This Week in Bamboo (April 24th, 2011 – April 30th, 2011)

SharePoint Video Library Release 1.3.8 was released to the storefront this week for both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 with new improvements, new features, and some resolved bugs.  At the same time, we fixed many issues and released patches for the following products:  Calendar Plus Web Part and Bamboo Column Level Security.  For the new version of Calendar Plus Web Part, we resolved the issues for Day, Week, and work Week views where the width of the last item is greater than first items on the same day.  Please see below for more details about the patches released this week.

SharePoint 2007 Products:

HW69 SharePoint Video Library Release 1.3.8 (SharePoint 2007)

New Features:

• Multiple File Upload now supported.

• Improved attribute extraction from media files.
• Support for hosted video sharing sites such as YouTube.
• Uses Microsoft Expression Encoder for automatic thumbnail generation.

• Uses new Setup program.

Bug Fixes:  Internal bug fixes only.

Known Issues:

• Auto-detected aspect ratio always used, even if the “Auto-detect aspect ratio” setting is set to “No” in the Video Library advanced settings.

Limitations:

• Users may receive a timeout error when uploading large video files (>50MB) to a Bamboo Video Library. For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925083.
• A mixed content warning is displayed if an absolute HTTP path is entered for a custom thumbnail image in an HTTPS SharePoint environment. Workaround: Use a relative path (/site/path) for custom thumbnail images.
• If a YouTube media link has a Description field that contains more than 255 characters, the following warning is displayed in the Edit Item page: “This field can have no more than 255 characters.”
• Thumbnails are not generated for video file types such as MP4 and FLV. This is a limitation of Microsoft Expression Encoder 3 (free version).
