SOLVED

folder structure for custom metadata(formitems) for flash files

Avatar

Level 1

Hi,

I want to add an item to flash files metadata. Followed DAM documentation and created folder structure as 'apps/dam/content/asseteditors/video/swf/formitems'. But when I open the .swf asset file in DAM, the custom metadata is not getting accessed, it is accessing 'apps/dam/content/asseteditors/formitems' not even 'apps/dam/content/asseteditors/video/formitems'.

Any suggestions??

Thanks,

Venu

The mimetype of swf files is application/x-shockwave-flash, not video/swf.

Thanks Justin,

Did not realise the folder structure is based on the mime type, this is not captured in DAM doc "http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/dam/dam_documentation.html".

Anyways, so my folder structure should be "apps/dam/content/asseteditors/application/x-shockwave-flash/formitems"? I have tried this folder structure and asset is still picking up the meta data properties from "apps/dam/content/asseteditors/application/formitems".

Hi Venu,

I am also facing the same issue for creating the custom metadata for video.

I have created the folder /apps/dam/content/asseteditors/video/formitems for custom metadata but it is picking the formitems from /apps/dam/content/asseteditors/formitems

Did you get any resolution for this issue.

Thanks
