I've settled on a format for the edited talks that I think works. To be clear, I'm not chopping these up as I do the DConf Online talks to remove the pauses, uhs, ahs, etc. I'm letting the whole thing go from beginning to end just as if it were live. What's different from the livestream version is the layout.

My goal is to ensure the slides are visible, while not focusing on them entirely, and cutting to the slide view at what seems like appropriate times (as opposed to the random cuts in the livestream).

I've uploaded the edited version of Walter's talk and left it unlisted. Before I make it public, I'd like to ensure there are no major issues with it. And let me state beforehand: by "major", I mean major.

I really, really don't want to go back into the editor with this unless I absolutely have to. As long as the audio can be heard, and the slides are legible when they need to be, then I'll be happy. I'm not going to do any minor touch ups or changes. I only want to know if it serves its purpose.

If you haven't seen Walter's talk yet (or would like to watch it again), please give it a look and let me know if you uncover any major problems:

Looks like high quality work. I jumped over a few topics but I saw nothing that needs to change.

Also note that the first 3 1/2 minutes were never streamed before as the live stream started a bit late (though not much new in it).

Mike you added all the highlights?! You went above and beyond there!

Looks good to me! If I were to suggest something, put the dconf logo in the gray gutter, and maybe the talk title when doing the split screen. But understandable if you didn't want to go back and do that.

I suggest boosting the audio as much as you can before it starts clipping. It's currently a bit low.

Yes, I did. Thanks! I did the same thing for the DConf Online videos last year. Makes it easier to follow.

I tried that using the same background we used in the livestream, with the logo in a different position, and with it somewhat blended into the background. I just find it too distracting. My eyes keep drifting to the logo.

Ugh. It sounds fine to me. It sounds louder to me locally than on YouTube, but it doesn't sound bad to me there either. I already boosted the volume just below the clipping range. I'll see what I can do with the additional settings in the audio editor.

Well thanks for trying but I think the main problem remains, as I pointed in here: https://forum.dlang.org/post/zkfmlbzmxlrqwnugrdid@forum.dlang.org

I usually watch videos at work (During interval) using my personal phone/internet, and watching as (https://imgur.com/1LeGPRd) two small texts of the same thing with visual impairment is tough.

My tip is for the next DConf, people in charge of recording should watch all the previous Conferences and take what went right (The conference at facebook was well done), because this was new to me, usually when the slide is *NOT* presented on the screen they show it in full for a few seconds or when the presenter is explaining, this way was very weird and the first time I see this.

As for the sound, I have no complaints.

The edited version is still too small? It's only slightly scaled down from full size, and larger than it was in the livestream. I don't have access to the video stream of the slides, so I had to export Walter's PDF to JPEG. They all came out square, and I scaled down only 15% in the video.

Are you still talking about the edited version? I tried to time showing the slides when he's actually talking about them, and for the code snippets I highlighted the lines he's referring to. I didn't like the random switching in the livestream (which is what the recorded version is), which is why I decided to edit.

Hi Mike, yes through this URL: https://youtu.be/iuP-AWUyjp8

I watched the first minutes because I'm at work, but I saw the same thing as before, I'll take a picture later to show the problem if needed, I just can't do it now because I'm at work.

I don't like either, and in DConf it wasn't even needed to to that since the slides was already fully visible through the video, my problem was the size when in split screen mode with 2 small texts while watching on my phone (Which is watch I use mostly), and with vision impairment it's tough.

By the way, is there any recorded version with that same camera from far behind without any edition (ie: split screen)?

Thanks,

Matheus.
