The official site for ARKH (Asylum Seekers & Refugees of Kingston upon Hull) / Northern Refugee Centre (Hull and East Riding)

Since Wednesday last week, Jamie has been working on uploading the video project for Hull Refugee Week form 2009 onto YouTube. It’s finally uploaded, and there are  embeds at the bottom of this post, so you can watch it without leaving this site, too.


He’s been having problems, because the video is over 35 minutes long with very few cuts or fades. Hopefully, the edit he’s uploaded will have suitable cuts in it. He hasn’t edited anything out, by the way. All he has done it “chopped” it into smaller chunks. this is because YouTube has an upper limit of 15 minutes per video.

Another problem he has been having is that the audio is encoded in a very strange format that only VLC player knows how to decode so he’s had to try and hack his way through the audio and convert it to something more useful.

Good news!

The good news is, it’s been uploaded.

The bad part? It’s been uploaded in 3 parts. The first is a 5 minute introduction, the second is an interview with Hasanain Ali and Nabaz Ibrahim, and the final part is a session recorded with the refugee group Bora Shabaa.

On With The Show!
