Hi,

Does sharepoint 2010 supports all video file formats? If not, could I  play mpeg4 file formats in SharePoint 2010?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank

You can create a silverlight player that supports mp4:

2 options:
1. Silverlight player as mentioned above.
2. you can also play a video by embeding ur player script (e.g. flash player) in Content Editor webpart.

Amit,

Thank you for your suggestion.

Initially I tried to use Media Web Part but I am getting "Media failed to load" for .wmv file. then I used content editor web part and added embed script and it's working fine.But I want to use Media Web part only since we can add display image for videos.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey guys...my requirement has been changed.Upload video files is not a one time process.Users are going to upload video files frequently.So,I have created Assets Library for uploading video files  and uploaded one sample .wmv file but when i try to play video under assets library,am getting "Media failed to load" message.

Can you please let me the reason for that?

Any help would be appreciated.
