Other video formats

Postby mizkat1958 » Fri Nov 11, 2011 1:36 pm

Is there a way to use other media formats, such as wmv, in SB? Perhaps using the IFrame or another widget?

I would recommend converting your video to FLV and using the Video object. You can use an IFrame to display a WMV, but you'd have to assume that the browser the learner is using is able to understand and display the movie directly in the browser. Many users will have this, and it won't be a problem, but some users may run into problems and their browser will attempt to save the file instead of just showing it. So it's a little riskier. If you wanted to code an HTML embed file and point to that in the IFrame, which points to the WMV, that would be possible.
