Overview

The Video Solution Pack takes a video file, and ingests it into your Fedora repository. On ingest, the video file is converted to an MKV (archival format) using FFMPEG. Two derivative formats are also created: MP4 (using FFMPEG) and OGG (using FFMPEG2Theora). JW Player is used to display one of the derivative formats (depending on the browser being used).

Please ensure that your video files are in a format supported by FFmpeg and that all required libraries are installed.

Dependencies

Once the module is enabled, the Islandora Video Solution Pack Admin panel will be available under Site Configuration in your Drupal Admin panel. From here, you can view and configure the paths to the relevant binaries.
