I thought it would start by now. I assume the stream is going to be at http://www.microsoftpdc.com/ but it's not there atleast yet on the main page ?? Wonder who thought it was good idea to leave this sort of testing at the last minute instead of attempting to start the stream hours before the keynote.
A direct link to the stream would be nice since maybe the problem is that Azure doesn't update every server serving that page simultaneously.
@androidi: I'm waiting on it too. Is it just going to be in the grid or is there another page for it? This is very poorly designed.
Add the session to your calendar. In the calendar item will be a link to the video. Absolutely horrible usability. #Fail
It is streaming now.. you just can't get to it except through the calendar.
@sodapop: That's handy. I just uninstalled Office the other day so I can't open that. I guess I'll have to install Office to watch a video.
Edit: Ok I opened the ICS in notepad and it had a link to the actual player. Whew.
@sodapop: Wow, that is a UX fail. Thanks for the info.
You don't need Office to open .ics files. They're text files.
The player, once I got it running, is pretty nice but yeah what a backwards way to get at it.
@Raiven: They forgot to update the HTML version of http://player.microsoftpdc.com/ with the 'PLAY' button. The Silverlight app had the play button in the guide, but you con't not get to it from the main website.
Yeah. Did the 12:30 ScottGu chat even happen? Root site had no play button, then I did /session and there finally the ScottGu play link ended up on a C9 chat.
