However, I would suggest looking hard at the stats on
how often videos are
viewed (and if there is a way to know if they are
viewed all the way
through or not).
For Wikimania 2014, the Youtube page
<https://www.youtube.com/user/WikimaniaLondon/videos> and livestream
<https://livestream.com/wikimania> show some stats (videos are also
available in Commons so some views may not be captured in the former
pages). On livestream, were videos were shared first, the most viewed video
shows 2,359 views, it is not hard to find videos in the 100-500 view range,
and others just have less than 20 views.
It's certainly a professional job to get all the session video produced and
published in good time after the conference. No volunteer team could do
this, it requires a LOT of equipment, professional expertise and hard work.
To me, the view numbers seem *excellent -* if you consider the conference
in terms of price-per-attendee, spending <5% more so that additional
hundreds can see the content is an order of magnitude better value.
