eLecture - play archived video as part of lecture

Postby dd-pcfd » Wed Aug 03, 2016 1:24 pm

Our trainers frequently show video to their students as part of their lecture. is there a way to incorporate a stored video as one of the video stream in an eLecture lecture? Maybe from the archival server?

Or is there another way?

eLecture provides live streams only. However, it is possible to stream a stored video as a live stream, so the user will not be able to seek, pause etc...; it will be just like a live stream.
It's a little tricky to do that, because eLecture administration doesn't allow you to add a live playlist as a live broadcast. Live playlist allows switching between live and recorded streams.
What you need to do is in the eLecture administration console create a new live broadcast, any type. Then you would have to open Media Server Configurator, copy this newly created Alias, delete that newly created
live broadcast, create a new one, of type "Live Playlist" within the Media Server Configurator; and give it the copied Alias. So essentially you provide a "live playlist" type of broadcast instead of the type that you have chosen in eLecture administration console.
