    Phoronix: X.Org & CoreBoot FOSDEM Recordings Available

    Near the start of this month was the Free and Open-Source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) in Brussels, Belgium. Like previous years, we recorded all of the X.Org talks that were held, but as we recorded in 720p HD this year, the files were larger than anticipated and we had issues hosting them...

      Feels like stealing not using bittorrent.
      Any chance of a torrent file instead?

        Any chance of uploading these files on Youtube or some other streaming service, split into parts where necessary to fit into service limits?

          What's the license on this files? I'm just interested because if it was something like cc-by-sa people could download and then upload them to video-streaming-sites themselves.

            As long as "Phoronix.com" is mentioned in the title or description on the video streaming site, I am fine with that.

              Great, thanks.

              So the other two coreboot talks and the two flashrom talks are still being uploaded?

                GIGS!!! you're performance guys, TRUNCATE! You have enough source data that a lossy codec shouldn't hurt the quality much at all. you could also SEGMENT it so as to fit it on a youtube. Wasn't there once a site for hosting linux videos? its where the "Your Linux is ready" advertisement was put. Where did that go?

                  When I can get my hands on the files, I will transcode them and create a torrent for everyone.

                    I'm sorry if I will seem as ungrateful but
                    I've just downloaded xorg-daniel-stone.mp4 (1.9 GB).
                    It's useless. Having just the audio would have the same effect.
                    The "camera work" is like a poor bootlegged movie filmed in a movie theater from a bad angle/position.
                    Also I've just re-encoded it to just 30 MB (448x252 avi). Even if you just re-encoded them at the same resolution you will get big size reduction because you have almost no motion (the movie is almost a still picture).

                      Why don't you set up a dedicated Phoronix YouTube channel? You also get nice analytics to track who's watching etc.

                      If you use YouTube you can also easily embed the videos in posts - most people are more interested in what's being said than having it in the highest definition (you could provide that too for the few who really want it). It'd make it more accessible to many readers too.

                        I just fired up a script to convert the videos to 360p ogv, they should be appearing on http://www.zhick.de/phoronixfosdem in the next few hours. So if you've got a html5-capable browser you can just go there and stream the videos.

                          Regarding the videos: pretty boring, I'd prefer it if the video would show the guy doing the talk instead of just a small part of the slides.

                            Awesome, thanks Zhick! I was just downloading the mp4 files, but the Ogg Theora ones are a lot better, because so much smaller.
