If possible, recording the pre-launch live stuff would be greatly appreciated.

Webcast start time has moved back 30 mins, so I'm guessing launch will have also moved back.

EDIT: Yes, the countdown is holding, according to the clock in the top right corner.

Can you record using something like CamStudio or Realplayer?

Looks like we're gonna have a feed for a little while, just an hour and a half from live coverage.

I could, yes, but I would not be able to post live updates here without it capturing that.

We'll just have to live without one SpaceX Launch video.

The press release said video would be available to media post-launch, so that might be an option for the archives.

And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

You mean the move to the live newsfeed section. The mods decided not to move the thread as there's other SpaceX threads here and it'll only confuse matters ;)

Launch rescheduled for 5:35 PM PDT / 8:35 PM EDT / 00:35 UTC

Feed is working fine for me, they seem to have dropped the live image at the pad, however.

We'll just have to live without one SpaceX Launch video.

I am able to capture the flv video feed using the FireFox Download Helper Extension, and then play it back with VLC or mplayer.  Persumably I could convert it to any format with mplayer.  This is under Linux.

The captured stream has a TON of errors in it, if the Open Source codecs are correct.  I'm really worried this stream is going to fall to pieces once the imagery starts moving and the compression ratio does down.  I remember that happened on Flight 1. 

Does anyone know how to adjust the buffer size in Adobe Flash?
