2013 Videos

We've released these videos as quickly as possible so that people can enjoy the many great talks at LCA this year, and so we can get our rendering gear out of the venue. We know some of these may have problems, but most of them are working and tested. Please let us know if there's anything that is mistitled, short or otherwise incorrect, as well as the ISP mirror you've downloaded the file from, and we'll deal with it as soon as possible.

Helpful debugging information: if the closing screen (the balloons over old Parliament House) doesn't show at the end of the talk, then the file was partly rendered but the render machine probably locked up. If the closing screen shows but the talk was incomplete, then some parts of the talk may be missing, or we might simply have mistakenly unselected one of the raw video files. The former case is easily recoverable; the latter may be impossible to fix without a time machine but may also be recoverable. Let us know either way :-)

9th Feb update

I've re-rendered the folowing videos:

Most of these were cut short either because of render node failure or because, for reasons I don't yet understand, the cut list in veyepar had nonsensical cuts in it - using only 0:0:02 to 0:0:04 of a 47 minute video, for example. Hopefully this has resolved those problems; others, such as the speaker's lapel microphone cutting out in the Bufferbloat talk and getting only the room audio (which is still audible if soft), there's nothing I can do about - sorry :-)

14th Feb update

The following videos have been re-rendered (in both ogv and mp4).

I've also rendered the video for the Cloud Infrastructure, Linux Security, the Arduino Miniconf, and most of the Systems Administration minconf talks on Monday.

17th February update

I've fixed a few render failures:

I've also finished Monday's miniconf talks and the Open Government Tuesday miniconf.

Things we can't fix:

Videos we know have problems:

Thanks to everyone who's reported problems - it's not a perfect system, but check back here after Saturday 16th February for updates. The overall response to getting the videos up quickly rather than perfectly has been very positive - thanks for your support!
