I have added to the search bar functionality on Miro - ie added EngageMedia and (see the screenshot - )

To add to this search bar you need to construct a simple XML file describing how to get the search result as RSS2 with enclosures (see below)

Two problems to get this to really work ;)

  1. For video downloading to work properly in Miro , the search RSS neeed

to have working enclosures - something which isnt present in the 'out of the box' Plone - so the for instance, the EM example below gets results

  • but cant see the thumbnails , or download the video -

This does work for Miro, using EM, if you manually add the RSS2 link for the site (and yes yes , also only if the site is running fast that day sigh)

Similarly for the drupal system that is using.

  1. atm, these files need to be added in the system - and Miro restarted
  • for you to replicate this on a standard miro install.

On linux, using debian, the file path is : /usr/share/miro/resources/searchengines

For other systems, i have no idea, but probably something very similar. instance_location/resources/searchengines/

Basically, for real users to use this - we would need to get these files accepted into the upstream Miro distrobution - or build our own binary installers, for all platforms - and offer that for download on site.
