AsiaBSDcon 2010 Papers & Video (sort of)

Contributed by jcr on from the great-papers-and-bad-video-sites dept.

The papers for the OpenBSD portions of AsiaBSDCon 2010 are available in the usual place, namely here.

From the looks of the full list of speakers and talks, there was plenty of interesting stuff going on at AsiaBSDCon this year. Sadly, someone who obviously doesn't eat their own dogfood put all the videos up on (a vicious Adobe flash-only site) and (a vicious Microsoft Silverlight-only site). There will be no link-love for them., SD quality (Adobe Shockwave Flash Required)

HD quality one (Micrsoft Silverlight Required)

I actually spent a couple days looking for a way to use OpenBSD to access the videos from the garbage, but failed miserably. On the bright side, in my failed attempts to flog into submission, with the help of sthen@ we did manage to build an update for the rtmpdump port and get a patch for it upstream.

      Thanks for the links Matthew. I'm very curious how you figured out those urls.

      Also, as you mentioned elsewhere, the format is a bit weird. This is possibly due to re-keying not being done. The rtmpdump port should be able to get around this issue and save the file properly.

      If people download the HTTP links above and see a spot where the video looks messed up, a bit of "fast-forward" and or "rewind" often gets things back in sync.
