    Hi,
    i would like to access and embed video files stored on separate file server via the Telerik RADEditor Control for MOSS.

    The approach i am trying to do is create a virtual directory in IIS using UNC path (pointing to the file server and the directory where the video files are stored).

    I am unable to access the virtual directory (the path is http://localhost/videofiles -> referring to a file server \\10.42.54.36\Shared\Videos using the Telerik RADEditor Control for MOSS and using the mediamanager or other links on the telerik radeditor control for moss.

    Let me know how do i access the video files stored on a file server and embed them into the Telerik RADEditor control for moss. The RADEditor control is stored on a webpart page on sharepoint site which is a different server.

    Your response to this highly appreciated and required  urgently.

    Hello parshuram,

    In the dialogs of RadEditor for MOSS is incorporated custom content provide, which works with SharePoint libraries and not virtual or physical directories. Unfortunately at this point you can not set RadEditor for MOSS to use physical paths for its dialog and not libraries.

    What you can do is create a custom webpart which is based on the ASP.NET AJAX RadEditor, which has the file system content provider.  When you install RadEditor for MOSS a version of Telerik.Web.UI.dll is deployed to the GAC. Make sure that you are referring the same assembly in you custom webpart.

    hi stanimir,

    Please help me understand what i would need to do to access the Videos on the File Server.
    1. Create a webpart and inherit the Telerik RAD Editor control
    2. Use the file system provider to access the file server.

    Can you please let us know or point to any article in detail how is the file system provider used within the webpart. Kindly elaborate on the File System Provider.

    Your response is highly appreciated and would require it ASAP as we are in the middle of the this CRITICAL POC and would like to demo this to our client.


    Regards
    Ram

    Hi parshuram,

    What I suggested is to create a custom webpart which uses ASP.NET AJAX RadEditor from Telerik.Web.UI.dll. By default RadEditor uses file system provider. You can find information how to set different paths for the dialogs in our online help. For example for here is the article for MediaManager: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/media.html.

    Unfortunately we do not have an article or a sample webpart, however if you open an official support ticket and your license information is correct I can provide you with the source code of RadEditor for MOSS and there you can see how RadEditor webpart is implemented.
