MediaFront Projects deliver a 100% open source multimedia platform that works across most popular CMS as well as in a stand-alone environment. The licensing of the entire project is under the GNU General Product License. Not only is this project open source, and easy to use by anyone (no coding knowledge or complicated module setup required).
It is one of the first media players of its kind to use HTML5; it integrates with the jQuery Themeroller UI allowing for easy CSS based customization. OSM (Open Standards Media) Player is fully customizable and can operate within Drupal as well as a standalone on a static page separates it from any other player available.
The MediaFront project goes further to support a fully Flash based player called the Dash Player (a standalone and Drupal integrated player ).
Mediafront Module for Drupal CMS:
This is a front end media solution for Drupal. The Administration interface allows the website administrator to completely customize the front end media experience for their users without writing any code.
Additionally, it provides an interface to which 3rd party media players can integrate and utilize settings presets to display rich media.
Out-of-the-box, this module provides two media player solutions: Open Standard Media(OSM) Player & minPlayer.
It is a plugin based minimalistic media player that provides “core” media playback functionality for HTML5, YouTube, Vimeo, and Flash.
This is a media player framework that allows tight integration into multiple 3rd party media solutions such as YouTube and Vimeo. It is completely themeable & completely customizable using an Object Oriented plugin mechanism that gives you control over every aspect of playable web media. For well over 6 years, this industry was dominated by the proprietary Adobe Flash Player, which has been used to deliver high quality media to audiences far and wide. With the onset of HTML5, there is a dramatic paradigm shift in the wake for online media content delivery. HTML5 the Open Standard technology is likely to take over Flash.
This player is written in jQuery to dynamically deliver any type of web media, including HTML5, YouTube, Vimeo, and Flash.
