It's ok Todd.  Sorry again for snapping back.  I know unless you got a full tutorial on livestream it wouldn't be absolutely clear as to the process.

Also Vlad I think more than the boring angle we need to work on the audio issue.  Ideally if we have 2 to 3 livestream angles it would help up the production value (something that can be done with the current equipment). 

We can put one camera with a mic on the facilitators at all time.  The second angle can float through the audience to get an angle/mic on blockers, concerners, and point of process people.  That would just take 2 livestreamers and someone in the livestream studio mixing the feeds.  When the crowd is larger we can have 2 floaters to get voices from opposite sides of the parks.  The key in this is the livestream studio person paying attention and cueing up the different angles in a timely fashion.

I think to cover GA well we should sit down and think about best ways tonshoot it.  one angle gets borng but if you alternate angles it might get better.  Maybe we should install a cheap security system feeding into a Broadcasting computer....

I second dwaynes last comment, also noting that even the viewers get bored after a few hours out of a 5 hour GA

If I can open up discussion for 1 more moment.

I would like to say that I don't decide what anyone gets to view.  The person controlling the livestream studio decides what the audience views.  I wasn't the only livestreamer at the park during the GA.  I was just the only one that admitted on camera that I didn't want to cover it.

Furthermore I don't know what Thorin's personal decisions have to do with my issue with the way the GA is currently executed.

Offensive and defensive foul.

I suggest you two discuss peacefully off the listserve and let's try
to keep online engagement cordial.

We're all trying our best here and we're all on the same team. Let's
try to find more productive ways of problem solving. You guys are both
doing awesome jobs! Thanks from millions of people worldwide.
