Sometimes we require adding video content to our SharePoint site. There is a very simple way to achieve this functionality.

All we need is Content editor web part to be placed on the page. Source of video file can be from same web application or it can be external source as well or video sitting on some shared drive of your network which everybody has an access.

Go ahead and add content editor web part.

Add following line of code.

src="{URL of video / Shared Path pointing to video file}"

See the output below.

And that’s it. You are good to play your video file.
