Default It Says :unable to download video

Hello, after recording a live broadcast and I go to "video on demand", in the storyboards it says that the video clip is currently being imported. It still has not imported and it has been about 7 hours later. Any suggestions of what has happened? It shows the video that was recorded was 44 minutes and gives the time, so it was recorded. TY

ltfchurch,

I reviewed your Studio and our servers, unfortunately your recording from earlier today failed to properly record and cannot be recovered. Moving forward we suggest streaming with Procaster which will allow you to save a local copy of your broadcast to serve as a backup.

Matt, thank you for the quick reply. Can you tell me if the procaster will give a better picture? I am using right now a video device called Diamond VD500; Would I get a better video if I bought a video camera that had a built in wirefire than having a video device?
Thanks for the help

ltfchurch,

Procaster will allow you to stream at a higher bit rate, which will give you better video quality. Free channels are limited to encodes no higher than 500kbps, however Procaster allows you to go over that limit.

I can't really say if the Firewire connection will give you better quality than your capture device, however please note that the VC500 is not a certified device, and may not be recognized or function properly with Procaster. Most DV cameras connected via firewire will be immediately recognized by Procaster.

fabianojacob,

Unfortunately, the clip in question has failed to record to our servers and cannot be recovered. I suggest broadcasting with Procaster (www.livestream.com/procaster), which will allow you to save a copy of your broadcast to your local machine that can be easily uploaded to your channel in the event of a recording failure.

Default It says unable to download video

Hi. Today i recorded a video using Procaster, and when i tried to watched it later on through the admin, i couldnīt. I saved the video under one name, and it appeared under another (the date and hour when it was recorded) and i couldnīt play it, it said Ļunable to download videoĻ

What couldīve happened? I think the streaming was fine, because i checked it while it was on and everything was fine.

Should i wait till tomorrow? Can you help me?

Thank you.

Thank you for contacting Livestream.

As you used Procaster, by default it saves a copy of your stream to your local disk, so you may have a saved copy on your computer. To further investigate your issue, please create a ticket by writing in to newsupport@livestream.com, and include your username, and full details about your workflow and where we can find the clip that shows the "unable to download" message.

Thank you for your patience.
