Context And Goals

This tasks aims at publishing a multimedia database system that would enable each content provider to share his media archive with other G.I.S.S. participants. This media database should be available as a GPL package for most common systems ( debian, ubuntu, ... ) and easy to install on any G.I.S.S. user server.

G.I.S.S. will not provide hosting space, but the package and instructions to set up your own database easily and to connect it to other multi-media archives.

Features

  • supports ogg/theora, webm formats ( configurable )
  • supports HTML5 <video> and <audio> tags
  • is skinable for each user :

see PCPtv for the creation of a user channel.

  • upload and automatic conversion of video files to Ogg/Theora

and of audio files to Ogg/Vorbis ( or Webm/VP8 and Webm/Vorbis respectively )

  • voting system ( favorites )
  • annotation/subtitles facility ( accepting HTML code )
  • support for playlists
