The Internet Archive module allows sites to automatically transfer media files (audio & video) as well as associated metadata to and from Once files have been transferred, they can be displayed using's embedded player, and derivatives can be retrieved.

Notes on forthcoming D7 Port:

The D6 development release of this module provides:

  • ability to trigger manual transmission of files stored in CCK filefields, emfields or textfields
  • an automated file transfer queue, capable of harvesting files from any view containing a filefield, emfield or textfield (dependent on drupal_queue, includes configuration options for days/times to allow transfers, can be triggered by drush command or cron)
  • a configuration step in Media Mover 2x to store files to, or add them to the internet_archive send file queue
  • a hook for modules to designate metadata that should be stored with files on
  • support for including licenses declared by the Creative Commons module.
  • om_metadata sub-module to support the schema at Open Media Project and provide an example for implementation of hook_internet_archive_metadata
  • internet_archive_remote sub-module provides a SOAP client and server files to facilitate transferring files located on an external server
  • Ability to update Embedded Media Audio/Video fields using the Media: Archive module.
  • Ability to allow site users or administrators control over updating metadata and/or deleting files on

The current development release is functional, but could use a lot more testing.

This module is sponsored by the Knight Foundation via a Knight News Challenge grant for the Open Media Project with additional support provided by the Open Media Foundation.
