open-media part 5
- okay, i sent our video coment project to JD Lasica over at
I believe that this is the exact kind of stuff they are looking for.
so our worries of bandwidth and storage really is becoming a non-issue.
here's what he wrote today:
I talked with the Internet Archive folks sunday. Two things:
- Yes, they'll store our video and provide bandwidth fast enough for serving
video (I don't know the precise mps rate). The only restriction is they want
stuff that's at least semi-creative in nature, not just shots of the family
birthday or random people walking down the street.
- they said they generally handle file sizes up to 2 GB per piece of media.
Sound good? We can actually begin experimenting with this right away rather
than waiting for the open media public website to launch in 4-6 weeks. If
you're interested, lemme know. Can't do it this week (stewart's on vacation)
but could as early as in a week or two.
My answer, in short is: Let's try it and see what happens.
none of us make a file more than 10MB. haha
so of course i said let us know the details.
we could do a huge collaborative video project using this video comment
maybe we'll get http://videoblogging.info onto their server.
let's work the bugs out of the Andreas' player.
we need to be able to jump around to each individual video.
