Help WCRadio test BlizzCon P2P Video seed

This coming Tuesday, October 11th, is WoW Radio’s First Birthday!  On our anniversary we will be doing the first live video broadcast test and we need your help. Join irc.wowirc.com #blizzcon before or on Tuesday and be there from 8am – 2pm EST (5am – 11am PST, 1pm-7pm UK time) and you will be able to watch our first live video feed. Download mIRC at http://www.mirc.com and connect to the above channel, or try our Java applet by clicking the button “Chat” on the left side. Once in, type /join #blizzcon to be in our BlizzCon channel, and /nick yournamehere to change your alias.

We are trying to overload the server as much as possible so bring as many people as you can to watch. Viewers with all kinds of connections are welcome as we would like to determine who can and can’t connect using different streams. You will be required to download a special media player that enables you to watch a BitTorrent-based video stream. The stream distributes the load of the live feed amongst many different viewers enabling everyone to watch us at higher resolutions.

Thanks for your paitence and see you Tuesday!
