This question applies to this video and The Get Healthy Now Show:
As the writer's guild works out their issues with the new digital media, here's a question about the wiki's definition of stuff for categorization. All the other resource videos we have are categorized as Sesame Street Videos and Sesame Street Direct-to-Videos (along with being included in Sesame Street Resource Videos). However these two new resource videos (as far as I can dig up) have only been released online (via iTunes) and have not been released on VHS or anything like that (or at least not yet). So would they go in those wider video categories? Does "Sesame Street Video" include the newer digital media outlets or just DVD, VHS, Beta, Laserdisc, etc.? Are the "Video" categories only for physical products and tangible home video releases? Or is "Video" for any home video release - both physical and digital? -- Brad D.

- "Get Healthy Now Show" has been released on DVD as a resource video, as seen here, and the same applies to "Learning is Everywhere," as evidenced here. They idea of iTunes is to make the resource videos accessible to a broader spectrum, but they're not abandoning the other. So as of now, I don't think that changes anything. Anything created exclusively and solely for the web could still be a Resource Video(if that's clearly the intent and purpose) but would also be categorized as online content. That's how I see it. Also, see Category talk: Sesame Street Resource Videos for my thoughts on the "direct to video" category (which I think should be removed unless the product has been released *commercially*). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 21:16, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
- Ah, so these two have been released on DVD, I wasn't sure because they aren't listed in Sesame Workshop's resource video listing or ordering site (or at least not yet) and I couldn't find any other places with physical copies of these (whereas the older resource videos I have been able to find physical existance). -- Brad D.
