How do I find the video in Schoolpress that I would need to update?

As a Schoolpress user, here’s a quick way to know whether you are affected:

  • As the Schoolpress administrator, go to My Sites > Network Admin > Plugins.

  • Browse for the “Whipplehill Brightcove Video Player” or click on the Active link.

  • If the plugin is not in the active list, or has a link to ‘Network Activate’ - you are not affected!

  • If the plugin has been activated, you’ll need to browse your pages and posts to determine if video hosted by ON has been embedded.  

  • An ON video embedded on a page will have text in HTML that looks like [brightcove {url}].  Read on to learn how to replace this embed shortcode.

How do I update the embed code for video on a Schoolpress page that was uploaded to ON so that it works after Sept 30, 2017?

  1. Find video that needs replacing: Screenshot 2017-09-11 15.06.09.png

  2. Open the album detail page.  Play the video you want to replace in SchoolPress and click the Share button in the top right corner of the video.

  3. Copy the html from the Embed Code option. It should look like this:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

   4. Paste that code in place of the Brightcove shortcode in your post.
