    Mevo Start vs Hero 9

    GoPro records great... streaming is horrible. They only allow the ultra wide view (too wide, includes fence in the shot, and pushes the action way back). Mevo streams well but the recording is so so; mostly because of the limited resolution of the Mevo Start. I talk about this in a bit more...

    Streaming - Mevo and General

    Our Verizon plans have 20GB of hotspot data. We have a few phones on our plan and we rotate as needed if we need to spread the data out. That being said, most of the time we stream with a Smartphone (which doesn't then require hotspot) and record with a second device (usually a GoPro). For...

    Streaming - Mevo and General

    We have used RTMP to YouTube and have Verizon. But it is an unlimited plan an use hotspot to do so.

    Welcome back Blue! @texasck1 's summary is about as good as any I've ever heard. :-)

    How to enjoy watching streamed games...

    Linkinsightus Visionosis....the struggle is real!

    Hooray Colorado is Happening this summer!

    If the Spyder people wanted to do some road trippin' this summer, what weekend and where is the best Colorado tourney to spectate? Not looking to peddle our wares...but maybe, well, I have a couple ideas.

    Video Equipment Recommendations

    I would recommend GoPro for recording, but not streaming. The ultra wide field of view is the only FOV available when streaming. When recording, narrow and linear along with zoom are available to compose the perfect shot. Ultra wide will push the action away and include fence in the shot...

    Duke Bluedevil softball program

    Has it been mentioned in a while that this is a great forum? No place like it, at least from what I've found.

    game changer / team manager video question

    I would highly recommend, specifically early on in this process, to use a dedicated device to record, separate from your streaming device. Especially when it starts getting hot and WiFi devices start doing what wifi devices do in the heat.

    Passed ball or Stolen base

    I'd score that as a rope-a-dope. :-) Sucker the runner with a drop and get 'em out with a nice arm.

    What is the procedure a catcher should follow to appeal to the field ump on a checked swing?

    What Mmeece says above. If there isn't an up on the baseline (and we rarely have one on first and third) there isn't much use in asking for an appeal. But if there is, my catchers have been told to ask PU "can I get an appeal? (while pointing to the ump)". If they don't get a response on more...

    1st Home Run!

    Goosebumps. Thousands upon thousands of hours of captured video, most of which is never even watched once. Only to capture a moment in time that you will watch over and over for years to come. When hard work comes to fruition, it is a powerful thing. Well done Maggie. And you be proud, dad...

    Is say 128. This is GoPro, but good info: https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/SD-Cards-that-Work-with-GoPro-Cameras/ta-p/394308#HERO9Black

    Should continue to record to the SD card, even if the app drops. Are you keeping the app in the foreground? We are android folks, but I think the iPhone requires it be left in the foreground.

    Best place to video from?

    For a 2 camera setup, I like one behind the plate for the whole view. Then a second from a dugout across the field. But I will say, a multiple camera setup is a lot more work, especially if you are wanting players to watch. Your turnaround time will be critical for them to relate/remember the...

    Recording Live Games 101

    On item 2: On the one or more claws you are having trouble finding a mating link, move that claw to the vertical groove if on the horizontal(and visa versa, as needed). When we started early on, we were surprised to find out that there are no standards for chain link fence dimensions. Sort...

    Have you tried the Magic Arm? Less weight and more room to work with.

    Got a picture? I'm curious why it is so tall. Plus or Start...and if Plus, with the Boost?

    LynkSpyder pouch for battery charger?

    Last year was certainly the year we saw more heat related issues. A few things led to this: Our high season is generally in the March/April period (you know, right now...oy! No sleep and my hands hurt!). But because of COVID, our high season was June/July, when we are historically lower...

    LynkSpyder pouch for battery charger?

    One thing we have been playing with is mounting the bag on the upper slot and hanging over the camera. Shades a GoPro from the sun. Also reduces the profile on the fence.
