Video Authoring

Video Authoring involves everything to do with videos in Tiki, e.g. interviews, how-to instructional videos, etc..



Release responsibilities

  • Test tv.tiki.org and confirm it’s good before the upgrade
  • Test everything related to Kaltura
  • Make sure relevant videos are updated to latest version

Todo

Ongoing

  • Maintain tv.tiki.org
  • Maintain the menus. Per example when a new page is created (and added in the above ToDo list), add a link in the menus so that registered members can easily go to the said page and see what the “New ToDo List is all about”

Revamp Project

Tiki video channel objectives

  • promote a meta video about posting videos on the channel
  • promote Tiki community to attract new developers and users
  • share tutorials
  • share internal community interviews
  • share guess speakers interviews
  • share use cases
  • share webinars recordings
  • share private videos
  • Make HTML5 videos & open standards the default in Tiki the software and in use on *.tiki.org

Those objectives could become channel themes.

Platforms

Kaltura.com hosting

Plus

  • full control of our videos
  • can be used as a video repository
  • a place to test Kaltura’s integration into Tiki for each version
  • ad free
  • compatible with trackers (to be confirmed)
  • We could choose to self-host videos in the future

Minus

  • cost of maintenance (another site to maintain) There is no more or less cost to maintain our Kaltura.com account than there is to maintain our YouTube or Video account
  • cost of storage capacities We have a free account on Kaltura.com because of our status
  • cost of bandwidth We have a free account on Kaltura.com because of our status
  • Hosted Kaltura.com is expensive for community members that would want it. Installing Kaltura was historically tricky but now it’s getting easier: http://kaltura.github.io/platform-install-packages/

With or without tv.tiki.org

Keep tv.tiki.org as a separate Tiki

Minus

  • Work to maintain
  • Duplicated content with other sites

Shut down tv.tiki.org

Plus

  • One less Tiki instance to manage

Minus

  • Loss of video-centric site

Transform tv.tiki.org into a perspective of tiki.org

Questions

  • what video channel(s) should we choose?
  • do we control video quality before sharing them on future official Tiki channels?
  • do we propose video standards for video producers?
  • do we invest in pro video accounts on YouTube and/or Vimeo to get more options (customization, more storage, more HD videos, more bandwidth, etc.)
  • if there is a purpose to maintain various platforms, could we develop a script to automatically update each site?
  • who has admin access to the Vimeo account?
  • how do we handle copyright? (we would suggest that all content shared publicly should be under CC and each producer is responsible of its own content)
  • should we consider Ustream, Google Hangout, etc.? Or could we make a link between BBB and our channels?

Next steps

  • update the Tiki video team page
  • organize a community debate around Tiki video strategy (could be a webinar)
  • clearly define strategy
  • implement strategy
