We will start the tutorial by explaining the current state of standards around online video - HTML5 video, media fragment addressing, subtitles, etc.
Then we will show off two existing sites that are publishing Ogg Theora video with extensive functionality: metavidwiki and pad.ma, the authors of which are co-presenters of the tutorial. You may get some ideas for functionality that you may want on your video publishing site and thus influence some of the later parts of the tutorial.
At the end we will show some of the more out-there functionalities around online video, such as player skinning, temporal hyperlinking, and in-browser video editing.
You are expected to work along with the examples and at the end of the tutorial have a rough video Website ready to go - you'll be left to do your own beautification using CSS. You will require a Linux-like environment with an installed working Apache Web server, and Firefox 3.5. Also install ffmpeg2theora if you can. There will be a more detailed requirements list available in the week before the Tutorial.
