Producing videos using DVswitch.
The process can be broken down into the following components:
- Gathering streams from one or more sources
- Mixing the streams into a single stream
- Saving the mixed stream to a file
- Editing the file
- Transcoding the file into something appropriate for distribution
- Distribution over Internet: live stream or hosted for later viewing
- /usr/share/doc/dvswitch/README.gz what the dvswitch components do.
- Component Interaction how the parts work together, typical configs of various complexities.
- Conference - It is not just a technical problem.
Exactly what you do will depend on what equipment you have and how much effort you put into it, which is often restricted by how much time you have and the environment you are working in. 5 people meeting in a coffee shop for 30 isn't very conducive to producing a good video, so you probably won't put as much into it as an 8 hours day of talks in a classroom setting.
- Event Volunteer - anyone can help, you don't need any experience with anything.
- Large Meeting - 1 cam, TwinPact100, 2 mics, Mixer, save to disk. sound mixer instructions.
- MeetingUpload - posting to blip.tv
- Inputs Started with dv hardware, but anything that can be turned into a dv stream is fair game.
- Installs How to install and configure.
There are a lot of things to explore and document.
