Introducing Media Center App for SharePoint 2013
January 2, 2015
In this post, I discuss the Media Center App, which is a SharePoint app that allows you to integrate your Windows Azure Media Services (WAMS) assets within SharePoint. This app is available for free at the Office store online In building this application, we saw an opportunity to combine the capabilities of WAMS with the new SharePoint 2013 app model. We aimed to build a SharePoint app that is available to both SharePoint Online and on-premises SharePoint customers, so we chose a SharePoint hosted app model. In this article, I discuss some of the reasons why this app is needed and the design choices we made to build it. I also go into more depth about the architecture of the app and provide descriptions and screenshots of the app functionality.
