If you upload one of our recordings, please

  • ensure that you provide all metadata especially the correct title, speaker names, licence and language.
  • disable ads for this video
  • If a file has multiple audio tracks, make sure the viewer can switch between both languages. This could mean that you have to upload the video twice.
  • check regularly if new subtitles are available and add them to both uploads

For the time between the talk and the released recording, some people store the live streams and provide these files for other users. If you upload stream dumps to video services like Youtube or Vimeo please remove them after a official recording was released.

Just to be clear: The CFP defines CC BY 3.0 as licence for the recordings. This does not cover the streams and thereby also not the streamdumps. This means the streamdumps are NOT covered by a creative commons licence.
