PCF Control- Video Attachment Control

In this blog, we will see how we can upload the video attachments into D365 using the Video Attachment Control – PCF Control.

The VideoAttachmentControl is used to upload any kind of video file which is of mp4 format as of now. It also lets you have a live preview of the video file uploaded and the files are stored in D365 as notes (Annotation).

Scenario – Once the field technician completes his work in the field, he can capture and upload the completed work as video. Without visiting the site inspector can play the video and review it.

Here is the reference link for the solution files and the source code.
