    Greeting Eyes On Ears Friends and Family, First, thank you all for being such loyal followers of Eyes On Ears. This site is truly based on sharing that special magic that only Disney can offer and there is great appreciation for all who participate and/or just enjoy the adventures and experiences along the way. As you may know, Ustream will no longer be supporting the ad supported live streams that Eyes On Ears relied on. Eyes On Ears is now in the process of replacing Ustream with YouTube live. It’s been a little bumpy so again, we thank you for your patience and support as we work through this transition. What you may not know, is that the ads that Ustream would place on the streams did not provide any money to Eyes On Ears, nor does Eyes On Ears have any targeted ads from Google or any other ad service. Like public radio or TV, Eyes On Ears is entirely funded through the generosity of its fan base. Unfortunately, we find ourselves well below our contributions compared to last year. So with this post, I am asking you to consider sending a little magic back to Eyes On Ears in the form of a donation. The process is easy and quick and we do not collect your personal information to sell or spam you. Think of it, when was the last time you received spam from Eyes on Ears? The only emails you receive are notifications on items you may follow in the forums. All donations are greatly appreciated in helping Cameron and his friends to continue sharing that Disney magic with you.

    Okay, I was just wondering on the limits. I know I can upload videos that are 3 hours because that was the limit for the UStream videos that I uploaded from UStream. Just never tried loading anything any longer. Like you all have said before, most people are not going to sit and watch a video for more than 15 - 20 minutes max, except for a few. I myself do cast them onto a large screen tv at work when I am on the midnight shift and play the MK view videos I have done for hours on end when I am working alone. Its great hearing the boat whistles and train whistles and the sounds of Disney in the background. I play a lot of those 5-minute bench videos that people do and have linked a lot together to make it an entire shift worth. Make the time go by much faster.

    Coast to Coast 2018!

    Had this crazy idea to do a Disney Coast to Coast trip for the Christmas season this year. We were able book our Florida portion (Saratoga Springs) but had to waitlist for California (Grand Californian). We didn't have much hope to get the California portion but, we received some good news this weekend...we're going to California! By way of Florida! We get to go see the Christmas decor in each park! Dec 3-10, Saratoga Springs Dec 10-14, Grand Californian And now it's time to plan those plane tickets, ADRs and Fast passes! We'll be burning though those DVC points again!

    Fiz, I really like the idea you have for room views. Saving just the best and editing the footage to no more than three hours would be great! Same for event videos. I just hope that no one gets insulted if their video is replaced with one that is deemed "better." But, if there's a way for the person who did the stream to save their own videos to their YouTube account, that could be a solution.

    Yep, after you meet a certain channel/account threshold they increase the video length. When you first open an account videos can not be longer than 15 minutes. Its pretty easy to get over those first few hurdles and then they open it up to 12 hour length for saved videos. As Fix discovered as long as you have a connection you can stream live for much longer than that; it just will create issues saving and will add additional work/time to remove it afterwords. BrotherDaves latest video stopped at 27 hours long - it says it is processing it; I am guessing based on the 12 hour limit that that process will fail. The maximum file size you can upload is 128GB or 12 hours, whichever is less.

    Live Streaming with a Phone: tutorial

    MrHub, That video is a great tutorial on how to stream from start to finish if you were setting up your own channels and/or streaming from a studio application. In the case of EOE, Fiz and I have the channels settings already setup so users have no real need to change any settings and its actually something that would not be encouraged. The video below is as simple as 1-2-3 and for 99.9% of the users streaming to the EOE Youtube Channels this is all it takes. Before you click the camera icon to go live you will need to "Switch Accounts" and select the EOE Channel that you are invited you to join. This process would be the same if you were using a laptop or other device from a resort as well.

    dbeedle, that's a great wedding memory!! Albinotrout, that stinks! Three hours is a long delay...they should have reclining chairs for such occasions! Thanks so much for your streams this week, it was a great build up to our September trip. I hope you enjoy our streams as much as we did yours. Your family is delightful, and great to go along with the streaming. We'll see you in chat, until your next trip.....

    We've finally got our first Youtube resort stream - THANKS BrotherDave - great Wilderness Lodge view!!! Current feed is going strong 20 hours in I think; that's great for watching the live streams, but were thinking it likely wont make for the best saved video content. With that in mind we have few ideas to share with the community and would like to get your feedback and hear any objections prior to deploying our game plan; or at least give you a heads of of those plans. We're thinking that we may want to keep the best "resort" streams from a particular angle and time of day. So with BrotherDave's streams from this particular angle we would select the best day time stream and the best night time stream and remove the others which are very similar in nature. We might also edit the content down to a viewable time frame - doubt anyone will watch a non-live video for longer than 10-15 minutes. Ustream automatically deleted videos after a time frame, with Youtube we will need to do the management manually. What do you think?

    We are thinking of making this a seris of regular discussion on how to enhance EOE The move to YouTube from Ustream presents EOE with some exciting new options as well as new challenges. For this thread we would like your thoughts on the videos that are being saved to Youtube. We are all hear to share in the Disney Magic live while it happens, but what should we do with the live streams after they are saved? I think we can all agree that 500 versions of essentially the same room view or event will fill the channels with a lot of content that will make it difficult to find the good stuff. So here is what we are thinking. For Room views: These are great live! But how many of us are going to really sit and watch my " A day in the life of the canal as viewed from Old Key West" for 24hours straight? It is kind of fun to have but it really is a bit much. But if I edit that down to say the best 1,2,3 hours and save that? Then Tag it with the year and building or maybe year and room? Then people could use it to compare year over year. And maybe use it to get an idea of what room to ask for before booking. If we have multiple videos from the same room or building then we save the best one. For Events: How many recorded views of the entire parade do we need? Similar to the room view, we plan to keep the best one (based on location, quality etc) for the year or maybe the season. That way we can do the same thing and look back at what changed year over year. Thoughts? Ideas? Comments?

    Oh totally Noose, I understand. I do have my own channels and I just used that video to get the encoder setup and to get my cameras to just work. If I am streaming from the resort, would you rather me use one of your channels that are already set up? Can you embed one of my channels like you did with UStream ? What would be easier?

    Funny you should ask 1) yes, when logged into Youtube from a computer with a web cam, slect the go live and then on left side slect camera 2) We have 6 channels total, so each will need to be used for resort and mobile. Many are not Resort streaming 24/7 nymore so may not be issue 3) I have started talks on who wants to stream. Right now I have you and belle on EOE 3. Would you prefer a dif channel this time?
