Armadacon Archive: The You Tube Project.

Post by Spudgun » Mon Jul 04, 2011 7:28 pm

Now that I have Broadband, I'm in the postition to upload footage from the Armadacon Archive to You Tube. As much as I would like to upload every single frame that's held in the Archive, it isn't really possible. Hell, there's over 100 hours of it! I'm going to limit each video of an event that ran for around 30 minutes or less. This will include everything from the Opening Ceremony to the Closing Ceremony of any given Armadacon.

Now, it's well understood that there some people who aren't to keen to have footage of them in the public domain. To this end, the footage will only be available via links from this Forum, or from the Archive Website. If you went on the You Tube website, you won't find them as they're unlisted. This should preserve a certain amount of anoniminity. If required, I can restrict the videos further to people who have You Tube accounts should anyone request it.

The videos will be uploaded one Armadacon at a time (I'm currently working on Armadacon 22), but to be allowed to upload videos longer than 15 minutes, I've had to upload assorted other videos. As each Convention is completed, I'll send the updated Con page to Liz who can then update the Archive website. But for now, here's some random files for your enjoyment.

Right folks. This process may take a bit longer than first expected. This is because You Tube is being a bit random. At first, it would only let me upload videos of 15 minutes or shorter. Then it would let me upload longer videos. Well, I'm back to the 15 minute videos again. This has hampered completing any given Armadacon. I'll have to upload some shorter ones again and see if I can upload more of the longer ones.

Currently, I've uploaded 26 videos. There's still more to go before I send Liz the Archive Website updates (Might as well do things in one go). Anyhoo, here's links to some more footage in case you can't wait.

Right. I've found out why You Tube stopped me from uploading videos longer than 15 minutes. It's because I made all of the videos 'Unlisted'. I've now made all of the videos (There's over 30 at the moment) 'Public' and I've can upload longer ones again! At this time (bearing in mind the 30 minute limit) Armadacon 22 is complete and the relevent update is on its way to Liz. However, Liz will need time to convert the file and then upload it.

Since I've been forced to make the videos public (for the moment anyway), you can go to the You Tube site, put "Armadacon" in the search engine and find the uploaded files. I'm off to prep the next set of uploads.

Enjoy.

This is the final update for this month.

There are now over 40 Armadacon video files uploaded to You Tube. I can't upload any more until next month as I'll exceed my usage limit (and I want to use what's left for other things), so pop along to You Tube, enter "Armadacon" into the search engine and enjoy. Liz will be updating the Archive Website shortly where the Pages for Armadacon II and 22 will have direct links to the files for those Cons.

This project is going to take a fair chunk of time to complete. There's still over 100 files to be uploaded!

Just found this and I’m loving having the chance to look though it all.
"In fearful day, in raging night,
With strong hearts full, our souls ignite.
When all seems lost in the War of Light,
Look to the stars, for hope burns bright!"
