    I think the multicoloured 2 minute warning clock with accompanying "muzac" is a generic YouTube thing that the originator of the video cannot alter. I find it annoying and it certainly does nothing for pre-service atmosphere.

    I think the same thing preceded the service from Scotland that I watched this morning, also on YouTube.

    I agree that it is rather irritating!

    The service proper began, rather more tunefully, with the Cathedral bells.
    :wink:

    There must be someway to alter it. We stream our services on YouTube, and pre-service we have a slideshow of scenes from around the church with text in the bottom right-hand corner: “The service will begin shortly: x:xx,” the “x:xx” being a countdown clock. Some Sundays the slideshow is without music, some Sundays the music has been organ music recorded by our organist.

    That was how this service began also. But then, when that countdown clock reached zero and the service actually began, the multi-colored, psychedelic clock was shown in the video feed.

    Maybe the clock appears on a "YouTube Premiere", but not on a genuine live stream?

    You've solved the mystery, @Darda. It was indeed a YouTube Premiere. I thought it looked a tad too slick to be a genuine live stream. Looking into the matter, I see that the psychedelic countdown is a "feature" of YouTube Premiere. If I play the saved video again, the countdown is not there.
  • Of course, one can always mute the countdown muzak, and turn up the sound when the service begins...
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth 8th Day Host, Mystery Worship Editor
    One may have to.
  • Or, depending on whether the plexi-glass screen is protecting the drum kit sufficiently, turn off, or lower, the sound for the service itself...
