Most SharePoint sites I see are made by geeks, for geeks, with no sense of style. Is there a way to spiff up a site without having to go the SharePoint Designer route? Sure there is: include images, slideshows and embedded video using simple web parts and picture libraries.

A single large image on the top of the entrance page can make your site visually appealing without having to spend an inordinate amount of time on graphic design. Use the Image Web Part to insert a banner image across the top of the site.

A selected slideshow of interesting images is as easy as pointing to a Picture Library using the This Week in Pictures web part. A nice touch for a software project is to have a linkable slideshow of screenshots on the entrance page of the project site.

Finally, there is too much content on YouTube not to find something of interest. Go to YouTube, type in the term SharePoint, select the embed code and insert it into a Content Editor Web Part.
 
Standalone images, dynamically generated slideshows and embedded videos will help your End User coming back for more. By the way, don’t forget the content. You can still put your geek hat on.

I hope you don't mind me posting this but I have a media player web part. Upload your video to a documents library and link the video to the media player webpart.

Embed a Video into a SharePoint Page

This is great but has anybody worked out how to embed youtube videos in a standard sharepoint blog post?

If you copy and paste an "embed" link from youtube into a standard post this obvioulsy encodes the html tags and displays the HTML tags as text when viewing the post.

If I use the insert HTML code window and paste the HTML tags in these appear to be stripped out when I save the post and nothing is rendered (it is displayed whilst still editing the post but vanished later after I saved it).

Any help would be appreciated.

Posted 25-Nov-2007 by Hugh Forsyth
Mark Miller

Embed a Video into a SharePoint Page

Hugh - You are correct, the object tag gets stripped from the HTML.

Did you realize the blog post itself is just another page you can add a web part to? Use the Content Editor Web Part and you can embed the video on the post page, just not directly into the post itself.

Hope that is useful.

I use camtasia to create "how to" wmv videos on our IT sharepoint site and upload to doc libraries. However, I would like to be able to create interactive videos using flash, but have been unsuccessful in uploading this file type. Does this take a special web part? We are running 2007.

This was very helpful, I really enjoy this, but since I have enabled this on a site, everytime I navigate to the site a pop up box comes up and states this page has both secure & non secure contains. Now I am using Https on my SharePoint Server. My question is is there anyway to keep this box from popping up?

Embed a Video into a SharePoint Page

We are in the process of announcing SharePoint to the rest of the company and I created a flash video that is in a sharepoint video library on my training site. Some times, you have to place things out in the open so people watch them and that's what I want to do with this video, embed it on my training site home page. The problem is, when I copy the code to the source editor, I only see the code, not the video. Is this possible?

Do a Google search on LyteBox and I think you'll like what you see.

I took a screenshot of each video and resized them to match. I then placed them inside an HTML table in a content editor web part. Each image is then wrapped in a link reference in HTML.

If you have Dreamweaver or some other HTML editing software, you can do it in a couple of minutes.

Embed a Video into a SharePoint Page

Hi Mark

Thanks for the reply. So that's how you did it! I understand the principle,

Is the table made up on one row and multiple columns?
Is each thumbnail is in an individual cell?
What makes the thumbnails move when you move your mouse over them?

I have SharePoint Designer - thought i am a novice at using it. I have tried to add a table, but the results obscured the front page on the Sharepoint site ie with a blue background! Not what was wanted!

Could you let me have the code you used?

Many thanks for your help!

Maria - The web part you are looking for is in MOSS. You are probably running a WSS implementation.

Try using a content editor web part to display images. You can place basic HTML in it, making a call to an image and it will display that way.

The Long Tail Video embed is pretty amazing. I've been tracking the progress for the past year and must say it's pretty slick.

More than the display, however, is how the content is served. For a couple of small, screencast videos it's fine to sever them from a basic web server. When the lifting gets heavy, though, you'll need a hosted streaming media environment... whole different story.

Jenny,

You'll need some kind of HTML wrapper to embed the video. A lot of people are using the JW Player: http://www.longtailvideo.com/.

A word of warning, however. Unless you are in a controlled environment, mp4 is going to knockout a lot of your audience because they will not have the ability to play it.

You're right. Because the blog page is a template, adding a video to a webzone will make that video display on every page of the blog. You can't embed video into a blog post, either, because any object code gets stripped out.

make it so users can watch but not download

Hi Mark,
 
Thanks for sharing the great code. Do you know of a way where we could have users be able to watch the video but not be able to go the doc library and save the video file on their computer?
 
They can find the source of the video by right clicking on the player and selecting Properties where it shows the source. As far as I know in order to see the video they must at least have read access to the file which will allow them to download it.
 
Thanks,
Robert
