Kaltura for online video editing and publishing
In case Vertov wasn’t cool enough, Ryan Eby just told me (via twitter, my other new favorite toy) about Kaltura, “the first open source video platform.” It’s a neat service that allows you to upload video, edit it online, and publish it. You can even edit and re-publish content that other folks have uploaded. Everything uploaded is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike 3.0 license. OMG, I can’t WAIT to show this to our “Rare Materials Liberation Front” at the library.
For your viewing enjoyment, here is a video of Matt and me throwing a baseball from the Arctic to the sub-Arctic. Check out that beautiful Arctic scenery. I was able to edit this movie online, just shortening it a bit and cutting off the end. The video editor is slick, and has a very helpful help screen. Go play.
