Bach Educational Resource

The bacheducationalresource is a multi‐language educational multimedia resource utilising the Wowza media server and Flowplayer video player. This was an exciting and successful project that now has over 1500 members. Ensuring that all browsers and bandwidth speeds were supported was a significant challenge for this project and was achieved by: using Ffmpeg as the encoder; three different quality encodings; and live stream switching.

Version 1

was designed for members‐only with some pre‐sign up sampling.  It was developed around the Codeigniter 2 Framework.

Version 2

was open access using geo-tagging to monitor where visitors were coming from and popular languages.  It was written in CakePHP to take advantage of the CRUD and ACL libraries.
