MOV and MP4 on GitHub issues, pages, and more @github

Adafruit 2019 4880

GitHub now supports MOV and MP4 (max 10mb, or 100mb for pro customers). This is GREAT. Being able to share screencasts’, wiring, step by step, and use video in documentation is something we do wherever we can, and now it’s part of GitHub. With video now part of GitHub we’ll be able to document better, share more, and have more content that helps people. Communities can also use video to tell their story, maximize social coding together, and really enhance anything that is on GitHub.

Video files that you drop onto markdown files are now automatically embedded. You can also attach csv, xls, and md files to issues, PRs, and markdown files. AND Pro customers ($4/month) can upload 100MB videos, thanks Nat.

I wrote about this late last year and added a few videos to our awesome- pages: – A curated list of awesome CircuitPython guides, videos, libraries, frameworks, software and resources. – A curated list of awesome Feather boards, add-ons (FeatherWings), guides, videos, software and resources. – A curated list of awesome Stemma connector resources including Stemma-equipped microcontrollers and breakout boards.

It’s also now possible to add a video to your own special profile pages as well.

On a related note, here is my activity 2019, 2020, and 2021. You can see the exact day in March of 2020 where everything stopped and the only focus was/is on COVID related matters.

And some notes to self for future things: Having a how to make your own person GitHub page (markdown) is a great way to get started with coding, even if there is not coding yet. Having folks learn how to make their own personal GitHub page is sorta like making personal HTML pages back in the day which can lead to all sorts of sparks for people to start coding.



Prolly will be part of our GitHub for kids projects I’d like to back to in 2021 if time / resources allows. Mona is on my shelf waiting…
