The two tutorials posted today were the last ones on the CMS in ProdigyView. As the title suggests, the focus was on audio and video content management. Similar to file and image content management, files can be placed directly into the CMS. How they differ from image and file content is the conversion and saving of multiple formats.
The audio and video and content was designed to work with HTML5. But that poses a problem because not every format works with the HTML5 audio/video tags This means you at least need three formats. For instance, for video you need mp4, ogv, and webm to cover majority of browsers. Instead of making a row in the database to store each format of the same video, it would be easier to place them all in one. After all, its the same video. Long story short, the user places an audio/video into the cms and the cms will use ProdigyView’s audio/video conversion tools to automatically convert a video to different formats. Easy and useful feature.
On the side note, Day 55 thats only 5 days left. But its going to be a long and hard 5 days. I should be releasing two tutorials everyday from here on until the 60th day, maybe sometimes three. The tough part is I’m mentally fatiguing at this point. I’ve seemed to have lost sight why I am doing it which can make it difficult to continue at times. But I hate to give up.
Just stopping and walking away would be the easy way out. If I did would anyone care? Would the impact be felt? Would it cause some starving kid in a 3rd world country to die?Probably not. But beyond how it looks from everyone else’s perspective, they turn off their computers or close their browsers and the only person still stuck with me is me. I’ve quit before on things, and it doesn’t feel good. And if I just walk way I will never know what the outcome was: for better or for worst. So the correct path seems to be just to keep going forward and let come what may. Maybe that was too personal of a post….
Anyway, tomorrow I will be putting out ProdigyView 1.5.3 . Get ready for some MongoDB updates, some really cool image manipulation updates, authorization and other tweaks. I think the most exciting thing will be the changes to the PVImage class. We will be getting into things like created animated GIFs. But for today’s tutorials.
