Blackboard Video Integration for Films on Demand

Article ID: 25
Last updated: 08 Jan, 2015

If you are using the Films on Demand service from our library with Blackboard Learn there are some specific tips to help you integrate both Title/Segment URLs and an Embedded Player.

  • When embedding videos, add the video as a Course Document. Be sure to click on the "HTML Source Mode (< >)" icon before adding the code into the editor.
  • When linking Title/Segment URLs, select the "Open in new window" option. This step is important to avoid the known issues between Blackboard and Internet Explorer 8.
  • Problem viewing video content from a Blackboard link? Are you getting security prompts which may allow or block content access?
    1. From your browser menu, click Tools.
    2. Click Internet Options from the drop-down menu.
    3. Click Privacy.
    4. Click Sites.
    5. Copy the Blackboard URL (e.g., http://xx.blackboard.com/) and paste it into the "Address of website" box.
    6. Click Allow.
    7. Click OK two times to exit.
