Video Player in Qlik Dashboard bundle

Hello, 

I have struggled to get my .mp4 file to play with the new custom object that was provided in the latest february 2021 release. I have read the https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/August2021/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Visualizations/Dashboa...

and also searched the community but couldn't find anything useful. 

I have the file and I can have it in a sharepoint and link it but couldn't get it to work it from there. I have also uploaded locally on the QS server and link to that, with no success. Example: \\Servername\QlikSource\Prod\Qlikfiles\Video.mp4

Are there any access rules that I have to configure or something in my URL that is wrong? The QS server is not allowed to access the internet which means I can not try a youtube video or similar. It has to be something existing on our internal network. Which is why I tried \\Servername\QlikSource\Prod\Qlikfiles\Video.mp4

This is Corporate news that I would like to upload to our Qlik Sense enterprise solution for sharing.

Thanks for any suggestion!

I found this article:
https://community.qlik.com/t5/Knowledge/Folder-location-path-is-not-supported-to-be-used-in-Video-pl...

Which exclude the posibillity to use a folder to play it. The remaining solution is to reference the video file on the internal network. 
For example, our Qlik Sense adress is https://site.qliksense.company.com/hub/ and add the .mp4 file after that somehow. How can I get Qlik Sense to access
https://site.qliksense.company.com/localfiles/MyVideo.mp4

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi @edwi0012 ,

 

I appreciate this is an old post but I am looking at the same functionality at the moment.

 

We're you able to solve this?

I had hoped to use a "Content Library" in Qlik Sense to serve the file. Oddly while it will show from the content library address ("https://qlikserverurl>/content/<content library name>/<filename>.mp4 ") via a browser session I cannot get the video player extension to open the file.

Best,
