    Hi,

    I am trying to play a video using an URL.

    But i am not able to play it.

    Can you suggest me the best approach for this?

    <telerik:RadMediaPlayer ID="RadMediaPlayer1" runat="server" Height="360px" Width="640px"            
        Source="http://localhost/XTPSaaS/Albums/a344f305-f9e3-4ff6-b2ec-8ce4fa60c432/o_Screwdriver.avi">
    </telerik:RadMediaPlayer>

    Regards,

    Varun R

    Hi Varun,

    Please note that you should provide a video with the appropriate format. Since the RadMediaPlayer extends the basic functionality of the HTML5 video tag, it supports the same formats as browsers do + FLV (Flash video):
    ( HTML Video - Browser Support )
    http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp

    In the aforementioned link you can check what format the video you are providing should be.

    In this case, I am afraid .avi is not supported by browsers:

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Chandan,

    When playing FLV videos, the player renders a Flash <object>. If the environment on your mobile software does not support Flash player plugin, the videos would not play. You can try to use .mp4 videos instead.

    Hope this helps.
