Welcome to the Transmission network Wiki
This is the working wiki of the Transmission network for documenting and collaborating on ongoing projects. There have been a number of other transmission wikis which are now deprecated. Please use this one for all new work, and migrate old work to here.
If you need help using wiki software, please consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
The transmission network home page is a Drupal-based CMS that aggregates various video collectives' news feeds and provides the public face for the network, briefly describing its activities and common basis.
If you would like to ask questions about using this wiki or the Transmission network, please try some of the following methods:
- irc.freenode.net, channel #transmission.cc (Internet Relay Chat)
- Transmission Network Mailing Lists
The main point of this network is to share work and information and help each other to distribute video online using free and open source tools. We need your help! The best way to help is to get involved in one of the working groups, or propose a new one on the discussion list. Each working group has a coordinator, you can find their contact details on the wiki pages below.
