Re: Quality of video from Sony HDR-CX240

The camera's a little misleading on the zoom. There's a label on the top of it that says 54x zoom but the technical specs say it's only 27x optical zoom. The other 27 is "Clear Image Zoom". Either way, the digital zoom was disabled.

Re: Quality of video from Sony HDR-CX240

Precisely what artifacts are you referring to? I watched your link at full screen and didn't notice what I'd call pixeling. What I saw was mushy color and some color noise. I'd say a combination of low lighting (typical of LDS chapels) and perhaps some aggressive JPEG compression. Thanks. I wasn't ...

Re: Quality of video from Sony HDR-CX240

I should add that the camera is set to record at 1080i while we're streaming to YouTube at 720p.

Quality of video from Sony HDR-CX240

The quality of video from the Sony HDR CX240 is a little disappointing. We can get 1080p video but it's a little pixelated or has lots of artifacts. You can see it one a test stream from YouTube we recorded last night. Is this because it's zoomed in so far? Or are the artifacts caused by processing?...

Re: First new webcast results

I started the webcast during the buffer period around 8:15. I didn't have a chance to check it until 8:45, at which point I noticed that it was just a black screen. The stats showed that the server was receiving the stream, but that no clients were connected. I tried with two computers at two diffe...

Re: Receiving site Browsers

The media player for the new broadcasting system uses Silverlight. Silverlight uses the NPAPI which is now disabled by default in Chrome. Older versions of IE should work though.

Re: Streaming at home via YouTube

Filtering is done through the firewall, so you just have to bypass the firewall to access YouTube. Change the network setup so that your connection to the modem does not go through the firewall. After the broadcast is over return the network to it's previous setup so that the firewall is being used ...

Re: Streaming at home via YouTube

We performed a successful test on Sunday. The quality and reliability make it well worth any effort required to bypass the firewall.
