Learn to extend the power of SharePoint by building and adding business apps, such as an issue tracking system and a promoted links list.
- [Instructor] This month, we're going to leverage one of the newer prebuilt applications, the Asset Library app, to manage our rich media assets for our organization. Whether those assets are currently stored in SharePoint or whether they've been uploaded to YouTube or are stored on file shares, we can use an Asset Library to pull all of those assets together and make them really easy for our users to locate and to use as they develop their own documents.
The Asset Library includes thumbnail views, which makes it easy to view the assets. It also includes this overlay with a menu. When I upload images to this library, they are automatically different renditions of that image created for my users' use, and any metadata that is associated with those image files and much of the metadata associated with video files will automatically be extracted when I upload the image. Additionally, when I add a video, whether I am uploading that video or embedding a video that's on a file share or published on the web, I get a landing page, which allows me and my users to associate other documents with that video to support it.
Asset Libraries can also be used to support podcasts, whether you are podcast in audio or video files, because they include a built in RSS feed. There's a lot to love about SharePoint Asset Libraries. Let's build one together.
