How can I embed a Brightcove video in my Confluence page?

Kurt Stoll Dec 09, 2015

I try to embed a video link from our internal instance of Brightcove, but all I get is an icon for the widget.  It does not show the video.  Any tips on what could be missing or how to troubleshoot displaying videos in my Confluence page?  Thx!

Here's how we do it:

1. Insert a HTML Macro on the page that you want the video to play.

2. Insert the following code into the HTML macro:

<video data-video-id="xxxxxxxxxx" 
data-account="yyyyyyyyyyyy" 
data-player="default" 
data-embed="default" 
data-application-id 
class="video-js" 
controls 
width="712" 
height="400">
</video>
<script src="//players.brightcove.net/yyyyyyyyyyyy/default_default/index.min.js"></script>

Where:

 xxxxxxxxxxx is the ID of the Brightcove video

yyyyyyyyyy is the Brightcove account ID

Depending on what you have for players, you can plug the name into the data-player value.  You can also manually add the width and height, to best fit your Confluence page.
