[Linux-aus] Request for creation of "Video Recording and Streaming" subcommittee

The technology and workflow used by LCA in 11 & 12 (and 13 from my understanding) is very different to the setup 2005 used, so this is an erroneous statement; Flumotion/icecast/etc streaming issues do not affect the saved video.  This is by intentional design.

Tim is entirely right; streaming provides an incredibly valuable QA loop which positively increases video/audio quality of the final video recordings.

Actually no. In 2005 LCA had live streaming which worked fairly well. 
However it turned out that the capturing of these streams didn't work 
correctly so there was effectively no video recorded.
