Libre Video launches!

Welcome to Libre Video, an online community for those interested in advancing freedom-friendly technologies in the areas of video creation, production, & distribution.

We are an open community and we welcome you to join us if you care about a world where someone can use their video equipment without the need to worry about licensing fees or conditions on the distribution of content that you have created.

So, welcome, and we look forward to a future of freedom!

UPDATE: We’d like to welcome all visitors coming from Reddit and elsewhere!  Someone graciously added a link to our site, but we haven’t actually announced it yet, as the content isn’t where we want it to be yet for public consumption, so we apologize for the dearth of information.  More information about the state of Libre Video will be added, including solutions, freedom-friendly hardware, news, and more as we get to it.  Meanwhile, you’re welcome to subscribe, comment, or join us at our informal online location of #theora on (until we get our own channel somewhere).  Thanks!
