The DataObjectManager has lots of great features and I particularly like the way a page can display a bunch of related objects -looking forward to using it.
My problem is that the website I'm working on (for a not-for-profit organisation) is on a cheaper host server & they don't have ffmpeg installed. So I'd like to know what features of DataObjectManager I can still use, what my options are and what I should avoid.
The main thing I want to do is store a series of mp3 files and display a page of links to these files. I can live without having access to an inbuilt player if necessary and just provide a download link.
My questions are:
1. Is installing ffmeg within my own web space a possibility or can it only be done by the providers of the server?
2. Are there other options for an mp3 player I could look into that would integrate well with this module?
3. Failing those options, what classes/methods/declarations etc should I avoid to not invoke a "Your server doesn't appear to have ffmpeg installed" error at the top of the page?
(My apologies if these questions have been asked and answered elsewhere - I have trawled through quite a few threads before posting!)
