All SteemFest presentations chunkified and ready for sharing, TRFund paid and more.

in #steemfest2 years ago

After 1 week of chilling in Portugal, spending time with the family we are now about 1.5 weeks back in Netherlands.

It's (almost) freezing here, but it is also great to be back. I handed in my computer on warranty so my little beast and workload was downscaled to a barebones raspberry pi for a little web browsing and my witness duties / server management, for which those little devices are actually great. Additionally I spent time to do some Zigbee light hacking on the same device, so we can now turn our toiletlight into a disco thanks to an IKEA tradfri LED color bulb.

35 Presentations of SteemFest now available on Youtube.

Via the Raspberry Pi minicomputer I also managed to cut up the 4 single file recordings of 20 GB each (2 days, 2 rooms) into 35 presentations / shareable youtube videos of all presentations at SteemFest.

For this task I had some help from a more powerful devices: I installed FFMPEG on a server, downloaded the four 720P original recordings / videofiles from @shourai's (livestreamer) CDN and had the videofiles timecoded via OMXplayer network streaming on the Raspberry Pi, and writing down all the starts & stops. Next, put all those starts & stops in a Gsheet, exporting that to TSV file, ready to be munched by a small bash script to handle 'input & output' file with timecoded start & stop:

IFS=" "
while read id room day infile outfile timestart timeend venue title users timetabletitle img;
echo "/usr/bin/ffmpeg -i ~/steemfestvids/$infile -ss $timestart -c copy -to $timeend ~/steemfestvids/$outfile"
done < sfvidsched.tsv

This resulted in 35 presentations. Then I spent a couple of hours trying to add a preroll, without the need to re-encode all individual files, which I somehow managed last year, but forgot how, (hence I am now documenting this :P) so I gave up because it was just grabbing to much time. I tried to cat, I tried to cat with ffmpeg, I tried ffmpeg's concat feature but all ended up with having the audio being lagging. I really didn't want to go the 'reencoding' way as that would take up so much processing power.

After the cutting I had another nifty cmd line tool installed: Youtube-upload which does exactly what it says. I used the TSV file again, to auto add the titles and descriptions (taken from the SteemFest mobile app) to the individual video files.

Here are all presentations in 1 playlist on youtube:

@T-R-F paid out. 4000 SBD and 5000 Steem distributed.

Additionally after a reminder 1.5 weeks ago I wrote the script to pay out all t-r-f funds, there is just one person not being paid out, medicine man, as there is no such user on Steemit. There were many more applicants then last year and a little less funds to share, and many more people from far away applying, so in the end the per-person and per-mile returns where lower for all, but still we managed to distribute about 5000 steem and 4000 SBD to about 135 people if I am not mistaken.

Anyone who received funds should thank: @knozaki, @benjojo, @blueorgy, @edb, @hitmeasap, @walterjay, @ausbitbank, @jesta, @ericvancewalton, @kevinwong, @firepower, @lichtblick, @mariandavp, @skapaneas, @shenanigator, @gtg, @timcliff, @good-karma, @gringalicious, @arcange, @furion, @ballinconscious, @steemfest and @roelandp for their donations to the reward fund.

Steem talk @ National broadcaster BNR (business news radio) - 1 hour podcast (dutch)

About 2 weeks before SteemFest I was for a good 7 minutes live on national radio talking about the event and Steemit and the presenters asked me back for their async hour long dedicated podcast when I had more time. I figured I would have some after the event so you can now download and listen to me talking 1 hour in dutch about Steem, Steemit, Vests / SBD / Steem and rewarding content.

One of the main takes / feedback I got from one of the presenters was: Medium is really great for content discovering, 'staff picks' works wonders, and he missed that on Steemit. In the talk I give extra attention to SMT and a shout out to as well as Steem World Map.

Podcast recording (in dutch)


other news --- still need to find time to go out for a kitesurf. Has been 5-6 weeks now since my last surf session... But the water is very chilly already now, and especially outside. But hopefully this week!

Ps. Did you attend SteemFest? Please find a request for feedback (via a form) in your email inbox pretty soon.

Thanks, have a great week, Roeland.


Way to go Roeland! Can't wait to work together at the next event! :)

@firepower Well you have chosen the right partner 👍 I am also a fan of it .🙄
Respect @roelandp

Hi @roelandp!

We recognize you as one of the primary leaders of Steem.

We see that Steemit would benefit greatly from a upgraded system for clarifying and preventing High-Stakes Abuse.

We bring to you an idea, a solution; Introducing the Steem RewardPool Protection Guild.

The idea is relatively simple. Everyone who joins the Guild gives 1 vote each day (automatically distributed) towards flagging the most prevalent abusers on Steem. By joining the RewardPool Protection Guild you obtain a weighted vote (proportionate to your steem power) that gives you a direct voice in what EXACTLY steemit abuse is, and which steemit abusers we will target first.

Please explore more details in our posting;

Let us know if you have any questions! We would love to collaborate with you in making Steem even better!

I did a video of my short talking. It was not so good so I added the text to the video.

Thank you sir @roelandp for the videos. It will surely help us for our upcoming Second SteemPH UAE Meet and Greet on Sat, 28th April.

More power and God bless! ☺️

Hello sir i made something that's looked beautiful and eye catching please watch my art

I will quickly learn Dutch because I really want to listen and understand that podcast :-) Great job promoting the platform and relevant projects, Roeland!

Also thanks for putting all the presentations together! After Steemfest I've been talking to a lot of people about the content, and sometimes you just want to jump over to one of the speeches and quote a statement that especially touched you. Now that's much easier - cool! :-)
Loved and resteemed

A great day to everybody!

Really nice and correct information but want to know how you really you can be exponential in your growth.After reading your article didn’t find how to fix and have win situation

GREAT JOB @roelandp!!!

Thanks a lot for sharing this information that is now going to be part of our common history. Looking forward to meeting you next year for SteemFest 3.0!!!

Namaste :)

I agree with @firepower. I totally agree and I can't wait until the next one.
And, I look forward to the possibilities of contributing more. Again, thanks for everything @roelandp

I couldn't believe what I was reading. ALL THAT on a raspberry pi? Really?

I think I'm impressed as much as you were when you did it all. I don't think most people would have even attempted to do that..

Sure, browsing, checking email, no problem on a pi...

I had some help from a more powerful devices: I installed FFMPEG on a server,

...yes, you did.. but the Raspberry Pi was your command terminal for everything and it didn't seem to slow you down very much at all.

I've never heard of someone using it as a complete workstation while their computer was in for warranty repair before. Very interesting.

...and then to hear all the work you were doing too (re: Steemfest)... you're a power trooper when it comes to work! :)

sir it is good

Danke schön!!!!!! Es war wunderbar!!!

"Danke schön, Ice War Wunderbar!'
