Announcing two new features: Embed videos into your website and a Search plugin for your browser

We are pleased to announce two new features  that were recently added to NJVID.

Embed- Embed publicly accessible videos(Commons or public videos you uploaded) into your website or blog

The users first need to be logged in and be a  NJVID subscriber to use this feature. You can then use this feature by going to  the page of any video and clicking the "embed" button. The tool will generate a HTML code which you can copy and paste into any website or blog.You can also embed publicly accessible videos into a Learning Management System using pre-existing URL plugins.The embed code can be generated for small and large players in standard and wide screen formats. These embedded videos can be viewed on mobile devices as well.

You can visit http://njedge.net/embedded-player/ to view a demo of how a video can be embedded in a Wordpress website.

Videos that are protected will show a message indicating that the user will have to login through NJTrust to access the videos. If you are already logged into NJVID the video will show up in the embedded page.

NJVID Search plug-in for your browser (Firefox, IE, Chrome)

Ever felt the need to quickly search for videos and learning objects in NJVID through the browser search bar? You can now do this by adding our search plug-in to your browser (it works best on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer) and then search for videos without having to visit the NJVID website. You can do conditional searches example: news and media, news or media, partial phrase search example:  journali*, and search term exclusion example: math -basic

The plug-in and its relevant documentation is available at http://www.njvid.net/plugins/
