Thanks for the Live Streams from YAPC::NA

I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the live streams broadcasting these days!
With the time shift to my place it allows me to drop into yapc::na after my workday and enjoy some talks.
This is definitely a very cool feature of the Perl community.

(I also would like to encourage everybody who watches and appreciates the live streams to drop a little thank-you note here.)

I wish I could leave a thank you note, but "Install Microsoft Silverlight" excludes those of us who aren't members of the club. By all accounts the rest of the YAPC::NA organisation appears to have been excellent, but this particular decision has left me hugely disappointed. I can only hope that archives of the videos in free/open formats will be made available afterwards.

@Mark - you can view the streams without silverlight. Here's a Perl script courtesy of the #yapc IRC channel: https://gist.github.com/2926769

The script is not working for me, but at least copy-pasting the UUID's is easy enough: http://blogs.perl.org/users/jt_smith/2012/06/streaming-via-vlc.html

Anyway, thanks for all the streams. A couple of comments: 1) sound is good (they just need to remind speakers to repeat attendees' questions so stream listeners can hear the questions; but 2) the lighting in some room is not good enough? But nevertheless, thanks a lot!

Here's the javascript snippet to add a link to the video stream: https://gist.github.com/2936793

Useful if you have dotJs or Greasemonkey.

You're quite welcome!
