by Anonymous User — April 29, 2010
EngageMedia are very excited to announce the first release of Plumi, a free software video sharing Content Management System. Plumi enables you to create a sophisticated video sharing site out-of-the-box. In a net landscape where almost all video sharing sites keep their distribution platform under lock and key, Plumi is one contribution to creating a truly democratic media. |

Plumi is based on the popular Plone Content Management System and enables a wide array of functionality including:

Future features will include:

  • Automatic creation and seeding of BitTorrent files upon video upload
  • Large video file uploads
  • Mobile phone uploads and downloads
  • Specialised calendar
  • Transmission metadata standard
  • Donations system for contributors and online purchasing
  • Integration with gnutella and other p2p networks
  • Collaborative film production tools

Plumi is the system that currently runs EngageMedia - a video sharing site focussed on social and environmental issues in Southeast Asia, Australia and the Pacific. EngageMedia is an Australian based media/tech activist collective that develops Plumi and runs the site.
