SignWriting List
April 11, 2007

This is great news. What an amazing service YouTube is providing to  
the world!

Maybe you all can make a decision, how you want to use YouTube here  
on the List, and also for specific DAC editing tasks.

Three different cases...

1. Here on the List we need the videos for viewing individual signs  
we are discussing

2. the DAC needs to view longer videos for editing documents...

3. There is a place in SignPuddle 1.5 which allows for uploading  
videos that are connected with the dictionary entries...but I am  
concerned with our own web area not having enough bandwidth for a lot  
of video uploads...or at least it will become costly for us over time...

Steve - is there a way that we could really post the videos to  
YouTube or GoogleVideo instead, but the link would be in our  
SignPuddle online?
