One of the really cool ‘web maker’ projects that Mozilla sponsored in the
last few years was Popcorn Maker <https://popcorn.webmaker.org/>, an
in-browser video editor that could take direct video clips or videos from
Youtube etc and let you remix to your heart’s content. (See Ben’s blog post
from July <http://www.benmoskowitz.com/?p=1083> and Mike’s presentation on
Air Mozilla <https://air.mozilla.org/mnolan/>)
Obviously this capability is very attractive for the future of video on
Wikipedia and other Wikimedia sites!
Unfortunately Mozilla has to shuffle priorities, and Popcorn Maker is on
Fortunately, there’s enough interest in the Wikimedia video world that
we’re helping to pick it up!
Popcorn Editor is a standalone version
<https://github.com/mozilla/popcorn-editor#readme> of the Popcorn Maker
editor tool, and I’m going to be helping with integrating that into
MediaWiki. We’ve got a milestone in the bug tracker
and everything. [image: :)]
If you’re interested in helping out, we’re going to have some work sprints
at WikiConference USA <http://wikiconferenceusa.org/wiki/2015/Main_Page>
next weekend in Washington, DC. Please come and help out!
