Small World News

StoryMaker is a tool to help citizen journalists produce better content.

Currently, StoryMaker can publish video content securely via a custom YouTube uploader. This project will add at least four new distribution channels to support more secure publishing of StoryMaker content. Specifically, support will be added for secure photo publishing to flickr, secure audio publishing to SoundCloud, private publishing of any media to a private server via SSH, and secure photo and video sharing to Facebook.
