If you haven't looked recently, there's been some huge progress recently for Drupal's Media module. Jacob Singh from Acquia has jumped on board, paving the way for fieldable entities! This allows Media asset objects to be a first class Drupal citizen, alongside Nodes, Users, Taxonomy, and Comments. (Hopefully in core for Drupal 8!) Also, Dipen Chaudhary has been hard at work providing WYSIWYG support! The Tutorial
This past month I've been busy getting the Styles module ready for release. This module does the heavy lifting for display of Media objects. For those that don't know yet, Media, the File Browser to the Internet, is the future of media handling for Drupal 7. It exposes the underlying streams API of Drupal core, allowing for fieldable media entities (fields on files), mixing up images and audio, local files and YouTube. Basically, the Styles module allows you to select a style for display with a field (or in a View or with WYSIWYG), and the field will be displayed as determined by the predetermined criteria. For instance, as shown in the above diagram, you might set the display as 'Medium', and the actual displayed file or remote stream will be selected according to the file's mime type (as an image, a video, in an mp3 player, etc).
The DRUPAL-6--2-0 branch works well with the Node Reference / Embed Media Browser (nrembrowser) module to bring Media -like functionality to d6! Drupal 6-x-1 version Styles works with Drupal 6 + Filefield Styles to bring Drupal 7 to Filefield . Styles are containers to group similar field display formatters. For example, a style on a Filefield may contain several formatters based on the mimetype or stream, while a style on a node reference might display various formatters based on the referenced node type. By itself, this module does nothing. Rather, it provides an API available for use by other modules.
The Media module provides an extensible framework for managing files and multimedia assets, regardless of whether they are hosted on your own site or a 3rd party site - it is commonly referred to as a 'file browser to the internet'. Media is a drop-in replacement for the Drupal core upload field with a unified User Interface where editors and administrators can upload, manage, and reuse files and multimedia assets. Any files uploaded before Media was enabled will automatically take advantage of the many of the features it comes with. Media's aim is to solve Drupal's long standing media handling problem.
Drupal 7 Media: Youtube integrates with the Media module to make Youtube videos available as file entities. Users can add Youtube videos to their site in a file field or insert them into a WYSIWYG area by pasting the video's URL into the media browser web tab.
