MiddMedia

MiddMedia is a audio/video management system that runs along-side an Adobe Flash Media Server (FMS) or another Flash video server. FMS provides the streaming of the video data while MiddMedia handles user authentication, file management, and the generation of appropriate embed-code.

MiddMedia is not a video browsing and sharing service in the vein of YouTube. To share a video with others you must embed it in a website visible to your intended audience. This website might be a Segue site, a WordPress blog, a MediaWiki wiki, or another site on campus or elsewhere on the internet.

MiddMedia Plugins

Plugins are available for CMS applications that allow them to integrate with MiddMedia. At the simplest, these plugins will convert some shortcode in the CMS to the proper embed code to stream media off of the MiddMedia host. More advanced plugins will provide a browsing interface within the CMS that can allow users ofthe CMS to browse and upload media to MiddMedia directly from within the CMS.

Documentation

MiddMedia includes contextual help for users. Additional documentation can be found online at:
