Do you want video tutorials?
« on: December 05, 2021, 02:25:23 pm »
I am getting ready to start recording some of my projects running on Raspberry Pi computers and have my video capture environement ready, as the Raspberry Pi isn't powerful enough to both run my Pascal demos and record itself with ffmpeg.

This had me thinking, do you guys have any interest in Lazarus development related videos? I made a test video located below. If you're interested let me know and I may record some tutorials on specific topics and up the productions values. Let me know and I might move forward on this.

Here is an example:

Of course I could also self host this content, ensuring t never expires.

If your system cannot play the video, then this is the correct message. Apparently, you are missing some video codecs that you need to install if you expect to view this video and others like it. At a guess, I'd say that you do not have the AVC (Advanced Video Codec) installed. Use ffprobe to verify.

     Stream #0:0(und): Video: h264 (High) (avc1 / 0x31637661), yuv420p(tv,bt709), 1920x1080 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 5955 kb/s, 60 fps, 60 tbr, 15360 tbn, 120 tbc (default)
     Metadata:
       handler_name    : VideoHandler
     Stream #0:1(und): Audio: aac (mp4a / 0x6134706D), 48000 Hz, stereo, fltp, 128 kb/s (default)

I also tried to view the video and got same error. I'm on Windows 11.
While I am not particularly interested in watching videos, I think that for a purpose of tutoring you should make videos that don't request installing additional video codecs. It will probably repel your intended audience.

YES.  Simply YES!  I have been following a lot of your content from the stuff you post in the IRC channels and your web site at https://www.getlazarus.org/!  You have a lot of interesting stuff so far.  Keep it up and thank you!

I'm also getting an error message.

"This video is either unavailable or not supported in this browser. (Error #4000)"

Why not use YouTube or DailyMotion?

Video played fine for me by the way.  I am using Brave browser and Linux Mint with Cinnamon... if it is of any value to you.

And I agree with others, video tutorials tend to be usually only good for beginners.  The School Freeware Lazarus videos are quite good IMO.  Right to the point...

But I anytime I am trying to understand anything with some complexity videos tend to leave me with more questions or start to make me disinterested in the subject.  Some people that that are very knowledgeable and experts in areas make absolutely horrible video presentations! lol... We can't all be good at everything.

And the people putting videos out with no audio what so ever shouldn't even bother uploading!   %)

Like I said before, I am using windows 10 with what ever browser MS wants me to use, which I guess would be edge because they finally stop bugging me about using chrome.

 But it works for me.

After a bit of research, I've found the problem is Firefox does not support the yuv422 color space which is what my USB video capture box outputs. Conversion to yuv420 or other color spaces during streaming results in compression artifacts and other nasty things.

Yes, I can confirm that it works in Edge

FWIW, it also plays for me without any trouble.  That's using Chrome on Win 7.

Aside from that, very nice stuff @sysrpl.  Your video reminded me of Archimedes and Galileo :)
