Welcome to WikiProject VideoWiki. We are a group of Wikipedians interested in working on collaboratively created video. While the ideas date back to before Wikimania in South Africa in 2018, this WikiProject was born in 2019. The VideoWiki tool auto-generates videos based on wiki-scripts. A detailed description of the project can be found at the Meta page.
