What is this about?

I'm not really sure what we're talking about here. Is this proposal to allow video upload or is it to limit video upload to 2 videos per article? If it is the first, then we can move on as video upload is already enabled. If it is the second, I don't think it's a good idea to limit the number of media that can be added to an article. There might be cases where more than 2 videos might be a good idea to illustrate the subject. Regards, --ChrisiPK 23:52, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Strategic ?

This proposal is not on topic.. strategy is what we are discussing GerardM 07:12, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

I disagree. In the case of this project, I like to think of this space as a "brainstorming" area. All ideas are on the table, initially. Then, we'll sort through them. I encourage all contributions that are in good faith at this point in the process. :-) -- Philippe 07:20, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Its a great idea! Viewing a video is (in my mind) much easier to understand than reading an article, even more so if there was video to support what you read on the article.

There would always be the problem of copyright if one tries to upload quality material. What I would want to see would be videos of people chatting to webcams on wikipedia.

And there are spoken versions and comics already! --89.178.219.205 16:38, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Three?... Four...?

Referring to Zero One Infinity, are there alternate proposals to allow three videos, or four, or even... five? It would seem this refers to either the capability to host videos (one or more) on a page. From a recent visit to a museum that for exhibits, had pictures, text, and video (as well as other interactive things that might not translate to a computer screen) this type of multimedia would be great. Perhaps each article topic could have 'text', pictures, and a 'video' mode, as well as, as previously mentioned, speech.

Summary

The author is unaware there already is video support so I guess he wants it to be a lot more easier.77.253.246.147 07:10, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Impact?

Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:05, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
