We run a non-profit website that carries thousands of user-generated videos. The site uses the liferay Portal CMS version 6.1 (http://www.liferay.com). Currently we link to the raw video files with a flash player front-end but would like to use a HTML5 player (relying on flash only as a fallback).
This player will cue the video content via a rss feed to create a looping 'channel' of all the elements in the RSS feed.
Here is an example feed: http://globalviews.mirocommunity.org/feeds/featured/
The project requires:
- an opensocial/google gadget that carries the HTML5 JW player http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/
- It should include the “share this” and “analytics” JW player add-ons http://www.longtailvideo.com/addons/plugins/110/Sharing?q=share and http://www.longtailvideo.com/addons/plugins/107/Google-Analytics-Pro?q=
- When installed it needs a user interface to add an RSS feed.
- Testing: it needs to be installed and demonstrated working correctly in our live Liferay site. It needs also to work with google's openSocial API.
- We'll use a free github account for the project, and the code for the portlet will be released under GPL with your contact details attached if you like.
- The video player should be configured to play-on-click for the first video in the RSS list, and then auto-play each video in the list thereafter. When the list is exhausted, the player should loop back to the beginning.
