Media Content Type Definition
In order to be able to use the Video plug-in, you need to
add at least one suitably configured media content type to your
content-type resource. For general
information about the
content-type resource and how
to edit it, see the Escenic Content
Engine Resource Reference.
A media content type must either be a video content type or an audio content type (not currently supported), and both of them can either be internal or external:
An internal media content type includes a
linkfield for holding an actual video/audio object (an MPEG or MP3 file, for example). Such content items can therefore hold video/audio content, not just a reference to the content. An internal content item is usually created in Content Studio by uploading the video/audio content that is to be published (although it can also be imported in various ways, just like any other content).
External media content types are not supported in the current version of the Video plug-in.
The Video Plug-in distribution file contains an example
content-type resource file

complete examples of the content type definitions described in the
