Plone 3 Multimedia provides a rich repository of tools and techniques to add full multimedia power to Plone along with collaboration with many external web resources in order to build an interactive Plone site.

Furthermore, it also gives readers an insight into how to upload, store, and serve their multimedia content in an effective way.

Using this book, developers will be able to include photos, movies, audio, and Flash-applications into their Plone site to make it more user-friendly. In addition to learning about the various video and audio formats best suited for web publishing, developers will also be able to get to grips with categorization, syndication, upload, storage, and serving of multimedia content. This book will also enable developers to create an engaging user experience by including powerful Silverlight web and mobile applications into Plone.
