Media Bundle

The SonataMediaBundle is a media library based on a dedicated provider which handles different type of media: files, videos or images.

Each type is managed by a provider service which is in charge of:

  • retrieving media metadata
  • generating media thumbnail
  • tweaking the edit form
  • rendering the media

Each media can be linked to a context. A context can be news, user or any name you want. A context allows you to group a set of pictures together. As requirements can be different for each context, a context is defined by a set of formats and a set of providers.

As the infrastructure is not standard, the MediaBundle abstracts the filesystem layer and the cdn layer.
