We kept it open so people could comment and ask questions during the interview and we would have a few ready when the Q&A started. Probably better to close it till time to take questions.
I'm looking into a way to have phone callers. We have cell phones here and no land line, so I'm looking for a internet type phone to use for callers. I don't want to give out my cell number. I think i found something that will work.
After the show I checked that battery. It was completely dead. Strange thing is it was almost new and only had been used on one test a few days ago when I opened it. At the start of the show, when LW had the video issue it was showing "good" on the mixer. Which is why i didn't suspect it when we went on the air.
When LW called we got his video feed but it was all black. There was video coming in but the screen was black. I've had callers who's video either clipped or looked pixalated or whatever, but never an all black screen. It was like the lights were off or there was something blocking the video. Usually Skype will simply not connect if there is an issue. That was weird.
Then the audio problem which turned out to be the battery. It was like something didn't want the show to go on. LOL
One viewer count at the start of the show had over 25 people watching. I think we lost most of them due to the delay. We got on 45 minutes later with about 14 viewers and and some in the chat room. At that point we were so busy we didn't do a head count so i don't know how many we had totally.
But after all that it went well.
