MIX 11 - Not doing live sessions this year?

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse

    Not seeing anything about the sessions being streamed live. Is it just the keynotes going out in a stream?

  • Michael Butler

    Where there streamed live sessions last year? (I can't remember)

    They were usually up to view within 24hrs of being filmed.

    @Harlequin: I can't see that happening. The internet is how the world works, especially allowing people to attend conferences virtually

  • jeffsand

    Keynotes will be streamed live at http://live.visitmix.com

     

    Be sure to tune in on day 2 where some members of  channel 9 team will have a significant role in the final 20 minutes of the keynote.

     

    All keynotes and breakouts will be available here on channel 9 in the events area within about 24 hours.

    Just a note - I and many others rely on the downloads as although in theory I have 8GB in reality my connection is not fast enough to stream videos without an impossible amount of stutter.

    Please try to get the downloads up ASAP!

     

    Thanks, and good luck with the keynote!

  • Michael Butler

    I'll second the request to get the downloads available ASAP. Keynotes especially. I had planned to finish work early to watch them live, but sadly that isn't going to happen.

    I'll be happy if I can stream it from the beginning a few hours after the keynote is finished.

    @Harlequin: Last year it was the same for MIX. The keynotes and channel 9 LIVE were streamed but the sessions were posted (app.) 24 hours after recording.

    It was for PDC10 each sessions was live streamed, but this was because at Microsoft Campus they have the bandwidth and control over the network to do such a thing.

    You got it. Smiley The plan is within 24 hours to have a streaming version *and* downloadable versions too. You should start seeing the breakout sessions tomorrow morning (9:00 am PST) and the keynote later today.

    @jeffsand: thanks for this. managed to watch the keynote a couple of hours after it finished. Although, I think somebody needs to work on the Streaming Server config, as it hit buffering quiet a lot Wink

    Now, if only if there was a version that cut the IE lovefest and Chrome hating at the beginning and just started with Scott Gu and his dev-div team. Wink

  • Ian2

    Yeh, the whole Chrome bashing thing was a little ill advised and unnecessary - it reflected badly on those concerned - but I guess no serious damage was done.

    Personally I just want Win8 Tablet on Arm with WP7 like marketplace ASAP.  The whole HTML5 thing is a bit tedious (it's overdone).

  • samdrodpaul

    yes its definitely a case of tall poppy chrome syndrome

    i want some more from the HTML5 and Silverlight 5 stuff

    maybe some MVVM from Laurent bugnion aswell

    Thanks anywho channel 9

    We're sorry about that. We have made many tweaks with our upstream provider and from reviewing Twitter and our app logs appear that issues have been resolved. If you continue to have problems please let us know and make sure you tune into tomorrow's keynote.

    Lots of great new stuff and plenty of representation from folks you've seen on Channel 9 before including many folks from my team in the final 20 minutes. Smiley

    See you all tomorrow.

    @jeffsand: I appreciate all the effort you guys are putting into making this a great experience for us "remote" keynote attendees.

    It's so great to see the keynote almost straight after its finished (live kinda clashes with my journey home after work), that a little bit of buffering doesn't put me off to much.

    Thanks guys for the hardwork and I'm really looking forward to todays keynote.
