Videos of the Embedded track at FOSDEM 2012

Better late than never: we finally found the time to update our video encoding scripts, and therefore encode and upload the videos we had taken of the embedded track at FOSDEM 2012. Amongst many other interesting talks, you’ll notice two talks given by Bootlin engineers: one by Maxime Ripard on the IIO subsystem, a kernel subsystem for Industrial I/O devices, and another by Thomas Petazzoni about the usage of the Qt framework for non-graphical applications in embedded Linux systems.

  1. Hi,

    I thought that the recordings of the embedded track was lost, so this was a nice surprise. I’m a bit curious though why only the first half of the OpenRISC presentation was included.

    1. That’s a good question. I just checked once again all the raw video files that I had from FOSDEM 2012, and unfortunately, it seems I have only this part of your conference. It’s been so long that I don’t remember if the camcorder had a battery problem, if the disk was full, or if it’s simply an incorrect manipulation on my side that led to this file being lost. Interestingly, the raw file that corresponds to the first part of the video is not exactly 4 GB (the camcorder cuts file at 4 GB to accomodate the limitations of FAT32), so this suggests that the camcorder stopped recording.

      Unfortunately, I think I can only conclude that the last part of your conference has been lost 🙁 Sorry for this.

      1. It’s okay. I will be remembered as the evil guy lurking in the shadows 😉

        Good work anyhow. Looking forward to catch up on some of the interesting talks that I missed last year.
