After I saw about 630 viewers on Leo Laporte’s U-Stream of his Tech Guy show it went down. I think the UStream server did pretty well. Apparently the local one will take 1000 concurrent viewers – so now now the ‘server is full’. I hear that there is a backup for this, using a dedicated CDN provider. If you didn’t realise it, much of Chris Pirillo’s U-Stream output from Podcast Hotel has been coming form the dedicated service.
Here’s how it went down.
(BTW: Someone asked Leo to put the keyboard on his head – so he did 😉 )
I’m sure that Brad from U-Stream has more to worry about at this time – I hear a baby is imminent! Good luck with EVERYTHING!!! 🙂
