I am interested in extended a current Django run administrative page to include podcasting support. I want to be able to have users upload videos that will be able to stream out. If I have to limit the uploads to a certain filetype, then that will be no problem. I want to be able to have the ability to resize the video, if possible, and to be able to pull out meta data that's embedded into the file, such as artist, title, etc...

I was mainly interested in almost transforming the preexisting PHP version of LoudBlog into Python-Django format for the administrative page.

I have googled for many man hours and I think that PyMedia might be a good way to go at this or maybe even FFmpeg (which PyMedia extends, I believe). I was wondering if anyone has a background or can offer advice/assistance in helping me to achieve this.

PyMedia seems to be showing its age. *Years* ago I reported problems with the latest builds (which don't seem to have changed since then) and got no response. I believe I also reported a source bug that didn't get looked at either.

At any rate, Python has gobject bindings for GStreamer, and I highly recommend checking it out.

If only my topic was replied to at around the time I asked for it, your information might have been useful (nothing against you, Donny Viszneki). We're already switching over to something else, now. But, I will, none-the-less, look into what you said, for future knowledge. Laughing

As all my project involving pymedia dried out I had no time to work things out lately.
GStreamer may be good idea but form my experience GStreamer is a resource hog due to its architecture.
So I would go along with custom command line builds which use mplayer/ffmpeg.

What are "custom command line builds?"

Well, you build C app which encapsulate needed functionality from ffmpeg/mplayer/vlc and make its command line interface easy to reuse.
Then use it from Python the same way as freevo or similar media apps.
