The Codem Scheduler is part of the Codem open source video transcoder platform. This application manages the scheduling and handling of jobs via a webfrontend and an API.
For documentation and general info, see http://transcodem.com/
You'll need a Ruby on Rails installation, served by the webserver of your choice. Please note: Ruby 1.9.3 or greater is required, Ruby 2.0 is preferred. See http://rubyonrails.org/download for installation instructions.
