3.  Module Highlights

     3.1  Easy of use, DNN 9.2 based, Content Localization, HTML 5 & Flash player, Advanced Player Features, Video/Audio format support, Browser & Device support, MP4 video encoding online/offline, YouTube import
     3.1.1 Fully rewrote based DNN 9.2, provide setup wizard to make it easy of use

                   P1 - Setup
  v7.2 is fully rewrote based DNN 9.2, to utilize the new features in DNN 9 platform (like the services framework mechanism, Ajax, form pattern). And we try our best to make this module easy of use and self-explanation. When you run module first time, it will show a setup wizard  to guide you to configure it step by step, all you need to do is click "Next" to follow wizard. It is so easy.

      3.1.2 Content localization support, allows you to publish information (media description / categories / tags, etc.) with multiple languages (e.g. English, French and Chinese) in same portal
       Localization in DNN can be done in two different ways, Cross Video Gallery supports both of them well. Which way to choose depends on the content of your site, and how you want to localize this content for different languages and countries.
      The simplest way to start offering your site in multiple languages is to add a portal per language. Cross Video Gallery supports this situation easily using its setup wizard. For example, if you want to publish articles to both English and Chinese readers, you can create two portals ( and, and configure two different sites with Cross Video Gallery. This is the classical (old) way in DNN world.

       The second way is to offer multiple languages content in same portal. For example, publish pages/videos with both Chinese and English, when Chinese reader visit your site, show Chinese content of pages/videos; when English reader visit your site, show English content of pages/videos. For this situation, DNN has a built-in feature (since DNN 7.0) called "Content Localization". This feature allows a site owner to duplicate a site for each desired language, and permit a seamless switch between the different languages. This is today's popular trend and we strongly recommend you to choose this way to support multiple languages.

      Cross Video Gallery works seamless with this localization way, and it uses a elegant method to handle multiple contents. All data in Cross Video Gallery (media description/categories/attributes/tags, etc.) can be localized, and you only need to focus the necessary part. For example, the video title should be translated into different languages, but video image doesn't need to translate.  The localization mechanism in Cross Video Gallery is straightforward and easy.

      3.1.3 Supports both HTML5 & Flash player to play your videos/audios
      Module supports both HTML5 & Flash player to play videos/audios. It automatically selects the best playback for your viewer's device and browser, so you deliver unparalleled video/audio experience on iPhone, iPad, Android, Mobile, and the Desktop.

      Also visit, you will see Cross Video Gallery play it using adobe Flash because it is a .flv video and can't be played via HTML 5 video tag.

     Since Cross Video Gallery supports both Flash and HTML5 on desktops. MP4 is the single format that can be used to serve all browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox, etc) and devices (iOS, Android, etc).

It is easy to use and supports drag uploading.
