Messiah Test Video

Postby dnslynn » Sun Feb 28, 2016 9:51 pm

The live stream test video for the March 25th Messiah live stream is supposed to automatically switch from youtube to a stream that will play inside the building firewall. I discovered today that this does not always switch properly. It seems to play properly on the first try (IE and firefox), but if stopped and reloaded (or played through and restarted), it switches to the youtube player the second and subsequent times. I found that clearing the recent history in firefox, and then reloading the page would solve the problem. (I didn't check this for IE.)

For those wishing to check this out, the URL for the test stream is: http://motab.org/messiah/test

Their website lists their contact information as:

Choir Office
50 North West Temple Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84150
801-240-4150

I would suggest contacting them during business hours and explain the problem. I suspect alternatives to YouTube costs them money to stream, so they will only switch to that if needed. No harm in asking for a better solution.

I thought the filter policy was recently changed to allow YouTube in meetinghouses. Is that correct?

Last time I tried it, I didn't get a warning, but the videos I tried (from the Mormon Channel) wouldn't play either. Maybe they are in the process of opening it up, I don't know.

You can access YouTube, but any videos selected won't download.

An update -- The following week and since, I have found that the test video will play even after restart without needing to clear recent history.
