The Media Sprint in late October was amazing! Jody and Maarten hunkered in one corner and bashed out the UI, while Peter and Darrel worked out some of the FileField integration. Meanwhile Arthur whipped out a File Metadata implementation, and I began teasing the existing work out of Drupal 6 and into Drupal 7.
Also in the fray were Jonathan, Forest, Rob, Oleg, and Jen, who participated in varying degrees. Jen also took the opportunity to begin a cool new core theme for Drupal 7, and with Darrel's help took some time to give us a pre-fab image field with core articles! W00T!
The sprint was an amazing success. The module actually works now, as evidenced by Arthur's demonstration screencast. After installing Media, you can actually browse your file system in the administrative screen, with lovely thumbnails representing the file objects. The same action is also available when uploading a new file.
In the past couple of weeks, we've also made strides towards implementing remote streams, with the Media: YouTube module almost ready for unveiling.Read more
