Alive alive-o // An impromptu event to test our new live streaming server

Published by Mr. C

If you were following last Sunday's live streaming show, or if you've watched the replay, you'll likely be aware that we were suffering from streaming problems.

Despite our best efforts, both the primary live server (hosted by Justin.tv) and the secondary live server (hosted by Ustream.tv) failed us. It's not the first week we've suffered problems either, and it appears that as those two services gain in popularity so their reliability similarly suffers.

A solution would be to run our own streaming server, which is what we've spent the best part of the week figuring out.

Because we're new to all this, it seems like a good plan to give it a road test before Sunday. We were planning to record the green screen for last episode of Inside Track today, and as that was the show that started the live ball rolling, it seems only appropriate that it's the first show to run on the new equipment.

If you're around this evening, say about 8pm and you fancy helping us test this stuff, or if you wouldn't mind catching an early preview of the video, then please feel free to join us.
