Doesn't stream to an iPhone in calgary.  :(

No audio, but this is a live feed we don't usually get, so all's good.

Stream is on SpaceX now, Doesn't look HD, So NASA might give better quality if you have access to their HD feed.

EDIT: Or not, NASA is just rebroadcasting it.  :-[
Better than not.  Not hearing any audio commentary, but that may be the job of the status bar in the feed.

For the record, I'm seeing a 19 second lag on the SpaceX webcast, assuming that the T- clock is aiming for exactly 3:00:00.  The NASA TV retransmission is another 5 seconds back.
PSA #1: EST does NOT mean "Eastern Time".  Use "Eastern" or "ET" instead, all year round, and avoid this common error.  Google "EST vs EDT".
PSA #2: It's and its: know the difference and quietly impress grammar pedants.  Google "angry flower its" .

Agreed, I was just hoping NASA would use their HD cameras they used from the wet dress.

We should get some audio at T-13

Actually better for nerds -- sounds like test team audio.

The forum visitations are at the third of a shuttle countdown (at this stage), so launch day's going to be interesting!

Audio for a moment then.

Watching the vapors come off, is it me or is the webcast still not smooth?

Both the Livestream site and SpaceX feed are glitchy and halting for me, but NASA TV is running fine.  21 minutes and counting....


I believe that is incorrect, that the second stage has no Dracos.

But there are Dracos on the Dragon capsule.  Doesn't that make more sense, that the existing Dracos on the capsule would be used for attitude control, not that extra Dracos were added to the US.  More torque applied from the capsule position as well.

Webcast is smooth at this end, but they better change that camera angle..
