As mentioned already, your requirements match exactly what the Media Manager Connector is designed to do. I do not know what the "Stub schema component" you refer to is. Basically MMC will create stub components (one for each distribution you for example link to), and a single schema that will be used by the stub components. It's not clear to me what you ...

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"> <namespaces&...

This is probably the wrong place to ask about core SDL Media Manager features. Assuming you are referring to a Tridion integration with SDL Media Manager Connector (since this is the Tridion stackexchange site) and if SDL Media Manager can't do what you need it would technically be possible to do the following: Write a custom TBB that uses the Media ...

The Media Manager Connector communicates to Media Manager through a web service. It only uses HTTP port 80. All connections are to the VMS host, i.e. [vms name].sdlmedia.com.

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 ...

There is a hotfix for this issue for MMC 1.3 that you can request from CS. The fix for this issue is already included in latest Media Manager Connector 1.4 release.

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 ...

ECL, which is what is used for the Media Manager Connector, currently does not have a separate Schema for each sub-type. Which means that you can only create a link (by using the ECL stub Schema) to all of the items that your ECL provider contains. The ECL stub Schema is created in the stub folder you set under the StubFolder element in your ...

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\...

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 ...

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, ...

As far as I understand it, Media Manager is only provided as a SAAS solution, so the assets are not hosted on your server, and you do not have any control over how they are provisioned (via CDN etc.). Therefore I dont think you have control over what CDN to use, unless you want to build something like Lars says to pull the assets from Media manager, and ...

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 ...

In Tridion 2013 you need to add Media Manager as an allowed MM Schema in the content schema's link field. Have you done that? I don't have a 2011 system with Media Manager installed to test with, so not sure if it is the same.

Was it running previously, or is this the first time you try to use it? Typically it's certificates giving problems, so triple check that it's the correct ones that are configured, and access rights and trust are correct. If you can't find an error in the client side certificates, contact SDL support - they can most likely see the error in the log files ...

It is live when it is created in MM. Publish/Unpublish has no effect on the distribution in Media Manager.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.


5

Media Manager connector shipped with a "cumulative hotfix" that is needed on Tridion 2011SP1. I do not remember the exact number of this hotfix, but I think it was included with the install files for the Media Manager Connector. If not you can get it from SDL support.

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://...

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.

No.. only jpg/gif/png/tif/bmp, as per documentation link below https://docs.sdl.com/LiveContent/content/en-US/SDLMediaManager212-v5/GUID-CF1C8C0E-41BF-4A8C-B185-3196DDA2B06C

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 ...

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 = ...

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....
