SharePoint and video

  Asked By: Mohammad    Date: Apr 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1642

Is anyone using SharePoint to store video? Do you store it in the SQL db or use
a pointer to anther storage medium? Any pointers to how to handle large amounts
of data in SharePoint?

How large  is large? I worked on a project last year where we let users
upload video  to a central library and then individual sites could have a
"pointer list" which would perform a cross-site lookup to specify which
clips would play in a custom web part hosted on each individual site. Last
I checked, their biggest files were around 50MB.

I haven't done this with video, but it should work. Take a look at the content
type called "Link to Document". If you add that content type to a document
library you can store  the video  on a separate IIS web site and then create a URL
link to it in the document library that looks just like a document stored in
SharePoint itself.

There are also some add-on products like the Podcasting Kit for
SharePoint (http://www.codeplex.com/pks/) and the Interactive Media
spx) you might want to look at. They are both based on MOSS 2007 but do
things to store  the media content outside the database.

I use sharepoint  to store  smaller videos and I also stream them. You
cal also store them externally and link them for the larger videos.

How large  of videos are you talking about? Is it just to store them?
