“A Digital Media Primer for Geeks” is a video series, from Xiph.Org, which presents the technical foundations of modern digital media as increasingly detailed instalments. One community member described the first episode as “a Uni[versity] lecture I never got[,] but really wanted”.

The series explains modern digital media from historical origins, basic concepts, to modern implementation. It’s intended for engineers, (software) hackers, mathematicians — the people who are interested in discovering and making things and building the technology itself — and budding geeks wanting to begin exploring video coding, as well as the technically‐curious who want to know more about the media they wrangle for work or play.

So, without any further ado, welcome to one hell of a new hobby.
