If you are coming to Google I/O 2013 you can spend the entire show learning about nothing else but video. YouTube has and entire track this year, and all three days of I/O are full of video goodness. Day 1 (Wed) and Day 2 (Th) are jam-packed with YouTube sessions. Day 3 (Fri) features two YouTube API codelabs.
This year we have two categories of sessions:
- YouTube API-specific sessions
- General knowledge-sharing sessions for anyone who loves video
While the former is something expected at I/O, I am particularly proud of the latter since it is great to give back. Here’s the list of sessions that belong to the “general knowledge sharing” category:
- Demystifying Video Encoding: WebM/VP8 for the Rest of Us
- Secrets of Video Stabilization on YouTube
- Designing Products for a Multi-screen World: The YouTube Perspective
- Adaptive Streaming for You and YouTube
- Semantic Video Annotations in the YouTube Topics API: Theory and Applications
- WebM and the New VP9 Open Video Codec
- Epson’s immersive video experience
- Media Studio’s tools + marketplace product for video creators
- Woowa Brothers (배달의 민족) which is an amazing S. Korean company which makes take-out ordering fun
- YouTube Anywhere – Using the YouTube API on Phones, Tablets and GoogleTV – where you will learn how to build an Android app using the YouTube Android Player and YouTube Data APIs.
- Mashing Up Videos with the YouTube and the Freebase Knowledge Graph APIs – which will teach you how to use the Freebase API with the YouTube Topics API to build fun and smart apps leveraging the Knowledge Graph.
