The Live feed for wednesday Febuary 27th, and ideas.

What went wrong? was it the service or the machine or user error or something else? because it was a great thing especially after the end. also you should make a behind the scenes special videos, or capture the few minutes after the show and mash it up into a super entertaining thing, like how some people do after the shows and stuff.

Or if you record the audio even after the show ends you can release that as a seperate like audio thing you will need to dig around for or something, or even a seperate podcast, or it can be in the year end specials, the ones where you are off for the end of the year.

It was weird
by DaveBinM / February 27, 2008 8:52 AM PST

I was getting an on/off video feed. I went on all three pages, and got told no-one was broadcasting, then Tom came on for about 30 seconds, then it said he wasn't broadcasting anymore. Also, I couldn't get into the chat, no matter how many times I signed in. *sigh*, and for once, it was a convenient time for me here in Australia!

Remember, Yahoo Live is "beta" (what the heck isn't these days...)

But it is ESP beta... But the machines could be partially to blame to. And also, this is totally a work in progress. I'd love to make the whole process easy for the three of us so we don't spend 10-15 min troubleshooting before each episode...

Any suggestions, I'm open to em.

Also, today's chat room was 300+ which is way more than we ever get in the morning.

Well, I did remember that it is Beta, but I was curious.

Yeah, just about everything is beta, Gmail is still "beta" after 4 years. Hopefully over time these things will become smoother and more consistent in operation.

In regard to the chat, I'd already be signed in, and it would ask me to sign in to join the chat, so would, then it would still ask me to sign in to join the chat. It was whacked. What time is it normally recorded at? (A time zone would also be useful so I can work out what time that is here in Melbourne, AU)

Now that I think of it, could you route the video through it's own like server live, or something? I think there are other sites that do similar, Would ustream.tv be better?

The reason, you can imbead the chat as a seperate thing.

And I think it saves your past broadcasts.

Maybe less bandwidth would make the stream smoother...
by lahall_us / February 27, 2008 9:37 AM PST

I don't know how Y! works, but sending one audio/video stream out from the studio might cut down on the bandwidth pulled into the viewer's PC. Things seemed a little smoother when the first video feed dropped, and then even better when we just had one feed. Audio should only come from the sound board so we can hear the voicemails too.

Can you get one camera to cover all three of you?

Oh, screw it. Just move over to the C|Net TV studio and do it there. You got over 300 viewers who tracked you down from your originally "scheduled" time. Put up some graphics, product shots, head shots (no, not like Crysis,) and you'll have a million viewers!

Sounds like a good idea
by DaveBinM / February 27, 2008 10:03 AM PST

The idea of having one camera cover the whole studio sounds good, and if it cut down the bandwidth use, it might help. in my feed the audio/video syncing was out, Tom would talk, then about 5 seconds later I'd hear what he said, and it was a little choppy, but that could be my crap connection too. Happy

But by having the one camera it also simplifies things on the users end. I'm not sure what this would mean for Tom, Molly and Jason though.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
