2nd tech test of Ustream. This one goes for about 27 minutes so feel free to fast forward. We will be able to stream live so that’s pretty awesome. And Ustream can record and stream at the same time. Doubly awesome. It can also convert to different video formats so I’ll grab that raw feed and edit it down to something manageable.
A few quirks. For some reason, Ustream won’t play the recorded show on the website so I downloaded the flv and loaded it up here. Video size is 320×240. Not bad for free streaming and live recording and the audio seems to be quite good.
As for the night of the show, we’ve had a bit of a change. Instead of being downstairs in the main area, we will be arting and broadcasting from the 2nd floor of the Ottobar. Slightly different than what we were expecting, but we are guaranteed internet streaming. We also have the run of the entire 2nd floor which could mean lots of awesome. We’ll still be giving away plenty of toys and robots and maybe a DVD or two. Still hashing out more details. I’ll keep you updated as we finalize things.
