GC 2012 Priesthood Session Internet Stream

Postby jdlessley » Sat Mar 31, 2012 8:19 pm

This was the first time I viewed the priesthood session of general conference via a streamed Internet broadcast. We had minor, yet quite noticeable, issues. I do not know where the source of the problem lies. I suspect some of it may be computer related, but I am not sure. I am posting to see if any others who viewed the streamed session had issues also.

We experienced audio/video sync problems as well as changing focus, changing resolution and pixelation issues.

For the most part the audio was good. The exception was when the video and audio got out of sync and the recovery involved two audio problems. I guess the interval for adjustment was somewhere between five to ten minutes. I didn't keep track of timing since I was concentrating on the message and not the technical difficulties.

The first sync adjustment method caused the chopping off, or loss, of a short segment of audio when it was jumped ahead to catch up with the video. This caused the loss of a word or two, I guess, since I could not tell what exactly was lost. The second was the repetition of a few words when the audio was set back a brief moment.

Video had several issues. The first was the choppy, or halting, stream that would occur for around 15 to 20 seconds. This would be followed by loss of resolution and focus. This would slowly recover over a period of 40 to 60 seconds to halting pixelation and then to very sharp and in sync with audio period lasting from a couple of minutes to around 6 or 8 minutes.

There seamed to be a correlation between audio and video issues such as when re-syncing the two.

We are going to check with another stake location that viewed the streamed session to see what they experienced to see if both were the same.

I watched the priesthood session via the web myself. I found that it worked great. I didn't notice too much out of sync, but I did notice that a couple of time the video wasn't sharp and it repeated a couple of words, then in about a minute the system caught up to it. I was using wireless and I have a good connection to the Internet. Except for a couple of times, I found that it worked well for me.

On the Web over the Internet

The Priesthood session and the LDSTech Conference appears to be using Adobe Flash Player, HTMLS5, LDS Media Player and Brightcove Video Cloud to provide video content over the Internet

The LDSTech Conference even had a link "Click here to view on iOS" from their broadcast web site

We will have to wait until our friendly headquarters technical staff provides more information in a Wiki

Research Results for "Brightcove":

Worldwide Leadership Training online availability
"with flash disabled and then the brightcove server sends an html5 version instead "
