Integrate Paella in your portal

Paella needs to know certain information to play your videos.

  • How many videos there are
  • The URLs of those videos
  • The properties of those videos (length, size, …)
  • Preview pictures
  • etc…

So, You need to pass all that information to paella. Paella provides you three ways to pass that information.

The basic way

Paella is able lo read a file data.json to obtain the information needed to play the videos. This is the simplest way to play videos with paella as you don’t need to program anything or modify any html file.

Using this method you need to have a repository folder and, there your data.json files and configure paella to use that repository.

The intermediate way

If you don’t want to have a repository folder or you want to embed Paella into your own html page, you can read How to integrate paella in your portal: the intermediate way

The advanced way

However, You can program (in javascript) some adaptors that Paella can use to obtain all the information needed.
