I have been trying to get usteam to work on the old laptop I put in the chapel.  I think more people can watch ustream at once, whereas only 7 can watch at the same time with the present service.

Ustream keeps crashing my browsers.

    Dear Fr. Z,

    Whenever I see “Grrr” I think of the fight song of my alma mater, the University of California at Berkeley. Go to the Cal Band website if you would like to hear the song. Go bears!!!

    What browser are you using? I sometimes have problems in Internet Explorer but Firefox usually works fine for ustream

  4. Josh: Firefox, IE, Opera…

    How ’bout the computer you are using? Have you cleaned the cache, history, temp files, etc, and if not a Mac, downloaded spybot to clean all the other stuff?

  6. The protocol is to turn cell phones off while in church. This is the first time I’ve heard of a laptop in chapel. My suggestion is put a notice in the parish bulletin to, “Kindly leave laptops at home (or in the car).” Of course if the Mass is in the Ordinary Form, the priest could make a pulpit announcement in the vernacular …

    What is a laptop doing in the chapel anyway?

    I would contemplate wiping out the laptop and installing just Windows and Firefox (or Ubuntu and Firefox). Minimizing the number of running services and programs will improve stability.

    Ustream’s troubleshooting page says that there are known issues with Adobe Flash and some webcams. They suggest some alternate software.
