Another day, another videoteam report! It feels like we did a lot of work today, so let's jump right in:
Stefano worked most of the day on the DebConf video archive metadata project. A bunch of videos already have been uploaded to YouTube.
Here's some gold you might want to watch.
By the end of our sprint, we should have generated metadata for most of our archive and uploaded a bunch of videos to YouTube. Don't worry though, YouTube is only a mirror and we'll keep our current archive as a video master.
Andy joined us today! He hacked away with Stefano for most of the day, working on the metadata format for our videos and making schemes for our scraping tools.
Ivo built and tested a good part of our video setup today, fixing bugs left and right in Ansible. We are prepared for the Cambridge Mini-DebConf!
Nicolas finished his scripts to automatically spool up and down our streaming mirrors via the DigitalOcean API today and ran our Ansible config against those machines to test our setup.
For my part, I completed a huge chunk of my sprint goals: we now have a website documenting our setup! It is currently hosted on Alioth pages, but olasd plans to make a request to DSA to have it hosted on the static.debian.org machine. The final URL will most likely be something like: https://video.debconf.org
The documentation is still missing the streaming section (our streaming setup is not final yet, so not point in documenting that) and a section hosting guides for the volunteers. With some luck I might write those later this week.
I've now moved on documentation our various Ansible roles.
Oh, and we also ate some cheese fondue:
