I didn't record this first one; it was as much a test of the service/software and it was a discussion. I need to learn now to change the "spotlight" without muting everyone's audio and there are a few other things I want to tweak for the regular monthly conferences. If possible, I want to have a "producer" to handle those duties so I can focus solely on the discussion. It's quite likely that I'll broadcast the Texas Self-Defense & Deadly Force Laws Seminar that I'm doing at PSC in January. Obviously, this presumes that the bandwidth testing at the Club proves we can support video conferencing. Since the stream is going through Zoom.us' server, we don't have to be able to support that load, but we do need sufficient bandwidth to send and receive video and audio without interruption.

Thanks to everyone who participated and helped with the testing.
Chas.
I contacted zoom.us for the spotlight issue and they recommended to get their latest software version. I assume that the quality of the group microphone and the background noise at each meeting site would dictate the quality of this feature.

It is like 3 yrs we did not have an event in DFW.

Re: Video Conference: Open-Carry Discussion

We should have an Agenda and someone would have to take meeting notes and action list.
What is the purpose of the Meeting?
Such as,
What are the best ways to rally support for OC for the public in general? Is it helpful, or not?
What are the best ways to rally support for OC for the LEO communities?
What are the best ways to rally support for OC for the Texas Reps and Senates? Already Chas, explained the true and tried method that was working since 1995
How the attending groups can help?
How to deal and co-operate with of OC Supporters such as OCT, and OCTyler.

Questions
Will OC affect 30.06?
etc,...

Re: Video Conference: Open-Carry Discussion

If in each big city we can organize a group meet, we can book for free a conference room in a the city Library. We may need only an Fast speed internet connection. I am not sure if our city library has free Wifi service, but I can check.

Then we need to list the cities where the meets will happen and who is the host responsible to lead the meet.
As I said, I am in.

If each meet has 5-10 members, then, we may have up to 250 attending.
