Hi Martin,

the GRASS GIS Story has already been uploaded by someone to Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3Hf0qI4JLc). Uploading it a second time won't do harm, but neither will solve some Youtube-related issues:

Youtube does not allow for advanced search queries on the movies' content: The version already available on Youtube can _not_ be found by the search queries like "GRASS GIS William Shatner". Further, there is no proper way to _cite_ the movie in a publication. In my feeling the movie has already become a historical document for the OSGeo community. In the sense of information preservation it would be good to have a version which long time preserved, citable and fully searchable.

In this vein, an upcoming presentation at FOSS4G 2014 in Portland (Scientific Track) will be of interest: "GRASS GIS, Star Trek and old Video Tape – a reference case on audiovisual preservation for the OSGeo communities" :-)


>any obstacle to upload GRASS GIS Story movie [1] (takes to much time
