In the meantime Christian uploaded the files to audio-video. They have names like GHM2016_08_18VIDEO1.mp4.ogv.

Could you move them to a 'ghm2016' sub-directory, "clean up" the file names, and maybe add an index?

I have access to audio-video and would be glad to upload the files if they are made available by Christian.

I tried converting videos from older threads with ffmpeg but was not satisfied with the results and had no time to learn how to do conversion properly. So if the files are already in WebM/ogv -- please upload them somewhere public and let me know.

Hi there!

This doesn't show up on the Savannah task but Christian mentioned that he already converted the videos, so all we need is to upload them.

Could we coordinate so Christian can upload them or someone with access to audio-video downloads them?

Thanks in advance! :-)

Videos of this summer's GHM are available at <http://videos.rennes.inria.fr/Workshop-GNUHackersMeetings2016/index-WorkshopGNU2016.html>, but as MP4.

I was wondering if someone would have the time and energy to convert them to WebM or Theora and publish them on audio-video.gnu.org?

(Unfortunately I'm not offering to do the work myself.)
