*LIST of Library Information: Films on Demand Access

Q: I can't open up the Films on Demand link. What can I do?

For PowerPoint : You need to first log into Films on Demand on your default browser (the one that opens up automatically when you click links)  so the authentication cookie is loaded. 

Then when you click the FOD link in PowerPoint, it will open as if you put the link directly into your browser.

A: First open a direct Films on Demand link to make sure the direct link is working. This sets a cookie on your computer. Once the cookie is set, you should be able to use the link provided by your instructor. This also applies to opening links within a PowerPoint presentation.

Common fixes:
Enable cookies.
Allow pop-ups.
Update your browser.
Try another browser.
Reboot your computer.

If that does not smooth your access, then these are the most common issues:

User Side:

  • User didn't put @fvtc.edu after their Student-ID-Number/Staff-ID
  • User may need to create/reset their MyFVTC password. Go to MyFVTC and select "Reset Your MyFVTC Password" link to reactivate/reset password.

Teacher side:

  • Content not added as URL content in Blackboard.
  • Not using most current permanent link provided below the FOD video
    Working Example: Researching, Reading, and Writing (12:00)
    Correct URL: https://login.applibproxy.fvtc.edu/login?url=https://fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=96224&xtid=40414
  • Video has not been set to automatically "Open in New Window"

Films on Demand and Power Point

To make Films on Demand Links work in a Powerpoint Presentation:

1) Open Internet Explorer and making it your default browser if asked.

2) Launch Films on Demand: Go to Library Resources Homepage and select Library Databases A-Z and click on Films on Demand to launch.

3) Present: Now when you click the hyperlink to a Films on Demand video, it will go to the film instead of a Films Media log-on page.
