I would love to have the videodb integrated (authentication) to Joomla.
I have no idea how the authentication works in either one.
I know a polish guy at some point made this, but it's impossible to understand polish :-)
I found a general authentication system called JFusion, and that framework can be used to all sorts of things, but I have no idea how to accomplish the integration.
My thought with jfusion is, that if you integrate to that, then the problem of changing versions of joomla is a problem for jfusion, and not videodb.
The website is at: http://www.jfusion.org/
I guess it's a question of user inheritance, and authentication?
I hope some php guru will accomplish this, and it isn't andreas stuck with one more task :-)
