Re: Bishops / Ward Specialists want permanent camera solution - what do I do?

I'd say that whatever you use for a permanent solution, it should be: 1) nearly cordless, and 2) requires minimal setup, and 3) has great audio. We're currently stuck trying to get PTZ cameras mounted. FM said that the church denied their request to install a PTZ camera even in our stake center thro...

Re: Sharing our experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

sbradshaw, I double checked, you are correct. Unfortunately, it's not a simple step. When you click on the Zoom link, it wants you to download the zoom app. If you cancel that, then there is a big Launch Meeting button. But the web link is NOT found. Only after you click on the button do you see one...

Re: Sharing our experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

Huh, I didn't know that: From https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/214629443-Zoom-web-client The Zoom web client allows joining a Zoom meeting or webinar without downloading any plugins or software. That can be very helpful for many of our situations where people want to broadcast small meeting...

Re: Sharing our experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

We've discussed post-COVID too. Our stake president seems primarily motivated by the sick and the elderly who just can't make it to church. He knows these folks are also the most unlikely to be able to check email for updated links. They would also struggle to be supplied an unlocking password. So h...

Re: Sharing our experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

As to using commercial platforms like YouTube, this just seems like it shouldn't be necessary when the church has invested in its own closed platform. It just needs to up the performance to cope with the increasing demand that this 'new normal' COVID life has generated. Surely it's preferable to ke...

Re: Sharing our experience with Virtual Sacrament Meeting Broadcasts

It's almost certainly being re-encoded in the webcast process. We simultaneously broadcasted the same stream through the church's webcast system and YouTube. YouTube looked much better and avoided artifacts. But the church's system isn't that bad, you really only need about 480p, what's been most im...

Re: Meetinghouse streaming sundaymeeting

Three important questions to answer before you decide: * Are you looking for something that you can control remotely, or will each building be responsible for setting up and maintaining its own broadcast? * Are you looking for a temporary solution to last the next 6-12 months, or are you looking for...

Re: Has anyone originated a Zoom webinar with a Raspberry Pi?

Another thought: if the Android Zoom client is sufficient, what about running Android on the Raspberry? Probably no different . From here: https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-android-lineageos/ >LineageOS is an open-source operating system that is built upon the Android platform. . . .The only feat...

Re: Has anyone originated a Zoom webinar with a Raspberry Pi?

I tried to set up our stake with a raspberry pi for zoom webinary sacrament meetings, but the ARM to x86 emulator did not support audio, so I switched to an x86 raspberry pi, but Linux Zoom does not support CC, so I purchased a Beelink Windows 10 tiny pc for about $180, and got it set up to run all...

Re: Has anyone originated a Zoom webinar with a Raspberry Pi?

All the literature I had seen said the ARM to x86 emulator would not work well. It's pretty clear that the emulator introduces the performance degradation that causes video to reportedly be very choppy. I thought that too. I was quite surprised the video was passable on my Zoom/RP4 test. Where did ...
