Where possible, videos should be integrated directly into the content area of a page. In terms of how they are used, video players as with all application components generally should be based on well-known and trusted internet platforms.
Thanks to the current browser standard IE11, special video players are no longer required. Instead, the HTML5 video element can be used. Please see the technical requirements for this (MP4 and H.264-Codec).
6.12.1.Videos on the intranet
In addition, infrastructure considerations need to be borne in mind for videos on the intranet, such as the maximum file size of 50–60 MB for embedded films.
In general, videos from official sources, such as Mercedes-Benz TV or the Daimler YouTube channel, can be integrated directly, as these sites have been approved for the intranet.

6.12.2.Videos on the internet
It is recommended for all sites and applications that are available on the internet that videos be integrated via the Daimler YouTube channel. In doing so, it is important to have the rights to all images of people as well as the reproduction of images and sounds to avoid copyright problems.
COM/IC Web Communications can be tasked with the upload.
