Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

OK.  We got 11 definite "yeses", so I think we can move along to the implementation stage.

[
Ghosty, I'm not sure of 'vent's' capabilities, but I think it's only for the voice and chat.  In the other thread we talked about ways to stream video, or let people rent (who don't have the movie) the movie to watch at home.  We're trying to do this for free, so it may have a few hiccups.  Give me $10K and I'll have a full-on thing goin' on (minus copyright issues of course.  I got no money to pay for fines).   

Dar did mention a (free) program called VLC that can do streaming; he's looking into it to see  how that may figure into the streaming idea.
]

Hey Dar, if we can get 3-5 people to do a test tech run on some different configurations, you up for it?  Check out the different options, see what works, etc?

My (befuddled) thinking is:

*Try out just the vent voice + chat.
*(Maybe) See if we can add streaming video as an option for those who can handle it
*Drink some fine green tea

Small test group, small start.  Even getting that little bit would be interesting.

Very nice!  I ran out of my monkey picked a while ago, seems they had/have a shortage.

Aidan- so far it's mostly me and Dar.   Any input is welcome.  None of us have done this kind of thing before, so.....

Yeah weekends are probably best but not to worried any day works big_smile

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

720P webcam, properly positioned, direct audio, Skype,..... it can be done. I miss CUCME, it worked very well for things like this.

I still prefer watching with actual physical company though. Anyone in Calgary Alberta that wants to set up something feel free to message me. I only have one friend into horror films, and it pretty much has to be freaky Asian pseudo-porn for him to watch.

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

OK peoples, could this be the one thread we try to NOT derail?  Please?

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

I officially declare this thread back on topic.  Or else.

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

Thanks, bro.

I'm gonna take a break from this, I still gotta do a project for Machete, and the logistics of this is grinding me down.  Not giving up, just a day off. 

Everyone else- keep throwing out the ideas and such.

Did I do something bad to you Swollen?  Something I don't know about?  Do you hate me? 

I just watched the entire horrid clip and I didn't hear that line.  Have you watched that clip?  Do you know how painful it was?  Then to not even hear that line!!?!?

Not your fault, you just replied.  And for the record, I'm not blaming anyone.  Just don't need the clutter.
Thanks, all.

AZ Complaining about clutter and going off topic shenanigans. The world has turned upside down! Besides this thread is no longer useful! Asking if we want this is like asking if wolf man likes boobies! We need the when where and how thread.

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

i'll check on us a ventrilo server we can use tonight, should not be a problem at all, going from there at the sec.

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

Yes I am interested in joining in. What are some movie suggestions?

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

I've also got a line on a vent server, and would be willing to be part of the crew that figures how the heck to get us up and running. Doc, if/when you've got one we can try, let me know!

And if you can't find one, I'll see if I can get on one here.

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

Maybe we should keep this thread for technology, now that we know we have enough people, and start a thread for choosing a movie?

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

Thanks Doc and dar!

Dirty...we're not at this point yet...but feel free to come up with some.

Re: HM Virtual Movie Night Proposal

I have us a vent server now, we can use it any night but Monday or Wednesday, i'm curious on the movie myself,  we may be able to get permission for a certain indie film that we have the creator for a member here.
