Grilo makes it easier for application developers to access online multimedia content from many different sources, removing the need to implement an interface to each content source type.Grilo is a framework that provides:

  • A single, high-level API that abstracts the differences between various media content providers
  • A collection of plugins that implement the access to various media providers
  • A flexible API to write more plugins. Developers can share efforts and code by writing plugins for the framework that are application agnostic

This talk is targeted at developers with an interest in multimedia and in retrieving remote and local content homogeneously. Attendees can expect to learn what is Grilo and how it can be used and extended. The presentation aims to be useful to the community by allowing developers to join forces in the work needed to access remote multimedia content.
