I'm thinking of buying an Apple TV for this webcast so I can watch on the big screen. Anyone have experience with this kind of rig?

Hi Terry and Alex,
It looks like Livestream has the ability to stream to mobile phones like the iPhone. Do you know if this is going to be available for the Moloka'i Hoe? Thanks and looking forward to seeing the race!

#3 Wed, 10/06/2010 - 4:42am

Hmmm that's a good question. I will see if I can find out for you.

#4 Wed, 10/06/2010 - 8:08am

Right on guy's, I hope everything goes good will be watching too. I'm going to try and hook my computer to 

my tv. I think you could do it if the tv is pc ready.

@ koacanoe-
we've got this setup at work and the best way to do it seems to be via HDMI. Most newer tv's have this input option, and it's simple because it's just the one cable to connect.
The trick is to make sure your computers video card will output to HDMI. We had a great new tv and great new computer, but needed to upgrade our video card on the cpu (to something a online video game junky would use) to make it work --- but the results were worth it.

Anowara to answer your question, yes you can watch our live web-cast of the Molokai hoe from your phone. Just make sure you have the flash player..whatever that means..I would go to and test it out..You can register there to join in on the chat too...

Yes, you can watch video on your iPhone or iPad without a flash player (which you can't get on your iDevice without jailbreaking it), livestream automatically converts it to the format your iDevice can use. You can't, however, watch it on an Apple TV. Regarding watching it on the bigscreen, if you can get a computer near your TV then you can probably plug it into your TV, assuming it's a newerish TV (i.e. an LCD or Plasma). Most LCDs, Plasmas, and DLPs have a VGA input - that'll be the blue jack with a bunch of little holes in it on the back of your TV. If it has this then you can plug it in just like any computer monitor.

If your TV doesn't have VGA but has HDMI and if you have a newerish computer with a DVI output (if your monitor normally plugs into the white plug where one of the pins is flat and wide), then you can use a simple converter cable which cost less than $10. DVI is the same thing as HDMI minus the sound and DRM, it's just a different plug. Dunno if any stores would it carry it though, otherwise overnighting might get expensive but you can search for "dvi hdmi cable" on amazon.

Salty dog - you probably didn't need a new video card if your great new computer already had DVI, just the cable. koacanoe - if that doesn't help let me know what your setup is (what plugs your TV and your computer have) and I'll let you know what you need.

Thanks Terry. I had tried out the link and it said the Ocean Paddler channel wasn't "mobile compatible". I think the first time I tried it said something different, but I don't remember. I wasn't sure if this was because there's nothing being broadcast or because Livestream selects which channels it creates mobile versions for. I will try it out on Sunday though and hope for the best. Otherwise, plenty of bars have wifi these days right?

#9 Thu, 10/07/2010 - 4:30pm

Will there be a text version? Possibly something like twitter? Unfortunately have a class around that time but I'd like to be able to check in on it and get updates, without trying to watch the stream.

#10 Fri, 10/08/2010 - 10:50am

Just today the link popped up that said the stream will not work on a mobile device. I read the instructions and it appears that the person broadcasting has to enable the mobile version from the broadcasting side. Once they do that then it will stream on mobile devices like iPhones or ipads. Here's to hoping... Especially since I won't be home for a big portion of the race.

#11 Fri, 10/08/2010 - 11:43am

Follow MolokaiHoe2010 on Twitter. They provided a few updates during the Na Wahine, but it was pretty sporadic. I think it's also linked to their Facebook account for anyone not on Twitter that's not going to be able to watch the stream.

#12 Fri, 10/08/2010 - 2:39pm

I will do my best to do updates here..we will for sure be doing updates on the facebook page. I want those of you who can't watch to be able to be in the loop to so I promise this technical challenged wahine will do her best for you.

#13 Fri, 10/08/2010 - 6:54pm

For those of you not able to watch the live webcast. Here is our FB page that I will update as the day goes on.

Hit me up and I will add you as a friend. Also, I will update here every so often tomorrow..

#22 Sun, 10/10/2010 - 1:41pm

I watch the Live video Shell made 3 person changes at the end of the race so I don't know where your getting this with only 7 paddlers. Primo went with 8 because of an injury to Peter K (shoulder). Kailua had 8 paddlers do to Luke getting injury (prop of the boat).

#23 Sun, 10/10/2010 - 2:03pm

no excuse hauli

#24 Sun, 10/10/2010 - 2:12pm

jfaumeran, what are you talking about?

Congrats to Shell for breaking the record (again) awesome effort. And thanks to the ocean paddler tv guys for the fantastic coverage - lastly hope Peter and Luke aren't too badly injured.... the prop injury sounded bad - something that always plays on my mind when I'm getting back on board the escort boat too.

#25 Sun, 10/10/2010 - 3:52pm

To teraiuira1 :
Exactly, and be precise, do you mean by "with only 7 paddlers" ?

#26 Sun, 10/10/2010 - 4:59pm

My understanding is that Luke's crew ironed the race because two of his crew helped get him to safety on Moloka'i. I could be wrong and maybe someone will correct me if I am.

#27 Tue, 10/12/2010 - 7:21am

squatty, no correction needed. You are not wrong.

#28 Tue, 10/12/2010 - 7:43am

jfaumeran and teraiuira1,

please elaborate, I am waiting.
