Live Streaming of Monthly Meetings
From 7:00 PM, the monthly meeting can be watched live at http://tv.mpcug.mobi on your PC, Mac, iPad and iPhone. Some but not all Android tablets can work as well. We will start broadcasting from approximately 6:00 PM with some sample streams for testing, so you will have time to set up your computer, television or tablet to watch. Computer users will need to use a web browser with a recent version of Flash Player installed. To get the latest version, visit http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ or install Google Chrome which comes bundled with the latest version of Flash Player. Your iPad, iPhone and compatible Android tablets will play the stream in their respective media players without additional software.
NB: It is expected that watching the entire live stream (including breaks) will use approximately 400 MB of your monthly allowance. Exercise caution if you are on limited data-allowance 3G/4G wireless plans to avoid excess usage charges.

High Resolution (and Streaming) Videos of the Monthly Meeting Presentations available

July 2015 Videos now available for download.
Office 365 Upon entering a username and password, videos of the monthly meeting may be downloaded. Videos of presentations at the meetings from April 2014 to July 2015 are available. These are large file size high resolution videos. If your data download allowance and time is limited, by far the preferred option is to order the videos on Disc from the MelbPC Office on 03 9276 4000 for $4.00 delivered. In particular, the files sizes are too large to download with most wireless broadband plans. The disc also contains all copies of PC Update and the alternate Monthly Newsletter.
