Congratulations everyone, we survived another month! What better way to celebrate than to spend an evening with your favorite group of video engineers?! For anyone new, pizza and drinks will be provided and guests are always welcome, just make sure they either RSVP or you add them as a +1 so we can get an accurate head count.
This month's talks:
Steven Robertson (YouTube) - The saga of the VP9 deployment at YouTube. This is not a sales pitch but focuses on the actual roadblocks we experienced, the things we did wrong and learned from during the rollout, and the importance of "fake it 'til you make it" at any scale.
Adam Brown (Brightcove) - We got a few requests for someone to give a crash course on FFmpeg, so Adam was kind enough to oblige. He's the lead engineer for the Zencoder live product, and will run through basic to intermediate uses of FFmpeg via the command line.
Lightning Talks - 3 minute max! Looks like we've already got one volunteer, so anyone else that's interested get in touch. You can also come find me (Matt McClure) at the meetup if inspiration strikes you at the last minute.
Remote Stream - The guys from Live Talk (Andrew and Adam) have volunteered to live stream the meetup tonight as a demo of their app! Feel free to join us from there: https://livetalk.tv/vtech29july.
