This topic covers the installation of the Brightcove connector for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM).

Introduction

The Adobe-AEM-Brightcove Connector allows you to manage Brightcove Video Cloud videos and players within AEM, and easily embed videos in AEM pages.

Getting Started

If you do not already have an AEM dev instance, you can easily create one using the AEM Quickstart .jar file:

java  -Xmx1400M -jar AEM_6.3_Quickstart.jar

If you use this Quickstart, your AEM instance will be hosted at: http://localhost:4502 by default. The following sections will assume this default location, so if you are using a different location or port, you will need to adjust the URLs shown in the steps, or use the AEM navigation menu instead.

Installing the connector

The following steps will walk you through installing the connector.

  • Go to https://github.com/coresecure/Adobe-AEM-Brightcove-Connector/releases and download the latest version of the connector (the brightcove-all...zip file).
  • Start your dev instance of AEM.
  • After you login, go to the CRX Package Manager (http://localhost:4502/crx/packmgr/index.jsp)
  • Click the Upload button:
    Upload Package
    Upload Package
  • In the Upload dialog, browse to the zip file for the connector and click OK to upload it.
  • When the package appears in the list, click Install to install it:
    Install Package
    Install Package
  • Go to the console bundles page (http://localhost:4502/system/console/bundles) to verify that the package is active:
    Verify Package Status
    Verify Package Status

When you have completed these steps, the connector is successfully installed, and you should proceed to the Configuration.
