Preview and play videos adaptively on Brand Portal with Dynamic Media support. Also, download the dynamic renditions from the portal and shared links.
Brand Portal users can:

  • Preview videos in Asset Details page, Card View, and link share preview page.
  • Play video encodes on Asset Details page.
  • View dynamic renditions in Renditions tab on Asset Details page.
  • Download video encodes and folders containing videos.

Nota:

To work with videos and to publish them to Brand Portal, make sure that your AEM Author instance is set up either on Dynamic Media Hybrid mode or Dynamic Media Scene 7 mode.

To preview, play, and download videos, Brand Portal exposes the following two configurations to administrators:

Set either of these configurations based on the configurations you set in your AEM Author instance with which Brand Portal tenant is replicated.

Nota:

Dynamic videos are not supported on Brand Portal tenants integrated with AEM Author running on Scene7Connect runmode.

How are dynamic videos played?

Video encodes are fetched from cloud

If Dynamic Media configurations (Hybrid or Scene 7 configurations) are set up on Brand Portal, the dynamic renditions are fetched from Scene 7 server. Video encodes are, therefore, previewed and played without delay and distortion in quality.

As video encodes are not stored in Brand Portal repository and are fetched from Scene 7 server, ensure that the Dynamic Media configurations on AEM Author Instance and Brand Portal are the same.

Nota:

Video viewers and viewer presets are not supported in Brand Portal. Videos are previewed and played on the default viewers in Brand Portal.

Prerequisites

To work with dynamic videos on Brand Portal, make sure to:
  • Publish folders with video encodes applied to Brand Portal
    Apply video encodings and publish the folder containing rich media assets from AEM Author instance to Brand Portal.
  • Whitelist Egress IPs in SPS if secure preview enabled
    If using Dynamic Media-Scene 7 (with secure preview enabled for a company), then it is advised that Scene 7 company administrator whitelists the public egress IPs for respective regions using  SPS (Scene 7 Publishing System) flash UI.
    The Egress IPs are as follows:
Region  Egress IP
NA 192.243.237.86 
EMEA 185.34.189.4 
APAC 63.140.44.54 

To whitelist either of these Egress IPs, see prepare your account for secure testing service

Best Practices

To ensure that your dynamic video assets are successfully previewed, played, and downloaded from Brand Portal (and shared links), follow these practices:

  • Separate tenants for Dynamic Media Hybrid and Dynamic Media Scene 7 modes
    If you are using both Dynamic Media Scene 7 and Dynamic Media Hybrid features, it is advised that you use different Brand Portal tenants for AEM Author instances configured with Dynamic Media Hybrid and Dynamic Media Scene 7 modes.
Author and BP one to one mapping
  • Same configuration details at AEM Author instance and Brand Portal
    Ensure that the configuration details–such as Title, Registration ID, Video Service URL (in Dynamic Media Hybrid) and Title, credentials (Email and Password), Region, Company (in Dynamic Media Scene 7)–are the same in Brand Portal and AEM cloud configuration.
  • Whitelist public egress IPs for Dynamic Media Scene 7 mode
    If Dynamic Media Scene 7–having secure preview enabled–is used to serve video assets to Brand Portal, then Scene 7 establishes a dedicated Image Server for staging environments or internal applications. Any request to this server checks the origin IP address. If the incoming request is not within the approved list of IP addresses, a failure response is returned.
    The Scene 7 Company Administrator, therefore, configures an approved list of IP addresses for their company’s Secure Testing environment, through SPS (Scene 7 Publishing System) flash UI. Make sure that the egress IP for your respective region (from the following) is added to that approved list.
    To whitelist either of these Egress IPs, see prepare your account for secure testing service.
    The Egress IPs are as follows:
Region  Egress IP
NA 192.243.237.86 
EMEA 185.34.189.4 
APAC 63.140.44.54

Therefore, for video encodes to be played successfully in Brand Portal, ensure that the configuration details are the same as the Scene 7 cloud configuration in your AEM Author instance.   

  4. Select Connect to Dynamic Media.
