VideoNeat is a different kind of educational website based on videos (documentaries/movies/lectures) - all of the materials are hand picked (curated) and they are all decentralized (no server, no restrictions, nothing like that). But we need people¡s help to make it stronger and more reliable. And it is simple as hell: SEED. Download any materials from the website and simply seed them.
For those who are not familiar with it: use a BitTorrent client such as Transmission Torrent https://transmissionbt.com/ -> go to any VideoNeat page (documentary/lecture/movie) -> click the "magnet" -> choose to open with the BitTorrent client (like say Transmission) -> the download will start. That's all. Now whenever you have the BitTorrent client opened on your computer, you help "seed" whatever you have downlaoded.
This way we spread these materials on multiple computers and whenevr someone else wants them, they take them from all of us, the ones who share them. The more we are, the more reliable this system is.
Help us please!
For this video we filmed Sofie using Sasha’s laptop-tablet, in tablet mode. TROMjaro works very well with touch screen devices, making it perfect for digital drawing, for example. The pen also worked out of the box with TROMjaro. Although Sofie helps designing icons for TROMjaro, she doesn’t yet use TROMjaro for the job, but iOS. The illustration that you see in the video is actually made by Sofie, but again in iOS. She uses Krita in the video, which is a trade-free and professional digital drawing application. In this regards, although Sofie doesn’t use TROMjaro for digital drawing, we showcase that TROMjaro is more than capable for this job, using a touchscreen device + pen and Krita as an example. Sofie does an impressive job when it comes to digital drawing!People who worked on the video: Tio, Sasha and Seb.
ok now I'm back to my own blog 😛
There are many more that need to be edited so if anybody else wants to help with this and/or posting on social media, we can use your help! Tio made a new page to show you how- https://www.tromsite.com/act/ (click "Share")
Now it should be easier for anybody that wants to translate them 😉
03. Trade-Free means TROMjaro is yours https://www.tromjaro.com/tromjaro-videos-trade-free-means/ (behind the scenes photos)"
This video we shot with Aaron who is using TROMjaro since TROMjaro’s inception :). Interestingly he uses a MacBook Pro from 2012, and despite that TROMjaro works perfectly. Seb, Tio, and Sasha worked on filming this one. Aaron translates all of the TROM project and its babies into German and he does it all on TROMjaro. On top of this he creates videos for TROM and for his own website with Kdenlive, that is featured in the video. For this shot we tried some new filming techniques that worked pretty well, namely filming from above with a slider. You can see in the photos bellow how we achieved that."
Translators can translate, others can share 😉
This is the first video that we filmed and it was only Tio and Sasha filming it. It was also the most “scripted” one since we wanted to test a bunch of stuff, like how to switch between the angles. So basically we had to film the same exact scene multiple times, from multiple angles. It isn’t as easy as you may think. For one you have to remember to “act” in a similar way between the shots (walk the same way, open the laptop the same way, etc.), else you can’t connect the shots later on. Second, you have to find good angles so it doesn’t look all over the place. See the transition when Sasha comes near the table then sits down on the couch. That is one perfect angle switch. If it looks smooth, it is perfect. This is the only shot where we used the camera stabilizer. You need a lot of practice to figure how that works, so we decided not to use it for the other shots.
Translate and share folks!
With the code base of Manjaro Linux and the graphical user environments GNOME, KDE and Xfce, this distribution represents a stable and powerful operating system from the Arch family. What distinguishes TROMjaro from its origin (and all other distributions) are the ethical principles to which the development team is committed. The way of thinking which goes beyond software is described with the attribute Trade Free and explained in detail on the website tromsite.de (the official German information platform of the TROM project).
In TROMjaro, inclusions with commercial contact points have been consistently removed, which is why support for Snap (Snap Store) is missing. However, the Arch User Repository (AUR) is activated by default and the project offers some self-developed and promising applications for free use. After installation, TROMjaro presents itself in a modern and uniform design. While tools for system maintenance and adjustments are completely available, there are only a few pre-installed applications. In this respect, users have unrestricted freedom of choice, supported by an excellent graphical installation tool. The project’s website provides a wealth of information and instructions, mainly in the form of videos.
If you can't figure how to do it asks us at tromsite.com/chat. Together we are smarter than big companies with a few servers 😀
So, what's new? See our new homepage https://www.tromjaro.com/ to discover the entirety of TROMjaro. A Trade-Free operating system with a plethora of features!
See what's new about this release here https://www.tromjaro.com/releases/. And please support TROM if you can https://www.tromsite.com/donate/. Soon we will make a video about the new TROMjaro 😉
For "previous" users there is not much to do, except tehy MUST update the TROM Repository! Instructions on the releases page.
Big thanks to Sofie and Georgi for making custom TROMjaro icons for many many apps and continuing to do so. And to everyone who is testing it 😉
