Welcome to Plumi

Plumi is a GPL licensed video sharing Content Management System based on  Plone and produced by the  EngageMedia collective. Plumi enables you to create your own sophisticated video sharing site; by adding it to an existing Plone instance you can quickly have a wide array of functionality to facilitate video distribution and community creation.

Update: The first Plumi release is currently expected in mid-July. We're still ironing out a few bugs. You can see an operational version in the meantime at  http://engagemedia.org
