A new African video-based website using Plumi software and other Plone customisations claims to be “the first Television online for Africa and its diaspora”. The Africa on TV site is still under construction but already lists many videos hosted externally on YouTube. Content focuses on cultural material, including video of well-known musicians such as Youssou N’Dour, Salif Keita and Oumou Sangare.
Japanese labor organisation LaborNet have implemented Plumi to run UnionTube, a video sharing site focussed on Japanese worker’s issues. The site invites union members and others to contribute their clips to the site. If you have a look you’ll see Plumi adapts pretty well to running in Japanese with the help of Plone’s great language support, though there is still some work to be done.
