Discord Channel

Hey people,

I have discord channel you can join and ask questions..

I think this would be good for ffmpeg community. Mail format is a bit dated.

Link is here: https://discord.gg/Atvd54N

It would? How? What would it add (and more importantly, what would it subtract)?

Email may be "dated" but it's endured for, what, 50 years?
AIM- gone, IRC- gone, ICQ- gone, USENET- on life support (sniff), etc

Pretty much everyone already has a method of reading it that works
_for_them_; nothing new to install and all the messages end up in one place.

Email and mailing lists serve a purpose and are often better for the kind of
text-based discussions that we have. The ffmpeg community seems to do fairly
well with them (as do many communities); I don't see this changing.

I don't mean to discourage you, but it seems like a solution in search of a
problem.

Later,

z!

Excuse me?  FFmpeg has quite an active channel for both user support and
development.

As for the original question: no it would not be good.  Discord is
proprietary software.  I can't see what's at that link but doubt we can
stop you.

My apologies, I'd forgotten about that since I never use it (and was writing
in generalizations).
