Frequently Asked Question - How do I integrate videos with my existing web-based systems?

How do I integrate videos with my existing web-based systems?

There are two ways to do this:
  1. direct links via proxy server/IP authentication (described in previous FAQ articles), or
  2. embedded video using iframe HTML code (see below).

The preferred method is to first ensure that your IP address and proxy server authentication is working. Once you have that in place, you will be able to copy and paste the links to the videos into your course management system, booking system, or media catalog. Authentication happens behind the scenes for on-campus users, as their IP address is confirmed to be in the list of Authorized IP Addresses. If connecting from off-campus, they should be prompted by your proxy server for a username and password or other credentials.

Place the links into your secure web-based systems. This will automatically pop open new windows on the users’ computers and begin playing the content.
If you wish to embed a Flash video onto a web page, you can use an iframe in your HTML that references the link. The links to the Flash media can be obtained by clicking them from your My Videos page when logged in, and then copying the link from the bottom of the page where it says "permalink." You can also download an Excel spreadsheet of your permalinks from the My Videos page.
Below is a sample HTML snippet of an iframe. The video specific code is available on the Player Page by clicking the "View Permalink and Embedding Information":
Depending on how your proxy server has been configured, you may need to insert a pre-pend or post-pend to the URL so that the user’s computer is instructed to send the request through your proxy server. Example links that go through a proxy server for a media link might look like the following examples:
