University of Florida Video Archives Online

Some of UF’s video archives are now online. While most of the sports videos are in copyright and can’t be loaded online, there are tons of great videos that can be and we’re starting to slowly load them.
We don’t have that many yet, but what we do have is here:
I switched to the new name so that it was clear that these are UF Libraries’ archival videos, but I don’t yet know how to transfer the videos from the other two accounts, so if anyone knows an easy way to do this, please let me know.
Progress on loading these will continue to be slow because of the time involved. We’re processing for preservation (converting to a normal format, saving, and loading to UFDC for online access, and then saving to another format and sometimes editing for YouTube since the videos have to be under 10MB and under 10 minutes for each upload). It’s a long process, but it’s nice to see some of the videos up!

  1. Hi Laurie,
    I see you’re running into some problems uploading UF’s longer videos on YouTube. Would you like to join the other schools that have signed up to become Partners on YouTube? Partnership will afford you benefits like an enhanced channel with better branding and larger upload capabilities.
    Please let me know if this is something UF would be interested in.
