Testing Google Hangout

This is a test of the emergency quilt cam broadcast system.
This is only a test!
I want to see if I can imbed a google hangout -- it's supposed to record into youtube...so it will be viewable by others later...and this might be the answer to our problem!
If it doesn't work -- back to the drawing board...bear with me...it's almost 11pm at night and I'm tired but determined!

  8. Looks nice and crisp Bonnie,
    and it will be GREAT if it is saved on Youtube, so those of us on different time zones can catch it when it suits us.
    A good move, I'd say. Google stuff is often great- and free!

  9. Wow ! that was great, will be so nice to not miss out on Quiltcam because of work etc.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sound great and picture slightly blurred but that's not a problem really. So much better than tonight's experience.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Even though you were a little blurry from your trip last week, I still enjoyed quiltcam. This one seems to be coming in good and I can replay for later, yeah!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. 15 minutes after you recorded, Im seeing it, on your website....Awesome! This might do the trick! Good luck!
    Wonder if it will be "live time" when you record and share the link? I really like watching you at the same time you are on camera :)

  29. It sounds like the perfect solution!! See you Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just watched it at 9:07 pm, in California. Might be the answer.

    ReplyDelete
  31. this is great! i missed quilt cam as i was at work but i came home and voila! there is bonnie, recorded previously.....a fantastic idea...better than sliced bread i'd say....

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks like you got it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ah Bonnie, what a happy surprise to come home to find your tape, I do hope that this works out for you. I was sorry to have missed your quiltcam tonight as my sil and I went out to an Irish performance, so I was doubly happy to see you now. Looking forward to Friday night.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yay it worked very well, I look forward t0 being able to see you on QuiltCam again and watching episodes that I could watch live. Thanks Bonnie you are amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice, clear picture ---but the audio was out of sync w/pic. Wonder if others had the problem??? Hope this works out for you. It is fun watching your show.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I had to leave for quilt guild and missed seeing most of the Quilt Cam. Showed off my Easy "BUSY" Street and got to Brag that I'll be seeing you next week! So FUN I can hardly wait!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. Checking in at 9:33 pm PST and that is great. I seldom get to watch Quiltcam so love that we can watch later. It was very clear.
    Thanks for all you do.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sooo Cool!! Now if we miss you, we can catch up later. Thank you so much for all you do for us. We do appreciate it so much.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I missed Quilt-Cam tonight as I have been under the weather the last couple of days and was asleep when you came on tonight. Imagine my surprise when I was treated with a very nice and clear recording of you testing out Google+ where I normally found nothing! I'm sorry Quilt-Cam itself didn't go well tonight, but VERY happy you have found a workable solution. We'll have an added bonus of being able to see Quilt-Cam after work (or after we wake up) instead of completely missing it. You really ROCK!!! Thanks for all you do for us Bonnie! We really appreciate it! Sleep well. :-)

  43. On your blog the picture is blurry for me and the sound is not with your lips. On You Tube the picture is a bit better. A couple of times you moved closer to the camera and it was closer to being in focus. The same thing happened on webcam when you moved the camera. Things up close were very clear. The sound on You Tube matches your lips as long as you aren't moving, which seems to cause memory overload. Viewing directly from UStream wasn't too bad for me. Some of the same problems as above, but not bad. Might I suggest trying to use some sort of light to brighten the area being recorded to see if that helps the picture quality? Maybe the computer would not need to process so much information to try to brighten the picture and keep it in focus at the same time. Only a guess. The camera I use for Skype is an external camera with LED lighting. The subject is relatively close and is always in focus with proper sound timing. Just a simple suggestion to try.

  44. It's perfect Bonnie - well done!!!

  45. Bonnie, It is 1 a.m. on Wed. morning and I am checking my emails and some of the blogs I follow. Your's is one of my favorites and there you were, saying you were running a test. It worked great from your blog. I love this idea because I sometimes have a conflict with the quilt cam time and I am so disappointed when I cannot watch it. Thanks for all your effort to connect with us.

    ReplyDelete
  46. WOW! YIPPPEE!!! It was so nice to come to your page and find out I missed a broadcast, but I didn't miss it, I was able to watch it. I am liking this Google Plus and I sure hope it works out so all the folks all over the world can watch (and not in the middle of their night, lol) whenever they log on. Thanks again Bonnie for a great night of QuiltCam!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes, I agree too. It is 11:17 pm. California time and I watched your test! Yippee! I hope it will be a good fit for you because it is nice to be able to tune in and see what you did even if I can't be there in person. Thanks for making all the effort to do this! It is really above and beyond and we appreciate all the time and money you have spent to get this working for all of us. Thanks again- We do love your work and your freely given love through quilting is a blessing to us all. K-

  48. I was asleep last-night when QuiltCam was on. This morning I saw your test. Looks good!

  51. Hi Bonnie. I have just watched this at 06:50 in the uk and it is clear picture and the sound is clear. This would be great for me living in the UK because I very rarely get to watch quiltcam. I hope you got a good nights sleep in the end

  54. Thanks for finding a way to do it, this is so great. I'm very glad that it's go8ing to be available later. I always missed it when you were doing it before.

  55. Yea! It worked! And I replayed it here on the west coast, past midnight!

  59. hi bonnie, just watched your test broadcast embedded from your post this morning, 9am GMT (UK) and it worked fine, good image & clear sound!Have a great week :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Good morning Bonnie. I watched the video at 0500. It's working, but there does seem to be a small disconnect between voice/mouth sync at time. Want to say, much improved from last night. Nice to have it available to watch later!!!!! I give it a thumbs up.

  61. Really good - glad you've overcome the problems

    ReplyDelete
  62. This test worked so well here in the UK. If you go with this system it means I can watch Quilt Cam over breakfast, and also throughout the day when I am actually quilting. That would be so good. It's a win-win situation for me!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Good Morning. Google Hangout looks great and sounds great. Your voice and your lips match with no delay. Clear crisp picture. Two thumbs up!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is great!!!!! I love the fact that I can watch it whenever!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Bonnie, I am looking at this on Wednesday morning. Yeah! This is a great solution. I'm looking forward to being with you on the Ireland trip.

    ReplyDelete
  66. 9.15pm Wednesday 13 March - all good, but then I (somehow) have never had problems :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm so excited that this worked. Now I will get to see the Quilt Cam more often. Great Job Bonnie!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wow! This is great. I missed quilt cam last night because I had a quilt group meeting to attend. Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and checked your blog. There you were, telling me that you were testing something new. And I could see and hear you just fine. I love it! Thank you for all the work you do to reach out to us. You are an amazing person!

    ReplyDelete
  69. hey cool, I just started watching when I could and that was not always possible, now with recording stuff I can !!!!!! remember that utube now has ads...before every session...seems you cant get away from ads anymore and they are really annoying! good luck and I think recording your shows is the way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  70. YES YES YES I can see you very clear in northern NY and you sound great! Way to go!
    Blessings,

  71. It looks perfect!! And I love the idea of being able to watch anytime. Can't wait. I wasn't able to watch the ustream on my ipad, but I bet I'll be able to watch this youtube!! So excited!

    ReplyDelete
  72. It's 6:30 am central time on March 13 and it is still working great. I am thrilled I will be able to watch the ones I miss.

    ReplyDelete
  73. It´s working for me in Sweden too, great!

    ReplyDelete
  74. This looks great! It was so disappointing not to be able to get quilt cam last night. If this works we can watch even when you're traveling! Hooray!

    ReplyDelete
  75. It's Wednesday morning and I can hear and see you clearly! Hope you find one that works! Best of luck!

    ReplyDelete
  76. It is 6 am here in South Dakota and I just watched the test. It worked great. I love the idea that it is on youtube and I can play back the feed. That way if you are not there and I need something to sew by I can just watch a repeat. I do that with Pat Sloans radio broadcasts.

  77. Hi Bonnie, it's 8 am the 13th and I was able to watch your video on your blog! How wonderful to be able to embed them. It looked fine...Julierose

    ReplyDelete
  78. Yeah! It's working at 8a.m. I just can't remember the evening ones so I'm so glad to finally be able to see these. Great job, Bonnie!

  79. Looks grea this morning in Virginia Bonnie. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for all your teaching and sharing!

  80. Wow, this looks great! The sound is SO much better. Your mouth moves at the same time as the audio and is much smoother than Ustream, plus the video is good, too.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I watched it and the sound and picture were great. Yay, you did it

    ReplyDelete
  82. f
    abulous here in UK I can now watch all your "quilt cam " episodes

    ReplyDelete
  83. This seems to work much better than last night's quilt cam. When I made it full screen, you looked a little fuzzy, but the ironing board and other items in the background were very clear.

    ReplyDelete
  84. How exciting! A recorded Quilt Cam! You work so hard to benefit all of us. Thanks for all you do. Looks great! Have a quilty day! Enjoy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Test coming in loud and clear in Manassas, VA. Also just watched the video from the Friday before your trip, also loud and clear. It was up last night after your session and when I went back this morning it was still there and I watched the whole hour and a half. Nice recording still had ads but nice anyway because it's one that I missed.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am usually working during Quiltcam, and even if I have a minute to watch, I get interrupted. Fabulous idea!!!!

  88. It sure looks a good to me; and what a fabulous fabulous bonus it would be if there is possibility of watching quilt cam, even if we had another commitment during the live time. Wouldn't that be a huge help to those in far away time zones too?

    ReplyDelete
  89. Works for me! I went to YouTube and was able to watch it there also. Thank you so much for always going above and beyond for your devoted followers!

  92. It works great this morning Bonnie. Now I'll have to try it on my kindle or I will be fight hubby for the computer friday night! LOLLL!

  93. Watching this little clip on Wednesday morning...the background is very clear but you are a bit fuzzy. I think this is your camera not the carrier, but since I've done neither, how would I know??! Love quilt cam but the time difference between the east coast and west coast puts you here when I am usually cooking dinner or eating with my DH! I'll take you with me when I cook, but I feel it is so rude to have you at the dinner table and not feed you!!! Thank you so much for all you do for all of us - you are the best!!!

  94. It is now almost 1:30 on Wednesday afternoon. I often can watch in the evenings, so it was great to be able to see it the next day. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

  95. I'm watching it in Australia 10.30am 14 March my time and it will be lovely to see you and hear you preferably live! But afterwards is better than missing out due to work and time differences! Thank you so much! Eddie

  96. The picture and audio are just great on your Google test. I think you are right--they blackballed you! I have always had success with quiltcam until last night.

  97. It was almost perfect here in Athens, Greece!
