Sylvain Le Gall has videos from OCaml Users Meetings through 2011. He has posted some from 2008 and 2010 on YouTube. Just adding these links to the videos page would be boring. Let's consider how to integrate them better. Currently oud.ocaml.org points to external pages for the 2011 and 2010 meetings, but maybe we should create an archive of past meetings properly integrated into ocaml.org.

What have you got in mind ? Archive them by year ?
Do you want to link/embed them or host them ?

We could have a "meetings" sub-directory, and then the following under that:

OCaml2010/index.html - containing content of
http://rwmj.wordpress.com/2010/01/14/ocaml-users-meeting-paris-april-2010/

OCaml2011/index.html - containing content of
https://forge.ocamlcore.org/plugins/mediawiki/wiki/ocaml-meeting/index.php/OCamlMeeting2011

OCaml2012/index.html - containing content of
http://oud.ocaml.org/2012/

For slides, we can put them directly on the web server (when it gets hosted
at OCaml Labs, right now we don't have a place for static media).

For video, I think the best solution would be to use a YouTube account that
is for official ocaml.org use only. All videos could be nicely organized
there and we can put links within the above pages.

The OCaml meeting videos are all already on YouTube (I linked them from the http://oud.ocaml.org/2012 program page). Best just link to those instead of mirroring them, so stats aren't split.

Why not store slides here btw? It should be ok to check in content to this repo --- github.com/ocaml is a paid account.

Okay, maybe we should leave past videos where they are. For future, it
might be good to put them under a semi-official account, so we'll have
everything in one place.

If there were just a few files, I suppose it wouldn't matter. Long term,
we'll have lots of files. I haven't yet asked Inria, but maybe we'll also
want to move the compiler tarballs to the ocaml.org server since the goal
really is to deprecate the caml.inria.fr URL.

The ACM takes care of the OUD videos, so they'll likely remain on someone else's account. I'll ask before next year's though, as I think Malcolm is the video chair again.

Even putting a lot of content in the Git repo sounds ok: it would be worth separating out the large static content into a separate submodule though, so we can clone the HTML bits easily.

Good idea. I'll look into configuring it this way.
