Video processing unit back in business

I caught up with the queue of raw video files to process, and after crunching about 40GB of stuff it finally came to the recording of the NYC SUG talk on the coding contest. The result will be a 700mb file (roughly speaking), lasting almost 83 minutes, and with very good resolution: 960x480!

No video editing was done on the footage*. I am not sure as to what to do with the illegible source code being projected on the wall, but on the other hand there is not that much source code to begin with.

I am still in doubt as to what to do regarding distribution... Google video? Just put it in an FTP server? Whatever ends up happening, the footage from next Wednesday's talk should be processed sooner now that the backlog is taken care of.

* The sound track was left verbatim as well, other than some postprocessing.

You could provide the slides as a .pdf file. Watching a video and having the .pdf alongside for the details worked like a treat for other presentations I watched on the web.

Ahh, true enough. I included the slide and the original source code along with the footage.

Thanks,
Andres.
