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.

 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.

 Also, this message is more related to Wikimedia or Commons mailing lists

 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.
