Video Players

Depositors can upload video documents. Since EPrints 3.3, there is a lightbox/flowplayer in EPrints, under /lib/static/.

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?

   /opt/eprints3/lib/syscfg.d/executables.pl

Should contain a path to ffmpeg and ffprobe. ffmpeg should be installed on the server.

Video Codecs

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

Video Document Integration

Should the video player be integrated as a document "preview" or as a part of the eprint_render?
