I was going through LXer.com for some news, found some curious gOS screenshots and then looked for a site that used to be available at osvids.org (IIRC) cause I was curious to see gOS in action. It appears osvids is no longer available, and searching for it I instead ended up at OSXvids instead, showcasing some stuff from Mac OS X Leopard.
And this gave me an idea. I know it's not a new idea at all and that some have already done this, like the Ubuntu Video project, but it's still not done so much to make it a really saturated "market" so to speak.
So the idea is to open up a Nuxified video site at videos.nuxified.com, where we would be posting very simple screen casts simply showing how to do things, even simple things, on GNU/Linux and with certain software programs. They don't have to have any audio except perhaps for some nice ambient music and it can only have some textual messages on it.
In addition to our own videos it would also display videos from other Free Software web sites all in one place, so it would be a mixture of both.
We can also encourage visitors to submit their own videos for inclusion and allow them to plug their blog or web site on it.
Videos can be hosted on YouTube, Blip.TV and similar sites just to save up some bandwidth, but we would offer people to view them directly from our server too. I even know how exactly to do this all using simply wordpress. It's brain dead easy.. The infrastructure is all really there. It just needs to be done and populated with interesting video content.
What do you think? Should we attempt something like this? It's a great way to promote "Nuxified" as the name and hence Nuxified.org and this great community! I've no intention to hide that ambition here.
