Nice! I like all these features.

I have never used any DAM extension. Can you give me some arguments why 
this is better than integrating with tt_news?

It would be very nice indeed to integrate ffmpeg as an extension. This 
part of the project also has a much wider interest. Many TYPO3 companies 
have customers who asks for various video options. But there is no 
easy-to-use options available. Maybe the first part of the project could 
be to integrate ffmpeg and to create a new content element named 
"video". Editors would not have to worry about conversion and formats 
but could leave this to ffmpeg. Basically it should be as easy to insert 
a video as it is to insert an image.

If this is the objective it will be easier to get sponsoring since 
almost everybody has an interest in seeing this feature in TYPO3. I will 
be happy to do some fund raising and to drop a coin in the jar myself.

What do you think?

I am interested but I am not a millionaire and I will not be able to 
sponsor months of work, but we are not talking a few euros either. If 
you have a test site then send me a login and I will take a look.

Are you planning on making this a public extension? I would prefer that 
so that more people can contribute.
