Call for presenters - User meeting Colgne 2014
« on: July 29, 2014, 08:24:31 pm »
As already announced a user meeting will be held in Cologne on the 29th of November 2014.
The last meeting was somekind of surprise concerning the topics, as we did not know who and how many users would take part.

This time we know that quite a lot people are interested in this meeting and different users already declared that they very much would like to come. So for this time we would like to do a little organization in advance.
Some of the participants of the meeting in 2013 declared last time, they would like to do a presentation of something they are working on. We very much appreciated this announcement and do now ask to renew this commitment.

So Sigurd's and my (Thomas) questions are:

- who is willing to do a presentation and on what kind of topic?
- what kind of topics are the visitors / users interested in?
- who intends to visit the meeting?
- do you have any suggestions to be considered by us?
- ...

The meeting will be held in

http://koeln-riehl.jugendherberge.de/en/Portrait

Please consider to do your booking in time.

So far for now.
We are curious for your suggestions, comments, ...

Cheers

Thomas and Sigurd

Hi,

it is allways a pleasure for me to organize something with Thomas together!

I do have two Suggestions:

1. Especially fo those who do have a longer journey and do arrive on Friday - I would like to have a meeting wihtout topic, just to share fun and meet and greet in the Friday Evening :-)

2. I would like to held a lottery on Saturday, as I do have some OS/2 compatible hardware (Mainboard, Graphiccard, RAM....) that I would like to give away. The Fortunes will be free of charge, if someone would like to donate some money for the User Meeting 2015 he/she is welcomed :-)

Hi Thomas, Sigurd.

If it is not too much to ask, please try to get a volunteer to video record the presentations, take pictures and/or make a live IRC channel with some live video/audio streaming.
Since there is some time maybe you can work some things out. To make a live audio streaming can be as simple as having an Android/iOS phone connected to the local wifi.

Like always I'm interested on promoting this event and also sharing with the community any kind of material that this meeting can produce.

I'm also available for a presentation via WebConference using Skype or Google's Hangout.

Regards

Hi Neil.

There are several ones, sadly not of them runs on OS/2-eCS.
For example Google's Hangouts, Skype, Ustream... or with software like OpenBroadcaster.

Maybe the most easy way will be to have a Win/Linux machine connected to a Camera, and connected to the audio mic, and run a Google Hangout that shows at the same time (live) at YouTube.  https://www.google.com/hangouts/

From the open source side, I had seen more Linux lovers to use Jitsi - https://jitsi.org/  Or as a service https://meet.jit.si (but it only runs on Chrome).

The trick is to connect the mic and the Video camera to the computer streaming this, so the people connected can hear and see the conferences.

Hi Neil

Google's Hangout on Air seems to be very easy to use: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/onair

It will have to be streamed from a Windows/Linux box, but OS/2 users can see the video from the site with the Flash plugin.  I was just testing on Firefox 24 that I was able to see the video from that site with the flash plugin.

We can give it a try if we meet online.

Regards

Quite possible that it'll also work with VLC or MPlayer. Perhaps you can test?

Thanks Dave.

I'm just reading that you can stream your desktop with VLC - https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=117968
It will be interesting if it runs on OS2-eCS, but sadly we do not have the link between the WebCam driver and VLC (or am I wrong?)

Google hangout is proprietary and I'm not sure if VLC can be used as client. I will check around.
