It might be of interest to people on this list so I thought I would share.
This weekend I will live stream a few sessions from the Wikimedia Diversity
Conference. I will use Open Broadcaster Software Studio (or OBS for
short), which appaerently is what all the streaming kids use today. I
will stream to YouTube and later upload the file to Commons. It is really
easy to save a local file while you stream, so I don't need do download it
from YouTube before uploading it to Commons. I will also try a live
captioning tool called Web Captioner . Unfortunately that will render
the subtitles into the video, even though they are also downloadable in
.srt, but I guess one cannot get everything (yet).
To a related question, do anyone know decent categories on Commons to put
lower thirds and other graphics in? And is there any good place onwiki to
document how to use them?
