This Saturday, Paul answered a few of the 3 million questions submitted by email, phone or postcard. This chat was broadcast live by VH1 in the USA, UK and Germany. It was also broadcast via internet, as was the following 30 min chat with Paul during which he answered the questions that were incoming live. Basically, this actually worked quite well: Video and audio were available in various bandwidths for Java-enabled browsers. Audio alone could be retrieved via Real Audio, and the chat also worked for Java-enabled browsers. Users behind firewalls could still receive the streaming video (a new picture every few seconds). The streaming audio did not work for me but the Real Audio did. The chat - well, I could connect and stay there for 5 minutes before my computer crashed ;-( In case you've missed the event - VH1 will air several repeats, and if you follow the links on the flaming pie homepage, you can find a transcript of the webchat, and maybe you can still receive the streaming video.
