[edit] The Schedule

[edit] The Streams

There are 3 streams available, 1 for each talk room and a replay stream playing a playlist of past talks that serves as a fallback if the live streams should happen to go down. It can also be accessed for it's own sake. Prior to the conference the playlist consists of talks from DC7. Once the conference gets going we will update it regularly with the new talks from DC8.

These are the direct links to the specific streams

[edit] IRC Channels

IRC channels are available for people watching the streams. These channels are:

  • #debconf-salon_del_mar
  • #debconf-microcine

[edit] Current Status

The streams should currently be viewable but will only show a test stream, or possibly a camera of an empty room. replay-ext.ogv is working

[edit] Known Issues

  • mplayer (at least in the etch and lenny/sid versions) fails to display video from the streams at all, it does seem to play the audio.
  • vlc crashed accessing one of the streams (but not the other), with the following error message: "*** glibc detected *** corrupted double-linked list: 0x0000000000a40220 ***". Totem played the same stream fine. This was on Debian Etch for AMD64.
  • There is an almost universal lack of implementation of ogg chaining for theora+vorbis streams in viewing clients. Ogg chaining is used by icecast to provide the fallback functionality. This means that your client will most likely choke on the fallback to the playlist stream and also on returning to the live stream when it comes back up. We hope to have the live streams running continuously, so possibly most people will not experience this problem. However, we would like to get support for ogg chaining implemented in as many viewers as possible, so please, if you care about this contact the maintainers or developers of your favorite media player to file a wishlist request. Many of them already support this for vorbis only streams, so it may just be an oversight or something that just hasn't been used very often so far and therefore not noticed much. In any case, please don't tell the debconf-video team about it as we already know. ;)
