Add Custom Fonts to SharePoint Site

Your company brand uses a particular paid font(s) for all communications and wants the SharePoint branded intranet use those fonts as well.  To do this, you need to create a font-face declaration…

  1. Upload font files to your SharePoint Site Style Library (create a new folder named “font” if needed).
  2. Open the css file that comes with  your font files (created by the font-face generator).
  3. Rearrange the order of the font declaration so it will work in Chrome to the following order:
    .eot
    .svg
    .eot embedded-opentype
    .woff2
    .woff
    .ttf
  4. Copy the font declaration into the top of your main stylesheet and adjust the url path so it points to the fonts you’ve just added.

SharePoint 2013 Videos

If you create an Asset Library to store videos, the video format must be in wmv or mp4 format to work in SharePoint 2013.

Problems:

  • The default threshold for files is 250MB.  (you can change this within the web application, but performance may suffer with a large number of files)
  • Android phones prompt for Silverlight installation to view the video.
  • iPhones prompt for Silverlight installation to view the video.

Solution:

Use YouTube.

  • High quality videos
  • HTML 5 makes viewing possible from any device or OS.
  • Embed YouTube video using CEWP < Ribbon “Insert” < Video and Audio < Embed < enter the iFrame embed code from YouTube.
  • Can also Embed  in SitePage by choosing “Insert” < Embed Code
