The Media libraries module enables storing of different content files, such as photos, sound, videos, package files, presentation files, etc. This means that not only media files, but also other types of files can be stored in the libraries.
Media library files are stored directly in the file system, organized into folders. Physical path to the root of all libraries within the specified site is <sitename>/media, it is not customizable. Media library belongs either to a specified group or is global for a specified site.
▪ Support for storage of large amount of files (photo galleries)
▪ Support for storage of large files (video files)
▪ Each group of users can have any number of libraries
▪ Files can be uploaded to the libraries externally, e.g. using FTP
There are also several web parts for displaying the files so the users can download or upload the files.
You can install the 4.0RC version and review it on the Community sample site. Also, in the developer's guide placed on you disk (c:\Program Files\KenticoCMS\4.0RC\Documentation\) is the Media library described.
