Video channels and .TVs
Thanks for inviting me to the Video Vortex conference, and especially
the organizers and the other speakers. It was a pleasure to meet you
Some folks asked me for further information on Open Source video
platforms, specifically the components available to build a Joomla
video site. It should be noted that as with any CMS there are
security risks with using Joomla, and perhaps more so than with other
CMSs (Drupal, f.ex), a great deal can be learned by using the
overwhelming developer sites/forums.
First, it is helpful but not necessary to have a basic knowledge of
PHP, mySQL, etc.
The ingredients are: Joomla (the core CMS), Seyret (the video-content
component), and optional, Fireboard (for comments/ a message board
component), Community Builder (for user profiles, memberships, etc).
Community Builder: http://www.joomlapolis.com
I also mentioned a quick and easy way to set up an on-line video site
(through a provider). Channelme.tv has it’s own terms of service that
you should examine before using them to host a .tv domain.
Finally, I want to invite all of you to check out the project I co-
Feel free to sign up for an account, currently users can only add
videos from other servers; I also set up a Video Vortex group on the
site in the Collaborate section, of course if you have any questions,
let me know. I am especially interested in the kind of user agreement
folks would like to see on such a site (a video content site), rather
than conforming to a YouTube-”esque” agreement; we can write (and
rewrite) our own. We are preparing to launch an accompanying on-line
Journal that will replace the current "Articles and Reviews" on the
site; the first issue is on bio-mimetics, and we are still taking
contributions if anyone is interested please e-mail me.
Thanks again to everyone involved in Video Vortex!
