Have you looked at OHMS?
It is made for digital oral histories. It is very easy for audio, and for
video it is geared towards YouTube, and that kind of thing. However, they
are currently working on a fix that will allow non YouTube sites (you need
good streaming to allow for jumping around the video). They are also
working on a bilingual add on as well.

> We’re currently using Omeka for exhibits and Wordpress for our library

> of oral histories. During project planning (more than a year ago), the
> decision was made to use Omeka. Our original project goals were to add
> functionality to Omeka enabling (a) a multilingual site (metadata, content,
> interface), (b) ldap integration, (c) a ResourceSync component to sync
> objects from CONTENTdm.
> However now that we’ve started coding, we’re rethinking our strategy.
> We’re concerned about the upgrade path (or lack thereof?) to Omeka S
> (multisite) and are finding that plugin-writing documentation is sparse.
> Of course Wordpress has a much bigger developer community, solid
> documentation, plugins for ldap integration and multilingual sites, etc.
> But unlike Omeka, its purpose isn’t to do the specific thing we want to do.
> So we’re debating.
> Thanks for your thoughts,
