Post Worst webcast ever   Posted on: Mon Oct 04, 2004 2:53 pm
The webcast on the Xprize site is the worst ever!!!

Im on a 5 mbit line and the webcast is a slideshow and constantly stalls

Who dropped the ball on this ?

Its history in the making, of course bandwidth demands is going to be large

whoever was in charge of this should be fired

Try this site - it's much better:

http://www1.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/SpaceShipOne.html

The actual content of this webcast is MUCH better though. Last week was very amateurish, whereas this time I think they've realised the audience for this is huge, and it feels like normal TV. Well done you guys.

Btw, was the presenter British or American?

She is British...

I watched the webcast from 2pm to like the end of the press conference... didnt think it would last that long lol.

At the end they lost their script or didnt know what to say lol.

But anyway it was really cool and yes the NASA website was fine and didnt pause.


This site is REALY slow right now, or is it me?

I thought the presentation was still on the amateur side.
Leaving the audio feed on during the numerous unnecessary "breaks" was stupid.
Nasa's feed was much more stable, though it hung up and stuttered at times.
I never got the official stream to do anything other than audio.

[quote="whoa182"]She is British...quote]

Yeah most of what she said sounded very British, but she had quite a few Americanisms in there - like the softening of the "t" to sound like a "d" :-)

Anyhow, I just wondered if she's like a regular presenter on any channel over in the US, or an unknown. She's not anyone I know from the UK.
