Hi All,

Greetings for the day πŸ™‚ LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL πŸ™‚

Background : In our teams we have KT sessions, sometime some team member left the team or moved to another project so we need to arrange the KT sessions. Most of the time we keep the recordings of KT sessions for future references. Nowadays we have team recordings and either we put those on any central location or upload in Teams.

But as we have our own Azure DevOps projects as well and one of the feature of Azure DevOps is WIKI pages where we can have all the details including uploading documents, details and Videos as well.

So its good idea if will put all the require details in Azure DevOps. We are adding our project related KT videos in Azure DevOps WIKI

Details :

Azure DevOps home page for an organization

  • Navigate to the project for which we need to add our KT sessions recordings to respective WIKI pages
  • From project home page, navigate to WIKI section from left side pane as shown in below fig
Azure DevOps - Wiki section

  • For all recordings on one Wiki page, we will create Wiki page say – “KT session recordings”
  • How to crate new page in DevOps Wiki please refer my article – Microsoft Azure DevOps – Create a Wiki for your project
  • Once we have Wiki page in place we are ready add videos
  • On Wiki page >> under Title of the page >> click on “…” and then “Videos” as shown in below fig

  • Once we clicked on “videos” it inserts “Videos” tag as
::: video
<Insert iframe block from YouTube or Microsoft Streams here.>
:::
  • This Video tag accepts iframe and video url
  • Here I’ll add one of my session recordings from my OneDrive
  • So now we will go to OneDrive and generate the HTML as

  • Copy the generated Video and paste into those Video tags on DevOps Wiki page as
::: video
<iframe src="https://onedrive.live.com/embed?cid=65A95BD1E2FB35C8&resid=65A95BD1E2FB35C8%2114205&authkey=APiuhcjh_xBBQww" width="320" height="180" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  • Result will be

  • If you notice video is now showing in right hand side. Sometimes there is a problem when we use iframe.
  • There is alternative option also available using markdown syntax
  • There is Video tag which we can use as
<video src="https://vgsoca.sn.files.1drv.com/y4mjRXs_rSGdzIN_5sJUGzgQJLrUW3DLdE5iKY78JGr1GzlGnd6REMBTqfcdYoSROdL-WC6SsRutFNEmlVcQS6lsGx-DQIYha5MNyPQBc6VGvn2B3NAkYAV8ubi5aRGdpUmOQjU1Jt4ecm4u0pd_VUO_1Iwg4tSRLDmyO9r3fx8PZnU3oJU3xvti1730bBjSEtfj6MH153eeCcBs3H_md_g_6B5zOPPbKws7272FaX-XEY/Prasham.mp4" width=400 controls>
