Video Services

TBD: Confirm video process

What is this service?

Request this service to publish Video to MSDN, TechNet, YouTube, Channel 9 or Showcase.

What are my options?

For MSDN or TechNet library video the video publishing team will:

  • Upload the video and supply the submitter with the URLs, embed code, and the UUID (unique identifier). In this case, the submitter is responsible for adding the video to their content. Also, in this case, TOC information is not needed.
  • Upload the video, then create or edit a video page (content). In this case, if it is a new page, we need to know what technology or center like Windows, Office, SQL Server, etc. the content belongs to. We also need to know where in the Table of Contents (TOC) structure the content needs to be hooked up to.

Example: For SQL Server, there is a top-level video page. This will link to the video launch page:

Note if you already have a video posted and you would like to insert it into DxStudio, you will need to start from the beginning of the process above to republish it to MSDN before you can link to it in your topics.

For Channel 9, you must sign up as a Chn9 User and provide your user name. This allows you to own the video on the site as you will be required to subscribe to your post by using the +Follow button and follow up with customers on the page.
