Video: Take your loop mounts to the next level with nbdkit

Loop mounting is popular, but very limited in what it can do on Linux. I gave a talk at FOSDEM on Saturday entitled Better loop mounts with NBD: Take your loop mounts to the next level with nbdkit, and it’s online already!

Download the WebM format or MP4 format files directly.

Also I did subtitles! Download the subtitles directly here. (The subs only cover the first 30 minutes of the talk, not the Summary and Q&A.)

There are a few small problems and corrections:

  1. There’s a part of the talk where I refer to the light blue trimmed blocks. Unfortunately the video feed didn’t capture that, so the light blue looks like white. If you really want to see that then go look at the video in my earlier post.
  2. During the Q&A I mentioned that we could support writing to xz files. This is true, sort of, but I forgot that there’s a problem: nbdkit doesn’t support file resizing (and I believe that’s even experimental in the NBD protocol), so someone would have to add that first. There are other serious down-sides to implementing writable XZ, I doubt it could ever be fast.

For subtitles I used gaupol which is actually quite nice, although subtitling is inherently slow and tedious. It took me a good 4 hours to subtitle 30 minutes of video.

My 10 minute lightning talk on virt-builder from FOSDEM 2014

image

My 10 minute lightning talk about virt-builder is available to download now (video).

Since there are a few sound problems early on in the talk, I have also created a subtitles file: Advanced_disk_image_management_with_libguestfs.srt With VLC you can just drop this file into the same directory as the video file, and VLC will automatically display the subs. With other players you might need to load the subs separately.

The video of Richard Harman’s talk is now online at YouTube. Interesting use of virtualization and tools to analyze malware (in Windows VMs).

Red Hat Summit video online

I’m working to get this in a more usable format, but at the moment if you have flash you can watch Matt and I presenting virt-v2v and libguestfs at the URL below.

Click “Red Hat Summit”, then “V2V VMWare/Xen”.

Matt does the first 30 minutes, then I take over at almost exactly the 30’00 mark in the video.
