It took around 12 hours, but it could have taken 6 or less if I didn't
end up having so many problems encoding it and uploading it. Everything
through editing the clips together and adding titles was very
straightforward. But it was extremely painful and time-consuming to
render them, and very difficult to upload them. (Even YouTube failed the
first 3 tries. The first try because the video was over 10 minutes, so I
had to split it and re-render it, then upload again.)

Just an interlude: I am not sure about PiTiVi, but usually when you split a video (mencoder, avidemux, whatever...) you don't need to re-render it, saving a segment with the same encodings should be *very fast*.

If we want to make a drive for this I think we need to get the bugs in
the encoders fixed, and we should also decide on a proper place to host
the videos (I will say YouTube's caption feature is great - I didn't
have to set up time stamps at all and it's very close to being in-sync)
and have some documentation for getting the uploaded and working with
some troubleshooting information.

Maybe we can get them hosted somehow on our servers, we don't need streaming or Flash, people with HTML5-enabled browsers should be able to see them.

Note: I agree is important to put the videos where the viewers are, so upload copies on YouTube, Vimeo, Blip.tv, etc. but would like to have also the "original" somewhere is a Free format.
