Re: Audio pop during Christmas devotional

I always have popping on the satellite feed at my building, so I didn't notice that. The audio dropouts were pretty distracting, though. It's always difficult to tell if it's my local sound system/satellite box or if it's an issue in the stream that everyone is experiencing.

Re: Audio pop during Christmas devotional

I am getting periodic audio dropouts on the satellite. It didn't start until just before President Eyring started welcoming everyone at the beginning. I haven't heard it for a few minutes now. Hopefully it's worked out.

Re: SLC shut our Webcasting session down for Regional Conference

Thank you for joining in the conversation, rannthal. It is reassuring to hear that we are being heard. It would be helpful if we could have some official communication about what happened and the steps that are being taken to assure us that this isn't just a novelty to the Church technology departme...

Re: SLC shut our Webcasting session down for Regional Conference

We used the old Meetinghouse Webcast solution for years. It was never very reliable and the quality was terrible. We abandoned it in favor of using Slingboxes a couple of years ago. The primary drivers for trying the new official webcast solution were the free Teradek VidiU devices, the desire to al...

Re: SLC shut our Webcasting session down for Regional Conference

I am in Gilbert, Arizona. I did not receive any information about an internet stream of the regional conference. We have the ability to easily rebroadcast the satellite feed using our video switcher, so we planned to do just that. The added benefit is all the buildings are on the same timing and the...

Re: PORTAL ENHANCEMENT 12

This is more than confusing. The idea of a stable, standard HTML 5 video player is great. The idea of two doesn't make sense. They don't seem substantially different from the user perspective. Why make two available? In my testing, the HTML 5 players are both much less resource-intensive than the Si...

Re: VidiU software

Even without a password, if WiFi is turned off, there is little chance of this happening. Though now that you mention it, I'm going to go lock it down on mine.

Suggestions for Receiving Computers 720p HD

We are starting testing hoping to move from using Slingboxes to using the official broadcast system through a Teradek VidiU encoder. In testing, we have found that anything less than the HD setting and receiving at 2.1 Mbps produces very poor video quality. None of our stake's laptops have quad core...
