I am trying out a new video feed. The service I was using before and have been using for years just kept adding ads and then got to the point to where they’d put a commercial on the videos and the feed at start-up. Most of the commercials I didn’t like. I felt they were inappropriate. One car company ad kept using foul language, even though it was being bleeped It was still known what was there.

I even tried to trick the system into using more kid friendly ads by putting tags like “kids, children, religion” as key words. That didn’t change anything. I hope they don’t use some of those ads on sites with children as the keywords.

I am trying out other service and it seem to be easier to use. Not sure what bugs to work out if any. One thing I did notice is when I stop a recording it will temporarily stop the feed. I think I have that figured out to where I can stop it and start it back fast without much interruption.

Let me know if there are any problems with the feed.

I can see it fine. Are you getting it through some sort of feed reader or straight from the LJ site..

I received the same imbed code error as spunwood. Not sure if it matters, but I’m using Win XP Pro 32bit w/SP3 and IE8. I’ve attached a screenshot of the error for reference.

The link to your site below the video works fine.

Thanks for the info. I re-pasted the code. I may have tied to get the last link on a different line. That may have messed it up for some. Post if your still having problems.

Chris Davis Awesome idea… I can’t watch from work, but I’ll check it out my next night off.

A10GAC- I’m an IT… new to woodworking, and can’t provide too much advice/help with woodworking, but please do yourself a favor… don’t use Internet explorer… Download Firefox, or Chrome, or Opera… much much safer for you and your computer.
Get Firefox -here-

I have nothing against Microsoft, and keep IE around for those stubborn web pages that are written ONLY for IE… it’s just experience… virus-writers design viruses for IE more than any other browser… why? because the target group (generally the “I pay my bills, update my Facebook, and look up a few recipes” types) do not change from the default windows browser… so if 95% of your target group uses one type of browser… you’d want to target that…

Anyways, Chris, GREAT Idea… I always like to see business owners who aren’t afraid to show someone what goes on out in that shop behind closed doors (can you imagine what you could catch at some of the non-reputable car mechanic shops if they had this?”
