Overview

Adding and handling multimedia in Drupal requires use of many contributed modules; deciding which to use and how to get the most from them is often not straightforward. This book provides information for administrators and professional site developers who need to embed media in a Drupal site. Readers need basic knowledge of Drupal operation, but no experience of how Drupal handles multimedia items is needed. The book will guide you through the steps to add image, video, audio, and Flash elements to Drupal sites, taking you through the contributed modules for handling media, showing you what they do, when to use them, and how to get the most from them. When contributed modules aren't enough, you will see examples of custom development to add that special touch. Each topic starts with simple techniques and moves on to more advanced techniques. After completing this book you will be ready to tackle most multimedia needs, with enough understanding to creatively solve more complex problems.

Meet the Author

Aaron Winborn has been developing websites since the mid-90s. Beginning as a freelancer while teaching at a Sudbury school (a democratic and age-mixed model for young people), his clients demanded more and more features, until he (like everyone and their grandmother) realized he had built a full-featured content management system that required more work to develop and maintain than he was able in his spare time. He realized at some point that somewhere in the world of Open Source, someone had to have created and released something to the community. Of course, the wonderful news was Drupal. After converting the existing sites of his clients to Drupal, he continued learning and began to contribute back to the community. About this time, Advomatic, a company with similar interests and a commitment to the Drupal community, began expanding beyond the initial partners who formed it in the wake of Howard Dean's presidential campaign of 2004. Aaron realized that his own goals of creating great sites with a team would be better matched there, and he was hired as their first employee. Since that time, he has helped to develop some excellent sites, with clients such as Air America Radio, TPM Cafe, NRDC, Greenopia, Mountain News, Viacom, and Bioneers. He has also contributed several modules to Drupal, mostly stemming from his work with multimedia, including Embedded Media Field (for third-party Video, Audio, and Images), Views Slideshow (to create slide shows out of any content), and the RPG module (for online gaming, still in progress).
