VCA 2012 Semi-Final Live Stream Schedule

Postby ngsilver » Mon Feb 06, 2012 7:36 pm

Alright ya'll. I know it's a little late, I was planning on doing all the Dl'ing and planning yesterday but got too into FF13-2. Anyway, so here is the Semi-Final Livestream schedule. Provided the Day/Time the stream will begin and which categories will be streamed. Due to the sheer amount of videos I'll be streaming them in sections each night.

So come sit down and enjoy this year's VCA Semi-final Selection.

The first livestream of the VCA Semi-finals went rather well. Had a nice turnout for such short notice. Yes, these streams will be quite long (aprox 4~6 hours) due to the sheer number of entries in each category (read 20) and the need to have these up by Saturday to allow for time to vote.

The first part livestream is now available in the direct video links at livestream or here: http://livestre.am/1h6OC . Also, the stream will play on repeat in the autopilot until the next livestream.

One final note, there was an issue during recording and livestream lost a good portion of the stream. I will be re-recording the stream during work tomorrow and once finished will place it back in place in the final pt1 video clip.

With that said and done, I look forward to seeing ya'll back for the next stream. Remember, it will start promptly at 8PM EST. We have a lot of vids to get through and the sooner we start the sooner we get done (and I can get some sleep.) Pretty good selection of videos so far, can't wait to see what the next batch brings.

I have finished re-recording the missing parts of the stream. I also re-recorded the first portion of the stream as well to fix clipping issues that were experienced due to poor network quality at the start of the stream last night.

Again, you can view Part 1 of the stream anytime at: http://livestre.am/1h6OC - I've also restarted the autopilot on the livestream account to replay the stream throughout the rest of the day. I look forward to streaming again with ya'll tonight!

I'll be there. I'll post a bulletin up on my youtube to see if it'll attract some people to the stream and the org too.

Tonight's stream has now completed. Best turn out so far. Thank you to everyone who joined in and stayed through the whole time. It's been fun chatting with ya'll about the vids as we watch. You can catch the pt3 stream here: http://livestre.am/1hgtj

As has been the case all week, the autopilot on the channel will play tonight's stream on repeat until the next stream. If you missed the stream you can always catch the on-demand version and the link above or on the livestream channel in the videos section.

So I ended up making a quick video to show a sampling of the VCA semi-finalists. I couldn't get every video in because of time mostly, but there were some technical issues with some of the videos and I couldn't get them to load properly to even work with, but anyways here it is:

I uploaded it to mediafire too for anyone who wants to get it and redistribute it on their channel to help support anything from the org, the vcas, or the livestream:

Tonight's stream is now complete. Seriously thanks to everyone who came out tonight to view the stream and especially to those who pimped it on their own. We once again doubled the max attendance tonight topping out at 72 viewers! Seems like small stuff in comparison to other streams but considering the somewhat short notice and what not, I think this is great! I hope to see all of ya'll back again tomorrow for the final batch of VCA semi-finalists!

You can find tonight's stream here: http://livestre.am/1hmfj - as always the other streams are also available for on-demand viewing on the livestream channel. Tonight's stream will replay in the channel until tomorrow's stream begins.

Spread the word, I wanna see if we can once again double our viewers or more :D

Well we didn't quite hit out max viewers from last night but tonight's stream was once again an awesome one. Many good topics to discuss and of course a lot of great videos. Long MEPs are long however.....

You can view tonight's stream on-demand here: http://livestre.am/1hrTi

As per the schedule, I have started the auto-pilot playing through all of this week's streams so far, starting with tonight's then looping back to part 1 and so on. This will continue until tomorrow night at 8PM when the next scheduled stream is set to start.

Next stream will be a special VCA edition of Nat-chan's Top 10. I will play through my top picks from the VCA semi-finalists. This will not be as long of a showing as the past week has been, more on average with previous showings so expect about 2~3 hours. Once completed I will throw another encore showing of the stream into the auto-pilot and then leave the auto-pilot to play through all of the semi-finalists constantly all day Sunday. No scheduled LIVE session is set for Sunday. I need a break to prepare and also win back some brownie points from Ruu-chan whom I have been kind of ignoring for AMVs all week ^^()

Look forward to seeing all of you back again for the next stream. Should be fun :D

I know I'm a bit late on posting this, but it took forever for Livestream to finish 'converting' the stream to a watchable format. Anyway, the final stream of the week is completed and is up for download for those of you who want to see it here: http://livestre.am/1hzrE

I seriously can't thank any of you who were tuning in enough for spending your week with me watching videos and chatting. It's been a great time missing out on playing FF13-2 in order to watch AMVs! I will be streaming the finalists in a similar style this coming week. I will post a new thread in order to keep track of that.

Looking forward to another fun week of AMVs :D
