CMWeb Content Authoring
Generally, for authoring CMWeb content,
you will need to write CMML files for specific media files and then
run the Annodex "encoder" to create Annodex files. Here are some
libraries and command line tools to support you in this task:
For an introduction to using the command-line tools, see the Australian Linux Magazine. Though it is based on
previous versions of the software and formats, the principles remain
the same. Also, check out our guide on how
to Annodex Theora.
Apache web server modules
Although the Annodex and CMML file formats can be served as regular files by
any existing web server, these modules provide more powerful capabilities
such as dynamic generation of Annodex media, and handling queries for timed
mod_annodex serves Annodex content with temporal offsets, preprocesses Annodex
media from CMML, and can provide CMML summaries of existing Annodex files
if preferred by the HTTP request Accept header.
mod_cmml provides advanced handling of CMML files, including temporal
subranges of CMML data.
