Recipe to setup a transcode daemon

Project description

Introduction
============
buildout recipe for collective.transcode.daemon


Installation
------------

You can find a sample buildout here:
https://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/collective.transcode.buildout/trunk/

The transcoding scripts provided with the above buildout require ffmpeg and
ffmpeg2theora.


$ svn co
https://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/collective.transcode.buildout/trunk
transcode.buildout
$ cd transcode.buildout
$ python bootstrap.py
$ ./bin/buildout -v
$ ./bin/transcodedaemon fg
Initializing
...

Supported options
-----------------

The recipe supports the following options:

listen_host
hostname to listen
listen_port
port to use
videofolder
relative path of folder where transcoded videos are stored
profiles
a python list of dicts specifying the supported transcoded profiles. The dict
should contain the id of the profile, the command to be executed with the first
parameter to be the input and the second the output file, and the list of
supported mime types for this profile
e.g. profiles = [ {'id':'low', 'cmd':'scripts/lowQualityTranscode %s %s',
'supported_mime_types': ['video/mpeg', 'video/3gpp'] } ]



Usage
-----

For the moment the only way to see collective.transcode.daemon in full action is
to use Plumi 3.0:
http://plone.org/products/plumi or
http://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/plumi.buildout/

We are now working on a generic Plone integration component for
collective.transcode.daemon. Note however that there is nothing Plone specific
in c.t.d. It shouldn't be hard to integrate it in any other content management
framework.
