If you want to enable Europeana to use your video material as part of thematic collections and make it more accessible on the Europeana website then the video needs to be embeddable (any oEmbed compliant player is supported by Europeana) or you need to provide at least a direct link to a video file in a format that can be played directly by modern browsers and supported in HTML5. The video file should have a minimum vertical resolution (height) of 480 pixels. Video files that meet these requirements will be accessible directly on the thematic collections pages as embedded videos.
Content Tier 3 (Europeana as a distribution platform for non-commercial reuse)
If you want to make use of Europeana as a distribution platform that enables the use of your video files by private individuals, educators and researchers then, in addition to the criteria described for Tier 2 above, you also need to make sure that the video file comes with one of the seven rights statements that allow reuse:
4 Creative Commons licences: CC BY-NC, CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC-SA, CC BY-NC-ND;
Content Tier 4 (Europeana as a free reuse platform)
If you want to make use of Europeana as a platform that enables the free reuse of your video files then, in addition to the criteria described for Tiers 2 and 3 above you also need to make sure that the video file comes with a rights statement that allows free reuse (CC BY, CC BY-SA, CC0 or PDM).
Overview of Content tier 2 -4 for video files
A video is available with vertical resolution equal
higher than 480 pixels OR embeddable media as edm:isShownBy**
For display purposes the edm:object value can be used to represent an illustrative image for the video type records. Example here and here.
*A video resource is available=true if one of the edm:WebResource associated via edm:isShownBy or edm:hasView exists AND technical metadata (ie. ebucore:hasMimetype filled) is extracted from that media resource
**Embeddable media as edm:isShownBy - list of URLs validated for embedding
The * wildcard means that it can match any text within that section of the URL. Also note that anything after the end of the URL pattern is acceptable.
