For reference I bought my wife an Asus 4GB dual core laptop in early November for about $300 at staples. Works great. This should be sufficient. I guess I just have a tough time with all of the high end equipment I see some stakes spending when there are so many in need and the funds are short latel...

As a response to your question though it seems you don't need the best and latest laptop. What you listed is fine as long as you pay $300 or less I'd say as you should not need to pay more. Here is the reqs. from the wiki: The system requirements for Meetinghouse Webcast are driven by the system req...

Can someone explain to me where the funds for things like this come from? I've read about stakes buying this incredibly expensive equipment but don't understand how they justify it or get the funds for it? Does this not all come from the general fund? You don't really need a $1500 camera since the w...

I've only been using the dedicated box so far and only quickly glanced at the software but if there is any way to add a second audio channel it would be greatly appreciated. Not knowing the entire encoding path it may be the encoder that is the limiting factor but if not, the ability to add a second...

Has anyone compared these solutions to see if they give better results than the dedicated box? We have the broadcast box and while sound is good the video is what I get complaints about. It's not the camera feeds as they look fine. It may just be the window encoder to blame but I would still like to...

Thank you for the feedback. This feature is not currently available. I will add it to our feature requests for when we evaluate updating the Webcast portal. Please note, if we do decide to report on the number of unique connections, this will still be inefficient in representing the viewership as o...

The entire website is unresponsive, sluggish, does not work well on some browsers (ie: firefox), etc.. I appreciate the attempt to pretty things up but so far no-one in my Ward who has asked me about it seems to like it as they prefer the old version due to the sluggishness and difficulty finding th...

So you'll definitely want to sign in to beta.lds.org and see what's available. It's certainly not a full MLS yet, but it's encouraging that the Church is clearly moving more and more functionality online. Hmm... This sounds very interesting. This could actually be one way to avoid some of the datab...

After I posted the suggestion you quoted above, there was also a discussion in this thread of working with the "data" directory. That suggestion seems to work better for people with this particular issue. Have you tried following those steps as well? Deleting the two subdiretories in the MLS/Data/U...

Well, I think you're right in saying that there is a problem in the MLS upgrade process that needs to be addressed. But it is also correct to say that once the bug hits (and it only hits a small portion of all the machines that upgrade their MLS), there is indeed a problem on the local computer tha...
