It's worth checking out the blog post about the new Apereo OAE and MediaCore integration that was just published. The integration brings great video support to OAE:

We're excited to announce our seamless integration with the Apereo Open Academic Environment (OAE) – Available now. OAE provides a free-flowing space for collaboration and networking within and between Universities, allowing students, researchers and faculty to create knowledge, share and discuss. It is a multi-tenant and highly scalable platform that is able to support multiple institutions at the same time.

MediaCore is the platform of choice to encode, manage and playback video and audio files in OAE.

Take a tour of the new MediaCore + OAE integration now

Once the connection between MediaCore and OAE is configured, all video assets uploaded to OAE will automatically be sent to MediaCore for encoding – and will be played back in our new HTML5 video player.

MediaCore makes uploading, managing and sharing video and media simple, and we're pleased to be able to bring this simplicity to OAE. When you integrate MediaCore with OAE you can:

  • Easily upload any type of video and audio file, up to 20GB in size, directly to your OAE platform.
  • Rely on fast and high quality video encoding.
  • Play back video in our state-of-the-art HTML5 video player, with Flash fallback.
  • Enjoy seamless playback on all browsers and mobile devices.
