Hi list,

this is slightly off-topic - but only slightly, I think.
Yesterday I attended (as a lurker...) this meeting of the EmacsNYC


In it Sacha Chua said that she feels that most people, especially
newbies, have a hard time figuring out other people's workflows, and
that we should try to make short videos about our workflows and share

Long story short: I have a nice workflow for recording and uploading
short videos to my home page, and I made a 5-minute video about it. It
is here:


It uses eev, that can be used in conjunction with Org, but that is
based on design decisions that are very different from the ones in
Org. I gave a presentation about these design decisions at the last


I know only a handful of features of Org at the moment, and I don't
know (yet) how to translate the ideas of this method for uploading
videos to "pure Org", i.e., to Org without eev... I hope that someone
would find a way, and would share it with everybody. Also, I think
that it would be really, really, really great if more people start to
make their videos downloadable from places that are not Youtube; eev
has some functions that help downloading videos from Youtube with
youtube-dl - see:

  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91-9YfRPsuk#t=22m48s (demo)

but they're a bit clumsy... eev also has functions for accessing
videos at <http://angg.twu.net/eev-videos/>, and, faaaaar more
important than that, it has this comment in its source:

  ;; The definitions of `find-eevvideo-links' and `code-eevvideo' above
  ;; have strings like "eev" and "http://angg.twu.net/eev-videos/"
  ;; hardcoded in several places... it is easy, but not entirely
  ;; trivial, to create variants of them that point to other sites that
  ;; stores video tutorials and presentations in ways that are easy to
  ;; download. If you are aware of sites like that, please get in touch
  ;; and I'll create functions pointing to them!

So: let's create videos about workflows and videos about creating
videos about workflows, and let's share ideas and links!!!!

  Cheers =) =) =),
