The Media Initiative is an unofficial but well-supported community initiative to improve Drupal's handling of images, video, audio, and other files and embedded media. This previously-recorded webinar discusses the inconsistencies and problems of handling media in Drupal, and the efforts to improve the authoring experience. Products of these efforts so far include the File Entity and Media modules in Drupal 7, which are demonstrated in this webinar. The Media Initiative is also trying to improve Drupal's default file and media handling by moving much of File Entity into Drupal 8 core.
This webinar is useful for anyone wanting to learn more about media handling in Drupal 7 and beyond, including project managers, site builders, developers, and themers. And if you want to get involved with this initiative, you will learn where to get started
