I just finished streaming Erin Moriarty’s interview with Hillary Clinton. You can see it here.
Some valuable lessons learned:
- Ideally, you need an internet connection with an upload speed of 1 megabit. We increased our speed to 1 megabit and the results were far better.
- If the video you’re watching is skipping, it might be your computer or your download speed. Don’t assume you’re having streaming problems until someone else, somewhere else, has checked, too. We had a lot of skipping here (probably because my laptop was encoding and upload the stream). But most other viewers had no problem.
- Record the video! uStream provides a tool for doing that.
More bulletins as events warrant…
