Where are my session videos?
A lot of you have been asking when the session videos from DrupalCamp Austin 2009 will be made available online. Unfortunately, this is a lengthy process which will take a few weeks to complete. The sessions were filmed in HD, which means it takes about 7 hours to convert the raw footage of just one session into MPEG format. Then we will need to take that 7GB MPEG file and convert it into a format that will be friendly to upload to the web. So with 20 videos to process, we hope you’ll be patient while we work our brittle fingers to the bone.
Do you have any recommendations on where we should host the videos? Previous DrupalCons/DrupalCamps have uploaded the videos to the Internet Archive. The biggest advantage of the IA is that it gives end-users access to download the source video files for easy offline viewing. Of course, we’re also big fans of sites like Vimeo, which offer a more user-friendly and social experience.
