UPDATE: Seel also these excellent and more complete hints by speakers and devroom managers:

Dear FOSDEM speaker,

Regarding the video recording of your FOSDEM 2021 presentation, we have some practical hints and technical requirements. Feel free to make generous use of the hints, and please follow the technical requirements as closely as possible.

Practical hints:

  • really helps.
  • Please don't overload your slides. Make sure everything is readable when scaled down slightly. The 1280x720 video you send in might or might not be scaled down to fit onto a FOSDEM template!
  • Please make sure your video presentation fits into your assigned timeslot with room to spare for q&a. FOSDEM 2021 works on a strict broadcast schedule. The system will ruthlessly cut you off at the end of your timeslot!

Technical requirements: Please adhere to the following technical requirements for your FOSDEM 2021 presentation video:

  • resolution: 1280x720
  • frame rate: 25 fps
  • video codec: h264 video codec, main profile
  • video bitrate: <= 2Mbit/s
  • audio codec: aac audio codec
  • audio sample rate: 48 KHz mono
  • audio bitrate: 128 Kbit/s
  • media container: mp4
  • maximum file size: 1 Gb. If you surpass this video size, your upload may fail, and the result will not be deterministic.

The upload system will verify that you did indeed follow the above constraints. If you didn't take them into account, the video should be transcoded first. This will take longer.

Upload: You can upload your recording through . You will find an upload link there for each event.

Kind regards,

the FOSDEM video team
