Live Blogging from DrupalCon Chicago: Media in Drupal 7

Presenter: Jacob Singh

  • Drupal 7 offers the new Media module, which replaces all the different media modules from before
  • Media attempts to be a "file browser to the Internet". Modules can plugin to the Media module (e.g. YouTube, Flickr etc.)
  • Main advantage of Media is that the interface and API is consistent
  • Media has security advantages that allows anyone to embed images and video that circumvents the issues of malicious tags in media files
  • The Media (module) attempts to be the default file-management tool in Drupal 8
