Last week we provided an update as to our X@FOSDEM 2010 video status
. Well, it's still taken some time to get these recordings out there that were taken earlier this month in Brussels, Belgium. While I am back to my normal working schedule, the uploading has been hampered by the file size of these 720p HD recordings. The videos are too long to be hosted on YouTube, we don't have the bandwidth to allocate for these massive video files for non-Premium
users, and most of the other video sites out there don't allow video recordings of an hour in length or file sizes greater than 1GB or have a decent Flash Player.
However, with many of the presentation slides being out there
, the video is not nearly as important as the audio. After all, the videos are just capturing a portion of the slides that were projected due to the projection screen's proximity to the camera. Most of our video files are 3~4GB in size and once compressing them the video quality is shot. The audio quality this year though is quite good. As a result, we have started uploading MP3 files of the FOSDEM talks.
If you want to listen to Nicolai Hähnle's talk about the R300 GLSL (GL Shading Language) status and road-map, that 40 minute recording is now available. We have hosted the MP3 at this TooFiles location
that allows streaming from its Flash Player or download in MP3 format. Here
are his slides (ODP format) if you wish to follow along.
More of the recordings are on the way.
