World of Apple
Thank you very much!!!!
I don’t understand How noone can get a streaming video into this place I mean come on I want to see it LIVE not, Oh I will type in a couple of sentences every 5min. ending in boom.
I promise I will not type a sentence in every five minutes (how about every minute or two) and I will use “boom” no more than seven times.
The biggest problem with it is the simple fact that it will cost a fortune in bandwidth. I think World of Apple is going to try it. They tried it last year, but I never saw it working.
Engadget, for example, gets about a million pageviews during a keynote – there’s just no way to support that kind of simultaneous streaming. That’s why Apple has stopped streaming the event live.
great new! I can’t wait for MacWorld!!!
I think you mentioned on the podcast, but where will the live blogging be taking place from Apple Gazette? Twitter or here?
Liveblogging of the Keynote will take place at:
but I will mention it in the main feed, of course, when it starts.
MacSpark.net will also be doing live coverage of the keynote.
Just sent you guys an email about this, but there’s also https://www.stevenotelive.com
ok, i’m not a computer engineer, but let’s solve this bandwidth dilemma.
all they’d have to do is put the stream on a delay. 2, 3, even 5 minutes would not be the end of the world.
in the few minutes that everyone is waiting for new video data, send it out to lots and lots of servers everywhere around the country and or world which will serve the stream. this data could even be shared by torrent-esque delivery or whatever if that will make it all work.
boom. we can watch the keynote.
on second thought, torrent delivery wouldn’t work because the servers will demand the data in sequence.
a new delivery mechanism is required.
let’s say we split the video up into pieces of 10-second length, just for kicks. we build a hierarchical tree of servers… for example, maybe the top server delivers to four below it, which each do the same.
so with n levels of our server hierarchy we’ll have 4^n + 1 servers ready to stream the video out to users. make the tree as big as you need it but keep it so that all the data will replicate itself down within the delay window you’ve set.
1. Go to Wikipedia and type in “multicast”.
2. Prepare to be blown away.
try searching for sopcast 😀
Don’t forget there are likely to be IRC channels, and maybe google chats too.
Nice information.Very informative.Thanks
Um, what about Digg?
Appletell is planning a variety of live events, includng a live audio stream. Check it out:
Digg is only a series of links to these other sites. If they were providing their own coverage they would be on the list.
iPhone 24×7 will also be covering Macworld and specifically any news related to the iPhone. You can find it at https://www.iphone24-7.com/
CunningTV at https://cunning.tv/ will also be providing coverage 😉
apple is showing the video on their website, but i’m sure it’ll be overloaded with hits and may either crash, lock viewers out after a while, or run very slow.
Apple is *NOT* showing the video live. They stopped doing that in… 2005? They release the stream on the website either in the evening or on Wednesday.
why not use a service like ustream or whatever service Scoble is using to stream from his Nokia to stream video from the keynote?
I cant wait for keynote!!
Thanks for sharing
Iâ€™d prefer reading in my native language, because my knowledge of your languange is no so well. But it was interesting! Look for some my links:
