Why aren't they available at least *also* in formats using Free codecs
(webm / theora / ogg) ? Preferably they should even be available *only*
using Free codecs!

The most important part of the above message is that GUADEC videos are
actually available!
I was really uncertain if this would happen or not, based on experience
of so many previous GUADEC's where we did recordings but failed to
publish them. I was really 50/50 on it and didn't want to make any
promises to people who asked about it.

A big thank you for everyone who made this happen!

Yes! The recordings were done in previous years but the breakdown was with
the video processing. The fact that these were done so quickly is so

I would add that making the videos available in a free format was one of
our initial requirements.
