Description (last modified by daira)

Video created by Josiah Gillispie, Great job and thank you for your help,

(3:32:34 PM) CyberAxe: Here's a good start, it needs some editing and glam but it's a good start. You can see somethings that need to be cleaned up like that error he created the ticket for show up over and over each time you run tahoe. I like at a few points he does what normally people will do and then runs in to a issue, then he shows how to solve/bypass the issue, for example copy/pasting CAPS line wrap and cause an error so he uses notepad to solve it.

  • Needs music (Something like other video, from youtube is fine)
  • Some basic editing (Remove recording software's banner on last frame, Add text between transitions)
  • Clean up of user's data so it doesn't show in video (Downloads folder shows user content)

Looks like a *great* start!

Can the resolution be turned up, or can the perspective zoom in so that people with very poor-resolution monitors can read the text?

The video should probably start with a description of the system-specs for the system that's being installed on.

Sickness made the point that the resolution should be turned *down*!

well since uploading a video on youtube is going to be a lossive process, text is going to be blurred, maybe lowering the source resolution to 800x600 or setting bigger fonts could help...

I agree, It's perfect for me at 720p and 1080p but blurry at 480p. So we need to fix that.

Also needs to state at the start of the video something like: Applies to Tahoe-Lafs 1.10.0? Applies to Windows OS: Windows 7 or Newer in both 32bit/64bit Windows Server 2008R2 or Newer in both 32bit/64bit.

I'll create a ticket to test each of these os's and setups, but I'm pretty sure we're safe in saying the above. I'd start to worry about older than Windows 7. But Microsoft has removed support for Windows XP and Vista already. Windows servers newer than Windows 2008R2 should work just fine.

Very early (perhaps before anything else) there should be a shot of the "About this system" window for the system. (Or whatever it's called.) The most informative one possible with the most OS version info (and hardware info) possible.

After tahoe-lafs is installed successfully, but before the backup begins, there should be a long screenshot of the input and result for:

tahoe-lafs --version

Is there any interest in pursuing this further?
