Modchat Recap – 8/06

No meeting notes from last week, as not many mods were able to make the chat. Here is what we discussed this week.

  • State of queues – We had quite a few from the last batch of submissions that have problems of one kind or another. Also everyone gave much deserved praise to @sgelob (not present) for his work in the Pending queue last week
  • New “Pending Delete” queue in WPTV – Any unpublishable videos can be put in that queue, along with a tag for the issue (LOGO, NO AUDIO, etc.) I will prepare a monthly transparency report to post to our P2P2 “P2” is the name of the theme the blogs of use. When asked to post or view something “on the p2” by a member of the WPTV team, that usually means you’re asked to check, listing the deletes as well as the reason for them.
  • Upcoming camps – There are no US camps on the schedule for August. @roseapplemedia will have the camera kits in his possession all month, so a great chance to work on revamping camera docs.
  • Amazon Elastic Transcode – Still looking at options for automating transcoding, as well as looking at output quality.
  • Announcing new videos – We had a brief after-meeting discussion about how the Twitter account is doing, as well as some ideas on how we can automate notifying camps/speakers about new videos we publish. Starts here.

All in all a great meeting. Full transcript here. See you next week! 🙂
