stored in the data base, so if I use a grid view i will pull the data out of the data base?

I am walking blind here, this is more of a general discussion question. I have no idea on how to even start to implement this sort of thing, I am just trying to figure it out and see how I can go about this.

Thank you all in advance, hope my post is clear.

Can we add a video or flash content to sharepoint site

    Is there any possibility to add a video or a flash content  to a sharepoint page. Suppose when a page is loaded, the video or the flash file shoul automatically start to play.

I´m aware that video can be added through content editor webpart, but it does not plays the video file automatically. Only if the play button is pressed, the video starts playing. I want it to be automated. Is there any possible ways?

Thanks in advance..

Video streaming through Sharepoint 2010 MediaWebPart object?



I have used a MediaWebPart object in a SharePoint site to play videos (exist in a Video Library). The MediaWebPart object is placed through this piece of code:

//Get relevant parameters from the Data Form Web Part.
var mediaTitleValue = (document.getElementsByName('TitleFieldValue'))[0].innerText;
var mediaUrlValue = (document.getElementsByName('UrlFieldValue'))[0].innerText;
var previewImageUrlValue = (document.getElementsByName('PreviewImageUrlFieldValue'))[0].innerText;

//Create the media player.
document.getElementById('MediaPlayerHost'), //The <div> tag into which to insert the Silverlight object.
'MediaPlayerHost', // The ID attribute to assign to the "Object" element that will be inserted on the page and used to access the media player later.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.
