We had an extremely productive time at this year’s Plone video sprint. Over the 2 days we had 12 people who participated at one level or another.
A number of projects were either begun or moved forward considerably. These include
- a 0.1 alpha release of collective.piwik.flowplayer which enables stats on video plays and downloads
- a 0.1 alpha release of collective.piwik.now which allows users to see who else is on the site
- the development of collective.seed which adds torrent download support for plone content
- updating of transcoding profiles for transcode.star
- an initial assessment of Plumi 3 migration to Plone 4, including migration to the new Sunburst theme
- research in the best html5 video player support in Plone and the various browsers
- updating of the video-feature-set listing that details the desired elements for full video functionality
- initial development to expand republisher to enabling publishing of videos from a Plone site to Facebook
We hope to continue this and other work over the coming months. If you are interested in joining us please sign up at the project page.
Thanks to the Open Society Institute for sponsoring the sprint.
