OSCon 2008 Video Matrix

Aug 25, 2008 / By Sheeri Cabral

Tags: , , ,

As part of a project of Technocation, Inc I took a whole bunch of videos at OSCon 2008. The conference was about a month ago, and about 2 weeks ago I’d finished processing and uploading all the videos, but it was only today where I had the 5-6 hours I needed to finish posting all the video, and making this matrix of video.

The video may not be the quality that the O’Reilly folks took and put up on blip tv’s OSCon site, but all the videos here are freely downloadable or playable in your browser.

Note that currently all the videos are in .wmv format; I know that’s a common complaint, and I have just acquired software that will allow me to export into different formats. If folks would like to convert formats, Technocation can host the video (to save bandwidth). Also if you have video you’re willing to share, please comment here (and if you’d like Technocation to offer downloads of it — they have tons of bandwidth — please get in touch).

    Thanks, for the effort but the sound quality is just awful. The internet is an ogre presentation is impossible to listen to sadly :(

  • Sheeri Cabral says:

    That was a tough presentation because the camera was way in the back. Check out some of the other presentations, the sound quality is much better on most of them.

    Take the ‘s out of the table to shove it back up the page.

  • david says:
