Create a demo package - video

completed by: aergus

We need media material when doing presentations. You just can't show off MediaPlayer or Clockwerk without video and audio clips, ShowImage without images and file management and queries and attributes without a lot of different data files.

This task is for the creation of a video package.


We'd prefer to have a video buff that already has a couple of short videos (0,5 to max. 3 minutes long) and would give us permission to use them. Other clips can be added when you find some gems on the internet.  We'd like to have a wide variety of videos, so choose various topics for the clips.

Everything has to have a liberal license like Creative Commons that allows us to use it for demo purposes!


There should be 15 video clips in this package.

Keep a README file, listing all clips, their origin URL and license.

  • Clips should be of different resolutions from VGA to HD.
  • Clips should use different encoders, e.g. mpeg1/2/4, and containers, like mpg, avi, ogg etc.
  • All clips have to play well in MediaPlayer, i.e. are seekable, play smoothly without artifacts and low CPU usage.
  • Include at least one clip that offers SRT subtitles and more than one audio track.


It goes without saying, everything has to be in good taste, no sexist, racist or other controversial topics.
