Video Portal - Embedded Video coding

Unanswered Question

I am running dmm and vp 5.0.2

with the upgrade to 5.0 I found that there is a new feature that allows you to copy and paste a script from the video part into a website. This provides an embedded windows media or flash player on the page, alot of my clients are very eager to deliver their content using this method instead of sending everyone directly to the video portal.

One of the major limitations that my clients have a problem with is the fact when the windows media player is displayed on the website there is no preview image. Essentially when the users browse to the page with the embedded link there is a windows media player with a blank screen.

I am assuming that this functionality is not built into the video part creation but I was wondering if someone could share a link or personal knowledge on how I could display a preview image in place of the blank screen.

Here is an example of the existing script from one of my video parts.

<script src="http://hostname/vpinstance/dms/video_portal/scripts/DmsEmbedLib.js"></script>

<script src="http://hostname/vpinstance/dms/video_portal/jsData/videos/ECE29847ABB64D97877CF819ACFFBC8B_video.js"></script>

<script>

document.write(dmsEmbed.getSimplePlayer());

dmsEmbed.clear();

</script>

Any assistance would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I have this problem too.

Embedded Video the necessary HTML code to embed and display the live or on-demand video inside a custom website without the Video Portal interface. Embedded video requires an active Video Portal because the code checks the encoded video type and opens the correct supporting decoder software before displaying the video and basic playback controls to viewers.

Because the code provides direct access to the video, do not assign access restrictions in the Video Portal. We recommend that you manage access by implementing security measures on the website or through the application that publishes the code.
