Video transcoders churning away

FOSDEM is over, but our video infrastructure is still working hard!

This year, there were 855 events in rooms where the FOSDEM video team had equipment to stream, record, and publish everything, for a total of 365 scheduled hours of content. Postprocessing that much video is a massive task that takes quite a bit of effort; for this reason, since the 2017 edition, we have crowdsourced most of the manual work that needs to happen for this postprocessing to the devroom organizers and the speakers, as explained in this talk at FOSDEM 2019.

As of this writing, out of those 855 talks, 544 have been reviewed by their speakers and/or devroom organizers and are either available to be wachted through our video archive or the schedule. If you want to know what happened with your favourite talk, please see our review overview page.

Currently, however, our encoders are starting to run dry, and we need more work for them. If you were a speaker or devroom organizer at FOSDEM, please check your mailbox and review the video of your talk(s) as soon as possible, so that we can release them to the world. To do this, you should have received an email with instructions on the email address you entered into pretalx, our conference management application. If you did not receive such an email, please contact us so we can help you get that resolved.
