Morfik’s new Video Player Package provides the required functionality to play videos in a number of formats, such as MPG, WMV, AVI, MOV on web applications built with Morfik.
Use open access links to the actual video files and play them on your site with no need to provide additional coding. Simply place a Video Player widget on the form, enter a link and to the video and enjoy watching video on your website.
A quick walkthrough
To use Morfik’s Video Player Package simply add the package to the project with the ‘Used Packages’ command on the Project ribbon (see Figure 1.), or simply drag the package file onto the application main client area. Once added, a Video Player widget will appear on the home ribbon when the Form Designer is active (Figure 2). This widget can be placed on the application form and provides immediate functionality without the need for coding or configuration properties.

Video Player widget
To play a video, you will need an open access link to the video file on the Internet. Add the link to your video file in the Video URL property of the Video Player widget to enable this video to be played. For example, http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.mp4 is a link to the video on the web server. Simply entering this link into the Video URL property field (see Figure 3) will enable this video to be played on your website.
