MIME Router integrates cleanly with Filefield, Imagefield and SWF Tools. File paths can be set via the Token module. To use MIME Router, just upload it into your modules directory and enable it; the module uses the allowed filetypes in Filefield's user interface. Aside from adding fields to your content types, no additional config is needed to use MIME Router.
Using this setup, images, video, and audio can be sent to your site via email. This also supports posting to the site from handheld devices that support emailing files. So, if you have ever been in a situation where you used a handheld device to take a picture, video, or audio recording, and wanted to post it to your own (or your organization's) web presence, this functionality is for you. This functionality can also be used to support eyewitness information on local news sites, real-time reporting for school newspapers, and other situations where you want to get fresh information live quickly.
The MIME Router module was written and released as part of our work for the Knight Drupal Initiative.
