(Redirected from Flock/Volunteers)


Each 45 minute session needs to have a volunteer running the camera, watching a timer, and monitoring IRC for Q&A (if it happens).

There are 4 cameras. The workshop/hackfest sessions will not need volunteers, as most of them will not be practical to record or stream.

By signing up for a session as a volunteer, you're committing to:

  • Attending that session
  • Please get there at least 5 minutes before your session to start the video stream
  • Watching a timer and signalling the speaker (with signs) when he/she has 10, 5, and 0 minutes remaining.

If possible you should also try to:

  • Make sure someone starts meeting recording in the irc channel for your room (#fedora-flock-RRR) using (ie, #startmeeting sessionname)
  • Ask them to also gateway questions and comments from IRC to the room/speaker as needed.
  • Make sure they also #endmeeting when the session is complete.

NOTE: this person doesn't need to be you, just try and make sure there is someone.

You should not volunteer for a session where you are the speaker, or where you are giving a talk at the same time, or where you want to be in a separate session.

Just put your name beside the sessions that you want to volunteer for. Take as many as you want, but please, only one volunteer per session.

Remember, by doing this, you make it possible for the rest of the Fedora community to participate (and view for years to come). Thanks!

Transcription means typing the speaker's words and the questions and answers to the designated IRC room LIVE. If nobody volunteered for the transcription, just ask if anybody in the room would do it or do it yourself.

Video stream cookbook

(if anything goes wrong, call or text +420 605 83 17 13 (for free!) with the number of your room)

At least one minute before start of lecture, but even if the speaker is not present yet, do:

  1. Make sure two windows are open on your machine: Wirecast and Chrome
  2. In Wirecast do: Output > Output settings... and select the talk you are about to stream
  3. In Wirecast do: click Stream button above video preview, red light should appear
  4. In Chrome-YouTube: go to (you should be loged in as Flock Conference 2014 Prague) or click to "Live Events" in left menu and select "Upcoming" in "View"
  5. On YouTube: in row with the talk you are about to stream, click on "Live Control Room"
  6. On YouTube control room page: click on button "Preview" and OK in dialog, "Start Streaming" button should appear (the preview should be enabled as soon as stream hits Youtube; if not enabled, check steps 2-3 and refresh page)

Wait for the speaker to get ready, and after that and only after that do:

  1. On YouTube control room page: click on button "Start Streaming" and confirm dialog

If the speaker finishes, do: (note that you cannot start same stream again!)

  1. On YouTube control room page: click on button "Stop Streaming" and confirm dialog
  2. In Wirecast: click on Stream button above video preview, red light should disappear

See? Not a rocket science at all! Unclear? Edit! :)
