It may be old news to you, dear reader, but I discovered OverStream last night and was very impressed. It lets you take web video (say, from YouTube) and create caption streams for it, emitting a standard SRT file which you can then re-import into YouTube, all using web-based tools.( Video inside the cut.Collapse )
Help wanted: there's lots of video from Peru in my YouTube channel. You can create an account over at OverStream to caption it -- and if you send me the resulting SRT file, we can make this media more accessible to non-Spanish speakers.
On my last trip to Peru, I brought back a DVD of video material which Peru's Ministry of Education has created to document and promote their One Laptop per Child project. I've uploaded it now to http://download.laptop.org/content/media/P
The second Peru program (ogg) is a mashup of various press features on OLPC in Peru, starting with a very nice BusinessWeek piece (in English), followed by a piece for infordata.tv (subtitled in English), and ending with a piece for a Japanese program (at least that's what I think it is, I can't read the subtitles!).
More to come!
