@AndrewH Thanks :) I just gotta make myself push past the blahs :) Forcing myself to play on there again will help me work on it :)

Tested my new webcam on the StreetJelly test page, along with my old microphone. It works. I might want to do a live test run before scheduling an actual show. (Maybe earlier on Sunday before everyone plays?)

@AndrewH - good stuff!    As far as a test goes - I'll be away from home on Sunday until - let me think - 6pm my time (GMT) - probably that's 1pm EST

Myself and Mandy are scheduled for 8pm(GMT) and 8:30 - so - if you are EST zone then a quick test between your 1pm and 3pm (my 6 thru 8) shouldn't overlap our plans...  let me know and I can be there :)

I should be around, too, if you want to do a live test. Since my dog had one of his seizures I'll be home-bound this weekend keeping an eye on him, so I'm sure I'll be on the computer a lot, haha.

I overslept badly and have a few things I need to do, so I'll join the audience as soon as I can, and do a quick test run after Mandy's show. I'm scheduling my first actual show for half an hour after Mandy finishes.

Cool - I noticed you "active" (flagged as live) just after Mandy finished - but there was an error showing where the video would be "ID not found on server" - but maybe it was a very short test and it had already finished but the system hadn't caught up yet....   Seen that happen before...

StreetJelly isn't detecting my webcam for some reason. Just restarted my computer to see if that helps.

No luck. Funny, it worked fine on Friday. Now it won't even detect my webcam in test mode.

Skype uses the camera just fine. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Hmmm... OK...   does it still work in "Test Mode" ?    From what you said before, it did....   and which broadcast mode are you using - Flash or JellyCaster ?   Not that I can necessarily give an answer - but I have also seen issues with both modes on different browsers...  (oh yes, and which browser ?)

True, I have seen situations where my test broadcast was fine, but the live broadcast just didn't work...   I *THINK* it was due to some browser plugin I have - test mode was fine, live failed.   I swapped from Chrome to FireFox.   On a different computer, Chrome is fine.... so in my case it came down to "something on my machine" that messed with Chrome

That probably doesn't help....  just things to think about and try...

It doesn't work in test mode either. I'm using the Flash broadcaster, tried both Chrome and Internet Explorer.

D'oh....   but test mode DID work for you before I take it ?

What else... let me think - what's your broadband speed like ?   I used to be stuck with 512k ( really ) and had to use Flash - even then most broadcasts had bits of broken video according to viewers - although - happily - priority was evidently given to the audio stream which was largely unbroken.

If you have an outgoing ( upload ) bandwith of better than 750kbps ( or 1Mbps might be preferable ) - might be worth trying the JellyCaster mode ?????

Just thoughts Andrew

For my computer, I had to give up on the flash player. Various updates made broadcasting from it not work anymore (even when choosing "reload page with flash").  What works for me is Firefox and using Jellycaster.

Yes, it worked perfectly on Friday. I have plenty of upload bandwidth (3 Mbps), but JellyCaster doesn't appear as an option in my browser. (The button is grayed out and unclickable.)

This really stinks. The next time I can be around for Strings on Sunday is mid-January. I'll be either busy our out of town every Sunday until then.

Everything lately seems to be flash issues, so I'll just blame that, haha. 

Is your flash up to date? https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-.....layer.html

I think in Chrome you have to go through the settings and allow Flash to run, either on a specific website or always (I'm afraid I can't remember exactly how you do this, I don't have Chrome on my laptop).

On my Mac I have to still go through and ask it to reload page with flash, something that doesn't work with Broadcasting, because it resets the broadcast, and they both keep canceling each other out.

Just got it to work! It was my Flash security settings after I updated Chrome.

Yay! From everything I've read, they are purposely making Flash harder to use because the application is making its exit. It's not fair, since it is still around.
