VIdeo of MacWorld KeyNote

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Besides the Streaming, how can one get a video of the keynote?

I am going, so can I just film it using my DV camera, or will somebody be capturing it over the satalite and be selling the tape over the internet?

    Apple will undoubtedly provide on demand streaming of the Keynote soon after the event is over. Then someone will post a link to download in this thread:

    Why not? I mean, Apple is killing the Quicktime Movie sacred cow, and is really hyping MP4.

    MP4 is a superior format. For the same size, you get higher res/quality. That has to be good for the keynote.

    Or Apple want the webcast to be as bad as possible to take away the focus from what is(n´t) introduced on stage.

    The only problem for MPEG4 would be that it would require a beta media player. I guess 98% of us here has it but most people actually wait until Apple release it officially.

    In other words: They would have to double their streams and have like six to eight different (speeds*codecs)

    Individual streams arn't that expensive. They'd just have to add another computer (or 2 or 3 or 4) to encode the MP4 stream.

    The big cost is bandwidth, which would remain the same.

    Yeah, if it turns out to be as crappy as it SOUNDS like then we'll be looking at it being broadcast as an animated GIF.

    It'll just be Steve Jobs floating across the stage and pointing at an iMac. Maybe they'll add a crowd clapping sound. Both will just be set to play over and over.

    Gee whiz, already I'm set for a lousy show. Well, at least I can't be disappointed now!!
