In this scenario what would be handy is the ability to stream through YouTube/Vimeo a version of the DVD WITH fixed audio that anybody can access from any internet connection on any OS/Platform without having to installing a suitable media player with built-in audio correction tools.
I’d like to also add that even if I purchased the DVD, it’s highly unlikely that I’m going to carry it with me everywhere I go, just in case I need to glean something from it. I can think of situations where being able to just point a browser to YouTube or Vimeo would be very useful.
It’s for these very reasons that I downloaded the torrent and manually fixed every single chapter in it, and then uploaded it to YouTube.
To explain why I’ve finally made the videos public, here goes:
1.) Pablo & the Blender Foundation chose to give Venom’s Lab a CC license, in order to allow folk to rework the files, content, and then use/share it. If they didn’t want torrents/uploads/streams to happen, they should/would have chosen different licensing. Sorry, but it’s as simple as that.
2.) A torrent for the complete DVD has already been active now for some time, so even if the clips aren’t on YouTube/Vimeo, folk can still go and get the entire DVD if they want… and I can’t stop them.
3.) I am only uploading the videos. I have not made available, textures, blend files, bonus materials or anything else - thus I haven’t offered up the entire DVD for consumption. There’s a lot that can be learned by having the actual blend files.
4.) I have contributed by means of taking a fair chunk of my time to correct and upload the clips - at my expense (broadband bill), so that in the spirit of Blender and CC-Licensing I have ‘tidied up’ learning material to improve it and help other users.
