Did anyone else have any issues with the stream dropping out a ton last night?

The first set was terrible, lots of drop outs and when it did play the audio levels would randomly spike way loud. Similar to when a tv show goes to commercial brake.

No dropouts for the second set at all, but dealing with the dropouts for the first set was almost unbearable.

When it starts buffering refresh the browser. I had a couple issues. The sound definitely was a problem. That is the first time the sound has messed up for me

Ours was about 90% up and super, 10% crappy. Minor sound level variance at one point, but it was mostly great for us.

The Funky Bitch was the worst of it, we only saw/heard maybe 50% of the song.

thing is it wasn't even buffering. It would just stop, go to the start screen (black with play button in center) During last years stream the one night we had issues it would always buffer for a few seconds and restart. not so this time around.

didn't skip a beat second set, but the audio issues did pop up once or twice.

PTers were bitching about it last night. But they bitch about everything, including bitching about people bitching about whatever.

I was on the free stream for the second set, and there was a jump in the audio a few times, and one or two drops for about 2-3 seconds and then come back.

The worst part was the UStream commercial's. During the middle of a song you would just hear the sponson spot "Balls of Steel!".

If you are using google chrome I *think* there is a plugin that will block youtube and ustream in video commercials. I haven't searched it out myself but saw it being talked about a while back on another forum.

We had no buffering issues, but the mix was tinny and 'off' throughout much of the show. Had no issues the night prior...
