The Jan 29th 2007 ObsCast has been released. It has some still pictures on the summit - shows volunteers working - and summit staff playing. Why is this the right picture? Check it out.

REQUEST:

Add RSS capability to the ObsCast page. Then when a new video is added we can get notified.

I like the new Obscast, a nice change from weather related videos.

They should try that with a tent in 50mph winds.

Right click on the link to the obscast and save it to your computer. Then you can re-size it.

Its much more stable when you do it that way as well.

Can you work to improve the microphone setup? It is very hard to hear especially when the speaker is in a large room.

Today's ObsCast was truly rivetting. It appears that they fixed the sound problem, but the video looks like it was shot with a cell phone camera. And not a very good one.

My favorite part was setting the dishwasher. That was some good stuff.

The mic for the latest Obscast was a lot better. Thanks! I am assuming the last segment used M&Ms.

No, no, no. M&Ms are real tooth chippers.

Somebody really worked over those shovels this past winter ;)

I hope they still work next winter.

The 5-14 ObsCast was well conceived and well executed. Sometimes they're less than riveting or poorly lit, but this week they captured a mood and put it down in black and white. The penguin was a nice touch. I think Brent speaks for all the ski/board bums out there; did you see the sadness in his eyes?

What a weird place to store your cramp-ons though, in the ceiling tiles???

I can't get the obscast anymore. Can someone tell me what settings I need under internet options to allow me to view the obscast? I think they were changed somehow (little fingers?). Thanks!

The key is to make sure you are signed into the regular MWO site using the Account Login link at the upper right of every page. I just confirmed I can get at it with my settings.

Are you at the point where you see all the ObsCasts by date? Or can you not get logged in at all.

I can choose the obscast by date but, my desktop (xp) only plays audio and my laptop (vista) only shows that little picture or icon in the upper left corner and nothing else. The desktop always played them fine but the laptop has never been able to play them and it's only a few months old. That's why I was thinking it's a setting? Thanks, guys.

You need Quicktime. It might try to play in Windows Media, but force it to use the latest version of Quicktime.

I have Quicktime on both computers. Obscast stopped working on one and on the other it won't run at all. That's why I was thinking it's a setting I need to change under Internet Options. I just don't know what should be set to allow what I need.

Rich,

Make sure you are logged into your MWO account and then go to http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/cam/west/members/sunrise.mpg

This will bring the West camera sunrise video up in its own browser window. From there it is easy to File-Save As and see if you can run it off your hard disk. It will not work unless you have logged in first.

Then try right clicking on the ObsCast link to File-Save As and run that off your hard disk. If that works, then it may be a browser setting.

Thanks again for the help, guys. I reinstalled QuickTime on my laptop and all is good now. As long as I can watch the ObsCast somewhere, I'm happy!

I am glad someone got the parody we were doing. We were worried there for a while there. We have a list of ideas for future obscasts so stay tuned, at least on our shift...

I copied a deck camera image used in the ObsCast from the regular archive to the "2007 favorites" album.

Another great obscast with our new mascot, Marty! It's great to see you guys put that together for all of us to see how he is doing and to see his personality. Loved it.:)
