Subject Apache/AOO YouTube channels/ video documentation/ captions
Date Thu, 12 Dec 2013 06:34:05 GMT
Hi folks,

I'm not sure if this is a doc or marketing question, so I apologize if I've
posted this in the wrong place.

I was just watching a video about documentation by an Apache doc writer ( ). The video is on the Apache channel.

Then I watched Rob's guide to adding anonymous diffs ( ). That video was hosted on Rob's own channel.

The automatic captions were far from accurate. As a regular video-based
learner and part-time captioner, bad captions is frustrating. Bad captions
also limits/prevents access to user and learner communities.

This left me with several questions:
1 Is there a specific channel dedicated to AOO docs or sharing other good
AOO videos created by others?

2 Who decides where the videos go or which ones go on YouTube?

3 Finally, to my greatest interest, is there any current effort to caption
AOO videos? Is Apache using Amara ( ) to cloud-source
captions like TED and Mozilla do? Or?  If there is a captioning plan, how
are the videos to be captioned selected? If there is not a captioning plan,
where do I look?

I plan on watching a lot of the Apache videos, and I learn when I caption.
I figure I can learn and help out users and AOO at the same time.

Direction, suggestion, or guidance is welcome.
