  • Adds an HTML5 compliant video element on the page, making it possible to upload multiple source files or to link to DMS assets.
  • The type attribute specifies the MIME type, helping the browser to determine which file to download and if it can decode the file. The MIME type is automatically resolved by the Standard Templating Kit (STK).
  • If the requesting browser does not support the video element, Flash player acts as fallback.
  • Although MP4 is a common format for videos and supported by most browsers, HTML5 specification does not specify which video formats browsers should support. To ensure compatibility across a diverse platforms (mobile, tablet etc.) consider uploading different formats. By default the video component dialog allows:
  • During download first frame of the video is shown.
  • Alternatively, it is possible to upload a poster image for download or until the user hits play.

  • An example how the Safari browser renders a native HTML5 video player on the page:

An HTML code fragment like this is embedded on the page.

<video poster="/dms/videos/Concurrent-editing-poster.png" controls="controls" preload="none">
   <source src="/dms/videos/Concurrent-editing-m4v.m4v" type="video/mp4" />
