This project is about providing a video playing and uploading facility for Liferay versions 6.1.
With this plugin it is possible to create collections of videos from well-known video portals or to upload videos to a video server of your own.
The video server is just an Apache with a bundle of python scripts to maintain the data. Incoming videos are automatically converted (using ffmpeg) to .mp4 and .webM to provide HTML5 native support for playing in a browser.
The initial code was developed by Gunnar Meyer during his Diploma Thesis.
The videoserver is licensed under LGPL .
