Video editing tells how to edit yourself. This page describes how to check a video for processing.
The purpose of this page is to give video processing volunteers a starting point. CodeRefinery produces a lot of videos, and learner privacy is important: we can’t post videos until they are checked. These videos are mainly useful to the learners of the very workshop, so we need them quickly (and for every workshop).
Ask for the directory of videos. It is on Google Drive or something similar, but is not public.
Look at the tracking issue. Find a unclaimed section of the course.
Watch the video.
Carefully look for any appearances of learner video within the video.
Copy the template below.
Fill out the template.
Paste the answers into an issue.

Why do we ask all this? It saves time for the person who has to upload it to YouTube.
Title: what would it be called? You don’t need to include the workshop name, someone will add it.
Filename: you don’t need the full filename but indicate what file you were searching (often we have a recording and backup recording for each day)
Start, end: start time of the segment
Segments to cut: Segments which should be cut out. Don’t be strict, it is better to get it out fast than cut out every 3-minute break. But if there is a ~10 minute break or idle time, then we can cut it.
Audience visible: Time periods where any audience (not including staff).
Other notes for channel description: Describe the content of the video, include any links. You can think what is useful for someone to find this (but it doesn’t have to be perfect).
How small should segments be? First, it’s better for videos to exist than be perfect, so the 3-hour segment is better than nothing. Short lessons (1.5 hour) are probably fine to be at once, and long ones (git intro/collab) could possibly be each episode separately. Discuss with others to see what you would like.
Ideally, there are two videos from each day: one recorded by Twitch (raw dump of the stream), and one recorded by OBS/Zoom (local recording). The OBS/Zoom recording is preferable. You can tell them apart via the filenames.
