How to Add a Video to a PME Dashboard

Published date: 19 October 2018

Issue
How to configure and play a video in a PME dashboard.

Product
PME 8.1, PME 8.2

Environment
PME 8.1 Dashboard
PME 8.2 Dashboard

Cause
Customize a PME dashboard to display and play a video.

Resolution
After adding a Web Viewer gadget to a dashboard, the Source setting on the Content tab can be configured in one of two methods depending on the location of the video.

If the video is publicly accessible, the Source parameter of the Web Viewer gadget can be configured to use the URL that links directly to the video.
Example:  https://www.youtube.com/embed/9JkFCkp6hmk

If you would like your video to autoplay in dashboards, add the Autoplay parameter to the end of URL. After the URL add the following text ?autoplay=1
It should now look like this (changes are in blue): https://www.youtube.com/embed/9JkFCkp6hmk?autoplay=1

If the video is not publicly accessible, another option is to create a folder called \media on the PME server
under …\\Applications\ApplicationFramework and save the video at that location.

The Source parameter of the Web Viewer gadget can then be configured to the URL, http://web/media/
