Windows Media Player and VLC both claim to do CC.   With VLC you can use
it to connect directly to your capture card which is getting your cable
TV feed.  Then you can Stream that capture out or just watch it.


WMP will play CC in UnitedStreaming videos when available.

Subject: Re: watching inauguration live over the Internet


Our issue was closed captioning... Getting the CSPAN to the projector
via VCR was not a tough challenge, and 80+ staff and students were able
to see the event on the big screen in our conference room We had an
interprester, of course. It really was great that everyone cld see it,
and so clearly.


I spent some time discussing the captioning issue with Comcast, and they
could only suggest using a big screen TV to get the captioning. Orig I
thought of using a converter box, then feeding the projector. Comcast
told me it wld work if our campus was setup to use set-top converter
boxes. Unfortunately, we are not, so that idea was out.


Any ideas on how to get captioning to appear through the projector ?

We spoke about this at last night's pizza meeting. Winooski used a very
high tech approach. At the exact time of the inauguration, we had people
turn on their televisions in their classrooms. We have a TV in every
one. We also set up a gigantic television in the auditorium for anyone
who wanted to bring large groups to watch it.

Dear List:

I was out sick that day, but could track utilization from home.

One issue we ran into was installation of updated FLASH.

Not something I tend to unless it is needed.

Had a number of users who could not view a stream due to outdated flash,
install it on their own (permission reasons).

Anyone run into problems, anyone sail through easily?

Anyone install silverlight for the official PIC site?
