Summary0003953: Embedded Video Feature in Help & Acknowledgement
Description

There are many excellent workflow demonstration videos for 3D Slicer modules on youtube.
I propose to add a "Video" feature to the Help & Acknowledgement section where a developer can easily embed such video so that the user can understand the usage of the module even easier.

TagsNo tags attached.

Hi Peter,

That for your report.

That would be a great addition.

I guess the idea would be extend the metadata currently associated with modules. In addition to contributors, categories, help Text, acknowledgement Text, ... (See [1]). We could may be extent these.

Checking how existing project associate metatdata like video, screenshot, ... would be helpful. Is there any convention to to do ? Something we could inspire from ?

May be adding a "resourceLinks" metadata that would be a map of mime/type and link would be general enough ? That way we could either add more info to the HelpText ... or add a new tab named "Resources".

Let me know what you think and if it is something you would like to work on.

Thanks
Jc
