On Monday I’m going to be presenting Tweetcamp III, and instead of a phone conference call or using our Mayo Clinic AV department resources am planning to do a video Webcast using uStream.tv.
So I’m doing a little experiment tonight, and embedding the code from my uStream program, which I’ve dubbed ChancellorCast, here on the SMUG site.
At 9:30 p.m. EDT/8:30 CDT/6:30 PDT tonight, I’m going to do a brief test of uStream, for about 10 or 15 minutes. If you’re able to see and hear me, I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment below.
I want to test this with a smaller group, so that for #tweetcamp3 we can have the kinks worked out.
Appreciate your feedback and help.
Update 9:15 CDT: Thanks to all who participated. I think you helped me prepare so we can have a good experience Monday. I’ve embedded a video below that I recorded with uStream, which gives a bit of an overview of Tweetcamp III.

Lee, it’s working on the SMUG site, but I am having a hard time hearing you with all of the speakers turned up. Wonder if anyone else is having the same problem!

It’s working for me… although I agree it is on the quiet side as I have my volume maxed and still kind of strain to hear… FWIW, I am using a Mac browing with Safari and it’s looking great.
Once you moved closer to the microphone, it was clearer, then it muted and then it echoed terribly. Video was fine (using IE7). Hope this helps!
Thanks to all of you for your feedback. I’m going to try another one tomorrow, I think, and see how I can further tweak. One thing I can do might be turning down the audio on my speakers, which might have caused the echo.
