Beta Video Player in Smartabase

This is a Beta Version of the Video Player ONLY. You MUST understand and abide my the following points:

1. DO NOT add this as a critical component into your Event Forms, please use it for testing purposes ONLY. When it is stable, we will release an updated version to be used in Event Forms.

2. Because of the time taken to upload and process the videos, you need to limit your uploads to 5 MB Clips (around 5 minutes).

3. If you lose your internet connection during the upload, the video will NOT upload and you will have to start again.

N.B. We are working on a solution for files larger than 5 minutes (e.g. game files).

You can now upload and view video files directly in any Event Forms using the new Beta "Video" Field

The size of the video, and your internet speed will dictate the speed at which the video is uploaded. Please be patient, and always limit your uploads to less than 5MB (about 5 minutes of video).

Secondly, in order for the video to be able to be played in the system's inbuilt video player, it has to be processed. You must wait to until the video processing stage has finished before you can Save and Close the entry
