I was in love with Scribd for the following reasons:
- Nice possibilites for embedding documents into my own site.
- Good api for developers which I could use from within Drupal through scribdfield.
That was why I suggested Scribd for fjvu.dk for their document knowledge database. However, after finishing the development cycle and into the final phase of testing, the limitations started to show (note to self: remember to read all documentation before integrating an external service).
- The upload limit was not sufficient for my project. I had some documents on 200MB+, but Scribd cannot technically handle documents over 100MB (and in reality maybe only 75MB).
- To download you need a Scribd account even if the document has been embedded to another page. I did not want to force the users of fjvu.dk to create a Scribd account.
Everything taken into account, I had to drop Scribd and just upload the documents with a the Drupal file field (which does not give me the nice iPaper reader or any other eyecandy).
Unless any of you have a better suggestion?
