Uploading, managing, and sharing videos in SharePoint is
as simple as Create, Upload, Play
These days, companies need to share more
than just documents. From training materials to commercials,
companies are accumulating rich media like videos quickly. While
SharePoint is pretty good at storing a lot of things, video and
audio files have their own needs. Bamboo Solutions created the Video Library for SharePoint so you can create a centralized location for not only storing videos, but for playing them back and sharing them as well. The Bamboo Video Library provides several advantages over a standard Document Library, such as:
The Bamboo Video Library for SharePoint provides users
with a simple but powerful library that
is designed specifically for storing media.
Authorized users can upload or link to
video and audio files in a variety of
formats and locations, while other users can
view media details (like resolution and
length) and play back the content from
within the library using the embedded
Library lets you centralize and organize
your rich media the way it was
meant to be.
Bamboo Video Library for SharePoint is a graduate of Bamboo Labs and was originally built for internal management of training videos.
Bamboo Solutions created Video Library because we saw an increasing demand for storing media-rich content in SharePoint, which WSS v3.0 and MOSS 2007 Document Libraries did not support. The SharePoint community agreed, with several hundred downloads of the Labs version alone! With the
launch of SharePoint 2010, Microsoft also listened to the community and provided their own support for media-rich content with the Asset Library. Take a look at the table below to see how Bamboo's Video Library stacks up against the SharePoint Asset Library.
Bamboo Video Library for SharePoint is based on the standard SharePoint Library. Like other instances of the SharePoint Library, such as Document Library, Picture Library, or Wiki Page Library, it retains all the standard document management capabilities you need to manage your files, including check in/check out, version control, and content approval.
