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
