[Wikimedia-l] VideoWiki Tool

2019-05-02 Thread James Heilman
Hey All

The videowiki tool for making video summaries has moved to an "all on
Wikipedia" functionality.

Step-by-step instructions on how to use it are here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VideoWiki/Tutorial

An example video is here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VideoWiki/Polio

And a place to play around with the tool is here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VideoWiki/Sandbox

Well it works there is still a lot of stuff to improve within the tool.
Feedback appreciated. Best
