Drew confirms his position as the most awesome person ever by recognizing that Jumanji board. I was so glad someone noticed!

Are you sure that's not Jason? He uploaded the video. Now that I think of it, I've never paid attention if the recorder and the uploader are always the same.

Listening back, it definitely sounds like Drew to me. Jason piped in earlier in the quick look about the brightness, though. I imagine they're both in the control room for Jason's first couple weeks; that's how it seemed with that Freedom Stream last Thursday.

Accurate! Generally, the "Posted by" name is the person who did all the work recording and editing the video. That's why the Freedom Stream post has two names, because we were both working the boards. For edited pieces that incorporate multiple people's camera work (like some of the E3 videos), it's usually the person who did the editing.

The cheapest 1080p60 capturing device of the kind that uses the computer for crunching so that the incoming video isn't lagged by several seconds costs around 21,000 yen ($200 US) and is called the MonsterX U3.0R, a USB3 box that requires certain top notch USB3 chipsets (Intel, Renesas/NEC).

The cheapest internal PCIe card that gives 1080p60 of this lagless kind is the 512n1 that goes for about 33,000 yen ($320 US), and that one can also be picky and choosy. These two devices let you record at rates that require up to 900 gigabytes for an hour of footage (requires SSDs in RAID).

Like everything else good in the world, you get these two from Japan exclusively, and there is no Mac support.

And my experiments in video capturing think that 4mbps for 720p60 is 100% fine but 8mbps is stretching it for 1080p30 if the game is moving a lot of pixels like a racer, so 1080p60 would be a logistical pain.

Call me when they've got SDI out!

Just FYI, download button doesn't seem to be working on this video.

Is there no download archive for this one??

I hope we can download these videos. I need them for a long flight on friday.

They won't be downloadable until we can upload our own recorded versions.

We wanted to get these up ASAP, so we're basically pulling in the server-side archives from our livestream service (which are not downloadable), rather than using our own uploads (which, since we're streaming all day, we're currently unable to upload). We'll be uploading our own versions later, hopefully in the next day or so.

Some hot Formula E action! I think the cars look and sound super cool.

On Drew's question on making faces without a having a mirror here is Tommy Edison's answer to how he learned to smile as a blind person. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgYi0R-46oI It at least gives some semblance of an answer without ever seeing your own face.

YES! That's exactly the answer I was hoping to get! That video is fascinating, especially the part about flipping somebody off. I really want to go watch all that guy's videos now.
