Wrapping up the Bristol Plone Video Sprint

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

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.

Wrapping up the Plone Video Sprint

The Plone Video sprint wrapped up last Tuesday after four very intensive and productive days. We got a tonne done.

  • We began a new plone video suite that brings together the base common features most users expect, such as embedded flash, ogg and h264 video, vodcasting, transcoding, large file handling, content licensing support, metadata extraction and much more.
  • a huge amount of work was done on transcoding in particular by EngageMedia and Unweb built on top of Convert Daemon
  • upgrading of the Plumi buildout to the latest stable Plone release, 3.3.1
  • Translation of Plumi and Plone into Indonesian is almost complete
  • We built a solid basis for ongoing collaboration, more video sprints coming hopefully!!

To continue the momentum for the Plone video suite we’ve started a new project on launchpad. Please sign up if you are interested in contributing.
