This page is in development and will eventually contain information about supporting Video documents in EPrints.

Video Players

Currently, there is no video player as a part of EPrints. Some repositories that use the Kultur plugin (http://files.eprints.org/773/) have also integrated a video player into their repositories (for example, (https://flowplayer.org/) , but the video player is not part of the plugin. A suggestion on the list was for one potential video player that could be integrated into EPrints: http://videojs.com/

Server Settings

Are there required settings in Apache to allow it to stream (play/seek rather than download full video)? For example, these:

   # MIME types for Video
   AddType video/mp4 .mp4 .m4v .f4v .f4p
   AddType video/ogg .ogv
   AddType video/webm .webm
   AddType video/flv .flv

Are there other server settings required?

Video Codecs

Are there particular codecs/containers required for the streaming/seeking to work (H264 in MP4 container)?

Video Document Integration

How does the video player relate to generating the "Document Preview" in EPrints? Should the video player be integrated as a document "preview" or as a part of the eprint_render?
