Anyone know of any solutions to aggregate videos from a variety of youtube and vimeo sources?  We've tried Miro Community but are looking for something similar.

Hi Jason, What were the issues or missing features that are leading you away from choosing Miro as a solution?

Just some remarks from my supervisor about some back-end problems and the cost associated with re-skinning it to match our visual branding.

OK – this is a real wildcard idea, and it may not fit your needs at all – but if your goal is primarily presentational, you control the YouTube and Vimeo accounts in question, and don't need capability for student or faculty to upload directly to the system, you might consider using a skin-able portfolio system like http://dunked.com/ to present the curated video content.

Hi Jason -- Did you ever find a solution to this video aggro problem? if so, please post and let us know.  Cheers, Dan

Haven't had a chance to dig into dunked yet.  Waiting till things die down after Commencement.  Looks promising from the marketing materials but requires a real account to fully understand it.  Thanks for the tip.

We're sticking with miro for now.  It allows us to integrate video from a variety of other hosted solutions rather than requires our office to take on video upload management for the campus and has a widget for feeds into our webpages

Hi,

You may be able to use Kaltura MediaSpace with the feature of external references.  We will be planning to do this for providing a single portal for internal and external video.

Hi Mark -- I'm interested in getting your perspective on the current state of Kaltura. I worked with integrating it with a Drupal site a few years ago, and felt that the 'community edition' was fairly buggy and unsupported at that time, with the sponsoring company focused mainly on the commercial version. Of course that can all change... how are you finding it now?

We have opted for the SaaS solution as we don't want any of the configuration or support headaches.  So far the solution has been solid for our needs and really is the most flexible platform we could find.  The momentum in bringing up the level of quality and support is good.  I also know that the LMS (and other) integration architecture is getting an overhaul for stability and time-to-market reasons.  This might be a situation where "you get what you pay for".

We'll soon be redesigning our site and will probably be switching to Drupal. I'll be following this thread as we are looking for a video aggregator as well.

Kaltura has solid Drupal integration.

University news sites - best practices - best sites!

Hi all! I am hoping soon to get our University's news site into our new Drupal CMS.  My team wants to bring several news sources into one integrated site.  This includes news, alumnae news, athletic news, the University's magazine SCAN, and our social media channels (probably through the Rebel Mouse app).  Boston University and Mizzou are two that do this really well but I'd appreciate hearing about others.  Please share!See More
