I anticipate the video getting very large and causing bandwidth issues. Is there a way to have the video from the gallery hosted on vimeo instead of locally?
As an example, the vimeography plugin and vimeography upload plugin do something similar to this, but they lack the deep buddypress integration you have.
I agree with you about this. Using vimeo will have another advantage of processing the file for html5 player. We won’t have to worry about various file formats.
I will love to explore this integration for a future addon. I am not sure if this can help you in current project but I am putting high on our list of todos for MediaPress.
PS:- hen are you going live with the site? Or is it live already. Just getting an idea.
That would be amazing.
One thing to consider is ensuring that videos uploaded aren’t visible to vimeo users (there’s a setting for this in vimeo api I believe), as well as the organization structure to use (perhaps separate albums per user?), and how deletion of video will work
Awesome thank you!
I also wanted to share some feedback with you from a member – our legacy photo system was running on rtMedia, and we’re testing MediaPress photo gallery side by side with rtMedia. They said they LOVED the new photo gallery so much more.
Great work! Keep it up!
we did explore the Vimeo API. It is implementable.
At that time, Their membership cost(lowest was $240) so we decided to not work on it. MediaPress does not generate much revenue for us, so we were not in a position to do that.
I have checked again today and I see that there is a Plus membership which can be purchased monthly. That makes it feasible for us to test.
Please check back with us in 2 weeks. We should have this plugin available.
