NASA Jupiter flyover video ok or not?Edit

Not clear at the moment if the following NASA Jupiter flyover video animation is completely ok or not => File:PIA23807-PlanetJupiter-FlyOver-Animation-20200602.webm - the video file has not yet been added to any Wikipedia articles, including the planet Jupiter article - Thanking you in advance for your help with this - iac - Stay Safe and Healthy !! - Drbogdan (talk) 11:58, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Drbogdan, so the Junocam material can be a little tricky from two angles. First, the image processing itself is not PD-NASA, which is indicated by "NASA/JPL-Caltech/SwRI/MSSS/Kevin M. Gill © CC BY". If you visit the original source page at https://www.missionjuno.swri.edu/junocam/processing?id=8763 (which does require a little searching), you'll find the license for this video is {{Cc-by-3.0}}. The second part is the music by Vangelis, which may be licensed for use by NASA but is not free. This is, unfortunately, also not apparent. When you are converting these types of things to WebM or whatever (really, any NASA video with third party music), I *strongly* encourage you to completely cut out the audio track unless it's clearly indicated the music is freely licensed. I'll go ahead and upload the new version, it'll just take a bit to get it converted.
Also I have to fuss again about categorization. Please take a little more time to get your uploads properly sorted. "Category:Animated films" doesn't apply here and "Category:Flyover" isn't even a valid category. I've applied a new set. See [1] for changes. Huntster (t @ c) 16:40, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Thank you *very much* for your *excellent* comments, efforts and help with this - I thought of removing the audio track, but thought I might wait and see first what you might think about the video overall - I'm trying to add the proper cats, and will try to do this better - seems to be a bit of a challenge for me these days for some reason - in any case - Thanks again - your efforts and all are *greatly* appreciated - Stay Safe and Healthy !! - `Drbogdan (talk) 16:58, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Drbogdan, finally got the replacement file uploaded after much frustration with conversion software, lol. Huntster (t @ c) 23:51, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

@Huntster: FWIW - Thanks again for your help with this - Note: for my part, I used the following program => "Avidemux" (v2.7.6/64-latest) at ( https://www.Avidemux.org => http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/ ) to remove the audio track from the original MP4 file - then converted the resulting MP4 file to a WEBM file using "XMedia Recode" (v3.4.4.8 => this older version is *better* than the more recent ones imo) ( https://www.videohelp.com/download/XMediaRecode3448.zip - or - https://www.videohelp.com/software/XMedia-Recode/old-versions ) - this process seems to work very well for me (pc => Dell8930/WinTel-10) - hope this helps - iac - Stay Safe and Healthy !! - Drbogdan (talk) 01:28, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Drbogdan, thanks for the tip! I'll be giving that a test drive just as soon as I'm back home. Huntster (t @ c) 13:23, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Image use questionEdit

Hi Huntster. There seems to be no good image of a constellationfish, one of the two major species of it, Valenciennellus tripunctulatus.

I found this site (fishesofaustralia.net.au) and in the second image in the gallery, it hosts a CC with attribution/share alike illustration I'd like to use in the WP article. The quotation on the illustration is: "Illustration of a Constellationfish, Valenciennellus tripunctulatus. Source: Marion J. Johnson / USNM. License: CC BY Attribution-Noncommercial-ShareAlike"

Would this mean it could be usable on Wikipedia? Or is there some other rulz that keep Wikimedia from hosting a copy of this excellent illustration?

Thanks. 97.118.132.19 17:14, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

97.118.132.19, so unfortunately, Commons cannot host files marked as "NonCommercial" (NC) or "NoDerivatives" (ND), because those licenses are too restrictive for re-use. What you could potentially do is upload the file locally at en.wiki under Fair Use rules, since no freely licensed images are available. Some links for you: Commons:Licensing for what licenses are acceptable on Commons; and Non-free use rationale guideline for fair-use image requirements on en.wiki. Those should get you started, but please let me know if you have any specific questions. Huntster (t @ c) 17:59, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
