Will video.SE be stuck in Beta forever?

I can't speak for what SE will do, but I know that they had re-evaluated how they looked at sites a while back. It's probably unlikely we'll eventually be shut down under the new criteria since we ...

Should our scope cover other aspects of producing a film or video project?

As the person who suggested an A51 proposal titled "Filmmaking" two or three years ago, I would love to see this site embrace questions about a broader range of topics. I had a couple of people ...

Should we limit the scope of ffmpeg questions that we cover?

The scope for this site doesn't limit itself to traditional or industry-standard processes. Taken literally, 'Video Production' covers any use that results in video output. Whether that's conventional ...

I'm sorry to hear that this is still a source of frustration among perfectly healthy sites. You have nothing to worry about. Here is a meta post about the continuation of sites and why not to worry ...

Is a [video] tag necessary?

I'm pretty sure that tag is a hold over from when the website was Audio/Video Production rather than Video Production specifically. It would be a fairly substantial cleanup effort to remove the tag ...

I think you have either misconstrued or misunderstood a number of things here, including the timeline. @pizzastatic has already pointed out why user downvotes are not "wrong" - anyone can up or down ...

Am I allowed to ask a question here about 'interpolation value'?

No, this would not be a production question. Frame interpolation by a TV isn't really related at all to video production. This is, unfortunately a purely consumption side thing and is probably ...

What can be done about broken videos?

The usual philosophy on Stack Exchange is to write answers in a way that is still understandable if a link goes bad. For links to text-based content, this means quote the important part, write a short ...

Audio production related questions

No and No. Sound related to video is on topic here. Sound that is purely sound related would go on Sound Design as long as it is production rather than consumption oriented.

Would this the right place to ask questions about authoring on Verse.com?

It sounds like there will be Verse questions that could be in scope, however I can also envisage some that will be programmatical so may be better on SuperUser. There may also be some that are pure ...

What does the question in the tour have unnecessary thanks in it?

It additionally had a pretty non-ideal tag on it for after-effects even though it is looking for alternatives, not actually about after effects. I cleaned that up, but looks like there may be some ...

What are acceptable copyright questions for this site?

The problem there was that running a TV station has nothing to do with Video Production. If it was wondering if you could use it in as a commercial playing on a TV in a movie, that would be on topic.
