So I've watched it, and I love it.  Too bad cheese and istanbul don't
sync up better when recording or we'd have a very clever way to do a
picture in picture video to add sign language 'voice over' to videos.
But sadly I don't think we have out-of-the box video editing tools
which can scale and overlay video feeds like that.  We might be able
to do that sort of simple video overlay directly through gstreamer
pipeline manipulation but right now that is beyond me.  I'd need to
reach into the gstreamer guru community and extract knowledge from
them in small doses.

I'll make a promise. If people make the commitment to generate
end-user Fedora video content like screencast tutorials on a regular
basis, I'll make the effort to find gstreamer video manipulation
expertise to add to the the Fedora community to help generate higher
production value content over time.

Jeff,

Thanks for the kind words.  I think it was rather fun to do this and I'd like to do more!  I can say that I'll take the commands you recommend and see if I can't figure out what
the problem is so we can get it fixed wherever its happening.

I look forward to getting these kinds of videos out everywhere.  In fact, I was talking with my employer, Guru Labs, about doing some more videos in a more system
administration nature.  For instance, a simple video on how to do LVM and RAID together using both GUI and text tools.    Probably a bit longer and more in-depth, but
still fun.

Thanks again Jeff...

Cheers,

Clint
