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.
