I need a custom video component for Joomla.
Here are the requirements:
1- the component should display on the frontend a form with video files in date of file order, and few links <<Date>> <<Service>> <<Description>> <<Watch>> and <<Download>>
(a) - video files will have a <<Date>> <<Service>> <<Description>>
(b) - the <<Watch>> button will open a popup video frame where the video will play(stream from site). (Ex. Shadowbox plugin to be integrated as effect for popup)
(c) - the <<Download>> button will download the file to the users pc.
2 - frontend form will display max of 20 files.
3 - backend component will have few functions :
(a) - able to do a scan of the folder where the video files will be uploaded ftp and automatically link new files to the frontend by id.
(b) - able to have a function to archive older videofiles in a separate directory and have a link for archived files on the frontend.
(c) - archived files should display on front end as a separate form with categories per months up to one year.
(d) - folder structure will be created by component for every month per year. ()
(e) - every file will be uploaded as : [url removed, login to view] so the component will pull the ids based per file
4 - everything should be configured from backend as settings.
5 - the forms that will be displayed on front end should be div tags.
Ideas for creating this component will be awarded.
This component should fully integrate with joomla 1.5.x and above.
