Scene7 provides a convenient method of previewing MP4 video on the desktop. Use this method to preview mobile content on the desktop without physically testing it on mobile devices. Be aware, however, that what you see in the desktop preview does not realistically show what playback looks like on the mobile device. To preview how video looks and plays on a mobile device, go to the Preview screen, select the Copy URL and enter that URL in the web browser of a mobile device. For more information, see Deploying video to your websites and mobile sites.
Users watch videos in the Video Viewer. How the Video Viewer behaves, what it looks like, and how its playback controls work depends on the Viewer Preset you choose for playing the video. You choose a Viewer Preset on the Preview screen. After you choose a preset, you can obtain the URL or the embed code for playing the video using the Viewer Preset you chose.
Scene7 comes with many predefined Viewer Presets for playing video, and if you are an administrator, you can create custom Viewer Presets. There are more than a dozen different settings for configuring the Video Viewer. You can configure its size, color, video and audio controls, progress bar, user-interface skin, and social features.

You can use Viewer Presets to see various viewer types and their pre-defined settings. You can also add and edit your own customized viewer presets or edit existing viewer presets that come with Scene7 Publishing System.
