11:37:19 Dennis: When URLs are given here, for me they are not copyable or clickable. Why?
11:37:31 Randy: can you paste the skypecast link again?
11:37:38 JL:
11:37:40 JL: oops
11:37:42 JL: standby
11:37:58 JL:
11:38:03 Randy: thanks!
11:38:08 carlaarena: during the other skypecast we had, people didn´t say who they were, so it was hard for me to tell who was speaking, so I guess this is something we should pay attention to
11:38:37 carlaarena: true.
11:39:23 Dennis: Thanks!
11:39:29 carlaarena: or just hold the ctrl key!
11:40:46 carlaarena: I guess that´s what makes a webcast really special, cheryl
11:43:30 carlaarena: lol
11:48:56 Trevor: Which USB headset are you using? A facutly development program at SDSU recommends Logitech 350 -- great sound!

12:09:03 carlaarena: we can hear you, cheryl
12:09:40 alicebarr: CeHryl can you hear Jeff
12:10:11 alicebarr: Try yeour bitrat?
12:11:58 JL:
12:14:50 Trevor: I lost the window that allows me to ask for the microphone
12:14:58 JL: For me the biggest hurdle initially was broadcasting from within the school network. I could not connect to the stream due to filters at schools so I had to be connected by the home team (Dave, Jeff, Alex, etc) and host from Skype which does work at the school. From home streaming is easy, but I had to work on making sure all the audio settings on the mac were set correctly so I could be heard on the stream. By watching the audio LEDs in Nicecast, I know if I am getting a signal from my voice as well as from the participants joining me. Echo/Sound Test Service (echo123 in Skype) will give you a connection to test this detail.
12:16:09 cheryl-lost-oakes: i can't get to server
12:20:30 Trevor: Is there a way of copying the text from the chat room?
12:21:00 alicebarr: 5th button from the left
12:21:08 carlaarena: trevor, clikc on the 5th button
12:21:24 Trevor: Thanks!!!
12:23:25 carlaarena: i´ll have to leave now. bye. I´ll keep trying out things!
12:23:35 carlaarena: jeff, thanks for your help
12:25:28 Trevor: Thanks for great introduction to Webcasting for our workshop participants here at LARC in San Diego. I'm a little behind in the webcasting, but I'll catch up -- anyway a lot is being learned along the way.
