screencasts

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sat Dec 21, 2013 9:55 am

I have in mind to make the Help document for M12x be a YouTube video rather than a written document. It would just be voice-over desktop movements, probably having a number of 4-5 min sections (tour, panel, menu, etc.). Would be opened with minitube off a panel link.

I think some people on this forum have tried that sort of thing, so am asking: what can you say about
--software (recordmydesktop, wink, etc.)
--production (scripts, preparation, etc.)
--experience
--tricks/tips

BTW: it would be great (shades of Silver Bear) to hear from anyone interested in being involved with such a project! I already have a lot to do, and would love to turn this over to someone who knows how to do/organize good work on time and to spec

I think vokoscreen is a better choice for software. For Mepis you will have to get it from github and compile.

I see ATM a sequence of short (4-5 mins?) videos spaced out over the next, say, 6 months. starting with the release of the first alpha in a couple of weeks. Just guessing for now, here is an idea of the sequence:

Phase 1 "Broad strokes"
--"What, who and why?" (I would provide a script of sorts)
--"Once around the desktop" (are existing videos that can be used for inspiration)
--"Get it working!" (=configuration in the Users Manual)
--"App intro" (especially the browser midori)

Phase 2 "Components"
--Panel
--Desktop
--Menu
--Customization

Phase 3
--more technical topics as they occur (?)

I am thinking they all carry the same title so they can be found as a group in YouTube, something like "Mepis 12 Xfce" with a subtitle attached for the individual sections.

Do you have time and interest? With your experience in this area, it would be great to turn it over to you.

When you get the videos done and on youtube, they can easily be added to mepiscommunity.org eg:http://mepiscommunity.org/video-tutorials
We could create an Xfce section giving you an easy link from the forum to the videos.
