The ideal candidate has extensive experience with Kaltura CE v5. What I need you to do is extend the Kaltura All-in-one Video Plugin for Wordpress OR create a new plugin that will get the job done.
That plugin is severely outdated and dependent on outdated libraries. It still works out of the box, but we have been unsuccessful in our attents to customize it with the functionality required by the project.
We are developing a social video contest site based on Buddypress. Users upload their video content for contest entry submission. There are to separate EC2 severs, one for Buddypress and one for Kaltura which are communicating with each other.
We have tested the All-in-one plugin and it is working which means that communication between the two servers is as expected.
We want to create a front end form that authenticated users can use to upload their video content without having to send them to the Wordpress backend. The form will contain a few additional fields, the contents of which needs to be passed to the kaltura server and the end result is that Wordpress creates a new post of a custom post type (Video Entry) which, once published, will display the video in a custom video skin (the skin is already set up and working with the AiO Plugin), show the user who uploaded it as the author with a link to their BuddyPress profile, and display additional data that was entered in the form.
Your only task will be to get that form working.
Please provide a quote for the above. Upon completion of the basic functionality described above, we will convert the job to an hourly rate if your rate is reasonable, or create a new job for the development of additional features.
I need this done last week, so if you are able to start immediately and work on this this weekend, let's talk.
Please only apply to this job if you KNOW Kaltura and Buddypress and are 100% confident that you can complete the job within two days. Also NO middlemen. No agencies. Direct communication with the contractor through Skype is essential.
