collective.mediaelementjs 0.3

A simple integration of the MediaElementJS video player for Plone.

Latest Version: 0.4.2

An integration of the MediaElementJS_ audio and video player
for Plone.

Large portions of this package have been blatantly copied from the
`collective.flowplayer`_ product by Martin Aspeli.

What it does

Once installed, supported media files uploaded to the Plone site will
automatically use a view that renders them with the MediaElementJS

MediaElementJS uses ``<video>`` and ``<audio>`` tags on modern
browsers. If the browser doesn't support HTML5 media element tags, or
can not render the media natively, a Flash players that mimics the
`MediaElement API`_ is used. See the `MediaElementJS browser and
device support chart`_ for details.

The recognized formats at the moment are:

MP3, Ogg, MPEG-4, WAV, Windows Media Audio, WebM

MPEG-4, Ogg, WebM, Flash Video, Windows Media Video, MPEG and QuickTime (``.mov`` and ``.qt``)
