Introduction ============ collective.transcode.daemon is an XML-RPC daemon servicing requests for transcoding jobs. It was initially developed during the Plone Video Sprint that took place right after the Plone Conference 2009 in Budapest. It was based on the darksnow.convertdaemon code but has evolved a lot since - https://svn.atreal.net/public/svn.darksnow.org/ConvertDaemon It's currently used for video transcoding in Plumi 3.0 and 3.1 and is a part of the collective.transcode.* suite for Plone 3.x & 4.x. - http://plumi.org - http://pypi.python.org/pypi/collective.transcode.star Requirements ------------ Apart from what is assembled by the buildout, the following dependencies must be installed manually for the transcoding scripts to work: - ffmpeg with x264 support - ffmpeg2theora The daemon has been tested with Python2.4 and Python2.6. Installation ------------ The instructions below are for setting up a standalone transcode daemon. If you want a complete transcoding solution for the Plone CMS use collective.transcode.star The best way to install a standalone daemon is to use zc.buildout and the buildout.cfg file provided :: python2.6 bootstrap.py ./bin/buildout ... ./bin/transcodedaemon fg Initializing Launched http channel Launched TranscodeDaemon scheduler thread.... Configuration ------------- You can edit the following options in buildout.cfg: :: listen_host hostname to listen listen_port port to use videofolder relative path of folder where transcoded videos are stored secret a secret shared key used for authentication and encryption profiles a python list of dicts specifying the supported transcoding profiles Don't forget to run ./bin/buildout after editing buildout.cfg You can also customize the transcoding scripts inside the scripts directory.
