Add media content to your Kotti site
This is an extension to the Kotti CMS that allows you to add audio and video to your Kotti site.
kotti_media uses MediaElementJS for video and audio views and thus supports native HTML5 playback on all platforms that support this. Each video can have multiple formats (MP4 (.h264 baseline profile), WebM, Ogg/Theora) to achieve this goal. For audio, supported formats include mp3 and wav. For older Platforms MediaElementJS includes a Adobe Flash / MS Silverlight plugin fallback, so that every resopurce can be played on every platform if all supported formats are uploaded.
For Kotti >= 0.7 use the latest release of kotti_media.
For Kotti < 0.7 use the kotti_video < 0.2.
To activate the kotti_media add-on in your Kotti site, you need to add an entry to the kotti.configurators setting in your Paste Deploy config. If you don’t have a kotti.configurators option, add one. The line in your [app:main] section could then look like this:
kotti.configurators = kotti_media.kotti_configure
With this, you’ll be able to add video and audio items in your site. Video and Audio content types are containers, into which you add specific media file types.
Work in progress
kotti_media is considered alpha software, not yet suitable for use in production environments. The current state of the project is in no way feature complete nor API stable. If you really want to use it in your project(s), make sure to pin the exact version in your requirements. Not doing so will likely break your project when future releases become available.
Contributions to kotti_media are highly welcome. Just clone its Github repository and submit your contributions as pull requests.
Note that all development is done on the develop branch and master is reserved for “production-ready state”. Therefore make sure to always base your work on the current state of the develop branch.
kotti_media has 100% test coverage. Please make sure that you add tests for new features and that all tests pass before submitting pull requests. Running the test suite is as easy as running py.test from the source directory (you might need to run python setup.py dev to have all the test requirements installed in your virtualenv).
