Forcing Guests to Watch Short Video Clip

I think I remember seeing this demo with Amigopod.   Is this capability still available in ClearPass Guest (6.2)?  If so, is there any documentation available?  I don't see reference to this configuration anywhere.

Re: Forcing Guests to Watch Short Video Clip

I have not used the built in video capability, but from the top of my head:

How about using a library like http://www.videojs.com/ .

The videojs-library can fire an event when the video is done playing ( Like displaying the login form ) :)

Have not tried this myself but if it works, you could even add this functionality to the Internal Captive Portal by using this library :)

 

Edit:

 

Just tested this and it works!

Of course this library depends on the html5 <video> tag so your compatibility list would probably be something like:

 

Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari.

 

You can of course create a fallback so that the users with non-compatible browsers will get to the login form anyways

Can you post the script or a quick how-to that you used here so others can also take advantage of this option?

Thank You,

Re: Forcing Guests to Watch Short Video Clip

Thank you.   Can anyone from Aruba confirm whether or not this can be done natively in CPPM/CPG or do is Nesvik's script the way to go?

 

Either way, thanks for sharing Nesvik.

In Guest it was always done by using custom scripts just like the example that Nexvik posted. Most of the customers we using the redirect to a video after a customer logs in.

Embedding a Youtube video was a feature of the Advertising module in Amigopod that was not included in the ClearPass product.

Rumors of the advertising module's death have been greatly exaggerated.  Expect to see this functionality return in a future version of ClearPass.

Re: Forcing Guests to Watch Short Video Clip

OK, I assumed it was part of the product itself, but I guess that is not the case.   So if a customer wants to do this today, it will need to be done through something like Nesvik's suggestion?     But, perhaps with a return of the advertising functionality, it may someday be more integrated?
