Configuring Video Provider Support

In Jive Hosted and On Premise environments, you can enable and disable certain video providers and add new providers if they are supported. By default, users can embed video content hosted by YouTube, Vimeo, Veoh, and Dailymotion.

Fastpath: Admin Console: Spaces > Settings > Filters and Macros

When users create content and embed videos, they see the supported video provider list as part of the helper text under the embed code field. This list is modified when you enable and disable macros for each video provider in the Admin Console.

For information about enabling your users to embed videos from a non-public video archive via Kaltura and Brightcove, see Adding Kaltura as a Video Provider and Adding Brightcove as a Video Provider. Using these providers provides another layer of permissions around embedded video viewing on top of your Jive space permissions.

To enable and disable video providers:

  1. Go to Spaces > Settings > Filters and Macros and navigate to the space for which you want to enable or disable videos. If you want to apply the setting community-wide, select the root space.
  2. Scroll down to the Video Macro settings and set the macros you want to change to On or Off. Note that when you disable a provider macro that has been enabled previously, videos already embedded from that provider will show as disabled.
