Thanks a lot for the videos.

I got all of them and tried to mirror them to my website but 
unfortunately it seems Free does not want me to upload files bigger than 
80MB (yet I'm supposed to have 1GB of space).

The sound is actually pretty good except for the questions but I'm not 
sure much can be done about it (or at least I would not know how to fix 
that). The video is quite grainy, so applying a denoiser can help if 
someone decides to reencode them (perhaps as part of the sound work). 
Another solution is to denoise them at playback with:

    mplayer -vf hqdn3d xxx.avi

Some appear a bit fuzzy too but again I don't think this can be fixed, 
the webcam's focus was probably wrong. The other issue I've noticed is 
that some take a long time to start, almost 10s, at least in my version 
of mplayer (1.0-pre7-0.0). The ones I'm having trouble with are:


But they play eventually so it's ok. Just be patient if it happens to 

Finally, for reference, here are the md5sums for the files I got. Let 
me know if one of them is wrong:

Overall it's very cool to have the (almost) full WineConf video 
archives, especially for me since I missed part of it. Also it's the 
first time they are available to everyone.

Many thanks.
