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 feature cames directly from collective.flowplayer.


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

Support for remote video services

The Video link content type handle URL not only to .flv or other compatible flowplayer resource, but also to 3rd party video services.

Right now URL to those services are handled:

You are invited to help us extending also to other services.
