Video library and Media player - get prompted for credential before video can be played RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I created a webpart page and added the window media player along with a list of file (by using dataview webpart in SPD) from a video library. So that when the user clicks on the "Preview" link on the dataview, the player will play the video.

    Where "Preview" column of the dataview is defined as follow:

    javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent(concat('__redirect={Preview.aspx?url=/myvideoLib/',$thisNode/@FileLeafRef,'}'))}

    My library does have both images and videos, when I click on the image "Preview", the image does display on the video without prompting me for credential, but when I click the the video "Preview", I got prompted for credential. How can I get rid of this credential, is there any setting that I might have missed?

    Thanks in advance. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • It works now after I update the settings:

    Under Internet Option

     Scroll down to the bottom

    • Under "User Authentication/Logon", select "Automatic logon with Current Username and Password" and click "OK"
