    Your stream is not coming in having tech problems Nick???

    • Works great for me!

        Nick, could you or RF please walk up to one of the head NRA guys and tell him the live stream is one of the worst I’ve ever seen.

        I haven’t been able to keep it working for more then 5 minutes at ANY time because of buffer time-outs. The only one that worked was the nbcnews feed and that only covered the first day.

      IN IE9 I had to turn on compatibility view to get it to work. Weird.

    Same voice and delivery as GW Bush.

  3. avatarutdmatt says:

    I keep getting buffer hell :S

  4. avatarutdmatt says:

    Switch it to a different stream guys IMO. This one is running out of bandwidth.

  5. avatarJPD says:

    Listen to more politicians (gag)…..more meaningless blah blah.

    • avatarneiowa says:

      You obviously need to be more selective about WHO you listen to. Stop with Biden/Obuma/Gore/McCain

    Can’t find a decent stream anywhere.

    I would LOL if we find out anon was DDOSing the stream.

  8. avatarMindflayer says:

    There’s something about Larry Potterfield that always makes me smile.

  9. avatarJohn says:

    I tuned in in the middle of her talk and didn’t get her introduction so who was the woman speaker dressed in yellow. She seemed pretty effective.

  10. avatarAM says:

    Bobby Jindal’s voice surprised me, I hadn’t heard him speak.

  11. avatarcsmallo says:

    Autoplay is very annoying.

  12. avatarPantera Vazquez says:

    Gone again, here and at ammoland as well

  13. avatarutdmatt says:

    More buffer hell :S

  14. avatarMatt in SD says:

    This video stream (not just at TTAG, NRA website too) is maddening!

  15. avatarRambeast says:

    Is it just me or is the constant interruption by weak applause annoying as hell?

  16. avatarneiowa says:

    The Sat night rally going to be “streamed:?

  17. avatarStephen says:

    I got 50/50 FioS running it on non-HD and still getting buffing. I almost want to cry with the 10 seconds of live feed to the 1 min of buffing.

    The streaming servers would _normally_have been enough. I don’t know if the demand was just higher than cloudfront can serve, or if there is a ddns attach on the nra convention, but either way, just insufficiency or attack, the Saterday evening event is essentially unveiwable.

    The Sat morning event had the alternate stream mentioned above available through NBC, but NBC has not chosen to stream the evening event.

    I supposed I can watch the segments next week when things have calmed down a bit, or just download them slowly and watch when I want. Still, once again, we prove that the internet is -not- yet ready to be a real-time live-event source for a really _LOT_ of people.
