Using an External Player to View Sessions

Instead of users viewing sessions with the built-in HMP player, as an administrator you can specify an external video player (e.g. the Microsoft Stream player) to help the HMP system reach large-scale internet audiences for live event streaming. You may also specify the viewer locations which should use the external player. All other locations use the HMP player.

To enable an external player for a session:

  1. On the Sessions list click 
     icon on the session you want to edit to open the Information pane.
  2. Click the Share tab.
  3. In the External Player section, toggle the Enable External Player button to On.
    External Player Enabled
  4. In the Player URL text box, enter the URL for the external player.
  5. In the Enabled Locations dropdown, select which locations will use the external player.


    • If you defined a default location in Configuring Locations, it is automatically added to the Enabled Locations list.
    • If you start typing in the text box, HMP displays a drop-down list of matching values that you can choose from.
  6. To enable the external player for all locations, check the Select All Locations checkbox. All locations are added to the Enabled Locations text box.
  7. Click the Save button.

  8. To return to the Library's Sessions list, click the
