This seems to be interesting, since you can measure the pros and cons well over those years. Matheus.

Are these eventually going to be posted for download somewhere (like last year)? My connection is just too slow for streaming.

But if you not want to wait, do this: 1) Add on your Chrome: "Video Downloader Professional" (Free). 2) Play the Video on ustream like you would do normally. 3) The extension will highlight, and now you can pick both: Low Or High resolution *.flv file. I use VLC player to play *.flv, but you can use another one. Bye, Matheus.

Nice and I learned a new trick: Scroph from reddit: "To get the direct link of a streamed video I usually open up the dev tools (networ tab), click play then wait for the link to show up in there. It doesn't always work though.." And here is the file: http://upmv09.ntt.upmv.ustream.tv/0/1/47/47947/47947981/1_18106608_47947981.flv Matheus.

Thanks for the tip. Will try it out, but I see I have lots of new options to watch already.

Hi, I would love to spam my colleges here at Ubisoft Montreal with DConf 2014 talks ... but UStream is blocked studio wide. Is there any plans to mirror the talks somewhere else? We can stream from Vimeo and Youtube. I won't force feed every programmer here ... but we are at least 500 mainly coding C++ and C#. IMHO we are first class potential victims for D. Thx, Olivier p.s: My boss already agreed that I code my next tool in D. I'll let you know in due time...

As mentioned above, downloading the video with VideoDownloadHelper (FF) or a Chrome equivalent works.

Dicebot has been uploading them on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaYYN56VR7Z4SSoO7ws0-jA/videos I use his channel, as every web video player I've ever used blows in its own special way but youtube is the least bad.

Nice! Thank you. If I may... this channel should be advertised properly, something more official. Else, you'll probably end up referencing that link often in the coming weeks. People should not have to dig in forum threads to find your good stuff; the prime time talks of 2014. My two cents, Olivier

Not at all, it's a fair point you raise.

None of us have sticky-post credentials, this system doesn't actually support them. (The web interface at forums.dlang.org is really a front-end for an NNTP newsgroup served from news.digitalmars.org, which is how some of us access it. Heck, I'm posting this from Thunderbird right now.)

Yes, please do! Or at least to whatever extent is permitted. It'd be very cool to eventually hear that the next Splinter Cell, or Assassin's Creed, or whatever inevitably-major title from you guys was aided in some way by D. :)

There is no such thing as a sticky thread here. This isn't a normal web forum. It's a newsgroup with multiple front-ends to it. You can view it as a newsgroup, a mailing list, or via the web forum. The result is that it has no features which aren't compatible with all three - including sticky threads. - Jonathan M Davis

I don't know if Chuck reads this thread but one thing I totally forgot to ask him during DConf is why he does not start with introduction to range concept before proceeding to somewhat more complicated thread / fiber streams with similar semantics. Or it is something assumed trivial and thus not mentioned? :)

The built-in can be deprecated. And the compromise solution is to return the result from the reverse() of Phobos. Sometimes breaking your the rules a little is the best thing to do. The Deque struct methods should be in camelCase (and possibly fulfill the range protocol). Bye, bearophile
