  1. Thanks for this guys.
  2. Yeah, it won't do that.
  3. I believe so. eBay and Amazon have new cameras that become available now and then, and the app is still available in the App Store. There are also teams who own them but never really understood how to use them, so I’ll keep these videos current until a better solution becomes available. As for support, I’m not sure we need that. There’s a lot of repair and mod videos on YouTube for adding better speakers and microphones. Even if the app goes, you can still write a script that the camera will substitute for the QR code.
  4. Sorry! By now I'm sure you already have your answer but for others, yes, there's a new version of this video coming out with that answers this. The new YouTube page has an "Enable Auto Start" switch on the event page. Switch that on and your live streams will go live automagically.
  5. The 1000 sub limitation is part of the requirement for "mobile" live streaming to YouTube. You will see this as a limitation using a smartphone, tablet or GoPro for example regardless of how your device connects to the internet. You can alternately use a Yi Action Camera as the app for it's connection circumvents this issue. See this video for more information.
  6. Any camera will be shaky if the connection is poor. T-Mobile is Sprint. We recommend Verizon. Seems to be more reliable across the board.
  7. Yes it’s specified very clearly, but see I think the paragraph at the end places that rule into the “maximum value free” design. That’s the problem. 3:12:17 puts that into the “free” category and then goes on to expand on what happens if that rule were to be exceeded even stating that it may be done. Basically an invitation. 3:12:17 becomes a rule that’s included in the free design and a lot of guys though it stood on its own and apparently it’s not, according to the the rule makers, and 3:12:17. I don’t see how the argument that it’s illegal according to the rules can be won when all of the rules there are put into context. Pull it away separately, sure, but I don’t see how here. I’d agree the performance language in the last rule is where someone might have a decent argument. That’s where I’d focus anyway. Can you tell I’ve been sued before? Lol!
  8. Buddy... no. IMO they definitely do say you can exceed the amount points in the rule book. In that paragraph the word “MAY” is in all caps too. This is why I think so many guys flipped out about the cage design. They aren’t interpreting the paragraph at the end. “The“maximum, value-free” roll-cage includes all pads, points, tubes and triangulations necessary to maintain an extremely high degree of safety, while keeping costs in- check and competition well-balanced. Teams MAY exceed the design and application of the “maximum, value-free” roll-cage; however, additional value will be assessed by the Tech Inspector, based on the perceived performance enhancement of the roll-cage... That’s where it’s all at IMO and apparently in the eyes of tech. So IMO the rule book goes out of its way to point out you can do this.
  9. You know what happens when you assume, right? Haha!
  10. Yeah, I’ve heard this same argument since that Sunday. But the rule book also states later that points would be assessed for anything added that’s not free, so that may be a loophole they seemed to have exploited. I haven’t heard anyone else say that, it’s just what my easily distracted mind went too when all hell broke loose on FB. What about that? If that’s the case, then the center line rule is really more for the free side of cage engineering. I mean why else have a rule later that says basically BTW, if you add more you’ll get points?? It’s like an invitation. What do you think?
  11. Success! And usually I have half a dozen questions before I understand anything. Thanks for taking the time to type all that out.
  12. I’m easily confused as you all know, so you’re wanting, let’s say, a basic ‘88 Civic to automatically be assessed a higher VPI even if “all possible mods” (which sounds difficult to discern) are not there? Where should they draw the line on “all possible mods”? Type R platform swap? Seems like that would be unfair to the extreme to the entry level cars coming in and a moving target best solved by using the baseline and points additive system already in place. Please elaborate.
  13. Hey C_leffe. Sorry about the trophy. I did forward a message out about this to the company slack to get back with you but most everyone is getting ready for a race this weekend. If you haven't already, I'd send an email to info@champcar.org. That's usually faster than using social media like the forum and FB and is more of a guarantee to be seen and routed to the right person(s). See you at the track!
  14. The clips I ran together were not from any of the race broadcasts. They were from a few of my race recaps, a random drivers meeting and a couple of the CEO's red flag videos. 98% of the ChampCar video's you see are coming from my desk, including the dull ones. Unlike some who think they've seen the majority, I've seen every single one. I've been working with these people for four years now and know each of them well. I can assure you that they are all grateful for the members and speak of it in videos as I've demonstrated. Even the tippy top management know that racers can race anywhere with anyone and speak their appreciation. That's why Bill or I make it a point to thank everyone at the close of the broadcasts and the Race Recaps. We do so because we know we speak for all of us. You can be sure that running a club like this is very challenging on multiple fronts. As the leader, you must have a very thick hide because you take a litany of continuous criticisms that are in no way fair to you, your intensions or your staff as you work hard to do good for the staff, its members and the good of the club. That thick hide can sometimes work both ways. I am routinely impressed by this clubs leadership, which as in insider I can tell you, is generally underappreciated. A little grace from the membership and a lot of grace from the leadership is what makes everything work and apparently it's working. So, as I and many others have said over the years, thank you so much for choosing ChampCar as your club! We realize there are several choices for you, that you can race with any organization, and we genuinely appreciate your continued support of this series as we all work together to both enjoy and further this fantastic sport of endurance motor racing. -Paul Veltum - Broadcast Engineer / Producer ChampCar.Live.
  15. Sorry you find my videos dull. I guess that's to be expected. Since you've already seen the majority of my videos, here's a sample of a few I threw together that would likely surprise you. I have many more examples.
