Video Project Collaboration CMS

I've had this project in mind for quite some time and finally got time to go ahead and start working on it. The goal is to create a content management system to make it easier for clients to review and comment on their videos, while also making it easy for the administer to upload and create new video projects.

There are already tons of different project collaboration content management systems, but none of are designed to work with video projects. The idea/need for a groupware system that can support videos was very apparent to me ever sense I started working at a local production studio. There is really no super easy way to send videos to clients and keep their comments organized, so I hope this project addresses some of those issues.

Check out first video demonstration of the project at: Preview: New Online Project Collaboration CMS In The Works | Vidlivery

I'm still working on getting this project available to the public, but I hope that this project could benefit from other community members ideas/contributions.

Love to hear what you think.

Do you mean the video is not working on the site anymore? It appears to be working for me, but just in case here is the direct link: YouTube - Online Project Collaboration for Video Editors

I've spent some time and modify/added some new features to the project which can be viewed at Preview #2: New Online Project Collaboration CMS In The Works | Vidlivery

Any thoughts/comments would be beneficial

Thanks.

There's something fishy about your code for IE playback on a PC - have you tested it?
Quite possibly, this:
Code:
<object classid="d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="630" height="419" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0">


<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="630" height="419" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/yaIv-6oYDcE&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed>
</object>
Should look more like this:
Code:
<object classid="d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="630" height="419" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0">
<param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yaIv-6oYDcE&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" />
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="630" height="419" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/yaIv-6oYDcE&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed>
</object>
If I remember the param format.
The point is that when using the combined object/embed code to address different browsers, each snippet must be complete, and your object snippet isn't - there's no video source specified.

What I've written above may not be completely correct - the scriptaccess and fullscreen names may need to be separately stated in a param="flashvars" line, but with the above info you should be able to make more sense of what code youtube is telling you to use.

Hey thanks, I fixed the problem...something went fishy when I enable the WYSIWYG editor for my posting and it modified the embed code. Should work now though.

Thanks.

p.s. IE is evil :)

Yes, it's now showing up on IE7 on a PC. I like the concept, a lot!

There's a product, um, the name is escaping me right now, designed for this application, but also pretty spendy and resource intensive. One *really* cool thing that it does is support annotation linked to time. ***edit: not really as a CMS, the syncVue product supports a one-to-one synchronized review session***

Wouldn't it be great if you had a method to get currentTime out of jwplayer and stamp it into the comments? I think if one were reviewing something longer than a :30 it would be very handy. E.g., "6:37 ; this shot shows our old logo in the background - gotta' fix this or go with another shot" means that all reviewers as well as the video editor/producer can find that shot quick!

Wes, what are you using for screencap on Mac? Is there a good freeware/open source product?

Thanks...

Hey Seth, that's an excellent idea. I'll do some research and hopefully be able to figure something out.

I love to support open source products, but have yet to find a decent open source screen capture app yet. The one I have been using is called "Screenflow", which is by far the best and simplest screen capture utility I've ever used. Telestream ScreenFlow - Overview
