Re: Download large Youth Videos Zip File

The real problem is that the Internet is so slow here that it takes multiple hours download a large file.

This was my first Webcast and the technology worked mostly OK. There were some comments from the other buildings that the members felt that the speake...

Diamond VC500 Video Capture

About 2 weeks ago I installed this device on my computer and was able to create a web cast with no problems. (I am using the Beta webcast software.) I tried it again yesterday as part of the dry run for Stake Conference but now the video (same camera and cables) flickers randomly and is only in blac...
