p4a.video
=========

Overview
--------

The *p4a.video* package provides a framework for handling video content on
the Zope 2 and Zope 3 platforms.  It was inspired by the Plone ATVideo
product and even borrows some UI.

Project Description
-------------------
*p4a.video* allows you to:

* convert a file object to a video
* extract the video metadata
* render an appropriate view (depending on the file format)

Installation
------------
*p4a.video* depends on the following packages:

* p4a.subtyper
* p4a.common
* p4a.z2utils
* p4a.fileimage

* hachoir_parser

If you use buildout, you can have it manage these dependencies by:

* adding these lines to your buildout.cfg file

::

    [buildout]
    ...
    
    eggs = 
        ...
        p4a.video
    
    [instance]
    ...
    
    zcml = 
        ...
        p4a.video

* re-run your buildout
* Install the add-ons from the Add-on Products page in the
  Plone Control Panel
