[Wikimedia-l] Video Wiki

jmh649
Hey All

We have a new project called Video Wiki
<https://videowiki.wmflabs.org/en> which
allows:

   1. The easy creation of videos from scripts from Wikipedia and images /
   short video segments from Commons
   2. Scripts can have inline references and the text of the script with
   references end up in the captions of the video with references. These
   captions can be turned on and off
   3. At the end of the video it automatically adds
      1.  the license for the text (CC BY SA license)
      2. attribution of those who have edited the scripts
      3. all the metadata for the references supporting the scripts
   4. The final video version on Commons lists the files that the video is
   derived from
   5. Attribution for the images is automatically added at the bottom of
   each image


Have started a discussion here on Wikipedia and would appreciate peoples
thoughts. Will be drafting a formal RfC about the use of such videos
eventually.

Brilliant.  Long in the making, much needed.

And for branding, the website devoted to this should be called Wikipedia
Media...

Is it possible to add other languages if we have a free TTS system?

Yes definitely possible for other languages. It currently works in Hindi,
Spanish, French, and English.

Here is an example of one in Hindi

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Video Wiki

Jonathan Morgan
Could these videos be posted to YouTube?

In a recent talk <https://vimeo.com/album/5793528>, internet researcher
danah boyd makes the observation (around minute 15) that one of the
problems with conspiracy propagation in YouTube is that nobody generally
bothers to produce response videos to counteract disinformation narratives.
So people who use YouTube to get their "news" (<-- a HUGE number of younger
internet users) are never exposed to the truth around these subjects.

Many of us are aware that last year YouTube tried, somewhat
problematically, to link to Wikipedia articles in an attempt to counter
disinformation. But it would be even more useful to* insert factual
information into the YouTube ecosystem itself*. It seems to me that
VideoWiki tool gives our Movement a powerful new tool to counter
disinformation in a more timely manner.

Imagine a 4 minute video that pulls from multiple Wikipedia articles and
other WM data sources and which is designed to counter, say, a new viral
anti-vaxx video in a concise and engaging way. Before VideoWiki, this would
have been pretty labor-intensive to create. With VideoWiki, it seems like
we're close to being able to develop this kind of content in a much more
timely manner.

But to be effective, the video needs to reach the intended audience. The
best way to do that is to post it to YouTube, where that audience is. Hence
my opening question.

What do people think?

Jonathan

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Video Wiki

jmh649
Yes excellent idea. For everyone who is interested in the concept of wiki
based collaboratively built video add your name on meta
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Video#Interest

Still a fair bit of technical work to do. We want to create a work flow
were the text script and instructions for when images appear within a video
all exists within Wikimedia markup on Wikipedia.

Hopefully that work flow will be ready in a few months (maybe by
Wikimania...) We also want to get built a tool for commons that can trim
and cut video similar to how we have a tool that can crop images.
