Spotlight: Media Internet Sources


The Media module for Drupal 7 not only supports adding and managing media that is uploaded from a user’s computer into Drupal, but it also comes with a submodule, called Media Internet Sources, that allows using media assets from various Internet locations. In this lesson we'll look at what media internet sources can do for us and quickly explain what stream wrappers are and how they relate to what we want to do on the site.
