The next generation DukeStream publishing platform is here, and it's called Warpwire. This easy-to-use web based service allows you to upload a video or image from your computer or smart phone (up to 10GB per item) and then share that item - or the whole collection it belongs to - with just about any combination of NetID-based users and groups using simple links and/or embed code. Warpwire now includes a plugin for Sakai that makes publishing media there even more simple, and there are plans to create one for Wordpress as well.
