Video Training Integration

  Asked By: Traci    Date: Apr 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1567

My company has several training videos for different pieces of proprietary software - we are looking to distribute these over a sharepoint server, where the user can easily move around through a series of videos. The two ways I have seen to do this is to upload the videos and let them click through them one at a time downloading them to their computer and watching them that way. I've also been able to embed the videos into a site so that they would go to a new site for each video. I'd prefer this method, but is there a better one? Or a more streamlined way of doing this? As of right now, I have to upload each video, find the link for it, and make a new page to embed the video. I could add a previous and next button to the bottom of the page, but is there a better way?

Video podcast! The free Podcasting Kit for sharepoint  on CodePlex is pretty robust and has some very nice features - http://www.codeplex.com/pks.

The Podcasting Kit is a bit of a bear to get set up, so you'll a SharePoint administrator to help you out (unless you're lucky enough to be one).

If you want a lighter-weight solution, I suggest you convert your videos  to flash using a tool like this one http://www.zealotsoft.net/dvd-to-flv-converter.htm and upload  the videos to a document library. You can then build a web part that displays the videos in the browser using the Flowplayer video  player http://flowplayer.org/ which you can embed  in your web part.

Both require some technical knowledge, but these approaches have worked well for our customers.
