Services like Netflix have made streaming video mainstream. From two different instances in my own life recently I see that the possibilities for video streaming are endless.
The first came this past Saturday night. Our Middle School was putting on a musical. My daughter had lots of friends in it and really wanted to go.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to make it… but we were able to see it! Our school recently started streaming school events so all we had to do was go to the video stream on our home PC and then Chromecast the video to the TV in our family room.
In a matter of moments we were watching the performance. BTW, everyone did a fantastic job.
Our second brush with streaming video came yesterday. My daughters had a dance competition and one of their Grandmas couldn’t make it but thanks to streaming video technology she could watch on her laptop.
It was the first competition we’ve been to, that I know of, that streamed the performances. I certainly hope more do in the future.
This weekend sure did open my eyes to just how mainstream video streaming has become. I’m really excited about the possibility for family and friends to be able to virtually attend my daughters’ school events.
If you’re interest in getting your own Chromecast you can check it out here.
Do you have any video streaming success stories? I’d love to hear them.
