 Where's the latest thread on the Timed Media Handler progress?

 I am meeting with MIT Open CourseWare tomorrow - they want to expand
 the set of videos they released last year under CC-SA, starting with
 categories / vids that would be fill gaps on Wikipedia.  Any thoughts
 on how to make that collaboration more effective would be welcome.

You can upload them to Internet Archive, if Wikipedia has temporal issues
with videos. When the problems are fixed, we can move them from Internet
Archive to Wikimedia Commons.

 Um. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Video appear to all be
 images relevant to the topic of videos. Not themselves videos.


Sorry, a missing S, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Videos


 Owner? Not personally but I am the CEO of the charity which owns them and
 I can release them.

 Is there any actual video anywhere on WP and in what format?


Yes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Articles_containing_video_clips

The prefered format is Theora
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Video

 I am wondering about releasing many hundreds of Africa educational videos
 under creative commons.

 They are the videos currently at www.our-africa.org which is a child
 generated reference site about Africa.

 There is a lot of material in the videos which could be edited and used
 to
 improve Wikipedia article (a solar kettle in operation, a maize plant
 grinding maize, a variety of musical instruments in use, different
 religious festivals, cocoa plantations etc etc)

 However at present Wikipedia does not seem to support or want video
 material.


 Wikipedia supports video with [[Media:]] tag. Also, Wikimedia Commons has
 a little collection of them
 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Video



 Does anyone have a feel whether this is likely to change?


 http://www.videoonwikipedia.com

 Also, this message is more related to Wikimedia or Commons mailing lists
 (cc:). If you are the owner of those videos and you want to donate them,
 some people can help you in the process.

 Well, not really - uploading video is still laborious because we've
 been waiting literally years for the Timed Media Handler, which is a
 wikitech issue. Andrew could probably deal with the ffmpeg2theora bit,
 but it's still faffy and troublesome.

TimedMediaHandler deployed onto Wikimedia Foundation sites by the end of
May 2012.

TimedMediaHandler has been reviewed by Ian Baker and Kandalgaonkar
extensively, with lots of changes made in response by Michael Dale.
Review notes and Michael's follow-up are at

currently being tested, including transcoding support, at
