I think gospel is resonating in itself Why ad techno graphics to it Gospel is of the soul, not technics @PaulAlanClif

M. Riley Jones in response to my article on church production “Why Free Live Streaming on YouTube Could Cost You More Than You Think”

If a church wishes to continue using YouTube to lifestream its services, should they get both the CCLI and the Christian Copyright Solutions stream licenses to cover themselves?

Bernd in response to my article “Small Church Live-streaming”

Interesting read, thanks for sharing. We’re als (Sic!) looking into streaming services, and I was wondering whether you know encoder appliances that support both regular cameras and phone cameras. I think it would be great to have the fixed cameras for most of the time, while also being able to use the flexibility of a phone to get up close at special moments.
