Valmiky said he would re-encode the video in order to make the audio
track use a codec favorable to free software, but we don't hear from
him since a year and a half ago.

I've decided to act upon this myself. I re-encoded the audio track to
Vorbis, so now the video specs are: "720p Theora/Vorbis Matroska
(779MB)", which I think is acceptable.

The video is available at
http://audio-video.gnu.org/video/#2012-02-29--rms--free-software-and-your-freedom

As there is nothing left to be done, I'm closing this task.

Hi,

Ok, I'll see if I can take care of it this week.

I am a part of the SINFO organization, so I can take care of this issue myself.

I'll update this task when available.

Thanks,
Valmiky

As per rms's second request ("Second, if you make an audio or video recording and you want to distribute copies, that's okay but only in the formats that are favorable to Free Software. Those are the Ogg formats and WebM. No MP3, no MPEG. Certainly not Flash." starting at 2m50s into the file) I think this video is going to require transcoding of the audio track which is in MPEG AAC Audio.

The file consists of three main parts: a Matroska container containing a video track and an audio track.

The video track is fine as-is. Transcoding the video is not necessary because the video is already in a format that favors Free Software--Theora. The container--Matroska--should also be okay as-is. Transcoding the entire file to WebM should end up altering only audio track by transcoding it to either Vorbis or Opus (both Vorbis and Opus are audio codecs that favor Free Software).

Perhaps Valmiky Arquissandas can get in touch with the people at SINFO and get them to distribute this video in WebM?

If these kinds of comments are unacceptable here, please let me know where they would be acceptable to post and I'll post them there instead.

Thanks.
