Howdy All,

Just uploaded some yesterdays videos - not edited, these are just short comments from show 

TLDR; Please don't push videos to YouTube only, at least also upload to for accessibility and free formats availability. Put a clear
license on any material.

Hi Drew, all,

I'm my opinion YouTube's ToS are incompatible with several core values
of software freedom and the LibreOffice project specifically:

In the spirit of coherence with the LibreOffice project (ie. free, open
formats) and accessibility of such files, can we *not* upload them
*exclusively* to YouTube ? To me this is very much the equivalent of
publishing software under a non-free license, without its source code. I
see there's already one message in this thread asking how to get offline
versions of such videos.

I've raised this concern before, and wrote a guide on how to upload
videos to

I must emphasize I can't force anyone not to upload to YouTube only, but
by doing so you're sending a confusing message - that you and TDF and/or
any of the marketing team members, specially when doing so at an event,
agree to YouTube's ToS. It's also not ideal for anyone wanting to remix
/ reuse such videos.

With such limited resources any and all material we produce should
ideally have a clear license, include source files on a server where ToS
permit its free, unlimited, unrestricted use.

I don't mean to come across harsh, and I believe 99% of the time there's
only good intentions when sharing via YouTube but we need to get smarter
at this ;)
