the past: embedded media field, imagefield, filefield – eh, pretty good. (what is the name of that module we’re using for handling flash, esp audio? SWFTools)
PHP stream wrappers? public:// private:// temporary:// – interesting. I had no idea.
dynamic image modification now in core, along with file and image fields.
adding fields to files.
read-only stream wrappers – ie, youtube. is that the sort of thing I’m looking for?
Palantir getting involved, notable client American Public Media. (would imagine they have similar use cases?)
philosophy: reuse/reduce/recycle – rather than writing custom stuff.
two branches: one stable, the other with shiny new stuff
I’m wondering: what does awesome look like?
looking at module page: “Flexible display filters for image manipulation, audio & video players and more.” – that’s what I’m looking for. Excellent, now I have the right option for one of my “try alts” entries in my spreadsheet.
needs moar screenshots.
making a commitment to maintain this module. “if I choose this module, what kind of future does it have?” indeed.
want to make sure, though, that other people can get involved, that it’s not just this one company’s project.
media core initiative?
free ticket to drupalcon denver for volunteering on sprint?!
oh yay demo!
select media button – modal window does look like wordpress. “view library” is actually a View. could use View pager infinite scroll (?) plugin.
looks like the process is still getting ironed out, altho apparently there’s a default view that ships enabled.
guy in the audience is using 2.x – “I like spicy foods” – and it works really well for him.
wysiwyg integration – “kinda needs a lot of work”
what about other submodules staying in sync with 2.x (ie, youtube, vimeo, etc)? relying on maintainers of those modules. still not stable, so not actually recommending those integrated submodules. “oembed”
audio player? not much lives in media right now. ok, so maybe not so much. he recommends “media element” module: http://drupal.org/project/mediaelement html5, even!
but I do like how
can you replace the image and keep the fields? media replace module – works with media 1.x – something they want to consider putting into the main module.
