Brightcove & Adobe CQ5 integration

While Adobe CQ5 offers many out of the box video capabilities, some of our customers are using Brightcove’s video cloud platform and need to integrate the two technologiess. Adobe Solution Partner Coresecure have developed a very nice integration piece for connecting CQ5 with Brightcove.

I’ve downloaded the package and tested with my CQ5 installation and the content author experience is as nice as possible. Just drag & drop the Brightcove component onto a page in CQ, then search and drag the video you want to play from the Content Finder. That’s it! Sizing & alignment options are also available via the dialogue.

Features & Benefits

The Brightcove Video Cloud CQ5 component includes the following features:

  • Browse your Video Cloud account within the CQ5 interface
  • Search for videos by Video ID or by name
  • Embed a video and player into a page

A full guide on the integration capabilities is here

Getting Started Guide

Installation Instructions and an Administrative Guide can be found on, by visiting Coresecure or download directly from GitHub.

Pricing Model

This integration is a Brightcove Open Source project, available free of charge to the Brightcove community. Yes FREE!!!

    Wow, this is cool. I wish you’d written this 3 months ago. We definitely could have used it on our project that is currently ramping down.

    We make lots of catalogs. We use the full CS5 suite currently, and are considering purchasing CQ5 as the repository for the assets and then to move on to the web content management. Some thoughts and questions on how CQ5 might support a print production flow?

      Hi Angela
      Adobe CQ & Creative Suite work extremely well together! You can store and manage all your digital assets in the CQ5 DAM, then access them directly from the Creative Suite apps, but managed with version control, checkin / check out, workflow and more! In your case CQ5 will make it easy to manage all of your catalogue assets for use in both print & web, and using the new InDesign integration can keep track of what images are used where.. great stuff!

    We are using BrightCove Video in our AEM project.
    When we try to drag and drop the BrightCove Component from the side kick,we are not getting the default image.We expect our videos first image would be default image/thumbnail.Is this valid scenario?
