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

Video Players

Is there a video player that is as a part of KULTUR plugin (http://files.eprints.org/773/? In addition to whatever was done in KULTUR, are there other video players that could be integrated into the abstract page display? For example: 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 Icon Preview

How does the video player relate to generating the "Document Preview" in EPrints?
