    Hello,

    I haven't seen much documentation on the RadMediaControl and using video libraries.  Is documentation available?

    Thanks.

    Hi Eric,

    Here is a link to the available documentation about RadMedia player that we use:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radmediaplayer-overview.html

    Here are some links from where you can gather more information abut setting up the Video providers.

    It'd be great if there were an example of how to integrate with YouTube as a video provider. Any chance?

    Hello Jeff,

    Currently the implementation of the providers is based on Amazon S3 and Viddler. We will consider an example that explains how to integrate the Video control with YouTube videos. You could also find the following post useful - How to Implement a YouTube Video List into Sitefinity

    Hi Ivan

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I have now discovered that although the example shows a playlist in a Sitefinity page it doesn't play in that page, but opens the YouTube video page. I presume that your Viddler example http://www.sitefinity.com/support/kb/sitefinity-3-x/how-to-set-up-viddler.aspx allows videos and playlists to be embedded in Sitefinity, but requires some work your end to be able to make it work for YouTube rather than me just 'translating' the code for YouTube?

    Regards

    Jeff

    Hello Jeff,

    In this case you should create a custom provider that can get information form YouTube. To use viddler as file storage and streaming we have a custom provider(Telerik.Libraries.MediaProvider.ViddlerProvider).

    we have a client who will wants to display training videos in their secure website through Sitefinity. The video files (.swf, .mov, .wmv, flv) could be 360MB or more and may be in High Def.    Now, while they may be large files, they will not be hit by many people at once…  maybe 2 or 3 users at most at one time.  

     

    In this case, do we/should we use Viddler to host and/or deliver the videos?  What are the advantages / disadvantages to using Sitefinity versus Viddler?   Consequently, when I try to choose the .mov file from the files folder using Rad Editor, it doesn't show up in the list....

    Any input you have on this would be helpful.

    Thank you,

    Hi Laura,

    One advantage of using Viddler is they can encode the video for you, so it will be of higher quality. The videos are also stored on Viddler, as opposed to your own database, so you'll save space on your website. Viddler also has commenting, embedding and other really cool features out of the box. These features, for the most part, can be enabled with Sitefinity. They will, however, require some coding and configuration. The User Manual has an article on Viddler under Customizing the Images and Documents Module (Page 208)

    Another Viddler advantage is thay many people go on the site, so the video will get lots of exposure as opposed to just being on your website. Viddler also shows you related videos, both from you and from other users, so there is more diverse content using them.

    -John
