Last weekend I saw a demonstration of this cool application at the ShareCamp 2012 in Munich: 365Tube – a cloud-transition of the MOSS2007 podcast kit (PKS). It’s a Codeplex project so you can download the whole source code!
Using the code and instructions everyone can setup a private youtube-like video library, e.g. for enterprise-2.0 - in a few hours, completely built on cloud components. It also demonstrates how application design has changed from code-centric (in original pks) to service-centric cloud-modules, scaling from a handful of users up to 10.000s.
O365 subscribers who wonder how the SP online part can be used (better) or how applications should be build on SP online
O365 propects wondering whether or not to take the SP online module - and what kind of business impacts they can expect if they do
All users looking for an up-to-date replacement of the original PKS
The first version of this PoC is a WSP file and a documentation how to set it up on Office 365. For high scalability and storage considerations Office 365 service was extended with the video transcoding service Transloadit.com and the cloud storage Amazon S3.
This example shows how easily such a scenario can be build - and modules can be substituted by similar ones, e.g. replace transloadit/S3 by recently announced Azure Media Services.
I have recorded the whole session for the SharePointPodcast which will be online later this week. The session was in German.
