There is a Media Manager Web Service available with which you can create logic to bulk upload items. The CHM file in the page has information on how to upload items to Media Manager. Pay special attention to the Sdl.MediaManager.Service Namespace section and then the IMediaManager2011.GetUploadUrl method description. It has examples on how the upload ...
Alex Klock's website CodedWeapon where we had gotten the original instructions on how to load an external dll for use in Razor shows 2 ways to reference the assembly. The solution to our problem lies in the second method, namely referencing the dll from the GAC:
<razor.mediator extractBinaries="true" adminUser="NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM">
I see three main advantages in using the combination of using SDL Tridion and SDL Media Manager:
Media Manager distributes assets to a CDN out of the box. This gives good reliability if you have a global audience. Tridion does not offer CDN functionality out of the box, although it is of course perfectly possible to architect and build a similar solution by ...
Does the "Everyone" group always have the same identifier (e.g. tcm:0-1-65568)?
Yes, this is the default id assigned during Tridion installation
How else would you find the Everyone ID (CME or code if you prefer)?
You can query the Tridion_cm database in the TRUSTEES table (this will always be id=1)
I understand this is a setting that's not visible in ...
No you don't have to use the Media Manager ECL Stub Schema provided as part of the DXA Media Manager Module, as long as you ensure that the Schema title is exactly the same (it's the default title for MM ECL Stub Schemas, assuming that the ID of your ECL Mount Point for Media Manager is mm).
As of DXA 1.5, there are a few additional metadata fields defined ...
Actually, this is a cache issue. Tridion by default stores all thumbnails in separate folder.
We contacted SDL support for same issue and this is what we got as a response:
Therefore if the thumbnails take a very long time, or do not get
generated at all on your CME, I would suggest the following steps:
Go to Tridion\web\WebUI\WebRoot\...
One would indeed expect the ordering to be (alphabetical) similar to that of the CME, but as @Marko mentions, the order is coming from the external system. That is basically how ECL works.
In an ECL connector, you implement the IContentLibraryContext interface, and there you will have to implement the GetFolderContent(IEclUri parentFolderUri, int pageIndex, ...
Media Manager currently only supports the management of videos in standard aspect ratios; 4:3 and 16:9. It will convert uploaded files to the nearest match (see docs), which is why you are seeing your video as landscape. I think they are working on this for future releases, but the only current option is to ask SDL DevOps to upload your non-standard files ...
You can only see HTML5 distributions in the SDL Media Manager mountpoint.
To publish from Media Manager to YouTube there is a specific YouTube channel where you need to add the assets too.
So if these assets are also in an HTML5 distribution, you can see (and use) these in SDL Tridion (you must have a Resolve ECL TBB which resolves the distribution to the ...
It should be possible to make it faster, but it all depends on implementation.
Notice ECL supports two ways of publishing. One is as you mention here - the image stays in the DAM, or is published by the DAM. But it does also support publishing the images through Tridion - and this would most likely be considerable slower than what you have now.
When you ...
I have updated the following article. It now contains an extract of the App.config file containing the bindings and endpoint information.
Configure your App.config file with the URL to your Secure Token Service and you should be able to connect to SDL Media Manager using the provided helper class.
var mediaManagerClient = MediaManagerHelper....
If it was running before and not anymore now, and you didn't change anything in the configuration just before it stopped working, then the configuration is fine.
My guess is something happened to the ability of the CMS connecting to the service end point address. Which could be several things:
connection issues somewhere between the CMS and the service
It supports thumbnails, so it is probably a configuration issue. I would contact SDL support to find out if the service end is configured correctly, as there isn't any settings on the Tridion side for this.
The Distribution URL supports a query string parameter, "sl", which specifies what subtitles to show (presumably if available). See the Online Documentation
This value could be held in Publication Metadata or other configuration and appended onto the Distribution URL as appropriate by templating.
This could also work for Voice-overs and Backslides.
You can't change the aspect ratio once you've uploaded it into Media Manager. The outlet doesn't offer you an option to change aspect ratio, either.
It is possible using some CSS to "fake" an aspect ratio, though. I've outlined some of those techniques here: http://blog.frankmtaylor.com/2015/05/04/sdl-media-manager-is-now-responsive/ and also here: http://...
If for whatever reason you want to "resolve" a Media Manager distribution URL, i.e. you want to get the redirected URL, you can achieve this with the following code snippet:
var distributionUrl = "http://blah/blah";
var request = (System.Net.HttpWebRequest)System.Net.HttpWebRequest.Create(distributionUrl);
request.AllowAutoRedirect = true;
var response = ...
When in the CM, you can use the ECL API to check the IContentLibraryMultimediaItem.DisplayTypeId, this will tell you if the item is actually an image or a video (or audio, or download item).
For DXA we are planning to add full support of Media Manager items in the upcoming version 1.2, which means we will add full ECL support in DD4T as part of that process....
i recently wrote a blog post about how to do this, you can find it here : http://www.tridiondeveloper.com/adding-content-to-the-side-panel-navigation-using-anguilla-framework
I did try the info provided in your links but i couldn't get it to work, i also noticed that that the 'targeting' link is also included using the method described in my blog post.
Definitely the publishing of the pages will be much faster, as you are not publishing the binaries with the page.
As introducing a DAM is a change in the architecture, one thing you could evaluate is publish the binaries separately and do not force the republishing of binaries when publish the page.
You can still ensure the binaries are updated in the ...
This external metadata is not added by default.
You have the following options
you can define a normal metadata field in your External content stub schema, and add some event system logic to copy the necessary fields from external metadata to your regular metadata fields. This is explained by Bart Koopman in the following blog : http://www.tridiondeveloper....
ECL will only give you the first distribution link. It is an internal implementation detail of MM that this link is resolved into the cdn link - something we do not want to expose through ECL (and the connector to Media Manager) as this would mean any change to the implementation of MM would require a new connector to be released and installed.
There is ...
Neetesh, please try connecting to SDL Media Manager using the Helper class provided here: http://philipmedcraft.blogspot.com.br/2017/03/connecting-to-sdl-media-manager.html
var mediaManagerClient = MediaManagerHelper.GetMediaManagerClient();
IEnumerable<ItemData> accountlist = mediaManager2011Client.GetRootList(GetListResultLevel.Minimal);
My goal was to move the Connector installation to the 100 Master level.
I tried deleting stubs and schema , editing the ExternalContentLibrary.xml stubs folder to point at 100 level to run the connector repair.
Repair failed so I had to go for the full re install.
Backup ExternalContentLibrary.xml and TridionSTS.xml as you settings
will be lost.
Replying to your edited question. SVGs are not supported by Media Manger, but that doesn't stop you from using them on your website.
You should be able to add them as multimedia Components into Tridion. You will have to add the extension/MIME type. See Adding Multimedia Types.
