Current / Ongoing
After a period of inactivity the team is gearing back up. These should be our first priorities:
Update the /ScreencastTeam/RecordingScreencasts page and the screencasts made from it.
- increase the teams visibility, letting people know we are active again.
- A review and updating of current screencasts.
Translation - Recruit more transcribers and translators to build on the number we already have. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MonthOfScreencasts/TranslationStatus / http://screencasts.ubuntu.com/Subtitle_Usage
Screencasting Screencast - (this is mentioned above)We get asked for a "how to make screencasts" screencast at most meetings. This needs to be made, based on our "how to screencast" wiki page (which also needs updating):- https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ScreencastTeam/RecordingScreencasts
Screencasts in Ubuntu - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ScreencastsInUbuntuSpec - This spec aims to deliver screencasts directly on the desktop within a robust but compact player. We need to see this through UDS with the aim of getting it in the next release.
Make things easier - Making quality screencasts isn't easy. We need to look at ways to make that process easier for people to contribute to.
- Break up the documentation into separate knowledge base how-tos
All in one screencasting - Somewhat blue sky thinking, we would like to spec up and help develop a desktop application which can perform many of the typical screencasting tasks over and above just recording screen activity.
- run initiatives to increase the visibility of the team
- Get them on the cover of Linux magazines
Get screencasts embedded in Ubuntu - See ScreencastsInUbuntuSpec
- Get screencasts translated (audio re-dubbed) to other languages
- Make screencasts available on CD/DVD
Month Of Screencasts - Currently ongoing (and overrunning) we need to finish the 30 screencasts for the MoS 2007. http://screencasts.ubuntu.com/MoS2007 / https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MonthOfScreencasts2007
