Late-Breaking News: Smile, You're On Camera!

It's confirmed - through volunteer support, the conference talks will be 
recorded and posted on the Net for free! We're preparing diligently to 
ensure professional quality recordings. One more reason to pledge even 
if for those of you who can't be there!
=========

We have two volunteers who offered; I'm not naming them because I don't 
know whether they want to take the responsibility burden at this point. 
If you do, just reply to this!

I can recommend a backup recording. I had a talk of mine once that got video, but no audio, because the mike was accidentally left off. It was a smallish venue, so nobody noticed it was off. Heck, an ipod can do it.

That'd work fine. It doesn't need to be 320 bit quality!

You mean 320kbps? :~)

 Yup, AIUI mp3 was designed for voice anyway, that's why music 
 needs to be cranked up to ridiculous bitrates to not sound 
 shitty when you're using mp3 instead of a proper 
 general-purpose audio codec like vorbis or aac.

Both Vorbis and MP3 can be set as VBR (Variable Bit Rate), however I would think that's post processing; If possible I would think you get as high of quality as you can reasonably get, then downgrade it afterwards. If you got 50Gb of space for audio, why not record at 320kbits? Thank heavens for MPEG-4 (and AVC/h.264), otherwise video would still be difficult to transmit over the internet at decent speeds. If I attend and that's very likely (unless something huge happens... like my death...) then I would bring an external drive or two, meaning drive space during the recording and time there wouldn't be an issue; Although having a backup in case one of the drives fails seems important at that point (losing the only copy would be quite annoying to everyone).

And I'll bring a picture camera to take photos. Could also bring a recording device, incase the recorded audio on the video is poor :o) --=20 Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) =3D (c & 0x0f) + '0';

I will not be able to attend the conference but I did go for the 
lousy tshirt pledge.

I live in Europe and wanted to set the shipping address to one of 
my friends in the US.
How do you do that?

Gotta read the order confirmation email a little closer next time. It's all in there. /Jonas
