> Hello Guys!
> Today in our LATAM meeting we talk about this topic and I believe that if
> several projects are pointing to share though video is because *is the
> right way to take*... now, even if like Abdel say, are different projects,
> I think we can join our forces and defeat the text side...
> Now. Lets see those points we have in common and things we could do
> * All projects want to make people stop reading and start interacting with
> new resources (videos)
> * We can use a unique plattform to upload either videos or videoconferences
> recordings (which are important)
> * Share knowledge
> I have tried BBB and is really awesome, however, I'm not sure if Infra team
> will push this is we don't make it work before. What are my recommendations:
> we can start with G-Hangout or any service already online. Mostly,
> because we need to see if people is interested not only in the idea, but
> also on be part of this. How can we do this?
> I will be having a couple of meetings through Hangout (some for videos and
> other related stuff) and we can go through there, set a weekly time/date
> and start meetings there with random topics. Is a way to push people to see
> each other before set up an infra that we don't know if people will use
> -since begining-.
> To make this project work, just like videos is happening, we need to see
> commitment... that's stage one :)
> Constantin, I would love if you can join us at #Fedora-Design at 1530UTC
> (in about... 4:30h) and share some ideas with the Videos team.
> See ya all!

>> Hello Kévin.
>> I have read about the videotutorial initiative and I consider that this
>> project is a little different. The main idea of this project is to have
>> platform (supported by Fedora) that allows us to make videoconferences, a
>> new form of Fedora events where people from all over the world can
>> in local events in other countries and why not have the possibility of
>> creating transnational events.
>> It is a great idea to have that temp video files saved on the Fedora
>> Videos project. Maybe I could start creating some guidelines for the
>> This is the link of the BBB project:
>> This is the tutorial for installing on Fedora (depreciated):
>> Hope this informations helps. Expecting opinions and comments...

>>> Hi, That is really interesting.
>>> What are the BBB dependencies (java, pyhton…?) What are the bandwidth
>>> needs? What about the disk space?
>>> That could rapidly be an expensive platform.
>>> Could also be used as fedora classroom.
>>> Could we add external video in this platform? (In France, we have
>>> started to build a page providing video and its corresponding
>>> sideshow (still looking for hosting)).
>>> There is an other project that has started, "video tutorials".
>>> Please read the wiki page.
>>> We should probably have only one platform for those needs.
>>> I am not sure that the infra will provide us a physical machine for
>>> that, could we think about a VM and hosting facilities under
>>> archives.org or other free online services?
>>> Do BBB is able to record a talk in a temp folder, stream it, and then
>>> send it to an hosted storage? (That should not be too difficult).
