Tips for HOAs  - 
 
Great tips to adopt and develop for yourself as a Filmstrip Guest inside a Hangout or Hangout on Air (HOA). These tips aren't so much tied to the technology, so they should useful for quite some time.
 
Evergreen Hangouts on Air Guest Tips... for HOA Panel Guests
In this context, HOA means Hangouts on Air. HOA are the live broadcast part of Google Hangouts. They automatically become YouTube videos when you are done and here is just such a video. Note: look for the clickable summary points below.

My Featured guest +Rebekah Radice takes us through some fantastic ideas and tips on how to be a Great HOA Guest if you are on the video panel aka 'filmstrip'.

The panel with +Debi Davis +Mike Allton +Jeff Sieh and myself bring in additional perspectives from time to time and the non-filmstrip guests also chime in with fantastic comments live on the screen. This all took place in a HOA Event http://goo.gl/j1KzEo where you can see the great interaction that goes on in a HOA Event like this.

The main points of the show are summarized here:
58:31 - Preparation
59:24 - Looking your best - Branding
1:00:37 - Presentation
1:01:33 - Turn off distractions

We hope you can find time to watch the entire show, maybe even add a comment or two here or in the event linked above, but the short 3 min. segment referenced with the clickable time codes above should help you understand some of the great ideas we covered in the show.

I run a Membership Group called Hangout Mastery, and in that area we cover the day to day tech behind hangouts and hangouts on air. If you know that hangouts are in your future (they should be) then please considering signing up for the group and getting the technology to disappear while meeting other HOA-ers and growing together.

Hey guys. I've been lurking in this community for a while and watching other people's hangouts.

There appears to be a lag between when people are notified that the broadcast is live, resulting in an awkward bit of space where people are just being filmed waiting (I'm sure others have noticed it too). 

 One tip that I would give is to start your hangouts with a graphic (either achieved by using the screen share app or a separate machine logged into the hangout that you can switch to). That way, you can start with it, wait for the "Live" notification and then switch to yourself ready to go!

ALSO, if you do happen to have this little bit of awkwardness during live, you can always remove it after your hangout is done by using the "Enhancements" tab from YouTube.

It's a really simple tip that will make your hangouts look more legit!

More and more people view their online activity on a mobile device so it is important to keep up with the subtle changes we see on the Google+ mobile app... in this instance, the interaction options have been reduced, but the viewing of the HOA video has improved, read the details below.
 
Google Plus Mobile App and HOA Events
In the past there were quite a few differences between the way the Google plus mobile app could interact with each different type of "HOA Event"... Now there are more similarities.

This graphic below shows the Mobile App view of the 2 main types of Google+ Events you might use if you are a creator of Hangouts on Air (HOA) and package them inside Google plus Events.

The one on the left is the Traditional Event which is built via the Events menu, and allows you to manually insert a HOA YouTube View link. The one on the right is the newer format of a HOA Event which starts via the Hangouts menu and in essence still creates an Event.

Not too long ago the Traditional Event (left side) allowed for more interaction on mobile via the comments, but lacked the ability to view the embedded video (HOA or trailer) as part of the Event.

Now it seems that both formats allow the viewing of the video thumbnail image as part of the Event's display, but both of them jump you to YouTube when you press the play arrow. So we no longer need to add a link for mobile viewers when creating our HOA Events no matter which kind you make... That's Nice!

The visuals shown here may change, but the newer type of event (right side) known as a SHOAE (Scheduled HOA Event) has the added benefit of showing a count-down timer to the scheduled start time of the event when initially viewed on mobile.

Both types seem to show the Event Theme (banner graphic) at the very top if it has one added. Showing the graphic theme right next to the video player is a presentation that I've seen come and go recently, so don't be surprised if you don't see that layout as shown on the right side here.

The research and testing I did to come up with this info was done via the Android Google+ mobile app ver. 4.3.0.62241793 and I'm not positive what iOS mobile app users are seeing re. Events. I was able to do this comparison because I have 2 HOA events back to back, that use very similar graphics/trailers. If you'd like to compare them yourself, here are links to each http://goo.gl/AUeUX1http://goo.gl/VIhzr3

If you ever create Hangouts on Air From a Brand PAGE... these tips for getting the Filmstrip Guests into your HOA are priceless.
 
Page Hosted HOA and Filmstrip Invites... constant struggle it seems
But here is one more way for those the Page invites to get into the HOA filmstrip (or get in yourself if you've been invited by a Page run Hangout on Air - HOA).

In general it is best to have the Page circle the filmstrip guests AND the filmstrip guests circle the Page Long Before the HOA gets started up.

Also, the guests should be sure the circle that they add the Page into is NOT the "Following" circle.

If the above is done, then the HOA Filmstrip Invites are supposed to come normally. However they frequently seem to not happen normally. So I also suggest that the invited filmstrip guest navigate to the Page's Profile page and look for the Join Hangout button. But if that also fails, try the options shown below.

Tips like these are constantly shared in our private membership group called Hangout Mastery... Signup to Keep up bit.ly/HangoutMastery

Check your video preview before you go live...
Special option for the Host of a Scheduled HOA Event.
 
Hangouts on Air Video Preview before you "Start Broadcasting"...
HOA Tips & Events Tips
So you have started up your Hangout on Air (HOA) and are inside the interface (aka green room) before the live show starts. Did you know you could check to see what the video will look like before you start the broadcast?

There are certain things that only the Host of an HOA Event can see, like the "Start" button, the Q&A button to turn on/off that app from the outside (http://goo.gl/o2Sb9O), the Trailer button, and the Preview button. The Preview button (2) is not visible to the Host until the HOA interface window is active which happens after the Host presses the "Start" button shown below (1).

Check the Preview while in the green room before you invite in the guests into the filmstrip. This would be part of the green room time I spend alone setting things up. Once all the setup looks good, I then invite the filmstrip guests in so I can give them my full attention.

Tip: After checking out the preview of the video feed, it is a good idea to refresh the event page so that the preview turns itself off and no longer distracts you since it is a few seconds behind 'real time' and can get a bit in the way of your future tasks of running a good show.

Finding the YouTube Link for a Scheduled HOA event just got easier for host and viewer.
 
YouTube Link easy to find now for Scheduled Hangouts on Air (HOA)
HOA tips & Events Tips
When you create a HOA via the Google+ Hangouts menu on the left you are really creating a HOA Event. Sometimes we call this event a "Scheduled HOA Event".

In the past, finding the YouTube View link for that HOA Broadcast had been difficult to do but recently that has changed. +Krishna De, a member of our fantastic Hangout Mastery membership community, pointed out a new discovery which I have documented for you in the screen shot below.

Thank you Google for listening to our request! Now grabbing that important YouTube URL for the HOA is much easier to do by clicking the "Links" area just above the Details text on the HOA Event page.

Now you can grab the HOA's YouTube View link and easily share it with others before, during or after the event. This works for you if you are the host of the event or a viewer. Great Update!

Note: If you are the HOA Host that YouTube view link is still not visible inside the HOA interface so you'll need to grab it from the outside or use other techniques.

Tips for HOAs  - 
 
An important development for non-Public Hangouts on Air. Unlisted HOAs are now possible via the Google Plus side of things... before this change we needed to start them via YouTube.
 
Unlisted HOAs via Google Plus - YouTube Becomes your video recorder
Hangouts on Air (HOA) can act as your personal video recorder, or limited viewership broadcast machine.
There are times when you want to have a hangout session and record it, but don't want it "broadcast" to the world (right away, or ever)… Enter Unlisted HOA or Private HOA.

You could always use 3rd party software to record your screen while in a Hangout Video Call, but then you have large files that need to be rendered and uploaded for others to view, and that takes loads of time. When YouTube does the recording (via HOA), it is done quickly and ready to go right after the HOA ends.

Now Google Plus can start Unlisted HOAs
We've been able to start Unlisted or Private HOAs via the YouTube Live Event interface, but now we are able to start Public HOA & Unlisted HOA on Google Plus as well via the SHOAE tool (Scheduled HOA Events).

Until now, if you used Google Plus to start your HOAs you could only do Public HOAs. Now we can also do Unlisted HOAs starting with the Google Plus Hangouts menu.

3 important uses:
✓ HOA Trailer Recordings - Record now, add as a trailer later.
You can do these alone or invite your featured guest(s) to be part of the trailer days or weeks ahead of time.
✓ HOA Broadcasts to limited groups - semi private screening rooms
✓ Vlogging - a simple way to create video content which can be "published" later at a time of your choosing.

From what I've observed:
► The Unlisted HOA is not posted publicly on your G+ Stream
► The Unlisted HOA is not easily visible to others on your YT Channel
► You can easily change the Recorded Unlisted Video to be 'Public' or 'Private' to suite your particular needs

How to Start an Unlisted HOA from Google Plus
► Start your HOA process via the (1) Hangouts Menu ( http://goo.gl/xKxFQq)
► Next press the (2) Start a Hangout on Air Blue Button.
► Give the HOA a Title (3)
► Here's the Trick... Do Not Invite the Public Circle (4) to be in the Audience. Suggestion: just invite yourself to the Audience (optional: invite the group you want to see the unlisted broadcast) this is the HOA Event's invitation/guest list (aka Audience).
► After you Share the post (5), you'll be on the Private Event page & you start up the HOA Green Room via the "start" button when you are ready to go.

There are many other great uses of this new tool and a few "gotcha's" that will be discussed in the membership group for Hangouts called Hangout Mastery.

In my first test attempt at doing a Hangout on Air, I kept getting a message saying my YouTube wasn't connected. But it was!!! It took me a couple of hours of poking around and looking at Google help pages, to find out my YouTube account had not been verified. Doh! 

So newbies, make sure your accounts are verified and connected!

Are You Considering Mobile Broadcasting via HOA and your mobile phone?
Here is a shopping list with links for some of the equipment you may want... come to the HOA Wrap-up to learn how we used all this equipment at SXSW2014 - here's the HOA link http://goo.gl/VIhzr3
 
Mobile HOA equipment list March 2014
This year we got a bit more interactive with our Mobile Hangouts on Air (HOA) activity at SXSW. Last year the equipment list had a little less in the way of Audio and Audio Boosting, but we needed to hear the people in the filmstrip of the HOAs this time around.

Special thanks to +Jeff Sieh for his companionship and the great job he did as the 'cameraman' for the various broadcasts and interviews we did. This was certainly a Team Effort, so Big Kudos go out to the team of HOA hosts that were on standby - all Hangout Mastery members - to start up the HOA, as we still are not allowed to initiate HOA broadcasts from a mobile device. Maybe someday that will change, but I'm not holding my breath.

If you have not seen the videos we made, check out this video playlist http://goo.gl/wJLhTZ which includes 32 videos plus an awesome trailer video by the talented cameraman Jeff Sieh.

We will have a Public HOA discussing how this equipment was used and the processes established to make it such a dynamic success. Here is the link to the Public Wrap-Up HOA Event http://goo.gl/VIhzr3 .

There will be a Private HOA for Hangout Mastery members only one day after the Public HOA which will go much further into the nitty gritty details… you can become a member & watch that HOA live or recorded via www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

Equipment used:
1. Splitter: XLR Jack to Mobile Phone http://goo.gl/wBQPv
2. USB/XLR Microphone: Audio-Technica ATR2100 http://goo.gl/C89nk
3. Boostaroo 3 stereo jacks Audio Booster http://goo.gl/cV1a15

This Handy Hangouts update alerts you when you are inside a Hangout if someone has added a note in the Group Chat... only those inside the Hangout 'room' can see or use the group chat, FYI. Plus it seems to work quite well with the Private messaging options of group chat... learn more about that tidbit when in the group chat area and you type /? 
 
New Chat Alert for inside Hangouts... Group Chat Alert
The Hangout or Hangout on Air (HOA) interface hides all the tools when you don't have your mouse moving around... That has been a problem in that we can't see when someone has left us a Group Chat message.

Now it is fixed in that we get an alert telling us that there is a new message waiting to be read in the Internal Chat Box.

This is a group chat area for filmstrip members only, not for chatting with people on the 'outside' viewing a HOA for example. It is a great place to have 'behind the scenes' conversations while a HOA show is going on, or to just have 'side' conversations while others are talking.

The images below show the alert. You can click on the alert to automagically open up the Group Chat window to see the message. Thanks for letting me know you saw this +Michael Daniels

Our nonprofit is used to using BlogTalkRadio to air our shows live... I stress the word, "radio" because we are not used to being on camera. We feel it is important for our listeners to now be able to see us, as we want to keep up with technology.  

We would love to hear as many hints and tricks as possible to make our first show a success.  Myself (President) and our Vice President are caregivers to wounded warriors.  Our shows will be how to deal with life after combat.  

We don't need to have a "fancy" show at first, but we do want it to run smoothly.  I'd love to hear from you all.  I've already watched several of your videos, they are terrific!

How to Be the Best Hangout or Hangout on Air Guest
HOA tips & Hangouts Tips
If you have ever wanted to know what is involved with being a guest inside a Hangout or Hangout on Air (HOA) - this article is for you.

This is an in-depth article about a Google Hangouts Tutorial video I made which has become quite popular. Many people share the video with new folks that will be joining into their HOAs... or to help them become more familiar with regular Hangouts.

The article includes many written tips and screen shots and links to the Hangout Tutorial Video as well. This one's a keeper if Hangouts or HOA are part of what you do. Share it with the new folks that need to know about the magical communication tool we call Hangouts!

Bring Twitter comments right into a Live HOA Broadcast...
 
10 Steps to Bring Twitter Comments into your HOA Broadcast
HOA Tips & Hashtag Tips
Hangouts on Air are a Magical Communications Tool... but not everyone can be In the Show, so we have found a way to make the HOA more interactive when live by bringing the viewer's comments onto the screen as part of the broadcast.

Grabbing the comments from all over the place can be a challenge... that is why we use the +Comment Tracker tool to help wrangle them into one place. They come in fairly easily from Google+ and YouTube, but take a bit more work to herd them into the broadcast from Twitter... but it is possible and this step-by-step set of graphics shows you how.

For those that don't like pictures as much:
Make a Twitter Widget using a unique hashtag for your HOA show, copy the URL of the Widget and paste it into the stand-alone Comment Tracker tool's "Sources" field... do the rest of the stuff you know/should know how to do ref: http://goo.gl/eNrw2S  - now you got 'em.

If using the HOA (Hangouts on Air) tool is part of what you do, or will be, you should check out our awesome membership community called Hangout Mastery here bit.ly/HangoutMastery

Scheduled Hangouts on Air make it super easy to turn on the Q&A app... but how do you turn it off if you change you mind? Here's the trick. (hint, you must do so before you start broadcasting)
 
Q&A App and the Scheduled HOA Event - turn it on/off via the Event
Many people don't mean to, but they turn on the Q&A app by accident.
If you want to use the Q&A app by all means do so, but some of us feel it makes an HOA Event less social.

I've noticed more and more people turning the Q&A App on, but not using it properly. Could be they wanted to turn it off but did not know how. Here's How to disable it if you did not want it on.

If you arrive at your Scheduled HOA event page and realize the Q&A is on but you want if off, just click the Q&A button that only the event host sees and it will toggle on/off. But what if you enter the HOA interface to start your show and then realize you don't want the Q&A app on?

While staying inside the HOA interface, go back to the Scheduled HOA Event page and click the Q&A app button again (pictured here) to disable the App.

At first I thought you could enable/disable the app from inside the HOA interface using the App menu on the left but no, it must be done back on the Scheduled HOA Event page.

Remember, you can only enable or disable the Q&A App Before you start the broadcast... that is done via the Event Page if you use the Scheduled HOA Event tool from the Hangouts Page.
