Hi,

The good new is we have a quite "professional" translator for Dave's
talk! Fortunately, there are a some artists from Canada working in
Córdoba these days, and one of them, native from Colombia accepted to
be our translator during the talks day. I think for the workshop it
will ok with us :)

The question is about doing video-streaming of the workshop. It's
possible to get this, I'm not sure, because some days ago some friends
made a workshop of experimental tv with free software and we can ask
for help in this sense... Dave, what do you think?

I insist, it's just a possibility ... with many factors to confirm.

Here more to see:

If it can be done with libre software, that's perfect :-) Will a
recording also be available?

Cheers

I'm checking with some friends to have some video recording / editing /
post :D in some places... just waiting for confirmation.
Another thing to have in mind is that we have a wonderful dinner in La
Cúpula (http://lacupulagaleria.com.ar) with Lila, the "professional"
translator and his crew ;), Jorge Castro and some friends, sooo if you
like the idea, please schedule it. :D

I've added you to the company calendar so you can freely add these
events yourself :)

Their website is not live streaming right now, but I see that they use
an html5 player and that the link to the video stream is
http://stream.neokinok.tv:8000/tvlabcba.ogg which means it is
perfectly compatible with software freedom!

Is it made with libre software?

I dont know what they are using server-side. But usually it is done
with dvgrab to capture video from a camera, oggenc to encode it to
theora/vorbis, ogg-fwd to send the ogg file to a (possibly remote)
icecast streaming server, which serves the file over http to the
users. The users can view it directly in a video player like totem or
vlc or in an html5 webpage via html:video tag.

This is all free software.

hmmm... actually, ffmpeg2theora instead of oggenc!

dvgrab --format raw - | tee dvstream.dv | ffmpeg2theora -A 45 -V 400
-c 1 -f dv -x 360 -y 288 -o /dev/stdout - | tee savelivestream.ogv |
oggfwd -p -d "Stream description" -n "Streamname" my.icecastserver.com
80 icecastpassword /stream.ogv
