mod_muc_media_metadata

Introduction

This module adds additional metadata to media shared in a MUC. This can help clients make decisions and provide better UI and enhanced privacy, by knowing things like file size without needing to make external network requests.

NOTE: This is an experimental module. It is not supported by any clients, and therefore is mainly of interest to client developers who wish to explore the idea.

Example stanzas

A normal message in a chatroom containing an image:

<message from="test@rooms.example.com/matthew" id="9f45a784-5e5b-4db5-a9b3-8ea1d7c1162d" type="groupchat">
  <body>https://matthewwild.co.uk/share.php/70334772-ff74-439b-8173-a71e40ca28db/mam-flow.png</body>

  </x>
</message>

The same stanza with this module loaded now contains additional metadata added by the server:

<message from="test@rooms.example.com/matthew" id="9f45a784-5e5b-4db5-a9b3-8ea1d7c1162d" type="groupchat">
