Modules that Extend the Media Module

You are viewing a wiki page. You are welcome to join the group and then edit it. Be bold!

This is a list of modules that extend or build on the Media module. This is NOT a list of all modules that have to do with media in a general sense. Those can be found by filtering the Drupal.org module list.

The projects are divided into a few classifications: provider, players, UI, feeds, features, and engines. The logic in these classifications was based on research done for the Derivatives API and the desire to see the code needed to pull in and display media remain separated from the code used to upload and transcode media.

Note that video_embed_field, independently of the media module, can provide a function similar to the D6 "emfield" embedded media field. If you're having trouble with Media, and don't need anything complicated, give it a try.

This is a wiki so if you know of a module that isn't listed, feel free to add it!
