We would like to begin making and publishing OFBiz related video on our OFBiz Youtube channel.


The main objectives are:

  • to increase awareness of OFBiz in social media
  • to provide useful videos for existing and potential new users
  • to provide useful videos for existing and potential new developers
  • to promote OFBiz business solutions

Types of Videos to Include

Initially, we could start with some simple introduction videos that would be helpful to get people started with OFBiz (and some of this information can be taken from existing documentation and transformed into a video).

  • Introduction
  • Modules
  • Developer (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced)
  • Business How To
  • Developer How To
  • Apachecon / Conferences?
  • Industry Specific


English is the main project language but OFBiz is used globally in many languages so if we have submissions in other languages these will be considered too.

Video Guidelines

Initially, we are looking for short introduction videos of less than 5? minutes.

The video should

  • cover an OFBiz related topic
  • be recorded using a standard OFBiz release
  • promote OFBiz or the OFBiz project

How to Submit a Video

  1. Record your video
  2. Upload the video as an attachment to this wiki page
  3. Add a link to your video in the 'Video Link' column
  4. Fill in your name in the 'Contributor Name' column

What Happens Next?

The video will be reviewed and if acceptable will be published on our OFBiz Youtube channel.

  1. Hi Nicolas - the link you added for YT3 is giving an error. Please can you check the link? Malin Nicolas

    1. Hello Sharan, it's a link that run only on IPV6, try this link if your ipv6 isn't enable by your internet access

      1. Hi Nicolas - I've checked and IPV6 isnt here (where I am yet!). Thanks for the other link. I downloaded and watched your video and it looks OK to me. I liked the bit where you showed the error messages and how to fix them as these are common questions that come up a lot. I will post a message on the mailing list to see if anyone else wants to review it and give their feedback, otherwise I'd be happy to see it published on our channel.
