Embed Video on a SharePoint Page

In an effort to provide additional training resources for our staff we have begun creating short videos demonstrating how to use a particular software application. Our company uses SharePoint as our Intranet. We wanted the ability to embed these videos directly into a webpart on a page within SharePoint. This page also contains webparts for links to corresponding documents and a survey.

To embed the videos I performed the following steps:

  • Create a Webpart page with a general layout.
  • Add a Content Editor Webpart.
  • Select Source Editor in the Content Editor
  • Input the following script in the Source Editor:

p align=”center”>

OBJECT id=playera height=575 width=650
CLASSID=”clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6″
ID=”WMP”>

PARAM NAME=”URL” VALUE=”mms://192.168.0.92/outlook2007.wmv“>

PARAM NAME=”AutoStart” VALUE=”false”>
/OBJECT>

  • In my example above you will need to add a <>
  • Change the “URL” VALUE= to point to your own video. Ours points to a media streaming server on our network.

    Hi,
    it says PARAM NAME=”AutoStart” VALUE=”false” but it still autostarts the video when the page loads? How do I stop it from doing that?
    Thanks so much for the help and the great script!

    Karen
