[GMG-Devel] MediaGoblin Instance Media Display Errors

Hi all,

I have set up my server to host a MediaGoblin instance with the
guidelines specified in
http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/stable/siteadmin/deploying.html,
but am experiencing a technical difficulty. I can upload media fine, but
I can not view them afterwards--a broken page item appears where the
media should be. I spoke with ayleph earlier today who explained it may
be due to an improperly set nginx conf file, or an improper file
permissions, among other things. I have attached the conf file for
review, and also made sure that the user_dev file has chmod 750 with the
mediagoblin user. Are there any other files that I should check for?

The only error that appears in my console is the following:
(From SQlAlchemy) SAWarning: Unicode type received non-unicode bind
param value

A check online gave me mixed results, with many people thinking that it
was unimportant.

Regardless, I would love to get this figured out so I can work closely
with a MediaGoblin instance while I work on Goblinoid.

Let me know if there is any other information that you would like me to
provide.

Best,
Dylan

[GMG-Devel] Goblinoid 0.1 Release!

Hi all,

I am happy to announce Goblinoid's initial public release. Major
features include:
   - View recent activity
   - View and add comments
   - Upload media
   - View followers, followees and their recent activity

For this release I am most interested in hearing how the installation
process goes for goblinoid on the computer and Android devices. Detailed
installation instructions are located in the README (see attached)

Since the app was designed to work on a range of different webfingers, I
am also interested to hear about your experiences with mediagoblin's and
other pump.io webfingers.

Soon I will include a release notes file in the master branch
highlighting current features, known bugs, and plans for upcoming releases.

I will maintain a weekly release schedule, so be sure to let me know of
any issues, and I will try to get them fixed for the subsequent release.

Please let me know if there is anything else you guys would like to know!

Best,
Dylan

[GMG-Devel] [PATCH] Prevent browsers sending referrer headers

Hi MediaGoblin community,

I've got a one-line patch for MediaGoblin but I see that you're having
issues with spam on Trac, maybe discussing here is easier?

This change prevents browsers sending Referrer headers from MediaGoblin.
It fixes the scenario where a user clicks an external link in a
description field or comment, resulting in their browser revealing their
MediaGoblin instance and media URL to that site.

I think this is a safer default because users might not expect to reveal
their private MediaGoblin instance simply by following a link. (For
public instances users might not be concerned either way.)

The meta tag used here is part of the upcoming Referrer Policy spec[1]
and already works in Firefox and Chrome.

Thanks for working on MediaGoblin!

Duncan

[GMG-Devel] MediaGoblin Install

Hi everyone,

I am trying a more complicated install of MediaGoblin and would like
some advice. I recently set up a server which is running a few VMs; one
of them will run MediaGoblin with a few other web applications. I only
made the VM image (let's call it hda) 10GB, with the idea to mount an
external drive (let's call this hdb) to hold all the media. I have
configured postgresql on hda, and created the unpriviledged mediagoblin
user. Now, should I create the MediaGoblin directory in hda or hdb? If I
were to create it in hda, would I be able to symlink the hdb directory
inside the user_dev folder?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Best,
Dylan

[GMG-Devel] Bug in media types extension parsing

As requested on IRC because bug tracker registration is disabled:

media_types/__init__.py:109:
    if filename.find('.') > 0:
should be:
    if filename.find('.') >= 0:

Because otherwise files of the form "./blah.mp4" don't work, which happens with the localfiles plugin.

Ditto for line 87.

Cheers,
Michael

[GMG-Devel] MediaGoblin, missing features?

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the good work on MG, we'd like to use the software for our
organization, and I'm in charge of the installation and deployment.

Before installing MG, there is a couple of features that we need and
that I can’t find on the documentation

- Media trans-coding at import, for what I saw with the `video` plugin
is that video are transcoded to WebM, what we want is to auto trans-code
videos to a multiple format at once (WebM, ogv-Theora, and maybe a
couple of others). Same with the audio files.

- Possibility to embed the player in a web page (same as youtube
'share-embed' code block)

Could you tell me if, those features are included in MG and I just miss
them. If not, how could I contribute to MG to include them?

Thanks for your answer,
af.
