Share Highlight Videos

Learn about the various ways to share highlight videos with stakeholders.

Morae provides various ways to share highlight videos with stakeholders. The following are some of the options:

Share on a Network

  1. Produce highlight clips.
  2. Copy the highlight videos to a network location that stakeholders can access.
  3. Send the link to the highlight video location to stakeholders.

You should try viewing the highlight videos from the network location prior to sending the link to stakeholders. Sometimes videos will not play well over a network.

Share with Email

  1. Produce highlight clips.
  2. Attach the highlight videos to an email.
  3. Send the email to stakeholders.

Video files are usually large and stakeholders may not be able to receive and open them. This option is best for very short clips.

Share on the Internet or Intranet

Because video files can be large, the best way to share them is by storing them on the internet or on an intranet so stakeholders can view them without having to download large files onto their computer.

You can do the following:

  • Produce and upload to Screencast.com.
    This option is good if you do not have a lot of experience with HTML and creating web pages.
  • Produce files and upload to another video hosting location or internal website.
    This option is for advanced users who have experience with HTML and creating websites.

Share Video on a Website

The best production option for sharing on a website is to produce your highlight videos in the MP4 format. This format produces the following output files:

  • .html: HTML wrapper that opens in the viewer's default Web browser.
  • .mp4: Self-contained video that plays within the free, downloadable QuickTime Player.
  • .png: A thumbnail of the first frame of the storyboard (used on Screencast.com).
  • Player files needed to play the embedded video: expressInstall.swf, swfobject.js, and videoplayer.swf

To share an MP4 file:

  1. Produce a highlight video or video clips, selecting the MP4 video encoding option.
  2. When production is complete, click Open production folder and locate the folder containing the created files.
  3. Copy all of the files in the folder onto a web server.
  4. Create and share a hyperlink from the website that points to the .html file on the web server.

Share Highlights with a Mac User

If you would like to share highlight videos with a Mac user, you can either Share on the Internet or Intranet, or you can share an MP4 file.

An MP4 file is a self-contained video that plays within the free, downloadable QuickTime Player from Apple. QuickTime is the default media player for Mac operating systems.

To share an MP4 file:

  1. Produce a highlight video or video clips, selecting the MP4 video encoding option.
  2. When production is complete, click Open production folder and locate the folder containing the created MP4 files.
  3. Copy and distribute the MP4 file located in the folder. You do not need any of the additional files to play an MP4 in QuickTime.
