    Gwinnett Woodworkers here in Georgia has done a video presentation with Steve Good, a well known scrollsawer. Everything worked quite well as the club records thier presentations regularly and has a Youtube channel and all the hardware was in place already. They will probably be very enthusiastic about the registry.

    Alan we are using the Logitech webcams and vmix with a overhead projector at the school we use and the whole deal has come together very well. i do not think the feed at the school is good enough to do online demo at this time. I may need some advise on testing that connection tho in case.

    I had a similar feeling when our club had a video presentation with Lyle Jamieson last month. The video quality was poor and the frame rate was really low ... maybe 2 or 3 FPS and sometimes less. The audio was OK most of the time, but occasionally was in the mud ... sort of like cell phone quality in a weak signal area. A lot of club members bailed out early. I had to leave before it was over because of back pain. (I had back surgery the previous month.)

    A growing number of facilities have been migrating phone systems onto the internet,
    this has been slowing the virtual video conferencing sessions where I work. At times
    the virtual video sessions will work and other times it buffers, gets choppy and is
    very difficult to follow the audio and video portions together.
