As we are in the process of recording the sessions, both with audio-only
recorders and full cameras w/sound for redundancy, we recording team
members have been debating the formats in which to make the results
available to the attendees.
The audio will be broken up into individual sessions and encoded in Ogg
Vorbis, because its an open format, and MP3, because many portable
devices on which attendees may wish to listen only support MP3.
The video is more problematic. The easiest format for which we already
have software encoders is Microsoft .wmv format, however its not an open
format, per se. And the format needs to be well-supported by multiple
With the video being rather larger than the audio, we may not be able to
store multiple formats on the webserver.
We'd like feedback from the attendees regarding their preferences. To
avoid flooding this list with "me too's", please send responses to me at
<jeff at taupro.com> and I'll summarize.
