How to play Videos in OBIEE
I was actually wanted to host a virtual directory using the web logic server in OBIEE 11g and place all the video and audio files there. But I am unable to find the way as yet so for the time being here is the workaround.
Turn on the windows IIS feature from the Control panel - Install/Uninstall program section
Reboot the computer. Go to C drive and in the options - select view all hidden folders.
Find out the C:\inetpub\wwwroot and create a folder inside this location and place all your files in that folder.
Go to command prompt and restart IIS service.
iisreset /noforce <Computer name>
The video file can be accessible using this URL-
Now go to the OBIEE11g or 10g ( I am using Internet Explorer )
Go to Edit dashboard and add Text object.
Put this kind of code:
<embed src="http://USBLRNMEHANDAL1/Nachiket/123.wmv" width="420" height="250" CONTROLLER="true" LOOP="false" AUTOPLAY="false"></embed>
Save the changes .
Play the video on this dashboard page :-)
Enjoy and let me know if anybody knows how to deploy a virtual directory in web logic server with steps.
