Allows for site staff can upload and edit the media files through the site, and the filesystem is maintained in the background.
- Optional, but used for extracting Metadata:
- IPTCInfo hachoir-core hachoir-metadata hachoir-parser
To start using the app, place it in your INSTALLED_APPS. You may want to edit the settings.py file in the massmedia directory and adjust a few things. If you want to gather metadata, you should install the hachoir lib available at http://hachoir.org/. All in all, you will need the hachoir core,parser, and metadata packages installed.
To customize the app, try editing some of the templates. Media items are templated with the show_media tag using templates based on the media’s mimetype.
