Weporter - first stage maps...
04/03/12 15:24 as a reply to marc barto.
As a first stage I would like to see a good openstreetmap/googlemaps overview of UK based video media. This could be based on something link the visionontv grassroots channel which already aggregates much of the vcideo media produced.

thanks Hamish,
maps would be a nice way to visualise spatial clustering of video content. It's an important aspect of looking at events. We could understand an event as a cluster in:
  • Space; where a video is shot
  • Time; when it was shot
  • Topic; what it is about

The first two points are ideal for an automatically generated visualisation, as this information is automatically added to the content upon creation. Third point needs some user commitment to do the right tagging etc.

I like the idea of a map overview. What sort of location data is in the video content of the Grassroots channel?

Looking at the feed http://grassroots.mirocommunity.org/feeds/featured it looks like it doesn't pass location data through? so this would be something to fix.

I think the RSS feed from the youtube has location http://www.youtube.com/user/visionontv so could experiment with that? While we think about how to do location on our feeds.

flash html5 popcorn youtube

I have been playing around with popcorn.js, I found it very helpful playing different video format on html5 supporting browser if we hold our own content.

I also manage to get youtube video to play on HTML5 using youtube plugin for popcorn. BUT the video which is coming from you tube is flash <object> youtube video </object>. which is not good because we are not using HTML 5 video tag , which would have given us more control. we need to find out if we can get youtube feed which is not flash.
