Ustream.tv Made Me Angry

I had really hoped to have a live video questions and answers session this evening, but Ustream.tv made that impossible. After over an hour of trying to get things to work, I have given up. I tried on both computers, in multiple browsers, using multiple microphones and video cameras. The video worked great, but no audio was getting through.

Without any support, I feel like Ustream.tv ruined what could have otherwise been the saving grace of my horrible day.

What’s worse is that I know it isn’t browser or Flash specific as I was able to transmit video and audio just fine on Justin.tv. Maybe that will be where I will hold my video sessions from now on.

For those that didn’t get a chance to chat with me. I am planning on trying again soon on Justin.tv or if you know of a better live video service, please let me know. Yahoo! Live is not a good suggestion at this point, though I have high hopes for the service.

Oh well, I guess I will just have to watch the season finale of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
