We are happy to announce release of BuddyPress Media 2.1. This is a major release which adds new features:
- Support for add-on creation. You can extend BuddyPress media plugin to use any media platform/
- BuddyPress-Media FFMPEG add-on. A premium add-on to add automatic audio/video conversion support for many popular file formats.
We also released media-node, a FFMPEG-wrapper in node.js in open-source. In case you don’t like our FFMPEG add-on or think its not worth your money, you can use use media-node & buddypress-media platform to create your own plugins!
How it all works together!
Below is image representing how everything is working together.
In next week, we will be releasing a Kaltura module, so users who wish to use a Kaltura server, instead of Media-node can benefit.
We have tested BuddyPress 2.1 on iPhone/iPad devices running iOS6. Image & Video uploads works nicely.
Actually, BuddyPress media has always been standard friendly. It’s just iOS5 and older do not support HTML File Upload field in browser.
