An Experiment with uStream.tv

On Monday I’m going to be presenting Tweetcamp III, and instead of a phone conference call or using our Mayo Clinic AV department resources am planning to do a video Webcast using uStream.tv.

So I’m doing a little experiment tonight, and embedding the code from my uStream program, which I’ve dubbed ChancellorCast, here on the SMUG site.

At 9:30 p.m. EDT/8:30 CDT/6:30 PDT tonight, I’m going to do a brief test of uStream, for about 10 or 15 minutes. If you’re able to see and hear me, I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment below.

I want to test this with a smaller group, so that for #tweetcamp3 we can have the kinks worked out.

Appreciate your feedback and help.

Update 9:15 CDT: Thanks to all who participated. I think you helped me prepare so we can have a good experience Monday. I’ve embedded a video below that I recorded with uStream, which gives a bit of an overview of Tweetcamp III.

  1. Lee, it’s working on the SMUG site, but I am having a hard time hearing you with all of the speakers turned up. Wonder if anyone else is having the same problem!

  2. It’s working for me… although I agree it is on the quiet side as I have my volume maxed and still kind of strain to hear… FWIW, I am using a Mac browing with Safari and it’s looking great.

  3. Thanks to all of you for your feedback. I’m going to try another one tomorrow, I think, and see how I can further tweak. One thing I can do might be turning down the audio on my speakers, which might have caused the echo.
