heh - a typo while transcribing had me puzzled long enough not to be first (or quicker at least) P

had a typo too und actually fuc*ed up the order since i used the screen on the left and only noticed afterwards that there actually is an indication of the order ^^

"OR IANDSYOU..... YO" didnt make much sense and i figured it out :D although i liked the YO at the end of my first version :D

Channel 7 EvETV.

Live Stream next Allie Tournament to be watch in CQ, or WiS maybe?

What these guys said. Streaming EVETV into CQ and on big screens in the public spaces beyond The Door for alliance tournaments and maybe FanFest.

The CQ screen has WAY more potential than this extremely user unfriendly semi-hack. If you want to unlock the true potential of the WiS you're going to have to do a lot better on stuff like this.

On a positive note: i guess this is a very small first step in the right direction.

Nyancat and Daft Punk music videos now on loop in MY CQ.

Oh god, I may never need to log off ever again...

CCP letting us have some fun? A small step in the right direction.

I approve.

Good stuff... streaming from EvE TV & fanfest from CQ would be good future goal :)

Thanks for this anyways - will be looking cartoons from now on.

Get classic forum style - custom videos to captains quarters screen

Ok, I have a question about "Streaming"...

Let's say, in theory, we were able to setup a streaming to CQ to share with all our buddies when we can go into each others' CQ...

Would displaying a specific video "in your home" with your "Friends" apply to a digital setting? Essentially, all the qualifications apply - you're not sharing it with 100's of people and you're partaking of it in the context of Private use.

Imagine streaming Netflix to the CQ and watching a movie with your mates? Interesting concept.

And... how about a modification to the Juke Box to allow us to play our videos on demand rather than waiting for it to cycle through? Pirate

Where I am.

Congratulations: we've now been given a feature which players have already given us.

If they could make the screen display the contents of the IGB, that'd be kind of cool Not very useful, but cool.

Fix POSes.  Every player should want one (even if all players can't have one).

I'll watch what I put on the TV, not what you do.... or something like that!

This is an amusing blog and well played for turning a borderline mod into a tolerated byproduct. I am amazed at the bitterness of people in this thread. Still awaiting important words and important in-game changes of course but this is a nice, simple aside.

Oh this is right stuff. Bring more of that.

Please, somebody make a site where I can download EVE or other sci-fi related materials. And it should be the legal stuff.

Oh forgot; if I cannot choose what I want to see on the screen I at least need a randomizer option.

Just make it possible to display web sites on that thing and let us handle it from there.
3rd party developers would have a field day. Imagine live economic data from eve-central.. a customized subdomain to work with the small screen. Or what the guys at eve-kill could do with it.. or battleclinic.

First thing after logging in each time I'd turn the TV to the eve-kill channel and check for the latest kills in the constelation i'm currently in. Yep, I'd turn my CQ on for this.
Watching silly videos on that tiny screen inside my screen would get old so fast I'm not even gonna bother.

Is there a time limit on how long the videos can be? (ie after 20 min, it automatically goes to next video even if previous is not completed)

confirmed: the code that flashes on the left screen is an ascii sequence that, when translated in the corrrect (59 4F 55 20 48 41 56 45 20 57 41 59 20 54 4F 4F 20 40 55 43 48 20 54 49 40 45 20 4F

Only thing this gives us is an official way to do it that won't result in bans for modding the client. I'll take it.
