    Hi,
    As i mentioned above we are using site studio to create web content in UCM and content presenter task flow to present it on portal. My web content can have a video associated with it(a enabling insert flash in WYSWYG element of associated region definition). How can i get this video in my content presenter task flow. I am creating custom template for content presenter.

    From my experience i always converted videos to mp4 and showed "streamed" though Flowplayer in content presenter.

    HTML 5 is very good solution :) like SQL*VOX said.

    Hi.

    Sorry but i can't share to you this code/components:

    My solution have next components:
    1) One IBR addon transforming all media to streaming reproducible format.
    2) Support-addon for streaming (if you don't have streaming server).
    3) Flowplayer integrated with WebCenter Portal as Video Player.

    You need to find a Flash or HTML 5 player to show your videos.
    Remember that without streaming server, until videos are fully downloaded are not showed to portal user.

    Interesting links...:
    http://contentoncontentmanagement.com/2008/03/ucmtube-converting-and-streaming-flv-files-with-oracle-ucm/

    I think that the people of WebCenter Content Forum can help you more with it. In WebCenter Portal you only need to integrate a Flash video player or HTML 5 player.

    Regards.

    How do you link to your video file in the Contributor Data File?
    I'm still looking for the best way to integrate video in content presenters and/or Wiki pages.

    Oracle simply suggests going to the HTML source of a wiki page and insert an iframe with Youtube's embed code as the src element, but that seems just too simple.
    It would be nice if there would be a simple way for, say, a content administrator to select a video from the Content Server and have the Content Presenter embed it in the news message.

    Hi.

    We usually have our own Element Definition for videos. It's only a Video Picker and store dDocName of the content file.
    Now, with video dDocName is easy to get video file in a CP Template:

    ${WCAppContext.applicationURL}/content/conn/ucm/uuid/dDocName:${node.propertyMap['dDocName'].value.stringValue // IF Video isn't in a datafile. SELECTING DIRECTLY YOUR VIDEO
    ${WCAppContext.applicationURL}/content/conn/ucm/uuid/dDocName:${node.propertyMap['RDName:video'].value.stringValue // If video is a element definition of a Region Definition

    Create a CP template called video player where you add a Flash Video Player.
    In the source of the Flash Video Player select your preferred EL Expression (direct video or element definition).

    Regards.

    Hi Jaap

    While Creating element definition i am enabling the insert flash check box.
    so in contribution mode i can select video from content server on click of insert flash icon.
    that work with website created by site studio, but when i am using same region template with content presenter
    video is not visible.(rest of text and image are being displayed on portal page).
    i am still struck at this point. :(

    Thanks Daniel i will try ur approach thanks for sharing
