I got the trial version of Morae Manager. Apparently, Morae is composed of three apps. Other than the Manager, it has a "Recorder" and an "Observer". The Manager is in charge of analyzing, graphing, and presenting the data. If I understand correctly, Morae is split in three apps only because they are sold separately. In other words, we do not really have have to split our app into three ;)
After testing the Morae apps, I'll come up with mockups made with Balsamiq. I hope, everyone's comfortable with that software so we can exchange Balsamiq files. After all, they give free licenses to open source contributors (that's how I got mine :D)
It would be nice if our project can already have a home. Something upstream would be nice so everyone can be comfortable. For now, let's think of a name for the new project. I'm thinking of something that will give people the impression that it's built to be the bridge between devs and typical end users. hmmm
Btw, who else is interested? Everyone's welcome. :D

I don't know how to set up anything on gnome.org too. It would be nice if someone sets something up or shares/gives access to an existing one.
I got a trial copy of Morae. I'll go back to it later.

Good thing I can try Morae for free! I'll test it when I already have
the access to Windows.
thinking about as well - there is a format called 'CMML'  with which
you can set timestamp-based markers in video. You can set these markers
using gstreamer. But we don't have players to understand them. I was
thinking it would be awesome to be able to set markers in the video file
(eg. task #1 starts now, task #2 starts now, point of interest A, point
of interest B) using the CMML format, and then opening up the video in
totem and writing a totem plugin so that the bookmarks show up in the
totem sidebar and you can click on them to jump through the video. Or
when rendering the video you could use them to render the video into
chunks based on the bookmark.
Is this something you can set up and share and give access to? Can I do

something upstream at gnome.org.
it? What do we need to do?
