A lot of you use FMLE as a backup or means to provide a supplementary stream from your TriCaster. Some of you are still using Firewire or USB interfaces to get video into your backup encoder (if you're a road warrior, most likely a laptop). If you have a Mac, here's a better way in this video (http://youtu.be/dPf_We3nHM4).

Cool info Colin!
PS The link to video part 3 does not work.

Question, does Skype recognize it?

Thanks Jose. I'll see about fixing the link later. Part 3 is the most useful if you've already figured out where the device doesn't work. Not sure about Skype.... I've stayed away from Skype because there are better ways to get bidirectional video that are more reliable.

Can't disagree about Skype but it is still the most popular format I am asked to use. If you can test it, it would be much appreciated :)
While you are at it, does it work with Facetime?

Yeah, I encourage my clients to use something better. That way you don't get a "why did that suck" discussion after the fact. Facetime? I would imagine so, but we'll see.
