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.

Work achieved

Start point

A first version, not complete for giss purposes, has been published in catalan for the internal canal of hangar : Video Canal Hangar

Another one has been installed on giss.tv : Video Data Base Giss Tv

It has the following features :

  • supports ogg/theora and flash formats
  • is skinable for each user :

see Chevil Canal for the creation of a user channel.

  • upload and conversion of video files

Second phase of development ( achieved 25/09/2008 )

Here, in the HBCSE center in Mumbai, we concentrated on developping the second phase :

  • documentation and installation instructions
  • traduction in other languages
  • search engines
  • and last but not least, adding RSS support

that adds distributed capability to the publishing system, see on Giss dmmdb an example of friend channels ( from artefacte.org ).

Release of an alpha release : 0.0.1-rc0

a preliminary version has been published here : dmmdb-0.0.1-rc1

you can read installation instructions here : INSTALL

To do in next release

It still lacks :

  • support for audio archives (sevy)

a playlist option will be added later, it is out of the scope of this development plan.
