Likewise! :) Online now myself.
I have a collection of freely-licensed EdX videos in webm, a few hundred
short videos in all. If we can amline uploading, we may be able to
relicense much of their collection.
I hear importImages is an effective way to upload them; is this something I
can do from labs? is there another way to request an import?
I have a set on a hard drive, can send you a copy; average size ranges from
200M to 1.5G per video (a ~60min class).
Ideally we would end up with
a) an IA collection
b) a wikisource collection (hosted on Commons)
c) video editors updating the video descriptions w/ links to articles that
might be related, and related timestamps. [as step 1 of inviting people to
use in articles and... a magnus style tool :) ]
I have some video editors interested in c. We're stuck on a+b.
