Media Hub Meta Data Descriptions

Postby mmesarch1 » Thu Oct 14, 2010 11:38 am

HI,
Could there be a set of descriptions developed for what each of the metadata fields are used for in MediaHub. Like what is the difference between "Author" and "Credit." If we could get a best practice set of definitions I would be willing to try to add it to the WIKI.

Then how are all these datafields used?

Is there a widget that could be developed that would pull all the video for specific category that could be place on our webpages?

The meta data for a piece of media goes directly into the rss feeds. With the rss feed, we're serving three-to-four audiences with one channel.

Here's the basic info for the RSS fields:

Next, iTunes has its own set of fields:

Next, there's the Media-RSS fields:

Boxee uses some additional fields, which we haven't fully taken advantage of yet.

In my opinion, the best place for all the details would be as help text for the form fields, instead of a wiki page. The project is in gforge, and this is the file that needs the additions: http://gforge.unl.edu/gf/project/unl_me ... iew=markup
