Maintenance Updates

I’m now using Zencoder for rendering the Large, Small, and MP3 versions of the presentations.  So locally I edit and render the 1920×1080 version, then upload it and kick off a job with Zencoder.  It’s a nice improvement (although partially implemented) to the existing process.  Once it’s fully implemented the manual steps required once the editing and initial video are uploaded will be completely eliminated.

What’s Next?

My goal is to complete another 15 or so presentations by next Monday night, not counting the 10 that are rendering now.
