Basic archetype based video content, integrated with collective.flowplayer

Project description


A simple video support for Plone, based on collective.flowplayer.

This add to your Plone portal two new content types:

  • Video file for providing a video content directly from a video file compatible with flowplayer formats

  • Video link for a remote video resource

New content types have mandatory image field, for the video screenshot/splash data. Also you can insert the year of the video and the duration. This last info is also taken automatically from the video (only for internal video).

All other given featured come directly from collective.flowplayer.


This package will give you a new “Video gallery” portlet, similar to the ones you get with collective.flowplayer. The portlet shows image fields content taken from videos.


  • hachoir_core

  • hachoir_metadata

  • hachoir_parser

  • collective.flowplayer


Right now year and duration are not displayed in the video view.
