Great work on getting the labs project started. In terms of what a modern incarnation of
metavid wiki would look like I think it would tie into wikidata and timed media handler
and possibly leverage some of the UI concepts from miro subtitles.
We should have a very concrete effort to deploy timed media handler later this month.
Timed media handler will support srt wiki hosted text files in the initial release and we
can be looking at other temporal metadata formats. Especially in the context of wikidata
enabling different content types for stored versioned data with the mediaWiki platfom.
Nailing down the data format other tools can be built around that format. Similar to how
we supported miro subs tool to update media wiki hosted srts.

Subject: [MetaVid-l] Call for Ideas: MetaVidWiki + Wikimedia Labs

Hi MetaVidWiki-ers (and wikivideo enthusiasts),
I'd like to call your attention to the new MetaVidWiki project hosted on
Labs is "an environment where users can create and manage entire computing
and networking infrastructures" for technical development work related to
Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) projects. Software that builds and runs well
in Labs can be transferred into WMF's production environment without much
fuss; additionally, new code can be merged upstream via a web-based code
review system (Gerrit). More information:
So here's where you come in: in the context of OpenMeetings.org
proposed as a new WMF sister project, now might be a good time to start
gathering and documenting ideas for new MetaVidWiki features (or
identifying problem areas) to serve as a technical development roadmap.
The relevant section of the sister project proposal:
I'm happy to grant developer access to the Labs project to anyone upon
request. It's really neat. Comments or edits to the sister project
proposal are also most welcome. Join!
George / User:GChriss
p.s. -- Happy Wikimania to anyone in DC!
