From my first Usergroup webcast attempt I have organized three more Webcasts through WWEvents/Livemeeting and by accident determined much of the phone noise was being caused by the MCI phone bridge not Live meeting.
I also found out that WWEvents stops accepting registrants if you list the event as a “Live Web Cast”- so i will create all the rest as “On Demand”
Please find below the status of the last three meeting we have done and the findings.
- Anthony Borton TFS talk QLD– About 20 people tried to watch but the phone noise was so horrible the audio convinced all of them to drop off before the end
- Itzik Ben, TSQL talk Vic – Since this event was being run as the EXACT same time as the one above and I only had three hours to put it together I did not use the phone bridge and it sounded beautifully! – Unfortunately Itzik was not familiar with Live Meeting did not share either his desktop nor application his web cast proved to be nothing more than a real time pod cast.
- Andrew Coates VSTO talk ACT– used the learning’s from Itzik and had live meeting dial his phone directly and it looked and sounded great!!!!
At this point I am going to send email to the user groups and anybody else (including NZ) and start scheduling all comers.
Have a great weekend and if any of you are in town don’t forget my Halloween Party!
Thanks to Andrew, Anthony and Itzik for being my guinea pigs!
