Video as Free ~Software Project?
Posted May 24, 2011 7:50 UTC (Tue) by tialaramex (subscriber, #21167)
Don't rush off and do this just because of an LWN comment, but it occurs to me that just as a coder can pick up someone's github project and fix a bunch of bugs without asking, and artists have markedly improved some Free Software projects just by replacing lots of bad graphics... it's possible that talented folk would volunteer time to edit together other people's tutorials or similarly valuable video material.
The real equivalents of source code here would be a script, and any presentation or other material to be shown visually. Certainly re-recording the voice for some other technical material I've seen on Youtube wouldn't hurt, particularly when it's drowned out by background machine noise. But we can think of the unedited video and audio recordings as intermediate code, still useful to someone who wants to tweak the final result to add polish.
