Update Notice

For the first time this version of the VideoManagementPro module comes with support for FirstSpirit servers operating in isolated mode. Furthermore the module now supports Java 9 and 10.

The VideoManagementPro module uses the Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) and the JavaBeans Activation Framework (JAF). With Java 9, both were removed from the Java SE Platform. If a FirstSpirit server runs on Java 9 or above, JAXB has to be provided to FirstSpirit explicitly. Starting from FirstSpirit 2018-09, the JAF has to be provided to FirstSpirit as well. Therefore the distribution contains the modules jaxb-fs-library-2.3.0.fsm and jaf-fs-library-1.2.0.fsm, that put the JAXB and the JAF on FirstSpirit’s global classpath.

Version 1.3.12

Update Notice

The following section is only relevant for a migration from a previous VideoManagementPro version.

Support for multiple VideoManager instances in VideoManager Pro made it necessary to change the internal format of the video IDs in FirstSpirit (from a simple key to a classifying key). If the same VideoManager instance is used as before the update, a non-persistent online migration is performed at runtime. In this case, no changes to the FirstSpirit forms are necessary.

If, however, the technical user or the VideoManager instance is changed, the dependencies in the project component must be observed.

If the "Use this user in the preview" checkbox is not activated, the VideoManager instance of the user used in the project must be identical to that of the technical user.

If a new VideoManager instance is defined as the default, the video player of the videos referenced in the project potentially changes. In this case, the referenced videos must be exchanged to avoid errors in the preview and the live state. Re-selecting a video transmits the new video ID so that no online migration is necessary after successful storage.
