#75 Channel Fedora Brazil on Youtube
Closed 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by greysonsilva.

Hello, I request review and approval to carry out the creation of an official channel for the community Fedora Brazil in order to document on video how the community works, create tips and tutorials in order to increase use to further this renowned operating system and strengthen the Fedora community as a whole. In addition, video conferencing with community members via Hangouts, in the form of meetings and interaction with subscribers.


I appreciate your enthusiasm, everyone, but please let's keep the voting to Fedora Council members... otherwise the ticket looks confusing. Greyson, I assume from the keywords you mean to create a YouTube channel, and the hangouts part is about Hangouts on Air recordings that will be saved to that channel?

thank you for the informations. About your question, the answer is yes. Recorded hangouts will be part of the channel

Hi @greysonsilva,
I would be glad to help you maintaining this channel for whatever you need. I think this is a very important initiative. However, are you planning to upload the videos only on youtube? Or are you considering others platforms too?

Hi, @aaamourao,

Yes, I consider very important even to show that Fedora can do. At first the idea is to make the publications on YouTube and not even thought to another platform. Suggestions are welcome in this case.

My biggest question here is "why wouldn't this just be a playlist on the main fedora yt channel?" Is there value to separating the communities? Why wouldn't I, a US based guy, be interested in tips & tricks about fedora just because it was produced by a brazilian? (disregarding language issues).

We can do Both, but I think having a separate channel will be better for measuring the audience.

I believe you can get playlist stats just as well as channel.

While I like the idea of trying to outreach as many people and potential contributors as possible, I think we should try to get this topic into the right team, although I don't know if the video team is still active. Time ago they started with introductionary videos for various groups and published them on vimeo.

I'd really like to reactivate them instead of having local groups or teams publishing videos on youtube by their own:
1) The video team can eventually review and approve the videos
2) Video team already have videos available, we could try to get them translated
3) Youtube is a channel where you can find even bad stuff, and nearly illegal videos. Vimeo is probably less famous, but my feeling is that it is more professional.
4) The video team can work as a point of contact between different regions to share experiences and videos, acting also as a sort of Fedora umbrella over all the videos produced.

I'd like to see this worked by Marketing. I hope we can not try to centralize video production as it can discourage others from using the official channels and leads to more splintering. Especially if the group is less active or under-resourced. I believe instead that marketing can help coordinate this by both promoting the existing content and putting together specific suggestions for new content. These suggestions can be directed to the right groups for production/help. If we have general interest video people they can work with marketing.

Not to repeat myself fully, but this should be part of a larger social media/marketing strategy.

3) Youtube is a channel where you can find even bad stuff, and nearly illegal videos. Vimeo is probably less famous, but my feeling is that it is more professional.

This argument is akin to saying that the internet is full of bad stuff so we should go back to BBS's. If youtube.com is determined to be the best outlet for actually getting our content watched then barring other objections I think we need to use it. Professional sites full of unwatched content are just a resource drain.

4) The video team can work as a point of contact between different regions to share experiences and videos, acting also as a sort of Fedora umbrella over all the videos produced.

Sure, we can have it worked out by Marketing as discussed during the meeting. I just wanted to add some more arguments for anyone, even for marketing. Having a sort of controlling group, which can even be marketing, should be desirable, on which platform also is questionable and sometimes subjective.

@greysonsilva Did you take this to the marketing group? How did that go?

closing due to lack of response. Please open a new ticket if needed.
