Video: Git Remotes and Tracking Branches
Here’s a little demo video that I put together to explain pushing/pulling with multiple remotes and how tracking branches make this easier. It’s one of the chapters from my “Git Adventures” talk, but it didn’t make it in to the talk in Amsterdam last week since we chose a different adventure that time – sharing it here in case it’s helpful to anyone else, and so I can find it later!
I also blogged about the tracking branches in a bit more detail if you’re interested.
For some reason the video is completely black in Chrome/Ubuntu/HTML5 Player, I can’t see a thing. I can see the scrubber images when I hover over the timeline, but not in the video. In Firefox it works fine.
I, too, have the same problem in Chrome on a Mac (OS X 10.9.4). And for me, too, this played fine in Firefox (thank you Pies for the idea!!).
I have NO idea why this is, but figured I’d let you know.
I DID like the video, though! This provided a very clear explanation (and showing) of the change to the default ‘git push’ configuration. Thank you for taking the time to record this for us.
