Yesterday, rtCamp released BuddyPress Media 2.7. This release is one of the most important one in recent times. With this release we start testing the BuddyPress 1.7 waters. Based on our expreience, we are rolling out UI changes that had been pending for a long time.
BuddyPress Media 2.7 now includes an activity media uploader. Users can attach one or many images, videos or audio or a combination of them in their status updates. Now, sharing updates and media happens within the same interface.
Viewing media gets easier with a Facebook style slideshow. This ajax powered feature includes regular media actions like commenting and favouriting within the slide. Browsing media and navigation get simpler with previous/next buttons. You can also navigate with the keyboard previous and next keys.
Support multiple audio/video formats
You can let your users upload media in any format and convert them on the fly to the supported MP3 and MP4 formats. Our BuddyPress-Media FFMPEG addon and BuddyPress-Media Kaltura addon can automatically convert videos and audio from many formats. You can purchase these from our store, today.
