Encoding and uploading video help page
There are many, many sources of help for preparing and hosting video on the internet. Unfortunately, none of it is entirely straightforward, so this wiki exists to list and sort the latest and most useful help files, as they evolve and improve.
One of the most user-friendly is EngageMedia's guide to digital video distribution
From the beginning advice can be found at 'Make Internet TV' Participatory Culture's "step-by-step instructions for shooting, editing, and publishing online videos that can be watched and subscribed to by millions of people." They also have a super simple guide for people who are feeling overwhelmed.
A key location for ongoing evolution of help files is The Transmission Network's Video_distribution_Documentation_project. If you have the skills, tools and presentational inspiration, please, do join in!
Another wiki project to document free video softwares is the WikiBooks Introduction to using Open Source Tools for Video Production and Distribution
These projects are feeding into the more user friendly FlossManuals Free manuals for free (as in libre) and open source video and audio software.
