One of the best webpart/enhancement in SharePoint 2010 is MWP i.e. Media Web Part. If you are thinking about the functionality as How to use, what kind of formats are supported by this webpart, can we use it in previous versions…etc. I know there are so many questions are rolling up in your mind and here is the answer:
Coming back to the Problem and its Resolution:
If you are not able to view the Media webpart in your webpart gallery then make sure that the ‘SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature’ is activated at the site collection level.
Note: You should be a site collection administrator to activate this feature.
How to activate this feature?
· Open the sharepoint site
· Site actions
· Site settings
· Site collection administration
· Activate ‘SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature’
· That’s it-now you can view that webpart in webpart gallery.
One more point that I would like to share is-This feature plays a very important role at the site collection as well as at the site level.
If suppose, you are not able to view the following webparts then the activation of the above feature i.e. ‘SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature’ will also resolves the problem.
Which are these webparts?
· Content query webpart
· Summary links webpart
· Table of contents webpart
Now, you can imagine how important this feature is!!
If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know. I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, Thank you J
