You can link to most streaming videos using OneSearch, the same as for other online library resources. However, many streaming media databases offer options for linking directly or embedding videos in Canvas. Here are instructions for some of the most popular streaming video providers.
For Swank Digital Campus, there are two kinds of links:
Search or click on any title, and the title preview pane appears on the bottom of the page
On the Title Preview, click Share
Select Copy Direct Link or Copy LMS Link
Below every video on the Kanopy website, you will see a button which says "Share/Embed." Clicking on this button will display three options for sharing and embedding films:
All sharing and embedding options are also available below any clip or playlist you create as well.
If you are linking to a playlist and would like to begin at a specific clip, you can force the video to start at this clip by adding "&pos=#" at the end of the sharing link. Replace the # with the position number of the clip within the playlist. For example, if you want the video to begin at the second clip, the URL in the HTML code will look similar to this: "https://sfpl.kanopystreaming.com/node/12345&pos=2"
Alexander Street video and audio content can be integrated into Web pages and learning management systems in two ways: links or embeds. Both are provided for video and audio content, playlists, and clips in all Alexander Street collections. Look for the following symbol below throughout the Alexander Street new interface for items this feature is available for:
Using a link will provide a permanent digital pathway to a specific video, audio album or work, part of a video, audio track, playlist, or clip. Using an embed will generate Java-based code that can be used to add a full-featured Flash-based player directly into any Web page. As with links, embeds can be used for videos, parts of videos, albums, audio tracks, playlists, or clips.
When linking to content, please be sure to either copy and paste the URL in the text of the popup screen. Do not use the URL displayed in your Web browser's address bar. If you are copying a link into a learning management system, insert it as plain text and not as a Web link, and be sure not to add any spaces to the inserted text.
When embedding content, please be sure to either copy and paste the complete text of the embed code in the popup screen. You can check by verifying that the code starts with “<script” or “<iframe” and ends with “/script>” or “/iframe>”. This embed code should be used only in Web pages. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, email clients, and other desktop software do not support this code. Depending on the Web editor you are using, you may need to use the “source code” option for inputting embed codes, as plain text may not be supported.
