I was wondering whether it is possible to have one single video for the entire lecture. Somehow watching each video separately is very time consuming and does not give the feel of attending a lecture. In addition, I think people are more likely to watch the entire lecture if it is in one single piece.

    Hi Abhi

    I don't know which lecture you mean, Abhi, but in general, the arguments for several shorter videos are:

    Watching a video is anyway a very different experience from attending a lecture.
    A long video can take ages to load if you have a slow or wobbly internet connection.
    If you have to interrupt watching to do something else, it can be difficult to find again the point where you stopped.

    And as you asked on the Universal Subtitles / Amara help forum:

    Transcribing (i.e. the first stage of subtitling with Amara) is usually a one-person job, because others are afraid to mess up the transcript in progress by adding things in the wrong place. So if you want to produce collaboratively on the subtitles for a long lecture, it is easier to work together on that if its video is divided in smaller parts, each of which different people can transcribe separately.
