    see it here The unveiling of xServe.

    I'm not done watching it yet, but if you look at 51 minutes into it, Jobs almost trips coming off the stage:) It's kinda funny, but at least he didnt hurt himself...

    Awful!

    I understand having a shoddy stream during, say, MacWorld keynotes, but man I have NEVER seen a QuickTime stream THIS BAD. Pauses every few seconds, a frame of video every 30 seconds, and so forth. I managed to finally watch it for about 40 minutes, then BAM, awful again.

    Obviosuly it's not running off an Xserve. Haha.

    Watched the whole thing.. there was a couple minutes towards the halfway point where Phil started sounding like a Speak'n'Spell but a touch of the pause/play to rebuffer cleared him right up.

    It's fine on T1...:p

    Some interesting things were said and left unsaid during the Q&A section during the last 15 minutes or so.

    A definite charge for Jaguar - no free upgrade.
    No comments on Java Development, and other future hardware...

    Yeah, it was a nice recovery though! Not as dramatic as I had hoped... :D

    What Web Browser Are they Using

    When watching Phil show off the thing, I noticed he wasn't using IE. Does anyone know what he was using?

    WTF!

    I am ONLY get the audio from the stream... doesn't even attempt to load in image video into the player... QuickTime RULES, but for streaming so far it sucks. WMP streams so much better, although its quality sucks...

    i think someone @ Apple config'd this stream wrong or something...

    no more requested data

    In the QuickTime setup under the "Connection" tab, click the "Transport Setup" button, and click "Auto Configure"

    This worked for me. The stream looked fine, and sounded ok for me.

    The first two times I tried the link it didn't work very well either. The third time it seems to be going beautifully. I'm at a location on internet 2 so I don't think bandwidth is the problem. I just seems like it wants to hang at first.

    Re: WTF!

    Thats because you haven't changed your Quicktime preferences Connection speed. It only loads audio for 28k and 55k (i think), which is the default settings. Just go to Preferences->Quicktime Preferences->Connection Speed->and change it to whatever you're using.

    Quality & Download

    I watched it last night around 7pm MST and it was completely clear and the sound quality sounded like they were right next to me.

    I am on a t1, and watching it on a G3/400. (time to upgrade)

    also, anyone know a way to download the stream to a file? I've been trying to figure that out for a long time.

    Marco :cool:

    Just saw it with my own eyes. Just glad he didn't hurt himself. Actually quite surprised they didn't edit this out.
