Welcome to WordPress.tv

Our goal with WordPress.tv is simple:

To make it easy for you to find up-to-date, WordPress-themed video content within a couple of clicks. Without having to wade through spammy promotional videos, out-of-date content, and missing chunks of presentations. There’s a quick intro video if you’re curious:

To kick off with, there are basically two flavors of content on offer:

How To video training 

If you want to learn how to use WordPress, how to do cool stuff with it, how to push it to the bloody edge of reason – we’re building an exponentially growing library of video training content. You’ll find the beginnings of that in the How-To section of the site. There’s a lot more to come, both WordPress.com and WordPress.org side, but it’s happening, and fast.

WordCamp to your door

If you’re interested in catching up on presentations, slides, interviews and behind-the-scenes mayhem from the WordCamps springing up all over the globe, we have WordCampTV for you. The idea here is that even if you can’t get to the real thing (and even if you can), you can still get a good idea of what went on there.

Now and next 

WordPress.tv is just getting started. As of today you’ll find a whole bunch of tutorials with a focus on the basics, alongside some choice presentations from last year’s WordCamps.

In the coming weeks and months you can expect to see a lot more content – we’re actively seeking out WordCamp footage, and there are already a huge amount of screencast tutorials in production and post. If the focus with our launch content has been on the basics, don’t let that put you off if you have more advanced needs – those *will* be catered to soon.

We’d love to know the type of thing that you’d like to see and hope you’ll leave some feedback in the comments here. If you know of video captured at your local WordCamp or have found a really useful, up-to-date tutorials – we’re all ears.

It’s all about you

Above everything the idea here is to produce and curate top-notch content that makes it easier for you to get things done with WordPress, and keep abreast with the latest stuff going on with the platform – whether you’re a WordPress.com user, or run your own WordPress.org installation.

WordPress is all about the community, and as WordPress.tv evolves, we hope you’ll play an active part in shaping its direction and content. With that in mind, expect to see screencasting and video-making tutorials in the WordPress.tv blog, along with an ongoing discussion about what you want to see, and how you want to see it.

Follow the latest releases, give us feedback, tip us off 

If you’d like to keep up to date on the latest content added to WordPress.tv, consider subscribing to the blog. If you come across some nice screencasts, videos or WordCamp presentation slides or presentations, let us know via the handy dandy contact form. Or if Twitter floats your boat, follow the action over there

We’re looking forward to hearing your ideas. Until then – happy viewing!

  8. Fikri @ Bloggingly

    Great! :D

    can i ask you something? How wordpress.tv broadcast the video? Is it using a plugin? if it yes, can i get the plugin?

  9. Michael Pick

    Hi Fikri – third party videos are embedded via VodPod, our own videos use the WordPress video player, which is available to all Space Upgrade users of WordPress.com (you can embed into .org sites however).

  10. Sajid Iqbal

    Thanks michael. People were searching youtube and other video sharing sites. I guess this will set a trend among other application vendors too, to setup there on video resources to help their community.

    Congratulations!
    But dont make a Cross Dissolve with the logo.

    Great work WordPress…as usual.

    Shared it with my readers. I will surly giveback to WordPress community some of my Free WordPress theme, after I learn how to make them, using tutorials provided in this website :)

  13. jose

    YOU GUYS ROCK! I LOVE YOUR PUBLISHING TOOL AND HAVE USED IT FOREVER!

  14. Edmund Dante Hamilton

    PLEASE, do a tutorial(s) on how to create a WordPress Theme.

    Possibly using Dreamweaver or MAMP, XAMP, etc. This is the most needed for us Dreamweaver people who want to migrate to WP but can’t seem to understand the tags, the PHP calls, “loop” and other stuff that reads simple in the Codex, but is complicated to execute without any kind of “visual” tutorial.

    PLEASE do this ASAP.

    Thanks for creating this much needed website. You should also sell ads on here I think.

  15. Matt

    WordPress.tv is incomplete. As a plugin developer, I’d be more than glad to use WordPress.tv to host any plugin-related tutorial videos, but that service isn’t yet available. Any timeframes as to when (if?) the public will be able to upload our own videos?

  16. Ryan McCue

    Awesome site, especially all the WordCamp videos.

    It’d be awesome if you could have a blackout button, like Hulu’s “lights down”; it makes it much easier to concentrate on the video.

    Also, are the videos linked to their slides? In a lot of WordCamp videos, the slides are a major part of them.

  17. lewp

    I am looking forward to keeping up-to-date with the tutorials. Great idea, thanks!

  18. Michael Pick

    Thanks everyone for your comments and feedback – we’re taking notes here :)

    @Matt – WordPress.tv is most definitely incomplete, we’re just getting started. The content at the moment covers a lot of the basics, but you can expect to see it move way beyond that in the coming weeks and months. If you’d like to submit or suggest any Plugin related videos, we’d love to hear about them via the contact form. Rest assured that this is one of the many topics we’ll be covering.

    We’re not setting out to be YouTube, but rather a curated collection of useful WordPress-themed content. That involves a certain amount of filtering to keep things streamlined and avoid a glut of irrelevant, spammy or inappropriate content.

    Congratulations!

    • Michael Pick

      Thanks arena – we’ll be posting production hints and tips on the WordPress.tv blog. Internationalization is also something we’re thinking through and will hopefully be added soon

  24. Tarzan: His Boys Can Swim Blog

    Thanks for launching WordPress.TV – it’ll be a huge help for us ‘non-techies’ out there!

    Hope to see some advanced tips and tricks videos down the road as well.

  25. Ben Millett

    Just thought I’d point out that it looks like blog.wordpress.tv could use some help with the <–more–> code. When I visited the blog’s main page, I thought that the sample intro video simply didn’t embed correctly because the paragraph ends:

    There’s a quick intro video if you’re curious:

    If I hadn’t clicked the post title to go to the actual post, I wouldn’t have seen that the video does embed correctly and that here is a lot more text. Just something you might want to look at.

  26. Dr. Mike Wendell

    Michael, you mention that this is for the community. Previously ,members of the community have been cut out of using other WordPress and Automattic sites like WordPress.com, Gravatar and Akismet. Is this a change of policy of Automattic’s or do you need to make a correction to your statement?

    • Michael Pick

      Mike, I’m not sure how members of the WordPress community have been “cut out of using” WordPress.com, Gravatar or Akismet – last time I looked they were all free to use, and the only blogs that would be “cut out” are those that break the (rather relaxed) terms of service (for the most part, spammers).

      WordPress.com provides a simpler alternative to the self-hosting solution, albeit with a lesser degree of customization. With several million users, I’d argue that WordPress.com users are every bit as much part of the WordPress community as their self-hosting counterparts. Finally, it comes down to freedom of choice.

    Good job

  32. Khairil Z

    I wonder if you guys gonna open up the FLV player. It’s so cool.

  33. webvideodaily

    Michael,
    Great work with WPTV. My blog, webvideojournal (on WP)addresses online video topics. As a video and community product manager at Cisco/WebEx, my daily work makes it necessary for me to use and analyze exactly the types of tools you have developed here. Expect to see some analysis on my blog once I upgrade my account to include it.

    An extraordinary blog post, I just shared this onto a fellow coworker who was doing a little analysis on this. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him, so gracias. :) So let me put that another way: Thanks for the treat! But yeah, Thanks for spending the time to share about this, would love knowing more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more info? It is extremely helpful for me. Big thumb up for this perspective!
