Please roll out the dev blogs that deal with stuff in space/spaceships.

Also, this isn't really a new feature, what would have been of more value is that you saw people wanting to do this so you enhance it by offering more than what we can do now. ie offering stream support so we can watch jita live, or an easy converter/filter so we don't have to automatically convert everything to bik. that would be innovative, and features those in the community would like that use this.

That is some bad encryption CCP... I hope that programmer didn't write the encryption for credit card information for the Eve website Shocked

On the subject of credit card information, give us that encryption sequence, see who can break it and then you'll find out who has way too much time on their hands Twisted

Now this, CCP Zulu, is how you write a devblog.

Video works fine, sound can be temperamental I have problems with the sound coming in hi-speed bursts, as far as I can tell with some quick google-fu it may well be a problem with the binkw32.dll file, unfortunately you can't replace it as it's checksummed by the client on start :(. My binked video sound works fine in the bink player but not in eve which is a bummer :(

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

um... THIS, THIS and THIS ^^^^

That would be fantastic and actually give CQ a purpose. I'd definitely begin using it if this type of feed were available. CCP, please consider this feature.

*implying people actually got CQ turned on*

(bar the rabble above; actually quite fun implementation CCP, but it's just a 'fun thing' like the snowball launcher, actually worse since so few uses CQ.. content please)

I was wondering what to convert. MLP:FiM is so obvious! And maybe some Invader Zim.

What to convert to check out this nifty new thing.... ah yes! ponies!

Maybe video feeds from select deployable sattelites around space?

Just to add:

Rad tools will allow you to turn that video sequence into a windows screen saver.

I turned about a minute of HD video from the alliance tourney "Jita Cam" from a few years back into my screen saver at work.

Sort of like an aquarium screen saver, but with EVE ships.

BTW, when bored, I counted the different ships that were on screen during that minute, and there were over 30 different ship hulls.

OK, I found where to put the files on a Mac, but how do I do the conversion on a Mac?

Edit: also the "Space equals 20" thing: We were told to "watch this space" for blogs about more content. The announcement of this latest blog was the 20th thread made in the EVE information portal. If space equals 20, then 20 equals space, so this 20th thread must be the space we were supposed to watch. And its full of a how-to for adding movies to CQ.
