Why do these live feeds never work?

Why do these live feeds never work?

I have never been able to view these videos of Tesla live events. Is there anyone who has it up?

Volker.Berlin | June 22, 2012

Worked great for me over here in Berlin, Germany.

wbrown01 | June 22, 2012

I have been sitting here since 3:30 EDT, then I waited till 6:30 EDT and it is now 7:18 EDT. Nothing, Tesla needs to have this hosted by a You Tube or someone.

wbrown01 | June 22, 2012

Is it over, is it still showing?

Teslamodels4me | June 22, 2012

Saw it all worked great for me.

JerryT | June 22, 2012

Worked great. iPad to AppleTv to 55" Sammy.

Volker.Berlin | June 22, 2012

wbrown01, the live stream started on 3:25 p.m. PDT(!). It was a little more than half an hour, it's over now.

wbrown01 | June 22, 2012

Thanks, this sucks. I stayed home from work to watch this

jeff | June 22, 2012

Fire whoever is in charge of the site. Seriously, no excuse. Probably cost tsla 100M in market cap today by feeding the idea you guys can't deliver. I'm a reservation holder. I love tesla. Incredibly upset and disappointed you can't stream a video. Fire the idiot.

jbunn | June 22, 2012

Congratulations to the IT team on this webcast. Unlike the others which were disasters, it was rock solid, and looked great.

ggr | June 22, 2012

Wherever the problems you had might have been, I don't think it was Tesla's fault. I watched it from a hotel room with a mifi, and it was just fine.

Brian H | June 22, 2012

No problem here; site was open onscreen early, and the music started at 3:30 PDT on the dot. And the rest was fine, with occasional slight buffer twitches, nothing serious.

Liz G | June 22, 2012

Issue wasn't Tesla.

We streamed it via my husbands Droid to our TV.

Grainy but great!!!!

DallasTxModelS | June 22, 2012

I was only able to see begins at 3:30PDT for 1:00 and a black screen with no sound.

At 4:30PDT it loaded the live stream which said the Live Stream is now over check back for a recording.

Didn't see or hear a thing.

Brant | June 22, 2012

Watched from start to finish on my iMAC
No problem

Mark Z | June 22, 2012

The live video feed worked fine on both an iPad and the iMac. The iMac started automatically with the Adobe Flash. The iPad feed was delayed, so I did exit and reenter to attempt to sync live. The iPad was still about 10 to 20 seconds behind the iMac feed.

I would expect that Tesla will post the video as they have done in the past. Having Governor Brown visit the factory building made for an entertaining event. George Blankenship did a enthusiastic job of hosting the delivery.

All the best to Tesla and those who get their test drives in the next month. Looking forward to visiting Fashion Island when they are able to offer a Model S test drive.

stephen.kamichik | June 22, 2012

Worked for me in the north country (Canada).

stuberman | June 22, 2012

It worked fine for me using an iMac with Comcast internet over cable service to a wired ethernet network.

stevenmaifert | June 22, 2012

Brought up the page about an hour before the live stream. The player loaded and then just sat there until the streaming began. No problems viewing the whole event. BTW, a Red Sig being delivered to Palo Alto, CA had the front license plate holder installed. It was on the nose cone and didn't look too bad at all.

kevjo | June 22, 2012

I had no problem viewing the web cast, pixilated but viewable.

Mark E | June 22, 2012

Worked perfectly in my iPad in Sydney Australia

cosmomusic | June 22, 2012

Worked well for me in office on PC in California.

DallasTxModelS | June 22, 2012

Steven thanks for mentioning the license plate now I really want to see it. Living in Texas mine will ha e a front plate as well. I noticed when they delivered the founders cars no front plates were there. I was expecting them to be there because he works and I assumed lives in California.

jbherman | June 22, 2012

It worked fine for me on my Mac and iPad. I think those that had problems need to look inward!

BYT | June 22, 2012

No problems here, regret not taking screen shots of the front plate on the Sig Red behind George however!

dborn | June 22, 2012

Worked fine on my iMac in Sydney Australia - hard wired network to Internet. Good quality too.

pbrulott | June 22, 2012

Worked perfect from Canada somewhere up north in the country over wifi... sound was low though but picture was good. Had a good time showing it to my kids and wife.

jerry3 | June 22, 2012

Worked fine for me too.

GoTeslaChicago | June 22, 2012

Worked for me on my Mac, but not on my iphone

skkhow | June 22, 2012

Do they have a video uploaded? I want to see the replay

EcLectric | June 22, 2012

Worked for me this time IE7
I want to see the replay

GeorgeA | June 22, 2012

When will the video replay of the live event be available on Telsa website? I recommend this link should be posted on Telsa's home page not buried somewhere in the website since this is a great PR marketing tool for Telsa. Pls post video ASAP, S Model owners / prospective buyers that missed watching this want to view live event. Thanks.

Brian H | June 22, 2012

At the moment, page sez it will be available 'soon'.

Here are a couple of scaps showing the red Sig with front plate holder:

Brian H | June 22, 2012

Sorry, those were supposed to be live thumbnails. Here are a larger versions:

GeorgeA | June 22, 2012

Nice. Thanks for the posting these photos.

NielsChr | June 22, 2012

Worked well here in Denmark, watched from Windows 7. ie 9 connected via a 10/1 adsl.

Brian H | June 22, 2012

And here are the best cropped blowups of the nose I can get:

Volker.Berlin | June 23, 2012

[...] regret not taking screen shots of the front plate on the Sig Red behind George however! (BYT)

Should be no problem, the recording should be up soon! :-)

Volker.Berlin | June 23, 2012

Brian H, nice shots! I missed that there was a second page in this thread when I posted my comment above.

The license plate holder itself, well, it's a license place holder tucked onto the Model S front bumper. What did we expect? ;-)

(Yes, it *is* ugly.)

Mike_ModelS_P457 | June 23, 2012

Worked for me on a gen 1 iPad using 3G...

You may want to check for an error between the keyboard and chair if if didn't work for you.

Ferro | June 23, 2012

For those who missed it, you can already see the complete video here:

Laryrob | June 23, 2012

i agree re feeds-if they can produce a car this god why cant they communicate as well as my 5yr old?

Volker.Berlin | June 23, 2012

I did not miss it, but I used the opportunity to re-view it on autobloggreen. Here is what I saw (though not 100% sure in every aspect):

exterior / rims / interior / roof / spoiler

black / dark 21" / black / pano / yes

white / light 21" / black / pano / yes

red / dark 21" / black / pano / yes

red / dark 21" / white / pano / yes

red / light 19"(!) / white / body color(!) / yes

black / dark 21" / black / pano / yes

red / dark 21" / white / pano / no

red / dark 21" / black / pano / no

blurry_eyed | June 23, 2012

If you go here:

and go to photos 4 and 5, there are great shots of the Signature Red car with Carbon Grey wheels and photo 5 has a great shot of the front license plate.

DallasTxModelS | June 23, 2012
Volker.Berlin | June 23, 2012

Unfortunately Katie cannot count. Electric car maker Tesla Motors officially handed off the first eight cars, not ten... ;-) But the pictures are worthwhile!

DallasTxModelS | June 23, 2012

Maybe they are including the two already given out

Saxena | June 23, 2012

Thanks DallasTXModelS for sharing the link to the launch video!

Saxena | June 23, 2012

I mean thanks for the photos DallasTXModelS and thanks to blurry_eyed for the video link :-)

digitaltim | June 23, 2012

I am torn now between the silver and dark 21" wheels...decisions, decisions...

EdG | June 23, 2012

Anyone else notice what happened when the first two drivers tried to get into their cars? The went to the driver's side and tried to open the door to get in, but there was a delay. Apparently the door handles didn't extend quickly enough for them to open the door as soon as they got to the car...

Hopefully this will be modified right soon. If the timing is there for good reason, perhaps when the car thinks a driver is approaching the car the handle can start to extend and, when the driver touches the handle coming out, the door could pop open.

Not sure if this can reliably be applied to the other 3 doors. Or do all handles come out at unlocking?
