HW69 Video Library for SharePoint 2013 Release 2.0.106.2013

Initial Release on Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013.

This build runs on SharePoint Foundation 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013. This release contains the same functionality as the equivalent version number of the SharePoint 2010 build of this product.

See the Known Issues and Limitations section for the latest known issues and limitations related to this release. For information about using this product, read the Online Documentation.

Known Issues:

• In some cases, Expression Encoder may fail to generate a thumbnail image. If this issue occurs, assign a custom thumbnail image to the video instead.
• When Video Library is connected to a File Share Library, overwriting a file directly in the File Share Library’s network file share causes the file’s metadata properties to be out of sync in the Video Library.
• When configuring Video Library to connect to a File Share Library, the required IIS virtual directory path must be HTTP.
• Auto-detected aspect ratio always used even when the “Auto-detect aspect ratio” setting is set to “No” in the Video Library advanced settings.

Limitations:

• Video Library can only connect to File Share Libraries in the same Web application.
• To connect Video Library to a File Share Library, the administrator configuring the Video Library settings must have the Manage Lists permission on the File Share Library.
• After a File Share Library is connected to a Video Library, its network file share path cannot be changed and the File Share Library cannot be deleted unless the Video Library is deleted or the connection to the File Share Library is reset.
• A File Share Library can only be connected to one Video Library at a time.
• Save as a list template does not support File Share library connection where to store media files.
• 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).
• Unable to send an item from a Bamboo Video Library to another SharePoint library which uses a different content type.
• ACC file types do not show metadata information such as format, duration, resolution and channel.
• When videos are uploaded, a copy is temporarily stored on the Web front-end server. Uploading multiple videos at once can reduce available hard drive space on the server.
• SharePoint Video Library content types cannot be modified.

SA12A Time Tracking and Management for SharePoint 2010 Release 1.6.46 Patch Update

Bug fixes:

• When creating the timesheets, the user receives the following error message: “”Reporting periods cannot have duplicate names, gaps between the last end date and the next start date, or overlapping start and end dates. Correct period parameters or naming conventions and try your changes again.” if the first start date is not the first date of the month, is a Saturday or a Sunday.
• After upgrading Time Tracking and Management to R1.5, when creating a new site using the site template the user receives the following error message: “A duplicate field named ‘content type’ was found.”

Known Issues:

• In the language files for the Alert Plus Web Part, if you modify text to a value that includes a space, such as changing “Edit” to “Edit Message”, a JavaScript error is displayed in the browser. This issue will be addressed in the next patch release.
• When accessing the site using HTTPS, clicking the “Preview Data” button in List Rollup Schema Designer in the “Configure task lists” Control Panel page will display a JavaScript error in the browser. This issue will be addressed in the next patch release.
• If you access the “Configure alerts” Control Panel page (AlertSetup.aspx) to configure alerts and have not installed and configured the Alert Plus Timer Job, the following error is displayed: “OnPreRender:: Could not load file or assembly ‘Bamboo.AlertPlus.Backend…”. KB.12690 for PM Central describes a similar error and how to remedy it.

Limitations:

• Grouping is case-insensitive in Report Center reports. For example, in a report that groups timesheet data project, data from two different projects with names “Project A” and “project a” will be grouped together.
• When adding views to the Report Views field for an item in the Report Configuration list, view names are case-sensitive. For example, “Approved Timesheets” and “approved timesheets” are not the same. The text must match the view name configured in the Timesheets list exactly.
