This website realised in short time (3 months) remains a good experience in the field of video on the Web. There remains some regrets for our team, the biggest point being that we did not support the artistic direction of the website, this one being imposed by the client. The result is a design, which for me is not at all 2.0 and all would be more classical, and a non-intuitive navigation.

From a technological point of view, this project is very rewarding with the use of a couple of many languages :

  • PHP5 / MySQL
  • xHTML / CSS / JavaScript
  • XML / XSL
  • Flash
  • Perl
  • Scripts Shell
  • Red5
  • Ffmpeg 

The whole of the application is based on SillySmart :)
