My livestream test run today, which was really an actual private happy hour showcase for a bunch of nice folks in and around our nation's capitol, went very very well.
Google Hangs was the app used. The sound (laptop mic) was apparently good on the other end. The picture on my end lagged a bit, probably a function of my WiFi setup here, but no picture complaints from the audience. There will be more, and they'll be public.
Everything is super effing weird for everyone right now, but for a little while, things were a little less weird for me. It was very emotional for me afterwards.
The two-way sound/picture enabled audience feedback, and boy howdy, do I miss the heck out of THAT give and take.
Today was a reminder to me: That relationship is one of the most important things in the world to me. Without an audience, we performers don't got nuthin'.
These screen grabs were sent by the host, and they know who they are. MWAH XO
