Sharing permanent URLs for Films on Demand videos

In FIlms On Demand, click the word "share" below the video window, and then "embed link".  Copy the embed link, it should include the JJ proxy server prefix.

The permanent URL will look something like this:  https://ez.lib.jjay.cuny.edu/login?url=https://fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=100728&xtid=188345 

  Note it should include a string fod

Sometimes, the embed link leaves out the proxy server prefix.  If you do not see the JJ proxy prefix, PLEASE ADD IT BEFORE THE  video URL. That is,     https://ez.lib.jjay.cuny.edu/login?url=

 

TROUBLE SHOOTING:

We are aware of problems with some Films On Demand URLs in OneSearch. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we are working on it.  If you have a URL that contains the string  digital.films  or the string avod , it is old & may not work.  Please replace it; navigate to the Films On Demand platform, search for your video, and copy the embed url that has the fod string in it.
