View Full Version : The Beat Goes On 'Spoiler Free' Keynote Stream

Apple is holding a media event on September 5th to announce new products. News sites across the web will cover every announcement in detail, while Apple's site will be updated with any new products announced.

The event takes places on September 5th, 2007 at 10AM Pacific time and we will provide links to live coverage.

Some readers prefer watching the keynote themselves without knowing the outcome. Unfortunately, there is no live video feed for the keynote. Instead, Apple will likely post a recorded Quicktime stream (usually) a few hours after the event completes.

For those individuals, we've posted this news story which will be updated with the link to the event once it becomes available from Apple. No other news stories or announcements will be displayed alongside this story.

Thanks for providing the SMS and spoiler free coverage. I'll be at school then cross country so hopefully they'll have the video up by around 5:00 EST. Then I can watch it, call the Apple Store to see if they have the new stuff in stock, then I can go buy it!

Considering the SMS messages, not sure if can wait to get home. About how many messages will be sent?

The page arn linked to earlier said 5-10 (and since they use Twitter, each message should be less than 140 characters).

All in good jest.

I might do the whole spoiler free thing this time, the iPod I might be in the market for. I already have all flavours but. I don't know. If they released a 120gb 'touch' iPod then I'll be a a good ~200 down!

I have always wondered why Apple will not post the recorded
keynote in iTunes so that you watch it on your iPod?

I'll admit I'm a bit of a gizmodo fanboy, but if you hate refreshing engadget, check out gizmodo 'cause their page auto refreshes (ajax or some other fancy web application).

That said, in general engadgets photos are better.

the spoiler free is perfect for me! im 16 hours ahead (australian time) so ill just wake up on the 6th and check it out. i guess a drawback of this is it feels like the keynote is a day later for me than you americans :(

Noooooo! I wanted to see the spoiler free video. I went to apple.com just to see if anything new on the top bar. I wanted to go back to the spoiler free page from my bookmarks and I saw the front page for a second when the bookmarks page went down, noooo!

the keynote should be have been done a few hours ago, right?

The event began a little less than 3 hours ago. It'll probably be up in a few more hours, sorry.

LOL, I did the same thing yesterday... came home, logged into the internet, and went directly to the Spoiler-Free site... then it hit me, I was too early!

I am bored here, so I was checking my other RSS feeds, and saw a headline from FOX News... *sigh* hopefully there will be OTHER surprises!

Oh, and thanks for keeping this thread spoiler free!

I know they need to check it over and edit it before it goes public, but c'moooon! What was all that stuff last time about iMovie 08 being made because one of his colleagues wanted to be able to edit movies faster :p

Hmm this feels like sinking to a new low of geekiness/fandom... waiting for the video and trying to avoid spoilers, sheesh you'd think it was the final Harry Potter book or something... but here I am waiting with the geekiest of them :o

takes one to know one, but I do hope it goes live within 30 minutes, because otherwise it will be new iPods with my breakfeast.

P.S. this is not a spoiler, just the most likely thing to come out, I have no idea what it is in reality.

Well, I just looked at some old posts, and Apple usually releases the videos about 6-6.5 hours after the keynote starts... that means we still have three hours to go guys! I think I am going to go take a nap...

to the keynote webcast? What is your guess?

Macnoviz
Sep 5, 2007, 03:41 PM
to the keynote webcast? What is your guess?

the closest I get out of the top of my head would be to the quicktime page itself apple.com/quicktime, which doesn't have a lot of spoilers.

but the videos themselves are quite exotic, so don't count on trying random links.

the previous one was, I believe:

rtsp://a2047.v1412b.c1412.g.vq.akamaistream.net/5/2047/1412/1_h264_350/1a1a1ae555c531960166df4dbc3095c327960d7be756b71b49aa1576e344addb3ead1a497aaedf11/99427722_1_350.mov

yeah, that's right

katanna
Sep 5, 2007, 03:42 PM
well, I think I'm going to bed, then

I don't mean to send you to bed, I was just trying to post my research findings. In the WWDC spoiler free thread, there were like 5 pages of people going "OMFG, COME ON, I have to pee but I can't until the keynote stream is out." I just thought I would save some people the urinary strain.

Sorry if this has been said, but I resisted to read the comments to prevent any spoilers. The Quicktime link posted in the article points to the August keynote about the iMac, not today's iPod one!

WildCowboy
Sep 5, 2007, 05:12 PM
For those who haven't spotted the link here in this thread, our spoiler-free article has now been updated with the correct direct link to the Quicktime file, bypassing Apple's page that contains spoilers.

Apologies for the initial incorrect link (partial blame goes to Apple for posting the page about today's event and then linking to the wrong file) and the delay in getting the correct link posted.

I also was having a lot of problems watching the posted link, so I went to the Quicktime Events page (spoilerish) and used that link... MUCH better! Higher quality, and IT WORKED...

... and after finishing the speech, all I can say is... WOW! SO many bombshells he dropped... and then some chick sang at the end... but still, WOW!

Matthew

Macnoviz
Sep 6, 2007, 12:04 AM
well, I just got up, seeing that I left right before they posted...

just a question: is the quality of the spoilerish quicktime link really better?

Voidness
Sep 6, 2007, 12:35 AM
Well, the link I posted earlier is the same link you'll find in the spoiler page. I managed to get the link without spoiling anything by hiding the browser window and grabbed the stream link from the HTML source :)

Anyway, I still didn't see the keynote. The stream in incredibly choppy for me, and I hope someone could post a link for downloading the keynote directly. Typing apple.com in the address bar is becoming increasingly tempting :p

Macnoviz
Sep 6, 2007, 01:44 AM
did you try using the open URL in quicktime? it worked pretty good for me, and it was certainly worth waiting for...

Voidness
Sep 6, 2007, 02:12 AM
Yes, I tried opening it in Quicktime, it's very choppy and unwatchable. I know I have a bad internet connection to begin with, but I did manege to watch the WWDC 2007 keynote on an even slower connection. So I'm assuming the streaming server is still very busy.

Voidness
Sep 6, 2007, 12:56 PM
Is anyone still reading this thread? I'm trapped here! :p

I would greatly appreciate if someone could record the keynote stream and post it somewhere so I could download it. I can't take it anymore! :apple:

EDIT: WOHO! I found a download link. Apparently, there's a special version for playing the keynote video on the iPhone, and it's not streaming. Here's the link : http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/s83522y/iphone/63827621b_1_ip.mp4
