Obama Announcement: Stream vs. TV
Obama Announcement: Stream vs. TV - Originally uploaded on flickr by stevegarfield.
I tried to watch the Barack Obama presidential announcement today on their webstream from Barack Obama.com. It was a stuttering frustrating experience. After spending some time trying alternate streams and reloading the page I realized that the announcement was probably being covered on TV too. D'oh! So I turned on MSNBC and there is was. The sound actually was a little rough but the added benefit of watching on TV was hearing some instant analysis.
It's funny how you get so used to watching video on the web and can forget to turn on the TV when there's a live event happening.
