The problem that sparked the development of Scald is obvious all over the web. But then I realize that I have a video which I want to include in my post.
So I open up YouTube, check to see if the video format that I have my video in is compatible with YouTube, upload my video, copy the embed code, paste it into Blogger and then test my post to see if the video actually embedded properly.
THEN, I can get back to writing my post -- only to realize that the photos I took on the trip would be good to include too, so I open up Flickr As the narrative above highlights, the web currently has "silos" of media which are exposed to the end-user.
Or which codecs YouTube supports. I should be able to just upload my video directly in Blogger, pay no attention to where its being stored and put it in my post. I should just be able to select my video and put it in my blog post -- ideally from right within Blogger. The average user has no concept of the intracacies of "fair use" or "attribution share-alike". What I want to know is "how do I get that video in my blog post? There should be a mechanism which distills the licensing issues down to "can I use it or not?
The related problem of "how do I let other people use my stuff without giving it away" is something that casual content creators may or may not consider. Too many new concepts! In fact, Scald started in , at the same time as Drupal 6. There was very little concept about entities, view modes.
Therefore, Scald used its own terminology for concepts that came in Drupal 7. Each atom type thus can have different attached fields, different view modes and different display settings.
Why "Unified Type"? Because one type e. What make it different is while view modes are about field display settings, in Scald the atom itself an "extra fields" could also have display settings.
In each context read: view mode , an atom can have a different transcoder read: image style and a different player read: display plugin. It is similar to the possibility of having different displays of node title in different view modes - but an atom is much more complex than a node title. Common actions defined in Scald core are: fetch read: load , view, edit, delete.
Modules can defined more actions. Each atom can be configured to open to certain actions. Scald supports a permission system per action so that access control works out of the box with great level of granularity.
For example, a video or an audio transcoded to different bit rates for different display contexts. From that point of view, it is similar to a theme. However, players are pluggable and look more like a display plugin. It could be abusively called "token".
They are in general independent and can be enabled when necessary. Because Scald is modular, you need at least one module in each category to work: - dnd: the bridge between a library and a field, it is responsible for the drag and drop.
