We probably want torrents for the videos.

Would be nice.

I've also been thinking about adding a structured format (e.g., JSON) to video.f.o that describes all (or most) of the videos available (with at least their title and subtitle, possibly also a description etc). This would allow things like a kodi plugin etc.

We already have the schedule xml - imho makes more sense to add extra video information there.

That would work, but requires more work for clients to get all the data. On top of that, would make it harder for us to update metadata for past years where it currently doesn't exist.

I think adding a parsable file on video.f.o is easier. It is also what most other conferences do.

Comment from @markvdb in #83

Plus metadata. Should be watchable through this, in web based viewers, popcorn time style. Should be a nice example of legal torrents use. A nice FOSS "services" example too, a frontier area really of FOSS software.

The nec plus ultra as far as I'm concerned should be a way to watch FOSDEM videos online without real central server infrastructure except for one of us serving the torrents from a home file server as the last resort...

Peertube would be fun too, but all of this is wishlist really. Whoever reads this, feel free to implement it. Ask server@ for a vm to fiddle with it.

Another option that @RichiH mentioned was to look for suitable instances that could host FOSDEM video.

I compared a pile of peertube instances. https://framatube.org/about/instance looks like the most suitable one. It's hosted by framasoft, the peertube developers. Framasoft is a non-profit focused on free software. They've been around since 2001 and seem to be as energetic as ever. Their instance seems to be one of the healthiest, in terms of uptime, following instances, and total number of videos hosted.

Thoughts?
