Oprah's Webcast

The other night Oprah had a webcast for her book of the month club. She was interviewing Eckhart Tolle for his new book called A New Earth. My wife had signed up for the webcast so I was helping her log on before the webcast started. My wife had tested her computer the day before from an e-mail that was sent to every registrant. There was a small download to install that would allow the webcast to run on your computer's browser.

She was logged in and ready to go at 7pm MST. At first everything went smoothly and then about 20 minutes into it, my wife came upstairs and said the video was stuttering. Being a former web conferencing support tech, I went downstairs and did some speed tests to Chicago. Every server I hit in America was registering great speed except to the server in Chicago from which I could not even connect too.

I had never been on the receiving end of a poor quality webcast and it was quite frustrating to my wife. It is too bad because Oprah had a great chance to show of this exciting technology and it fizzled.
