Apologies to all for the six videos auto starting - I don't understand why it is happening. I have the embed code set to autoplay=false using ustream's standard coding for the flash vids, but it still auto starts all the videos. Quite annoying.

If anyone is familiar with ustream's embed code, have a look at the code used:

<embed flashvars="loc=%2F&amp;auto play=false&amp;vid=2076993" width="480" height="386" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" src="http://www.ustream.tv/flash/video/2076993" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" />

(not sure if this will print well on the page)

and tell me what could be changed.

Mark

Mark, I guess Victoria is a great example of folks appreciating the opportunity to host an event, and going all out to make it happen.
That invitations for the audience to sample 'spro  from several of the contestants is awesome, and in my mind brings a sort of human touch.
After all, to paraphrase you have often said, the point of all this should be a sort of trickle down effect, that is, to lift the level of competence in all cafes to a higher level.
It must have been fun.

I think that 'auto play' should not have a space embeded; i.e. autoplay=false is what is needed.

Checked on the ustream site - the other poster is correct: embed flashvars="autoplay=false"

And here's an example of the auto play as false on a website: http://www.takepart.com/videos/cbs-live-stream-ustream/19925
