okay, i sent our video coment project to JD Lasica over at http://Open-Media.org. I believe that this is the exact kind of stuff they are looking for. so our worries of bandwidth and storage really is becoming a non-issue. here's what he wrote today: Hi Jay, I talked with the Internet Archive folks sunday. Two things: - Yes, they'll store our video and provide bandwidth fast enough for serving video (I don't know the precise mps rate). The only restriction is they want stuff that's at least semi-creative in nature, not just shots of the family birthday or random people walking down the street. - they said they generally handle file sizes up to 2 GB per piece of media. Sound good? We can actually begin experimenting with this right away rather than waiting for the open media public website to launch in 4-6 weeks. If you're interested, lemme know. Can't do it this week (stewart's on vacation) but could as early as in a week or two. My answer, in short is: Let's try it and see what happens. jd _____________ 2GB files!!!! none of us make a file more than 10MB. haha so of course i said let us know the details. we could do a huge collaborative video project using this video comment system. maybe we'll get http://videoblogging.info onto their server. let's work the bugs out of the Andreas' player. we need to be able to jump around to each individual video. -- Jay Dedman Manhattan Neighborhood Network 537 West 59th NY NY 10019 212 757 2670 ext.312 http://www.mnn.org
