Using Youtube Live Streaming to broadcast an Ops Session



Today's Ops session was available for viewing live on Youtube using Hangouts on Air. The embedded video above is the recording of the session. I haven't edited the recording all, so the first 90+ minutes are me and Balazs chatting, while the microphone was muted. I need to use a different (web) camera. Should do the recording in HD.

Since I haven't operated a full schedule on the layout for a couple months, and rather built scenery instead, there were various issues both mechanical and with the computer control, thus the action in the recording is limited ...

Nevertheless, it was an interesting experiment and I might do this again some other time.

Unfortunately I can't watch the video because the music 'may not have been licenced' by our music licencing authority.

From the still picture it seems there is a lot more of the layout than shown in the previous picture. Have you posted a plan somewhere?

Youtube Live events cannot be viewed from Germany Digital Rights management can be infuriating.

This post from a couple years ago has a basic layout of the track plan. Details have changed since, but it should give you an idea...

It looks like the recording now got swapped in on the Youtube side, so in theory this should now be visible in Germany, too.
