Hi All

The links to the resources are below, the shoetool, rewind and university of costumed heroes videos are all on the fsf website anyway, Just spotted the tedx talk, which I didn't know existed so I can add that to the dvd perhaps.

Not too sure where the creative commons video is I downloaded that one years ago. If this dvd resource is OK I can perhaps download the tedX talk.

The dvd iso is here on disroot it is 447 MB in size, it may expire Thursday Am UK time, as I don't think i set the expiration long enough.

I am not sure how to resize a video, kdenlive converted the downloaded video files to vob for me, (what ever vob is) and just walked me through making a title page which I had done before so understood the basic idea. They play full screen anyway or they can.

My main reason for doing this is that having them on a physical dvd I can play anywhere, the iso the same, right click, open in vlc.

Hope this helps

And if you can upload the "source" of your videos that would be even
better! :D

Do you have that iso available somewhere that you can share? I'd be
curious to check it out.

Happy to share just trying to figure out the best way to share it  it is
about 415mb in size, so I can upload to
which has a max upload size of 2gb and send the link over.

Then take it from there.


I have used kdenlive in the past for making dance videos
(, and it's legit stuff. At some point I
also tried OpenShot, but the performance was rather sluggish at the
time. With kdenlive that wasn't a problem, and there were also no
surprises in the rendered output in terms of the audio/video
synchronisation (which is important for dance videos, as you can

"DVDs may seem rather old tech"

You mean they're not pay-per-view streamed pieces of DRM shit? Yeah, old
indeed :)

         An old but ongoing battle.

     A good reason to pull all our resources together, so we can teach
     creative commons, free software, DRM etc.

     To this end, A few years ago I made a dvd with the fsf30, wanna work
     together (creative commons) 4 freedoms and what is gnu+linux (latter
     by Richard Stallman)

     I have just updated this to include the DRM video shoetool,  rewind
     university of costumed heroes.

     It is very basic dvd, made with kdenlive, I need to figure out how to
     use the software more, but for my first time ever using it, not bad

     I have attached a screenshot of the menu screen.

     DVDs may seem rather old tech, but the ISO file can be opened in vlc,
     and it acts as a dvd,  so there is no need to worry if there is no
     internet, poor connection, filtering etc,  if you want to watch or
     present a video it is possible.

     I have already put together a LibreOffice impress presentation for
     Mastodon, so will look at doing the same for free software, DRM and
     other stuff and put this on gitlab, but also save as pdf so it can be
     uploaded to big blue button.

     We just need people to teach now.  If the resources are there,  then
     that is 1/2 the battle I think.
