Description

WordPress.tv is a great resource for WordPress content, specifically for training and learning new ways to use and build with WordPress.

This patch adds a dashboard widget to the WordPress dashboard, integrating the WordPress.tv feed to the dashboard.

This is a small addition that could eventually pave the way for having curated content (by language or feature) added to the WordPress.tv widget.

@psykro I'd love to see this included. +5 stars

Question, based on this diff line ~1540 https://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/50139/50139-add-wptv-dashboard-widget.diff

Should those URLs be httpS not http?

I'm curious, is there a reason not to include this in the already existing planet.wordpress.org feed instead, as has been done for other resources?

I'm just not sure if a dashboard widget for this solves an actual problem the users have, and will for the majority of users be a widget to turn off as their first action. Given that most users likely aren't looking for videos talking about WP features (and may even be confusing if the most recent ones are technical presentation for example).

@Clorith, thanks for the feedback, that's a good point. My thinking goes like this:

  1. The primary dashboard widget already contains news from planet.wordpress.org as well as upcoming events.
  2. WordPress.tv is updated quite regularly, with large sets of new videos being updated at a time. If added to the resources at planet.wordpress.org, it might mean other useful info, like nearby meetups might get lost/missed.

In my opinion much of content at WordPress.tv would extremely useful, especially to new users. However I do agree on your point about technical talks, so perhaps a way to better filter the content in the widget would make sense?

To me the primary purpose is letting people know that WordPress.tv actually exists. For those of us in the "Community" we take it for granted that regular users know of everything that we do. Ideally a curated set of videos would be ideal but I think this is a good first step.
