I had talked for about three minutes when I saw an IM from Helaine. No one on the outside could see me!
Glad I’m typing now because my throat is a little sore. I just finished a one hour videochat. It was fine though it didn’t go as planned. I remember shows like this in ‘real’ TV too! Lots of them.
I was all set to go live using the Livestream.com Procaster. I hit the button and began. Everything looked fine. I had talked for about three minutes when I saw an IM from Helaine. No one on the outside could see me! I have no idea why.
I made a quick switch to a web based controlled, but I was giving up a lot of functionality. I had webpages and graphics set to show. Now they’d be a no show. Frustrating.
Before I do this again I need to figure out what went wrong and how to keep it from going wrong again. There will be more chats.
I discovered livestream.com this afternoon. By this evening I was live streaming! It was a good opportunity to interact a little with my viewers.

I liked livestream’s control room type app a lot. It let me stream my webcam and switch back-and-forth between it and my computer’s screen. That allowed me to show webpages and photos to illustrate my points.
What I didn’t like was the app crashing halfway through my chat!
Because I’m new and haven’t yet been verified by livestream I was limited to 50 participants. My quota was quickly filled. Wow! Thanks.
I have jumped through livestream’s hoops and hope to have unlimited capacity soon.
The response on Facebook and Twitter was positive. I will be back.
