The final version of the Multimedia Vision 2016 was published in the February edition of WebStrategies . The vision document will be implemented in the new MediaWiki software version. In April, Fabrice Florin presented this vision to the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees at their April meeting. The Board approved it in principle.
In July, we continued to expand our multimedia team: Mark Holmquist joined as front-end software developer, working with product manager Fabrice Florin and engineering director Rob Lanphier, as well as contractors Brian Wolff and Jan Gerber. We prepared a first multimedia plan for the coming year and discussed our goals with community members in two separate events: a multimedia roundtable and an IRC chat. Based on community feedback, we identified five main areas of activity 2013-2014: improving the viewing experience and upload pipeline in the first half of the year, then focusing on file curation, discovery and placement in articles for the second half of the year.
The free version of the software is limited to a maximum of 3 projects. We would like to recommend the full version of the software as a good solution for our users. The full version allows you to upload projects. LedEdit is not only useful for the synthesis of video clips, but can also be used to record and edit images. The developers have created many examples to show how users can apply the editor to their projects. Some of the examples include examples of visualizations of music (using the guitar), examples of space flight simulators, experimental test rooms, or even a 3D virtual world.
The full version of the software includes the function of “movie export” that allows you to upload your video to Youtube and Facebook. You can also export your video as a motion JPEG, and to run using the built in player.
