    Just listening to Darebin (Preston) playing English Heritage (variations on 'Blackadder' arr. George Lloyd).
    Great attempt with nice solos but ensemble let them down a bit.

    Well done 'BrassBanned' :tup

    I like this link, you can even add comments in real time (good banter going on) AND there's a twitter feed down the side of the page

    Let's have more contests doing this.

    I caught the last couple of performances yesterday and about 4 this morning. Couple of interruptions in the feed but that's probably down to my set-up as much as anything else.

    They could do with increasing the volume when the announcements are being made - very hard to hear anything - and captions as to who is playing (and what!) would be helpful.

    Definitely a good effort, though.

    This has been excellent and we should consider using it at all of our major contests.

    Hey guys...
    Thanks to all that watched the stream. I should come clean and 'fess up that it was actually me doing the live broadcast. Sorry for the little bit of self-advertising... I hope the forum admins don't mind.

    Just to let you know I will hopefully be Live Streaming the QLD state championships in June (Brisbane Excelsior will be competing for the first time since the won the A-grade of the 2010 Nationals), and will definitely be live streaming the New Zealand Nationals in July.

    Also, I'm moving across to the UK in June 2012 and would love to continue and expand what I do with the live broadcasts. Any suggestions of key people to contact would be much appreciated.

    Cheers again,
