- In addition to displaying a video on a standard page, each video uploaded to a SharePoint site will have its own player page that contains metadata about the video.
- Video sets enable you to manage different renditions of each video that could span different resolutions, encoding formats, and slightly modified video content (for example, audio dubbed in different languages).
- SharePoint manages which encoding is played depending on the capability of your browser and device.
- Embedding of video sources external to SharePoint (like YouTube) is also supported.
- You can preview videos directly from a search results page.
- While performing a regular search, SharePoint recognizes if the user’s query indicates an interest in watching videos based on simple keywords such as “speech,” “talk,, or “video,” and surfaces all the relevant videos to the top in the video intent group.
- While performing a video search, you can refine the video listing based on properties such as video length or when the video was uploaded.
- Each video has its own player page with metadata about the video and its owner, and a list of related documents. For example, someone delivering a class lecture can upload the PowerPoint presentation used along with the video recording for users to view. The player page also enables the viewer to switch between the available renditions, rate the video, and download the video.
- Both HTML 5 video and Silverlight players are supported.
