Please follow the instructions below to submit a video for an FSF event, including LibrePlanet or an FSF anniversary event.

1. Install FileZilla

FileZilla is available in the repos of most distros. For example:

  • Trisquel, PureOS, and other Debian-based distributions
 # apt-get install filezilla
  • Guix
 # guix install filezilla
  • Parabola, Hyperbola, and other Arch-based distributions
 # pacman -S filezilla

Otherwise, you can download the client from here: FileZilla.

2. Connect to our FTP server

  • Open FileZilla
  • In the "host" field near the top of the window, enter ""
  • Username: anonymous
  • Port: 21
  • Click "Quickconnect"
  • When the window that says that the host key is unknown, select the check box next to "Always trust this host", then click OK

You should now be connected. Troubleshoot: if the connection fails the first attempt, please check the host name is exactly as described above, not including "ftp" or any additional text.*

3. Upload your video to our FTP server

Drag and drop video file you want to upload from the left hand file tree into the "upload-here" folder in the right side pane. Note that you can only place files in this directory and not additional directories.

4. When you are done uploading
