New media types supported in Commons
Closed, InvalidPublic


Wikimedia Commons a database of millions of freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute. The pictures, audio and video files you find in Wikipedia articles are hosted in Commons. Several free media types are already supported but there are more requested by the community, like e.g. X3D for representing 3D computer graphics or KML/KMZ for geographic annotation and visualization. Considerations need to be taken for each format, like security risks or fallback procedures for browsers not supporting these file types.

  • Skills: PHP at least. Good knowledge of the file type chosen will be more than helpful.
  • Mentors: Bryan Davis
