Hi Morten,

>> we implemented a video community with video upload and video conversion 
>> from almost any video formats to flv (it is based on a remote conversion 
>> service called via REST). Videos can be commented and rated (based on 
>> comments and rating extensions).
> Sounds great! Is this project live and can we see it?

it was live... It was a contest that finished a few months ago and now 
the site has been removed. Sorry :-(

>> The implementation is based on a new DAM-based extension that we are 
>> going to release the next week (I hope). 
> One question: How do you categorize and distribute the videos in an

While uploading a new video it was possibile to select a category 
(funny, people, ecc.) that is based on DAM categories. It was also 
possible to order videos based on upload time, rating, comments number, 
number of views and (obviously) title.

Yes, the solution could support both systems. It would be very nice to 
integrate ffmpeg as an extension that can be installed if needed (also 
the remote conversion service has been integrated as an extension).

If you are interested in this project and/or in sponsoring this 
development we can provide you a demo site where you can take a look to 
the extension.
