Hopefully this thread falls to the nether reaches of the board for lack of need or use, but somehow I doubt it. But until then, thought a thread that us less than techie guys can check in on just to satisfy ourselves that it’s the feed and not us might be helpful.

So, I’m trying to sign on to Simon Fraser @ BGSU
-Had to go to BGSU to make the connection.
-Had a pretty clear feed as I checked out the early pre-game with empty stands and facility workers running around.
-But then I noticed twitter said the game had started and was in progress and I was still watching the early pre-game. Ooops.
-Refreshed and got a “will be available in 5 minutes” screen. Should have hit the “go live” button. After 5 min got a fairly poor quality feed, no sound, but I least I was watching the game.
-Right after Simon Fraser tied it up at 1-1 got the pixelated green screen of death.
-I closed out and signed back on, but each time I got a few seconds of the feed and then the pixelated green screen.
-So is anybody getting a decent feed and I need to work on my connection?, or is BGSU just embarrassed that Simon Frazier tied it up in the first and pulled the plug?
-Ok, it’s the start of the second period and I have video (fairly poor quality) but no sound.
-Is this everybody/anybody else’s experience? Simone Fraser tied it at 2-2 and I still have video, so there goes that theory.
-I hope it only takes a few games to get this straightened out.

Well so far the quality on the MTU@LSSU and Michigan@FSU have been good, except for the video occasionally going black for about 5 seconds. I don't know if that's my computer, or at their end.

That said, I really miss the picture-in-picture from last year. I used that all the time, and with this setup, it looks like I have to have full video running in multiple tabs if I want to watch more than one game. Which doesn't look like it's going to work, since even running just two games made the video really choppy until I closed one :(

Edit: Now the Ferris feed is stuttering so badly that it's pretty much unwatchable for stretches.

My experience also. LSSU feed OK. The FSU feed was OK but then started stuttering.

If/when they get this figured out, are they going to have achieved video?

(2 of 2) For all those effected, we will be in touch individually to make good on tonight's poor quality.

Just an okay experience here. I've been kicked out a few times and had to login back in. They responded quickly saying to clear cache/cookies but it didn't help.

Yeah they responded to this as well as I couldn't find it.

At the link below it's under the Archived tab on the right. No Bowling green archive yet, last year America One was pretty quick at posting video on demand.

I have been watching some of the Tech vs. LSSU game and also the Ferris game. I have had the same problem as others with the freezing of the stream every so often. It would usually work after restarting the video.

I gotta hope that this was first-weekend jitters. I'm not a huge AmericaONE fan, but it feels so far like we're taking a step back here.

So glad I didn't waste my money on this internet video garbage.

Agreed. Last year's was far superior. We kept getting kicked out of the MTU/LSSU game forcing us to log back in twice since it came back with an error message that we were already logged in. A complaint to the powers that be elicited a suggestion that we log into the Invideous site in one tab prior to opening the stream page. I can't tell you if it worked because by the time we tried it the game was over.

While it was working, the stream wasn't too bad, although it froze a couple of times (we pay for faster internet to avoid that) and the lighting was pretty poor.

I didn't have any problems with having to log in over and over, however about twice per period, my full screen view would be minimized, the video feed would go black, then a few seconds later the video would restart and I would have to maximize the view again. I was using Chrome so maybe the browser was using the saved password feature and logging me back in without me having to do it.

Overall I would give this service 4 out of 10. From the last minute nature of announcing what was being offered, to the foreign transaction fee, to the lack of any HD feeds (UAF, FSU, LSSU I've viewed to this point) it has been less than impressive.

I'm worried that this weekend will be another fail. My team (UAF) is playing in anchorage, and last week they never bothered to even try to stream the UAA game, so I think these hiccups may happen again. According to someone I spoke to last week, the issue with UAF's home stream was a lack of bandwidth at the venue. Hopefully they are upgrading and it won't be an issue next week when UAF and UAA are both in Fairbanks.

Is it better to go to nchc.com or go to say St Cloud site and go from there(or Colgate site ?)

That's disappointing, because the edict from the league for last season was that everyone be up to HD quality for the FoxSportsGo stuff that never came into reality.

FoxSports Go was (IMHO) neutered by the Cable Companies since you need to verify your TV provider to access it. And unless things changed; I, as a subscriber to Comcast, cannot watch FoxSports 2's feed because I do not get that channel (Comcast refuses to carry it).

Their grandiose plan to mimic WatchESPN / ESPN3 by providing content not available via their cable channels never materialized.


It would be fantastic if that could be revivied though.

Watching the UAF game in Anchorage. Although it looks like watching through a muddy window, at least I can watch the game. Not sure what the price increase is paying for as it certainly doesn't lol anywhere near hi-def.

For $12/game and $160/season there shouldn't be hiccups as bad as we've had so far.

I assume they got rid of picture in picture?

My picture quality was good but when play started it was choppy ? The St Cloud announcers were very biased, I usually see this from young kids announcing. All Husky penalties weren't really penalties but Colgates definitely were, bad call by ref etc. Not very professional.
