FAQ

How do I add a Films on Demand video from the NECC Library?

Visit the Library's Films on Demand page

Posting a Link
=============

You may post the permanent link (Title URL) for a Films On Demand video within the Blackboard LMS in order to correctly share it.
You may obtain the permanent URL (Title URL) by navigating to the following location within the Films On Demand account:

  • Title URL -> Located at the bottom of the video display page(the page where the video plays) of any film title under the "Title URL" caption.
  • If you want to share a segment of a video then the permanent link (Segment URL), after you have selected the segment on the right-hand side of the video display page under the <Segments> tab, is located at the same location but it will be listed under the "Segment URL" caption.

If you are accessing from on-campus, then you will be taken directly to the video. If you are accessing from off-campus, then you will be taken to your institution's log-in portal first (only once) to verify that you belong to the school and then taken directly to the video.

Embed Code
======================

You may click on the <Embed> link which is located beneath the video player on the view video page (the page where the video plays) where you may then copy the listed embed code for the video and post it within your institution's Blackboard LMS so that the video will play within the Blackboard LMS.

When integrating Films On Demand content into Blackboard LMS by embedding videos,  a form of authentication called the Embed Code Referring URL authentication is used.

The Embed Code Referring URL authentication has been enabled for NECC's Blackboard (https://neccbb.blackboard.com) thus users are able to play the embedded videos, once the standard "Embed Code" and not the "Alternate Embed Code" is used, without being prompted to enter a Films On Demand username / password. This applies whether they are on-campus or off-campus as long as they have already logged into Blackboard.
