I am wondering whether anyone is wondering on the impementation of the following:
Dutch government policy states that video on government websites should follow de WEB Guidelines regarding accessibility (see http://english.minvws.nl/en/video/ ).
Also, documents and media should use open source and open standards whenever possible ( http://www.noiv.nl).
A full-fledged video player should therefor, in my opinion, have at least the following features:
- HTML5-video compatible (for supported browsers)
- WebM compatible
- fallback to closed format such as Flash + MP4 file/stream with H.264 video and AAC/MP3 audio
- support for subtitles
- download links for video files in multiple formats
- download links for subtitles / transcription (including descriptive texts)
(the Overheids Mediaplayer 0.8 linked from above seems a bit outdated, using Flash embedding and Quicktime embedding but mentions neither HTML5 nor WebM).
I am wondering whether anyone is already working on such an implementation, eg as a Drupal Module. I am aware that MediaMosa is mostly about the backend, so I hope there are MediaMosa users here that would be interested in such a module.
Or maybe someone would be interested in sponsoring such a module.
It might be that the upcoming MediaMosa frontend modules, possibly in combination with the Longtailvideo JWplayer 5.4 would already come close to a solution.
