Here is a link to video of a session at the Community Media Drupal Summit http://vimeo.com/40106985
The D7 Community Media project, http://groups.drupal.org/community-media, (previously Open Media Project in D6, http://groups.drupal.org/open-media-project) is an end-to-end suite of modules for managing Public Access TV station assets relevant to producers: shows, airings, scheduling, video media assets, transcoding, playback server integration, media archiving, producer projects, physical and studio inventories, and continuing education classes.Read more
The Open Media Foundation seeks an experienced web developer with a commitment to using their skills to make the world a better place. This "Developer" position will serve a wide range of nonprofit clients with Drupal websites, including custom module development and implementation of existing Drupal tools. The primary "client" to be served by this position will be OMF's own Public Access TV station, Denver Open Media, updating and improving the suite of Drupal tools that power Denver's unique user-driven community TV stations.Read more
As part of the effort to refine the useful documentation for non-developers I am trying to expand kreynen's 12 step program for an OMP install. I was tempted to post this as a wiki - but it is very rough, incomplete working path at a public access TV station that just has two staff. For those who have gone through the process or my be farther along - please feel free to comment and provide any feedback. What's missing - really help us break it down. We're moving slow and steady here. - Jason
This morning I noticed that my site when accessed through http was slow to crawl. Couldn't get in or do anything.
When I finally got in and took a look at the Drupal Reports there was an Error related to the refactored feed from our Telvue:
Message simplexml_load_file(): http://18.104.22.168:3000/thu in /var/www/dev.eastoncat.org/sites/all/modules/om_airing/modules/om_airing_feed/om_airing_feed.module on line 59.
We must have hundreds and hundreds of these messages in a very short period of time last night.
Is this slowing my site performance to a crawl?
I just tried to install the OM Broadcast Synchronization module so that I could get a nice looking feed from the Telvue onto our Drupal site. I'm not seeing the permissions for the OM Broadcast Synchronization on the admin side and I don't see the new content types that I am supposed to after the install.
Any though on what I am doing wrong?
I've attached a diagram of channelAustin's Open Media System integration for purposes of sharing how we are integrating Open Media tools with our Synergy Broadcast System. Diagram indicates the three environments - Linux (Ubuntu), Windows, and Mac - and shows the pathways between workstations, encoders, servers, and archive.
The red line indicates a pathway that is incomplete as of this writing.
Portland Community Media, in partnership with Denver Open Media, has created documents explaining the rules of scheduling Producer> Project> Programs. The document includes rules for series programs, scheduled on a quarterly basis, as well as individual programs that get scheduled on a first come, first served basis.
I have also included rules on how PCM schedules filler programs.
The focus of this discussion is:
- to communicate current scheduling rules and guidelines
- to discuss other methods of annual, quarterly or daily scheduling rules used by other media centers
One of the things we've been looking at out here in Portland is effective crewing management and tracking through the Open Media Project. At PCM we follow a policy of "if you don't use it you loose it" where producers need to keep active (at least once a year) in order to keep their certifications up-to-date. We also follow a policy of needing to work on productions before you can start your own.Read more
The installation of the Open Media Project at UPTV is well on its way to success. While we still have technical compatibility issues to smooth out, after working with the staff of DOM and UPTV’s supporters, I know these issues and future ones will be resolved. For a week, I was able to watch the evolving process of creating a flexible, open and user-driven public access system. Even though the installation is just the first step for UPTV, I am excited to be part of the process to make the OM system stronger.
To prepare for DOM’s on-site visit, I would recommend:Read more
