Frequently Asked Questions
- Why "Plumi"?
We spent a lot of time thinking of many different names to use for the software before settling on Plumi. It is a shortening and concatenation of Plone and Lumiere.
- If you are FLOSS, why don't you use OGG/If you are GPL, why do embed proprietary formats?
Plumi does support Ogg. Currently the FOSS implementation of Transcode Star (Flowplayer/ffmpeg) that we are using supports transcoding to Flash and ogg/Theora. We are currently working on implementing HTML5, to use the more open Ogg & WebM formats.
- How much RAM/CPU etc. do I need to run a Plumi site?
This depends on traffic, and number of videos really. Plone sites tend to require reasonable amounts of both, and are not usually suitable to shared hosting environments.
