Dear All,

The At-Large Technology Taskforce (TTF)  maintains an At-Large
Technology Issues page at
which seeks to better document the technology issues experienced by
the At-Large Community which we can raise with ICANN staff and
document possible workarounds or solutions.

On the TTF call on April 18 2016, feedback was given to ICANN staff
regarding the issue of "the ability to export Adobe Connect recordings
from Flash only recordings to formats like MP4 which can be edited and
put on video sharing websites for easier resharing and more accessible
for the At-Large community"

This issue is important because Adobe Connect recordings in Flash are
unplayable on mobile and tablet devices whereas MP4 files can be
playable on mobile, tablet and PCs. Also, playing an Adobe Connect
recording on a PC with Flash installed is cumbersome compared with
experiences on video sharing websites like YouTube.

Based on the suggestions given by the TTF on the April 18 2016 call
(https://community.icann.org/x/UTmAAw), ICANN has configured their
Adobe Connect account to allow for ICANN staff (at no additional cost)
to export Adobe Connect recordings to MP4 format.

At-Large Staff are currently testing the process to convert Adobe
Connect recordings to MP4 and to upload to Youtube. Here's the
recording of the At-Large Technology Taskforce conference call on
April 18 2016 on YouTube


This is a step forward in making the work of At-Large more accessible
for viewing on multiple devices, and more shareable with the wider

Kind Regards,

Dev Anand Teelucksingh
