I'd like to start a new project that would require a large amount of encoding help.
I want all obsolete movies to have at least 1 streaming link. For most of these movies either the old AVI is unavailable or substandard anyway so re-encoding them would required or preferred.
Also, I would like to have an encode provided for all unpublished (but serious) submissions. The priority would be on submissions rejected due to goals or game choice.
In addition, we have a HD project in which we are trying to have a high quality streaming link for all publication (ideally including the obsolete ones). The point of the HD is specifically for nicer looking streaming not for the "official" encode.
Needless to say this is all a tall order and can't be realistically done with our current active encoders so I'm hoping to inspire new encoders (and old encoders). We have resources for encoding:
In addition I and other publishers would be willing to work with people in helping them learn the ropes.
Also, I will have intend to have an encoder forum rank added and I was considering adopting some kind of "encoder points" type system (opinions on this idea are welcome).
