Please, consider linking the videos via the links to amara.org
provided in the subs wiki [0]
Notice that amara does not host the files, only the subtitles... but
adds both a player that is able to show the subtitles and a some
interface to edit such subtitles

I know is ugly to link to some external website... frankly, I dont
know how else to do it. Amara is free software but is not packaged
into debian. Ill try to get some instance up for the next year... but
I havent looked into it yet.

For now, this will have to do.

The subtitles will be available outside amara.org once they are
finished. But they are not... and will not be unless they are promoted
and exposed to the people interested in watching those videos in the
first place

Common FAQ about subs:
Q: Can I contribute only 30 min? Is still useful?
A: Yes. Please do. The web interface makes it fairly easy to do it and
submit your work

Thanks for considering

PS: The wiki page is not finished yet. It has suffered from various
iterations in the workflow and a major overhaul. Im working on it.
Patience please :)
