Following some good online help (as always and this time with Julian himself - how does he manage to find time for all this? - I want whatever he is on) - if anyone has more up to date/accurate info - please correct me.
- recordings will be available, but after several hours, depending on length, audience size etc - 4 hours plus in some cases.
- recordings do not contain desktop sharing - only sound and slides (and maybe chat/questions?)
I and others elsewhere have experienced some problems replaying the video stream and/or syncing the slides to the sound on a recording. The relevant files have been checked by support as OK suggesting problems at receiving end (or in between).
Maybe someone from BBB (Fred?) can help with this please - is there a spec for receiving connections? minimum connection speed, CPU, RAM, preferred OS? I have tried with Chrome and Firefox (latter as recommended)- both exhibit similar symptoms.
Live sessions are fine (for me OK - others with playback issues, please comment) as is other video streaming. Is there some tuning I need to do for BBB streaming? How is it different to other streams?
On the current basis I would strongly echo the request to be able to download the recordings because as things stand very many of the (excellent) sessions will be missed completely due to a combination of this access problem, other commitments and time difference etc.
[for reference - I am using WinXP, Chrome (and Firefox), P4 3GHz, 1Gb RAM, ADSL broadband 28Mbs download]
PS tomorrow/later I'll try a Linux desktop box to see if that is any better
