I really don't know anything about it, but would it be possible to develop a distributed-computing platform to deal with cpu time for video conversion? This seems to me to be the kind of thing that our communities would be happy to 'lease out' their cpus for.

Hi everyone, I have a video ready to go to promote this new URL, and will be going on paternity leave in (possibly under) a month. It would be nice if this could be a priority so that we can get the video out before then :) If anyone wants to see the cut, email me and i can share a password-protected vimeo link. vgrigas@wikimedia.org

I'm in the process of editing videos for the post and awaiting Arabic translations, which will delay slightly.

Sorry! I threw this up in haste. This is more of an on-wiki thing I don't quite understand how to fix and thought this woudl be a place to fix it. If you click the template link for 'find link' it goes to a for profit site. Please assign any group you feel might be appropriate!

VictorGrigas added a comment to T121109: CC IGO 3.0 licences (BY & BY-SA) in the Wikimedia Upload wizard.

If this is the case, then under the user preferences for commons upload wizard (in user accounts) can there be a 'more' tab for the 516 options? Then the ESA staffer could set it up once and then never have to think about it again, which would mean he'd be more inclined to use commons than flickr for uploading content.

Yes they are all in Dallas, would you like to label them as such?

I see 5 out of 8 transcodes are done, 3 are apparently running, though I'd presume they should be done by now.

What was the issue originally? No transcodes at all? Or not all of them?

Yes, I've shot the servers, but now there's a legal issue about the rights that I'm waiting to resolve. Needless to say it's frustrating. I'll let you know as soon as they are up.

@Steinsplitter - Yes, actually I'll be photographing (and hopefully shooting video of) the servers on Dallas on the way back from Wikimania. I'll have that media online asap.

I can say that for video production, it's much easier to advertise a short URL than a long one. Here's a case in point:
