YouTube's new Video Cards work in Live Streams

Seems to me that Cards will be combined with Showcase at some point.

The Showcase app, like the Q&A app, is clunky because it pops the video out into a separate window and not all viewers understand how to get to that.

I just did my third HOA yesterday for my GEG Northern VA group and it's gotten better. : )  The second HOA was bad because I lost the wifi connection halfway through, so outside viewing wasn't possible and the recording was terrible in YouTube. This last time I was hard-wired and what a difference. The only "issue" I had was one of my participants couldn't get his camera to work, so instead, while he talked, I shared my screen with his presentation....so I thought. I forgot to click the "Share With Everyone" option after choosing "Share Desktop", so for a portion of the HOA, people were just listening and couldn't see my screen. 

So, as a mental note, it was a nice work around, but remember to press all the necessary buttons! :  ) 

Ah well, live n' learn!

How we RSVP to Events has an impact on the notifications and alerts we see. Learn about the details at the HOA event noted below.
 
Google+ Event Notifications & Alerts - How we RSVP matters
When you choose to respond (or not) to a Hangout in Air (HOA) Event, it will make an impact on the types of notifications you get.

Even when you choose to not respond, you'll still get some notifications if you were invited (from what we've seen). The type of RSVP you select - Yes, Maybe, No or No response - does make a difference.

Learn about what happens in our upcoming HOA Event on the topic. Here's the link to the event: http://goo.gl/BTHnM8 - come join us and understand more about the Event notifications you get. It will be live on Thursday Feb. 5th, 2015 if you'd like to join us live or available as a recording afterwards.

So I'm thinking of broadcasting my next workshop in two months as a "hangout on air" event. Any advice for a newbie to this?

If you are thinking of broadcasting pre-recorded videos I'd think again as Google doesn't condone such activiity- be very, Very, VERY sure there are no copyright issues involved that could endanger your account.

Hi.  I'm wondering if anyone has any experience incorporating their Hangouts on air into their WordPress site?  Right now what I do is after scheduling a hangout,I take the YouTube url and put it into a dedicated page on my site.  I've looked at a couple of plugins but haven't been impressed.  Ideally I'd love to be able to schedule, start and stop hangouts from my site.

Hi!
We just have our first hangout, can anyone tell me how to increase the attendance for future reference?
We sent an e-mail blast to our customers 1 week and a half in advance. And we followed up with them after. The attendance wasn't too good. Any ideas?

Suggestions for a zoomable USB webcam for a Mac?
I'm helping a friend get set up to do a live video stream of an event from her Mac out to an HOA.  She's traveling to the event and doesn't have much room to bring extra gear, so we'd love to just use a USB webcam.  Ideally, though, we'd like to have her be able to zoom in on the speaker rather than just have a fixed wide view. (We also want the wide view.)

In looking around, I see that the newer Logitech C930e says it will zoom in, but using additional Logitech software :

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CRJWW2G/

Has anyone ever tried using this camera with a HOA and zooming in?

Does anyone have other suggestions for a camera that can zoom in and be connected as a USB webcam?   I'd love if there were a USB webcam where the zoom could be manually controlled like a regular video camera.  (or a regular video camera that could be connected to a Mac that would appear as a USB webcam without another box in the middle)

+Dan York I was wrong about needing to crop.  I tested Wirecast and found the easiest way to follow the action was to use a single webcam shot.  Start with editing the shot by double clicking it.  You can keep the shot editor open the entire time I think.  I enlarged the image with mouse scrolling so that it is zoomed in.  Now when you need to follow the action move the image with the mouse to the new position then click on the shot or use the arrow to make the shot live and it will move to the new position.  Use a Smooth transition.  That way only one shot is needed for all the zooming positions and you just edit the shot to reposition it to follow the action.
Or you can make a few shots if the person doesn't want to keep editing the shot.

Showing video in an HOA

Just an idea/suggestion (it's probably been mentioned before)...

I completely understand why we can't show video clips in public HOAs as opposed to private hangouts.

I've lived with it for all this time (I've been running a weekly travel & tourism HOA for over 2 years) and I'm used to it.

BUT quite often my guests (tour operators, tourism organisations, travel bloggers, etc) have their own content (photos, video, etc) which they want to show.

Photos we can screenshare, but...

Wouldn't it be GREAT if I could get a particular Youtube video pre-screened (for copyright) in advance and attached to the HOA event, so that we can show it in the HOA?

Yeah. I guess that's the manual solution, but far from ideal.
