Project ideaEdit

What is the problem you're trying to solve?Edit

I took about many videos during the Wikimania 2014 Conference in London (amounted to about 12 Gig of video data, including about 10 separate interviews in about 8 different languages from all continents)

These raw video footage are currently stack on my PC. I wish to share these raw videos for any interested to use.

What is your solution?Edit

Upload all the videos into a video sharing platform online (say YouTube), group all the individual interviews and or session videos into playlists, thus making downloading and or reviewing easier.

Currently, edited videos of the Wikimania 2014 Conference can be found at:

  • Wikimania 2014 Playlist: Link

Project PlansEdit


Upload 12 Gigabytes worth of videos taken during Wikimania 2014 in London, including about 10 interviews of attendees in about 8 varying languages.


particulars Unit cost ($) Result
Internet data cost, using MTN Ghana 3G 46 One month of unlimited data. Throttled after 35 Gig data is exhausted.


  • The goal is to create a central spot online for accessing and easy sharing of Wikimania 2014 videos and interviews.
