Getting Videos in SharePoint 2013 to play without Silverlight

November 21, 2012 13:26 by keithkaragan

TIL Getting Videos in SharePoint 2013 to play without Silverlight requires a properly encoded video file (I used a H.265, MP4 file).
I had a sample SharePoint 2013 site installed (content, styling, etc.) and was going a cuckoo because all the videos uploaded were playing in the Silverlight player. It finally occurred to me that maybe it needs to be in a format that the HTML5 player can handle. I uploaded the file and it plays without Silverlight.

Using the default search center in the SPO Preview:

  • 'Everything' search results preview uses Silverlight
  • 'Video' search results preview is HTML5
  • 'Feed' preview is HTML5
  • In the library where the video is located, HTML5 is used for the view based pop-up player and the item display player.
