Hehe. Great you tell it. THanks a lot for your thoughts.
Well, I know my english isn't the best, but since I've been to
some international conferences I decided that there's no need
to hide it ;-) .
Anyway, of course a native speaker would be great, but I
simply did it instead of waiting years until someone else
would finally do it.

Well, there are some video editing tools for Linux, but I
decided to record everything in realtime.
Adding the audio tracks later will increase the needed work

Of course making a multi language DVD is a great idea. but I'd
like it more if the videos are taken completely anew for the
destination language. The reason is simple, it makes less
sense to have a chinese language video with english UI.
Furthermore, I should have created a new user on my box for
making the videos and setting its language to en. I really
hate the german tooltipps accidentally popping up in the
videos ;-) .
And to be honest, I have three goals in mind when making the
* Reducing n00b questions in the groups
* Help n00bs and tell them to not give up
* Show users of other operating systems what wonderful things
we can do with free software
And finally (you shouldn't have asked ;-):
If someone else wants to create a video showing the usage of a
certain aspect of audio software (or any other aspect of a
linux system, of course), I'll immediately help with all
material and knowledge I can offer.
So, returning to your question, if a native speaker wants to
redo one of the videos, he shouldn't hesitate to order all of
my material by email.
BTW: The third one is not very good, I'll update it after the
Gruß & regards
