Video Players

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

Server Settings

The following file should contain a path to ffmpeg and ffprobe:

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

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)? EPrints performs the following tasks when generating "thumbnails" for videos:

  • generate an image thumbnail
  • transcode video to ogg container

Video Document Integration

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