Online Viewing Instructions
Log into the online portal with your W&L username and password. Then, if you choose "All Videos" you will see a list of all the videos you have access to. Note, the default limit may list only 10 per web page, but you can increase that number to view a larger list. Another method of finding a particular video is to use the Search function, located to the right of the "All Videos" icon. Click in the box and type the file name (or) or a portion of the name.
Note - you must login once prior to us being able to record a video specifically for you. That is, the system won't know your username until you do. So logistically, the very first time you request a recording (and only that first time) it will be more efficient for you to login to the portal - then make the recording request.
Select a video by clicking the icon associated with it. For computers, the system uses the Adobe Flash player. If it is not on your computer, you should be prompted to download it from the Adobe website. Be careful to uncheck any add-ons Adobe may try to include, if you don't want them. Ipads, IPhones, Android players all use their native h.264 players - no add in should be required.
There are several other functions you may find useful once a video has been selected. One is, by choosing the Share Media icon, you can email a video link to yourself or someone else. When the link in the email is clicked, the browser will be directed to the Portal login page. Then if the login user has access permission to see the video, the video will begin playing in an embedded player. Another function is the bookmark option. Click the bookmark at a point in the video and when that bookmarked video is chosen, the video will begin playing at that point (time) in the video file.
Note well. The search function will find a video from any tab, but to browse for all videos you have access to be sure to choose the "All Videos" tab. However you can (and you will) restrict the search to any particular 'category" you may have selected. Also note, the metadata information for the file date is the date the file was added to the system or the latest date some change was made to the file. For example, a file may be edited and the date will indicate the edited date, not the date of the recording. Most video file dates are included in the title - that is if the title is "VideoFile_14_08_15" it means the file was recorded on August 15, 2014. So to search for a video recorded on August 31, 2014, do a search "14_08_31" Make sense?
Finally, you should be aware that any clips you create from or comments you make to a video file will be visible to all viewers who have permission to view the original file.
