Webchat video update...

I was beginning to wonder what had happened to the video of the live chat...

Well, my question has been answered and as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the following has been posted on FoJG:

Due to technical issues, we discovered that the files from Josh's Ustream Chat were corrupted during the recording process. We attempted to salvage them, but unfortunately nothing can be done. As a result, we will not be able to post the video version of the webcast. Josh had a lot of fun chatting with you and hopes to schedule another Ustream chat soon. We sincerely apologize for the confusion and will make sure to resolve the technical issues for the next webcast.

This is sad news for everyone who missed it due to lack of notice, not being a paid up member of FoJG or had issues with their internet connection like me.

Hopefully a new chat will happen soon and they'll have all the technical issues sorted out.

This YTube video appears to have the only footage of the chat so here it is...


  1. Thanx to Yulia for sharing this vid.

  2. It was too bad that everyone couldn't view the live chat, but i'm sure it will happen again.. as for the lack of notice, maybe Josh had something in his schedule cancel and had some extra time?? never know?? And he was like let's do it!! I just wish there wasn't such negative buzz about it. I'm sure it took a lot to pull that off, and I hope that all the sour Grobies don't ruin it... and that there will be a next time.

    Thanks for posting the youtube clip!!

  3. It's one of those things that no matter how much notice is given, there will always be people who will miss it for what ever reason.

    During the chat, Josh made mention that the video would be available for everyone, so I think that helped calm the masses, but unfortunately with the technical difficulties it's understandably disappointing for those who missed out.

    And even though I was there for it, my internet connection wasn't the best and it was almost like I wasn't there (LOL), but I still loved every minute of it and can't wait for the next one.

  4. Thanks Yulia and you for posting the youtube clip!!

    Is the webchat only for members of FOJG or is it open for everyone? How can I learn how to enter?


  5. There's only been one webchat so far and it was for FoJG members only. Details were posted on the news page of FoJG only a day before the chat.

    In my other post about the webchat (http://i-heart-josh-groban.blogspot.com/2009/01/first-ever-live-webchat.html) I mentioned that a message was posted on JG.com that said -

    "This is the first 'test run' for many future chats with Josh. We're looking at what format will work best. Sorry we couldn't include everyone this time."

    I'm thinking we must be due for another blog or webchat soon (fingers crossed)...


Have a thought? Let me know what you think...
