  • So... I have the videos for YAPC 2010, and working on them. Let me share my experience so far as the poor sap working on the videos.

    And let me preface this with, not trying to be defensive, just trying to make folks understand, and would be interested in faster approaches to getting it done.

    Challenge 1 is. I can't just release the raw video files. On each camera, there is just a list of 2gb files, chopped up randomly by the camera. Some of those talks are by people who didn't give us permission to publi
    • Some interesting options for future conferences by the sounds of it, that we can fix for next time.

      1. Have the camera operators (for which volunteering is plentiful often) verify distribution forms beforehand, and if no permission is there don't record at all.

      (Cuts down on size, waste, and complexity in post-processing)

      2. Simple person name and talk name on an A4 sheet, held up in front of camera??

      • Makes sense… catching mistakes at compile time is better. :-)

      • Given that we had one third as many camera operators as cameras, doing anything in real time wasn't an option :)
