I knew that Google hangouts had issues but I also thought that you could adjust the quality while hosting an event by adjusting your camera settings during a live stream. Nope. Google only allows you to make general changes and then they compress the streamed video until it looks and sounds terrible.
Unless I can make some changes via other options for streaming events, the group battles here at the parlor are not going to happen. I plan to start making some cool video battles too, but now that we have tried this out I can see that I need to get my lighting setup much better first.
I am going to be working on ALL of this over the coming weeks...
