Gargaj - 'aight, I'll look at adding a mode for "whatever(!) the desktop resolution is" (likely still rendering at 1080p internally...)... no promises though ;)

Don't spend time on something that might not even happen instead of something that you should be spending time on ;)

Will there be any streaming of the party for US not in US ?
they have a ustream channel, but dont ask me about the schedule...
for the moment its still off air.

actually scrap that: the schedule is only 2 clicks away.
Note that this is all PST time (GMT-8).

Apologies for the stream hickups. The reason is as much of a luxury problem as humanly possible: we're streaming via Wi-Fi and the room is packed.

From Ustream to each viewer it should be sufficient capacity, so the problem is from our capture device to the Ustream backend.

Important: the compos will be shown in the Keynote hall here at GTC (!) which has dedicated Ustream equipment - so expect those streams to be smoother!

So to reiterate: same URL (http://nv.scene.org/2014/live) but different equipment. The session streams are a "best-effort" (which involved getting a ride from micksam7 around the greater San Jose area to visit audio stores and such to find really esoteric gear to get line audio :) - thanks for that man.

No need to apologize! The stream is good enough (with just occasional pauses) and knowing that compos will be streamed with better equipment made a sofa-scener like me very happy.

much appreciated here by another sofa scener here.. literally sat in my armchair, practicing guitar waiting to unmute the stream when the seminar kicks off :)

one of the seminars i wanted to see up next (9pm uk time)

Seminar: Technical history lesson: Demo effects on the classic Amiga - Aske Simon Christensen (Blueberry / Loonies)

shame the smash one is up at midnight UK time.. i'll have to catch that on a download

Okay, it looks like we might be able to offer a better stream ("located" an "unused" computer, "found" a wired LAN connection, borrowed a DSLR from lovely lovely Dotwaffle, getting help from the wonderful Micksam7) -- so hang tight!

Gloom: will the android and pc demo compo be delayed ? Than i can watch the better stream at breakfast instead of 03:30 am ;-)
added on the 2014-03-25 23:52:52 by magic magic
the pc demo compo was already "delayed" till tomorrow, afaik.
