Your websites and applications access Dynamic Media services by way of URL calls. After you publish an asset, Dynamic Media activates a URL string that references the asset. You can paste these URLs into a web browser for testing.
You link to URLs only if you are
using AEM as your WCM. Linking–versus embedding–is used when you want to deliver a video player as a pop-up or modal window. If you are using AEM as your WCM,
you add the assets directly on your page.
To place these URL strings in your web pages and applications, copy them from Dynamic Media.
URL strings are only available for dynamic renditions of assets. They are currently not available for static assets that reside in DAM and not the dynamic media server. The URL button does not appear for renditions that are static.
You can obtain a URL string that is generated by an Image Preset or a Viewer Preset. After you copy the URL, it lands on the Clipboard so you can paste it as necessary to pages in your website or application.
The URL is not available to copy until you have published the selected asset. In addition, you must also publish the viewer preset or image preset.
HTTP/2 is the new, updated web protocol that improves the way browsers and servers communicate. It provides faster transfer of information and reduces the amount of processing power that is needed. Delivery of Dynamic Media assets can now be over HTTP/2 which provides better response and load times.
