Two of the best features of Adobe CQ5 are a) the extensibility of the architecture, and b) the great user experience for content producers / authors. A great example of the two coming together is the new package for CQ5, which integrates the video streaming platform Ooyala into CQ5.
Adobe & Ooyala partner Siteworx were able to easily create a reusable integration package to allow anyone with both CQ5 and Ooyala to combine the two quite easily.
Once installed, you simply drag and drop a Ooyala video component onto the page, search for the video in the new Ooyala tab in the CQ5 content finder, then drag it onto the video control.
Take a look at the video below for a quick 2 minute demo.
Once you download the package (details below) there is a quick set up needed to link to your account. Just log into Ooyala Backlot, grab your API Key & Secret and enter them into your setup. Thats it!
BTW- Don’t bother trying to copy my API keys, I changed a lot of the numbers and letters before taking the screenshot so it wont work 🙂
Siteworx also provided an Uploader screen so you can upload an asset directly to Ooyala without having to leave CQ5. Nice!!
Download the CQ5/Ooyala Integtraion code from GitHub. Great work SiteWorx!
