If you want read, then Wikipedia is there. But not to worry now even if you want to see and listen it speaking, then too Wikipedia is still there. The latest updates stolen from the organization behind Wikipedia, it is about to launch an editable online video encyclopaedia to enhance the ongoing textual link. The step is to be taken with an expectation that it would bring a new fervour to the popular URL and even a kick-start to the content providers. The videos are expected to cover all, starting from the public broadcasters to the music industry, so that better videos may hit the public domain
So if counting from then it would take almost 3 months, and after that the person sitting on the editor’s seat will be popped up by an option saying “Ad Media”. And after clicking this option the editor will be transported with an interface allowing her to search for video–initially from three repositories containing copyright-free material–and drag chosen portions into the article, without having to install any video-editing software or do any conversions herself. And the whole crux will result in just getting you the video, worthy of a click.
Also Wiki has different plans for the coming future. It has planned that it will facilitate the users to surf over the whole World Wide Web to get the best importable video. Also tools would be provided so that the user may edit, add to, and reorganize the clips within the Wikipedia website. The procedure will be similar to the present textual style.
“To have people be able to go in and annotate your video, edit your video, and improve upon it–in the same way people have been doing to your text posts–is pretty outstanding, and will create an audio-visual representation of our world that will rapidly become as definitive and collaborative as Wikipedia is in the textual world,” says Peter Kaufman, executive producer at Intelligent Television. “That may just be the holy grail.”
The new start-up tool will be the Internet Archive, which clenches 200,000 videos, including documentaries, interviews, and oddities such as 1950s educational clips. Also the other will be Wikimedia Commons, and from this you can grasp around four million media files, including many videos. And the third ranking source will be Metavid which holds Congressional speeches and hearings. While using this you may find closed-captioning text that comes with such videos that serve as a tagging system. This will help the user to surf and get the appropriate words from the speeches to be imported.
The prime source to Wikipedia’s video funding is partly supported by the Mozilla Foundation, who is also the founder of Firefox browser. Wikipedia has an instinct that any video passing into its pages be based on open-source formats. Also in future the Ad Media button will be also backed up by the option to find out the video links all over the web. Also Wiki feels that this step will motivate the content developers to give an exposure to their words and using the public domain. “Once people see how open-source video will get much more visibility on the open Web, it will motivate the content providers to jump on board–or miss the ship,” quotes Michael Dale, a software engineer working with Kaltura, A video-efforts oriented company that will be collaborating with Wikipedia
