After the implementation of our Web Page service item, there has been some call for an explanation as to how streaming video from various sites can be displayed. 

Most streaming video sites allow users to customize video playback by manipulating the URL used to view that video.

First, I'll list the URL in standard format displayed for that site, then the formatting of the full screen video version and finally an example of a URL formatted correctly to display a full screen video by default.

Youtube:

Normal Format - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={video ID}

Normal Example - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BU5ZKK-_jU

Full Screen Format - http//www.youtube.com/v/{video ID} 

Full Screen Example - http://www.youtube.com/v/6BU5ZKK-_jU

Enable Autoplay Format - http//www.youtube.com/v/{video ID}&autoplay=1

Enable Autoplay Example - http://www.youtube.com/v/6BU5ZKK-_jU&autoplay=1

Vimeo:

Normal Format - http://vimeo.com/{video ID}

Normal Example - http://vimeo.com/38514156

Full Screen Format - http://player.vimeo.com/video/{video ID}

Full Screen Example - http://player.vimeo.com/video/38514156

Installing Flash:

You may experience an issue where you are told you need Flash to play the video, even if you have Flash installed already (especially on Windows). Some browsers, like Google Chrome, include a version of Flash that is only usable from inside of Chrome.

Navigate to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ and select your OS platform. There is only one version for Mac OS X but for Windows select "Other Browsers".

Once Flash is installed you should be able to play Flash content from inside Proclaim.

 

Known Issues:

    • Full screen YouTube videos (using the format http//www.youtube.com/v/[video ID]) do not work on Windows. Full screen Vimeo does work. 
    • If on a Windows machine, you can insert a normal format YouTube video (using the format http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[video ID]) and manually take it to full screen. Note that this will go full screen in your primary monitor (which may not necessarily be the monitor you currently have your slide output set to).

    Wow, thanks. That offers a whole lot of opportunities. We usually have a slide "what's happening next week" and we can add the link to our website into that.

    About adding youtube videos into the presentation: Do you know how I can make it autoplay?

    I added instructions for enabling Autoplay in Youtube links.

    The full screen mode (i.e. http://www.youtube.com/v/qEeUaNeQG50) does not seem to work for me.  No video is displayed.  If I used the autoplay parameter as well, it will start playing the video but there is audio only.  System is Windows 7 Ultimate and Home Premium.

    I'm getting the same thing as Douglas. The link I have is: http://www.youtube.com/v/VhydpNpGPNQ&autoplay=1

    Peace & Blessings,

    Turns out that none of these work u nless you make the projector the primary monitor.  Once I did that I was able to get full screen on these videos.  Not the most ideal solution and hopefully the guys at Logos can figure this one out, but it works for now.

    This does not work... I have the Enable Autoplay exactly as presented here... all I get is a grainy youtube logo...if it is still uploading there is no indication of that.

    The YouTube logo is the favicon from the Youtube site. That's all you'll see under edit and preview. When you go on-air, the actual website will load in your on-air window only.

    I believe this was done for several reasons. The main one was to avoid having to choose whether to 1) show possibly out-of-date content in the preview/edit screens when not on-air or else 2) constantly refresh the preview/edit screen with web content, chewing up lots of system resources as well as bandwidth. (Imagine a presentation with numerous web service items!)

    Also, it should help with usability, not leaving open the question of which screen to click on when you wish to interact with a website (clicking on links, etc.) during the presentation.

    Thanks for that clarification. I would never have tried to go ON AIR if the preview wasn't working! I downloaded the youtube video via another program and now have it loaded up that way. Thanks for the info.

    I see John. We are working on making the preview work on these service order items types.

    Hi,

    Is there an updated status for this issue? We still cannot view these web items.

    We're able to get fullscreen from Vimeo, but don't like that it won't auto-play.

    OTOH, the fullscreen links from YouTube are not working for us. The audio plays, but no video. 

    We use the projectors as an extended desktop.

    Best,

    Michael

    J,

    We'll test it and get back to you on the post here. Have you tried this using the projector as a second monitor?

    Hi Michael. Could you tell me which operating system you are using, and also which version of Proclaim you are running (you can find this under "Help - About Proclaim", it's the number that looks like 1.06.0.0522). Thanks!

    Michael, currently there is a known issue in Proclaim where full screen YouTube videos do not work on Windows computers. I have added some notes regarding this to the first post of this thread, under "Known Issues". Development is aware of the issue, and there is an active case for this problem.

    I will assume you are on a Windows machine, and that is why you are seeing this problem. If you are not on a Windows machine, please let us know and we can dig into this further. Thank you.

    Ann Boyles:

    I am a big fan of Proclaim. I use it with my youth group using my Mac and with the congregation with our church's Windows machine. It is really frustrating that I can link YouTube videos in Youth, but have to drag a window during regular Worship services when we want to show a video. 

    Can we expect some resolution of this "known issue" soon? Thanks a million for your hard work on this great product.

    Blessings,

    Will

    Just got YouTube to work under Windows 7 on Monitor 2 extended desktop using the Pop-out URL.

    1) Right Click on the Video.

    2) Select Pop Out from the Context Menu

    3) Highlight and Copy the URL in the pop out window

    4) Paste into Proclaim

    FYI I use Chrome as my web browser.

    The ability to play You Tube Videos has not yet been completely worked out as of yet as far as I can tell.  We have been waiting for this feature along with dvd playback for quite some time now.  Almost a year.  I'm not sure what the latest status is.  I haven't seen any recent updates. They did make it so that you can at least see a You Tube 'Page' and allow the video to play on the 'Page' but not a clean  "Full Screen" On Air Video.  Definitely not in Windows at least.  We've been forced to download the You Tube Videos and convert them to mp4 and then run them as a video slide as a work around.

    Liz and Brian, What version of Windows are you on? And, have you tried the directions from Brian above?

    The ability to play a DVD clip is coming soon.
