I would like to put together a video gallery on my website and am wondering if there are any existing Drupal modules to manage that. I'm using Drupal 6 and most likely the videos will be hosted on YouTube.
Ideally, I would like to arrange them in topical albums in which each video could be annotated with a description of the videos.
Drupal 6: Embedded Media Field. Now has a D7 version too.
This extensible module will create fields for content types that can be used to display video, image, and audio files from various third party providers. When entering the content, the user will simply paste the URL or embed code from the third party, and the module will automatically determine which content provider is being used. When displaying the content, the proper embedding format will be used.
Drupal 7: Media
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'.
The simplest modules to do this task are:
Adding content(videos) using these modules will be simple and later css modifications can help in the positioning and look of the gallery.
Actually, a most modern approach to do this in drupal 7 is Module Asset. It has his its own entity Media asset to manage the medias.
It's very flexible since you can create your own types of Media Assets, which are fieldable entities, and has integration with CKEditor module.
Use the combination of CKEditor and Media module.
CKEditor: It provides many HTML editing feature like:
Media: It 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 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.
