    Play video files

      Hi I am planning to do some screen recordings for training purposes. A user will see a list of training videos in the app, I want a user to be able to click on a link/button in the app an view the video. The video file format at the moment is WMV but can be any other format.

      1. Where should I store the video file. In the database or can they be uploaded in shared components somewhere or on a server.

      2. How do I play the video when the user clicks the link or button?

      Regards

          Hello Ash,

          1. Where should I store the video file. In the database or can they be uploaded in shared components somewhere or on a server.
          Best thing is to store it in your Web-server, unless you are aware of of Oracle Multimedia Features....

          Or maybe you you can upload them on Youtube with private Links

          2. How do I play the video when the user clicks the link or button?
