I think Sarah is absolutely right that we should have updated the conference information page with information about streaming, as I don't think most people not attending the conference would think to look at the wiki. Even if everyone forgot to do it during the conference that's a note to the future to remember to do it during the conference, and I've edited the page at http://code4lib.org/conference/2015 to give the link to the YouTube channel.
And thanks so much video team!

I see what you are saying. I realize that logistics are tricky. I would have probably missed a mailing list message if it had come last minute. And I wasn't checking Twitter in a timely manner for updates on a conference I wasn't attending and therefore wasn't all that aware of the exact timing of. (Perhaps this is a great time to bump that librarians list to a more visible position in my Twitter feed...)
And I should say that I'm glad that there is video to watch at all and grateful to the volunteer videographers that made it happen.
