his plugin aims to provide a frontend view for video, audio and image medias stored into the DAM, thus the name media library. HOWEVER so far, the media library part has not been developed (!) because we needed first a good video / MP3 player based on the DAM, something which was not existing for Typo3 yet.
The pae_media_library extension currently provides what we consider to be the most advanced media player for Typo3, integrating the now famous JW player in its version 4.6 tightly integrated with the DAM. It is now possible to select and play a FLV video, a youtube video or a MP3 element from the DAM and display it into a page. The extension also allows to load the content of a DAM category into a playlist where items will be selectable within the JW player.
Last but not least, our implementation allows to play streaming media from a remote server while specifying the file meta information inside the DAM. The meta-information is forwarded to the JW player which displays it.
Notice the JW Player is free for non commercial use, but requires paying a licence for commercial use. Read more details at http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flv-player/
The creation of this plugin has been funded by the “Communauté d'Agglomeration du Pays d'Aubagne et de l'Etoile” which is an administrative public group of cities in the south of France. They have been committed with open source and Typo3 for quite some time now. http://www.agglo-paysdaubagne.com/
