Wikimedia Commons already accepts sound and video uploads. Pratyeka (talk) 00:41, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

  • I think it still be short length, is not enough. (Nisetpdajsankha (talk) 15:25, 6 February 2017 (UTC))
    • It sounds like @Nisetpdajsankha: wants to develop a local program to facilitate the collection and upload of these kinds of videos. Do you have a particular audience in mind? Lobbying local governments to change laws and uploading the media to Commons are two very different projects? Would it make sense to refine this proposal into one part of that project? For example, I could imagine you working with local Wikimedians to help the regional/local government implement a policy that allows orphan works of a certain age to be uploaded. Or, their might be a really good opportunity to create a local outreach program, where folks bring their old videos to a library with video digitization tools, to upload them to commons. Both would work, but require vastly different resources and approach. Astinson (WMF) (talk) 15:57, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
      • If we have only wikivideo and sound, we can search only videos, otherwise wikicommons have mixture of files like this, it's difficult to search, features could be look like youtube some parts. (Nisetpdajsankha (talk) 14:58, 7 February 2017 (UTC))
        • Hi @Nisetpdajsankha: You can actually search different media file types: see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T156413 and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T150887 . The documentation isn't widely available yet, but that is not a very big change to the existing functions. Your general proposal right now, includes a number of different concerns or challenges: a) local copyright, b) features on Commons, c)digitization/process for sharing historical content, and more! I still wonder: What do you want to focus on? Who is your outreach audience? Neither of these are currently answered in the idea.Astinson (WMF) (talk) 20:06, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
          • They are common people, but if some videos have copy right law, We can stop them, some time the videos produce by Users or Video owners allowed to post, I think it should be possible, knowledge never care about what kind of people to know and share.
