Open Video Alliance
A coalition of organizations and individuals devoted to creating and promoting free and open technologies, policies, and practices in online video.
As a medium, online video will be most powerful when it is fluid, like a conversation. Like the rest of the internet, online video must be designed to encourage participation, not just passive consumption.
eine interessante Produktion der OVA: Wireside chat mit Lawrence Lessig
This Wireside Chat with Lawrence Lessig is the first event of its kind to be broadcasted using only open technology and open standards. The event will be streaming in 100% free and open Theora into an HTML5 element, so you should use an advanced browser. The Open Video Alliance selected Flumotion as its streaming partner because it is the only advanced streaming platform that fully supports the open source Theora codec.
Flumotion—the software—started as a Free Software project, combining an innovative open source software package with GStreamer, the de facto multimedia framework on Linux. Thanks to its flexible and distributed design and its choice of Python as the high-level language for development, it is now the world’s easiest and most powerful streaming software and platform for open streaming.
Flumotion Services, based in Barcelona, is an award-winning streaming software company. Founded in 2006 by a group of open source developers and multimedia experts, Flumotion developed an open source multi-format video streaming software suite, closing the gap with existing competitors and making open streaming more accessible. Flumotion Streaming Software allows broadcasters and companies to stream content live and on demand in all the leading formats from a single server—and they are far and away the leader in open streaming.
