Hey guys,
Wasn't there a catastrophic fail last year of the live video on the www?
I've got an itpv headend at work and a 10 mb fibre link to the www, I could stream the free to air coverage in Aus into the internet for fellow Aussies and SA'ers who are remote.(as mentioned prior, the coverage is not the best but it's live)
Problem is you would need to stream it to a hosting site like utube, something I am no expert at.
Any experts on streaming video to you tube or suchlike where people could watch, albeit it might be delayed some seconds for buffering etc?
The www is unicast, so I would have to stream to some website that could handle multiple simultaneous viewings.
Does SA have any capability in this area,aka the OTW video part of the site?
SB

Awesome, I will be in Ht Hood, OR for the start.

Wouldn't there be some copyright issues with streaming a live broadcast straight to YouTube or a similar site??

Hi Gorn,

Yep, potentially. I punched out a formal request to Channel7 and also Optus Vast, will see where we sit.

I know for sure we can't charge for FTA, and the intent is cerainly not to, so I am hoping this is the difference.

Streaming the existing coverage to another site would definitely violate all sorts of Aus copyright laws.  You could do it with a VPN and keep yourself hidden that way, we'd surely run it if you did...and delete these posts from the thread! :)



Justin.TV is free, Ustream is free if you take the SD option and be careful with what you sign up for, livestream has a free plan too.

Or if he makes a valid formal request from a valid formal broadcaster he doesn't have to worry.

 

But good luck with 'doing it with a vpn' and hiding from a media giant. I'm sure it would work out great.

7 will put you on to Yahoo7 who will tell you they're streaming it themselves.  Yahoo7 will then geo-restrict it and the feed will fall over at some point anyway for the rest of us, who will either watch it on 7 or in person.

If it's so hard, how do I watch every Formula One race on JTV?  You really think networks permit anyone ever to re-stream their broadcasts?  Not on this planet.  

 

But yeah, you know best.

BG pegging WT then!  Big drop down from that to Rags though, I would've it to be smaller.

they are definitely putting a price on WTs reliabilty

 

in the event that she has no issues thats the best price there,

I think BG is the right money  

 

Rags appears good money but you'd need both favourites to cock-up, the odds of that are effectively halved

I've learned that you can never write off Syd, his S2H record is pretty sound

I still think waiting for the weather forecast (Accurate One) is better if you are going to bet on say Beau Geste or even Loyal. Can't see WT winning no matter the weather. She is facing a possible 5th over the line imo.

In IRC racing I would have been putting my money on Celestial until a short while ago but I reckon the new Patrice is looking very threatening! Looking forward to following that tussle.

For the Hobart a lot comes down to the crew, navigator and the conditions, I'm not familiar with some of the crew on various boats. Being able to keep the boat sailing at target speeds or above for long periods and at night when the crews start to tire is crucial and then where to place the boat on the course etc. The newer boats that also have good crews have to start favourites. We have a few new boats so it will be interesting.

LDH, What has Celestial done in recent ocean races or Hobarts to make them your favourite? Patrice is a new Ker 46, but have there been any other Ker 46 versions been racing with ocean racing success? There are other boats from outside the CYCA which have great potential for winning this race!

 

Terrafirma, Agree with your statement on the crew, navigator and conditions. As some of us know, the race may not be all about down wind and reaching conditions! If you don't find that current down the coast you will find yourself 20nm behind after the first night!

 

It must be due for one of the hard on the nose gale force races like experienced in 1999 and 2000, these conditions will favour some of the older or all-round type upwind boats with many of the lighter down wind flyers struggling to sail to their handicap.

 

As Terrafirms stated, you may have a great helmsperson and trimmer on one watch, but what happens when they go down below to rest and the B watch are up one deck with less skills to keep the boat going?

Celestial gave everyone a lesson in the Kepple race this year, I think they had a pretty solid Southport too. Macca and his boys are always solid in the ocean.

Re Celestial, I think they came 2nd in the last blue water pointscore race, and some good racing to Keppel scored a win as said above. Dont think they were too hot to southport overall but 2nd in div which was the same div result as the year prior. I think its a well sailed boat and reckon Macca draws good odds.

 

Re Patrice, very good results for all of the (4?) times it has raced so far. Would have expected it to take longer to get it all ticking over so well.

 

If its on the nose and heavy I'd throw money on Hicko 

 

First to admit I havent followed much racing outside Sydney, Southport and Hammo this year. Am sure there are lots of boats from all over the place with good odds on.

 

Re your last sentence, I'd like to think boats that wins IRC dont have a B watch.

Pretty big stretch using the Keppel race as an indication of good form in a Hobart, it was the usual sail-park-sail-park. I guess it could show Celestial has a good line to the weather gods if they managed to avoid most of the holes in the breeze

That sounds pretty cool, but what in fuck is a hungee?

from the mundlefly

 

Bob Oatley’s all-conquering supermaxi, Wild Oats XI, will go one step closer to resuming preparations for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race tomorrow when the yacht’s new mast, which almost broke during preliminary trials two weeks ago, is re-stepped following major repairs.

It was only a quick reaction by the crew that prevented the 45-metre high carbon fibre mast from breaking in two and crashing over the side after it suffered what the yacht’s skipper, Mark Richards, described as a “catastrophic failure”.

“It’s a miracle the mast didn’t break,” Richards said. “One minute we were sailing along perfectly normally then there was an almighty bang as the section fractured.”

After more than 10 days of intense repair work, a large crane will lift the mast back into place aboard the yacht at Woolwich Dock, in Sydney, at 9.30am tomorrow.

The 30-metre long supermaxi – the most successful yacht to contest the Sydney Hobart race in its 69 year history – was being put through her paces 20 nautical miles off Sydney when the incident occurred. The mast section compressed and fractured at the point where the boom attaches to the mast.

Fortunately, representatives from the New Zealand-based mast manufacturer were aboard Wild Oats XI at the time, so plans for a repair were initiated immediately. A replacement section was made at the company’s facility then flown to Sydney. Technicians also flew to Sydney to coordinate the repair.

“Everyone is confident the repaired section is stronger and more than capable of accommodating the compression loads the boom exerts on the mast,” Mark Richards said. “Our big challenge now is to make up for the training time we have lost in preparation for the Rolex Sydney Hobart race.”

The rigging will be tensioned and the mast tuned at the dock tomorrow before sailing training resumes on Friday. The yacht will go into full race mode this weekend so the required 24-hour qualifying run for the Hobart race can be completed.

As race record holder, Wild Oats XI is seen as the boat to beat in the hunt for line honours in this year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart race. She will have the first showdown with her strongest challenger, Anthony Bell’s similar-sized, Perpetual Loyal, on Sydney Harbour next Tuesday. Both yachts are part of the impressive fleet entered for the Solas Big Boat Challenge – a curtain raiser for the 628 nautical mile Hobart classic, which starts on Boxing Day.

Would have been an awkward motor home to the marina that day for the Southern Spars boys who were onboard.

 

I bet Southern haven't made much money out of this mast.

Have to agree. I'd guess 60% of viewers stop caring once the race to the turning mark is over and another 30% are interested until the sport report on the 6pm news. So that's two more races.

i think as this is a worldwide system with tens of thousand of targets the accuracy of fine data might be kinda general ? & updates differential on various targets not aligning?

 

ie southern excellence is  ahead of WOxi ?

 

(eg click on vessel - WOxi last update 56 mins ago, So' Excell is 12 mins ago, explains why)
