"Warning: Government bodies and political parties are beginning to latch onto the term #opensource "

You mean like the corporations for whom the term "open source" was created because "free software" was too scary?

"All these updated privacy policies that providers are sending out make for an excellent opportunity to delete a bunch of accounts I don't use anymore." - @seanl

Beware the treacherous media structure pretending to be your friend. But when you see rotting meat, don't blame the maggots.

See Alphabet Inc and YouTube - possibly the worst of all.

@JordiGH Brillant technique!

The very opposite of "divide et impera": he exploited the language to blur the meaning of into what people now call or .

I'm not in any way against corporates distributing but I don't want to give my time and skills for free to them.

For is not for !

In the past I was fool enough to think it was the same, but I was very wrong: medium.com/@giacomo_59737/what

Lesson learned!

On Video Formats

In the near future the camera's video stream will be transferred onto a computer via USB 3.0 and written to a file on disk there.
The likely format being used then is a raw 12 bit image sensor dump with only small focus on adding metadata for post-processing.

While this is absolutely adequate for the current development phase, there may be demand for a post-processing oriented container format.
