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.

If you haven’t noticed, try importing a photo into Kaltura – you’ve got options to import from Flickr, Photobucket…and the NYPL. This was actually our first experiment with exposing metadata via a simple JSON API and enabling creative use of NYPL’s digital collections…

Oh, wow, I hadn’t noticed that! Too cool! Okay, I am totally exposing our digital photos that way too. Oooh, and video! We could expose our video that way, I bet. Thanks for the tip, Josh.
