This should be all working now! Sorry about that, seems like the video got caught right as a backend site update was going through.

I recently wrapped up the current Stormlight Archives and really enjoyed them for the most part, though it sounds like I really need to jump on the Malazan stuff (which I apparently already have in my audible library!). Also, based on the books you have listed you might want to look into Seveneves by Stephenson. Not my absolute favorite, but has some really great and memorable parts.

Sorry, still have to edit and put it together today. Got behind last week with the holiday and we didn't get to record everything we needed until late on Friday. Should be up later today.

Looks like this is most likely related to an update for the Tricaster (our video switcher). Looking more into it, but might be a little bit until a solution (hot fix for the update or I roll back to a previous version) goes live. Thanks for all the data.

For a variety of reasons things can be mastered at varying levels. Sometimes videos don't go through a post process to get them up faster, or something funny may have happened with a hardware compressor (gameplay acted oddly, somebody was screaming, etc). Our videos tend to run long so sometimes blanket normalization or compressors over the whole thing can misbehave. We try our best to master to around the same levels though and I'll check and see if that's still happening. You did say PLEASE. Thanks for the input.

Also, this all reminds me of this:

Folks tend to make things very loud on the internet...

Just a quick update. There should be a fix for the Roku coming soon, possibly this week. It is being actively worked on. I personally don't know much about how the devices choose which version of the videos to serve up, but our top men are on it. After the Roku app is looked at they are going to try and pin the 720p version in the API for other devices or apps that we don't have control over until folks can get in there themselves and do their thing.

Thanks for the patience!

Sorry, I was never able to track down exactly what is causing this. Each coast currently has similar setups and profiles for the site streams, so it's odd that you wouldn't get it on the West coast streams.

That all being said, we have a new piece of streaming gear ordered for here and hopefully should arrive and be implented soon. We'll have to see if that problem still persists after that. If it does, I might just need to get you guys on a chat or something and have you watch a test stream while I adjust settings!

Same problem with this week's video. @vinny

Hmm, I'll take a look and see if I can track down where this is happening in the chain. Unfortunately, I hardly ever see the actual stream so this is helpful.

We're Back!

Ok, you all know the drill. Post any game you'd recommend we check out below. Posting the game name in its own line makes things easier to read and count when we're looking over the posts.

Thanks!
