If You Don't Make Mistakes, You are not Trying Hard Enough

I had a big fail tonight (Wednesday) before this Thursday posting.  I fully intended a short write-up to guide you to my YouTube channel for how to edit a photo in Lightroom.  The video was a live session and it lasted for 25 minutes.

So what failed?  The screen share and comments failed me.   

I had great plans, but during the presentation, I had to make changes.  I had dual monitors set up so I could share one screen and manage the live feed on the other.  What I didn't plan on was the photo I was going to use for editing was on a drive that needed to be connected to my computer and I had to disconnect my second monitor to get that drive plugged in because I only had one port for that connector.  When I disconnected the monitor, the screen sharing stopped.

That should not have been a problem because the folks in chat would have told me.  Well, they tried and tried.  They really tried.  I did not learn that my screen share had stopped until the entire session was complete.  At one time I had changed what I was sharing and that fixed the screen share, but not until 18 minutes plus into the session.  

I searched support for Streamyard and found that is an issue with Facebook.  Streamyard tries to configure Facebook to allow public comments, but Facebook ignores that request from Sreamyard.  The fix is to manually configure that in my Facebook settings and that is now done.

I will try again next week and hope to do better.

In lieu of advertising my failed live video from tonight, I am going to advertise my scheduled Youtube video which is a review of my camera backpack and what I pack in it.  Both this blog post and that video will automatically post at 8:30 AM Thursday morning.
