 http://lb.cm/acquia-mediamodule ‣ Dis/advantages of using Media ‣ How to pick the right version ‣ Basic configuration concepts ‣ Extending Media

What is Media? ‣ Upload: Provides the ability to upload images, videos, and audio to your site ‣ Manage: A library interface, which allows you to choose from previously uploaded files ‣ Integrate: WYSIYWG and fields can be used to display media-managed assets

Why Media? ‣ Managing reusable content ‣ Consistent interface ‣ Media works with the concepts of entities and files, just like core ‣ Can be extended to use external media ‣ There is excellent community support for Media

Competitors Single-media modules ‣ Image: core ‣ Video: https://drupal.org/project/video ‣ AudioField: https://drupal.org/project/audiofield

Competitors Scald - https://drupal.org/project/scald ‣ Drag-and-drop UI ‣ Does not extend core with entities and files ‣ Has a smaller support base

Which Version? ‣ 1.x ‣ 2.x

(Dis) Advantages of 1.x ‣ Currently the recommended release ‣ Very stable software ‣ No new features, bug fixes only ‣ Does not require any developer-savviness as things should “just work”

(Dis) Advantages of 2.x ‣ Integrates with Views, to give more control of the UI. ‣ Rich ecosystem of supporting modules. ‣ Alpha software: troubleshooting might be required. ‣ Will be ported to Drupal 8 when the time comes.

Configuring Media ‣ Content type fields (core file and image) ‣ File types (image, audio, video, etc.) ‣ Managing display (field, entity, file, image styles)

Content Type Media Fields ‣ Fields • File (core) • Image (core) ‣ Widgets • file or image uploader (core) • Media file selector

File Types ‣ Extends the core File entity ‣ Different kinds of files (image, video, audio, etc.) ‣ Each file type can have fields for meta info ‣ Files have display options (view mode/media format) • can use core image styles for display

Content type: File field with Media file selector widget Image file type: fields for all images (file name, copyright) File: display view modes (preview, large) Core image styles

Extending Media List of modules for Media https://groups.drupal.org/node/168009 ! ‣ External Providers ‣ Players

Extending Media Popular extensions include: ‣ oEmbed - https://drupal.org/project/oembed
 Embed content from 3rd parties (e.g. YouTube, Flickr). ‣ File Lock - https://drupal.org/project/file_lock
 Prevents core from deleting files not attached to nodes (to maintain an asset library).
