As part of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast‘s addition to the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK, we’ve decided to switch from an audio podcast to a live streaming video show that will be available as a video podcast as well. After launching the network and several shows (Pub Crawl, Getting REAL (Estate) in Vegas and Strip Search!), we’re about ready for our closeup.

Our first live show within the network will be this Sunday, at 10AM Pacific. You’ll be able to join us on the VEGAS VIDEO NETWORK “Live” page by going here: http://www.VegasVideoNetwork.com/LIVE

Hope to see you there! We’ve got a lot to catch up on!

Last Tuesday, I sent an email to all the subscribers of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast email list asking for a recommendation.

The reason?

The Living in Las Vegas Podcast Virtual Video Meetup beta test we ran last Friday was a success(!) and as a result, I wanted to get our list member’s suggestions regarding a good day/time combo for our upcoming series of LiLV Virtual Video Meetups.

About 10% of those who read the email responded and I wanted to both share the top day/time combos along with asking for your comments.  Because we see this as a great way to keep in touch with our listeners PLUS a groovy way to introduce our listeners to each other, please take a moment and give us your thoughts on the matter!  Thank you in advance!

In analyzing the responses (Excel to the rescue!), here’s the top 5 most popular day/time combos:

1. FRIDAY at 5PM Pacific, tied with #2

I may have influenced this as it was the example I gave in the email. 

2. MONDAY at 8PM Pacific

This had the same number of votes as Friday/5pm.  My concern here is for the EST folks.

 

3. SUNDAY-THURSDAY from BETWEEN 6 – 9PM Pacific

Several comments suggesting a mid-week break from the daily grind.

4. SATURDAY at 9AM Pacific

Starting off the weekend right!  Would also give our many European listeners a chance to play along.

5. FRIDAY at 8PM Pacific

Starting off the weekend early!

 

What do you think?  Please take a moment right now and add a comment to the website.

Thanks again!

PodWorxLiveStudioCam Isn’t kind of fun to take a peek behind the curtain and see how stuff works?  I think so as well!  To that end, we’ve added the PodWorx Live Studio Cam page to our website.

From time to time (like as I type this), we’ll fire up the live camera so you can get an over-the-shoulder look into what’s happening in the PodWorx studios here in Las Vegas.

You might see me conducting a pre-interview with a upcoming guest.  Or be able to watch a podcast being recorded live.  Or see some post-production work being performed.  Or prepping to release a new customer podcast episode.  Regardless, you’ll see a working studio in action!

Scott, are you planning a listener meetup any time soon?  We’re going to be in Las Vegas next week, and would love to meet other listeners to your show!”

From time to time, I get an email like the one above.  Melissa and I think it’s great that listeners to the show are interested in getting together, like we’ve done in previous meetups.  And while there’s nothing like seeing folks in person, there’s still many more people who’d like to attend but are unable to because their either busy, out of town, or not Las Vegas locals.

I’ve been trying to figure out a way to create a Virtual Video Meetup—where any of our listeners could join in for free, regardless of their location, and have some fun talking among each other.

After some preliminary testing, I think I’ve created such an environment on the Living in Las Vegas Podcast website!

Announcing the LiLV LIVE VIDEO CHAT ROOM

If you look on the Home Page of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast website, you’ll see a new graphic in the right-side column.  It takes you to our brand new LiLV LIVE VIDEO CHAT Room!  In it, we all can:

  1. Host an unlimited number of participants
  2. See and hear up to 12 Live Video Feeds from those participating in the meetup.
  3. Add content to the real-time textual chat window
  4. Engage in private text-chats with any participant

In our preliminary testing, we had five video feeds running at one time.  I’d like to push that a bit farther this evening, if you’re up for it!  So tonight I’m going to run a “beta” test of our new webpage: http://www.LivingInLV.com/VideoChat

Tonight at 5:30pm Pacific, you are invited to test out our new Live Video Chat Room.  I’ll be there with a lovely beverage hoping to talk with listeners from all over the place.  If you have a camera and microphone, come join the fun.  And even if you don’t, stop by anyways.  We had fun during our testing talking with people who just used the chat window provided for all participants.

Date: Today (11/13/09)
Time: 5:30pm Pacific
Where: http://www.LivingInLV.com/VideoChat
Why? Because I’m all about the Kumbaya, my friend!

Hope to see you tonight!

You know what I like about Sundays?  Professional football.  There’s nothing like sitting down to a great game between your two favorite teams.  The excitement, the energy, the compe. . . .huh?. . .no pro football this Sunday?

Are you kidding me? 

What kind of a country is this?!?!  What the hell are you suppose to do this Sunday?  How are you going to be entertained and educated on this day of rest.

Where’s your Sunday bail out package?

Relax.  Your friends Scott and Melissa would never let you suffer.  Here’s the relief from a Sunday of sadness guaranteed to bring a smile to your face:

Where: http://www.LivingInLV.com/LiveVideo

Put it on your calendar.  Bring your own booze (we might join you!).  Frolic about in the live chat.  And thumb your nose at the NFL!

You’ve got to love a woman who says to you, “You know what Scott, we should do another live show this Sunday.”

I do love her.  How could you not love a Naughty Jelly Sweet like Melissa.  It’s impossible!  And to visually demonstrate that love (easy. . .nothing provocative) and to share with y’all our latest Las Vegas adventure, our next LIVE Streaming Video Podcast is on the schedule.  Here’s the deal:

When: Sunday, March 22
Time: 10:00AM PDT / 1:00PM EDT
Where: http://www.LivingInLV.com/LiveVideo

Put it on your calendar.  We had a great time during the last show (over 140+ people showed up). 

We’ll see you on Sunday!

For those of you who’ve been asking where they could see the video of our recent Live Video Streaming episode (#65 Living the Loft Lifestyle in Las Vegas), I’ve just developed a brand-spanking new video player on our homepage which features about 13 minutes from our 1 hour 21 minute show.

HomePageVideoScreenshot

Stop on by and take a look!  It’s pretty cool.

During the process of creating this video clip, it became clear that trying to encode an 82 minute video into something downloadable was not going to happen.  The original file was 18GB.  The first-cut .mp4 was. . .get this. . .a hard drive-saving 900MB.  As a result, we have a new video offering up our sleeves that will be fun and a bit more size sensitive. More on that later.

Until than, enjoy the video!

(Oh, one more thing. . .I just received our first international confirmation for this Saturday’s LiLV Listener Meet Up at the Red Rock Casino!  Don’t leave JR (from Germany) wondering what’s what in Las Vegas!  Be sure to come out and join us!)
