So according to last week's show notes, the Force-Cast for March 12 will be hosted on USTREAM. The link for the Force-Cast channel can be found here (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/force-cast). I haven't taken too close of a look at USTREAM but it looks cool. Look forward to seeing you all there!

As will I. It's a bit nostalgic, in a way. Many a Force-Cast fan has grown up in the era of Force-Cast LIVE, and the switch to Ustream -- while a welcome one -- comes with a few detriments. For one thing, I actually like the bubble chat a lot more than the IRC-style that we'll now be using. And seeing as Ustream is not interactive beyond the text chat, I have to wonder how we'll call in and talk to them.

Next week we should all have a farewell toast to Talkshoe. After all, that's where it all started for us getting involved with a live show. I hope the guys pay homeage to TS one last time.

Ok, the Force Cast will be on Ustream. I get that.
Is is going to be a video cast?
If so, will it still be audio only too?
Can we still call in?
Will there be any kind of chat?
Is Darth Vader my father?

Not sure about that.


If so, will it still be audio only too?


Ustream video quality is pretty poor for podcasts. Even if they stream video through the service, I bet the podcast will still be audio-only.


Can we still call in?


As hard as it is for me to say this, I don't think so. But I sent Jason and Pete my report on Skype, so hopefully we'll be able to migrate over there at some point.


Will there be any kind of chat?


There is an IRC-style chat on the Force-Cast's Ustream page.


Is Darth Vader my father?


Yes. And your wife is actually your sister. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Even if you can't get live calls, there is always "live" emails

TallestJawa
03-08-2008, 04:05 PM
Maybe it would be better for J+P to just read people's "live" comments. Everyone likes to have their voice heard, but it does lead to so many problems. (fake calls, feedback loops, volume issues, dead air, nervous callers, "Koolguy", etc.) Having J+P read the feedback lets them screen the "calls" as well. I know it is more work for them, but maybe we should leave the on-air voice to the professionals.

If they do ever go to video, then we won't have to do FCTV anymore! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

While I see what you're saying, and while you make some good points, I couldn't disagree more regarding live calls. The majority of listeners who call in don't have problems with their equipment (the last two weeks were abnormalities). Plus, everyone likes to interact with Jason and Pete, and it doesn't feel the same to be typing questions to them. Plus, what would the show sound like if they were the only side of the conversation that Friday listeners could hear? I'm sure you Jawas must have realized that.

We agree with you. We can certainly see the draw of the live calls and the reason for having them. It is a close call, weighing the good vs. the bad. But from our point of view, the scales tip towards live calls being problematic. This view is fully from the side of the later listener. There are no major problems for listening live, that's what you get on a live show. But to keep the delayed podcast sounding as professional as possible, until the Force Cast can afford more resources (a call-screener, more editing of the final show, etc.), for now we think it would be best to remove live calls.

This is just our opinion and we certainly know there is another side to this.

Well said!

About the live calls/no live calls debate, I'm kinda leaning with the Jawas on this; I know most of the time live calls go over very smoothly, but when they don't they break the rhythm of the show, besides giving it an amateurish feel (which, admittedly, is part of the charm http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif ).

I'm sure the change to Ustream will be for the better, so bye bye talkshoe!

I love FCTV, and want to see that continued no matter if we get video going or not. if we do then it just gives you more to play with ;-)

We want folks to be ablt to call into the show, we love that interaction no matter what and will continue to tweak and fine tune that as we move forward.

I never imagined this would take off so well as it has, thank you all for listening and I encourage you continue to help spread the good word by telling other fans about our show!

I do agree with you, TJ.
It's not a matter of saying that live calls are bad ... It's the way they ultimately sound in the final product.
They need a little refining (screening, editing, you name it) before they reach a J+P quality level.

Listening to the Force-Cast is like driving on a smooth straight road to Theed, and live calls sometimes feel like a bumpy ride on Dathomir ! (obscure SW Galaxies reference)


Oh ... and our Jawa parenthood has nothing to do with my agreeing with you http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I think the problem comes from being a streaming feed. Any interruptions on either sides connection will cause momentary drop-outs. It happened on TS as well, hence the momentary "record skipping" sounds.

It'll happen occasionally with the calls as well, since we're using a VOIP interface (Skype).

I loved the Ustream it so much better than Talk Shoe.

The chat was also a step up from the TS one in my opinion.

The only problem I had with the chat was when I was typing I would have letters of words missing and have to go back and fix them before posting. Did anyone else have this happen?

Might be just my computer/connection.

I too would have the audio drop for a moment and then would come back right back on.

All in all a vast inprovement to a top notch show.

Would you believe me if I told you that I missed it? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif Shocking, I know, but this was back when I didn't have Presidential power. I was only able to attend CIV from Thursday to mid-Sunday-morning. As such, I missed the live event. Needless to say, CV will absolutely -- hehe -- be different.

Is it wrong to want it to start now?

Last night was my first time listening live on Ustream and I was so impressed with the general sound quality. Except for a few stray audio clips it sounded pretty close to the Friday version at least compared with talkshoe. The music before the show sounded great too.

There is a little mini-window that you chat on. I didn't download anything, but I did register my name.

It's set up so that you have to be registered in order to chat. It does help to keep some undesirables out.

ARGH! Every time Wednesday rolls around, I get all prepared and excited to hang out and listen to the live Force Cast, and then something comes up. Less than 5 minutes ago, my neighbor came over and asked me to watch her kids at 6. I can't be a jerk and so no, so once again, I have to miss FC live http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Oh well, you win some you lose some. But next week, I will absolutely, positively get in on the force cast live. Have fun guys!

Just to let everyone know, there is indeed a way to make the Ustream chat window a whole lot bigger. Use this link (http://www.ustream.tv/channel-room/128159), and you'll be taken to a chat-only page that takes up the top half of the browser window. It's not full screen just yet, but it's a whole lot better.

The Force-Cast username was in the chat room on the new URL yesterday. They do know about the new page. I suspect that they engineered the change themselves. I haven't heard reports of Ustream relocating mass numbers of pages. But I could be wrong.

It appears that the old Ustream link for the FC is now active again (the one without the "0" at the end:

Anybody else had problems with UStream's search feature. I've typed in Force-Cast several times into the main search box at the top of the main page, and I get about 5 pages of results, none of them the show (or the chat)

You have to search for "force cast" (sans the quotes) to locate our FC listing. It is the first listing that comes up.

Searching under a different spelling (with the dash let's say) will return wrong results.

Hey guys. Hope you enjoy UStream. It's different than TS. With UStream, it will give you extra time that you won't have to deal with calls being dropped, not understanding callers, getting frustrated with the buttons on screen... Ah well, live and learn. Have fun, gents!

I wish I could tell you that they'll be back -- in greater numbers, even -- but unfortunately the only Jawa noises we'll be hearing are those from FCTV. If that show ever comes back on. In my opinion, it's the Night Shift of the Internet! (take that for what you will, Jawas... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif )

I think we should rename this thread to "FORCE-CAST LIVE". We're not using Ustream anymore. Plus, calling it "Force-Cast Live on Stickam" would defeat the purpose of what the FC boys are trying to do: host their stream on TFN itself. "FORCE-CAST LIVE" is a flexible title for whatever format they end up going to.
