GNU Audio and Video

 [A gnu listening to music]

Here you can watch video or listen to audio recordings of speeches and other events related to the Free Software Foundation or the GNU project. Many of these recordings are made by volunteers who attend our events and we thank everyone for sending them in.

Video recordings are made using the Theora video codec, and audio is typically the Vorbis codec, and WebM is a new format that can be used. This format still uses Vorbis for audio. Occasionally Speex is used instead, especially for low-bandwidth recordings.

Modern web browsers, such as GNU Icecat 3.5 or later can play these files natively, but more information for everyone is available at PlayOgg, a campaign of the Free Software Foundation.

All recordings are made available for verbatim copying and distribution, and many are also available under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 3.0 license or later versions.
