pyvideo status: April 3rd, 2013
What is pyvideo.org
pyvideo.org is an index of Python-related
conference and user-group videos on the Internet. Saw a session you
liked and want to share it? It's likely you can find it, watch it,
and share it with pyvideo.org.
Videos for PyCon US 2013 are still going
up. There are 115 posted and live now. There are around 30 that are
waiting for presenters to look at the metadata and tell Carl whether
the metadata is good or not. More on that later.
Several new people submitted patches to richard! Several of the patches were
fixes to broken things they saw on pyvideo.org. I've applied the
fixes to the site directly, but have been waiting on making any
non-critical updates to the site until after things have cooled
off. I think I'll do a site update in the next week or so.
PyData 2013 was recorded. When videos are posted, they'll be in the
PyData category. I don't
know what the posting schedule is.
I was contacted a couple of times by the inimitable Montréal Python to post their videos. They're going
to test out steve
which is the tool I've been writing for the last 6 months to make it
possible for other folks to generate the video metadata needed by
I eagerly look forward to their progress and to their videos getting
on the site.
If it works out well, I'll blog more about steve and look for
volunteers to use steve to generate the video metadata for the ever
Several people are gittip'ing me. It's not a lot of money, but that
and the many emails I've gotten over the last few weeks about the
site have been really great. I work on pyvideo.org in my free time
of which I don't have a lot. It's nice to know that prioritizing
pyvideo.org work over other things helps you.
That's the gist of things!
Most of the PyCon US 2013 videos that aren't live are waiting for
presenters to tell Carl at NextDayVideo (carl at nextdayvideo dot com)
whether the metadata is good.
- If you see your name on this list and you've told Carl the metadata
is fine already, please send him a friendly reminder.
- If you see your name on this list and you haven't told Carl
anything, please send him a "yes, this is great!" or the list of
things you need corrected.
- If you see a friend on this list, tell your friend to do one of the
I'll update this list as I'm aware of changes. However, I don't work
for NextDayVideo, so it's entirely possible my list is not current
and/or there are errors. If so, please let me know.
