Video-Bay ownCloud Video App

With the lack of a Video Gallery for ownCloud comes out “Video-Bay” an APP made for ownCloud to showcase and playback user’s videos under a specialized “Navigation Tab” making it easy for users to quickly access and play their videos.

Video-Bay uses JWPlayer as its HTML5/Flash player to playback video files of .mp4, .flv, and more formats, in addition it uses ffmpeg to generate thumbnails for such videos (which must be install in order to see video previews). This APP scans the users collection and looks for files of ‘video’ mime-type then without structure puts this videos in the “Videos Tab”.

Currently this APP can be downloaded from the following sources:

apps.owncloud and github
