Movie server closes

This summer, one of the university’s old servers with many movie files closes. Before summer, you need to look at where your films are stored so they do not disappear.

The server which mainly contains educational films no longer has a support agreement. Instead, since last autumn the university has a streaming service, HB Play, to collect all video material. HB Play offers a number of new features, for example that movies can be played on mobile devices.

The old server has a high number of files of different formats. Before the Campus and IT services, which are responsible for the server, closes it, they would encourage all employees to check the links to their movies.  

The old server will be closed June 30, 2018. After that, all movies will be archived. After the server is closed, all links to movies on the old server will cease to function.

How do I know if my movie is affected?

If you have published a link to a movie on a website or in PING PONG, you need to control the link to see if your file is affected. If the link contains any of the following, it needs to be moved:

  • stream.hb.se
  • winstream.hb.se
  • player.hb.se
  • video.hb.se

What do I do if my movie is affected?

If your file is on the old server, you need to move it to the university’s streaming service HB Play. Please contact the Campus and IT services for instructions.
