Best Way to Stream my Wedding online?

Posted Apr 02, 2012 at 4:15 pm in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

OK guys, I’m getting married on 4/20 at my city’s rose garden. Assuming the weather is nice the ceremony will be outside. I know they have wi-fi in the building but don’t know how far it will reach.

I unfortunately do not have an LTE/4G device nor does my area have it yet (which is honestly ridiculous after looking at some of the cities that have it). I know I will be limited by 3G bandwidth if the wi-fi signal does not reach out by the gazebo.

So, what are y’alls recommendations for apps to do this? Or am I completely missing a better idea? I used to use ustream and Qik but I haven’t broadcasted in so long I don’t know if there’s anything better out there. There probably won’t be a lot of people watching (mainly my woman’s sister since she won’t be able to make it and she will be on a cell phone most likely) so a Google Hangout is a possibility, but again, I haven’t even used that on a mobile device.

So to summarize: I may or may not be limited by 3G depending on if wi-fi will reach outside (if it’s raining it will be indoors and probably not a problem) since there are no 4G/LTE towers in my area. I will only have a handful of viewers if not just one. We only have one major ISP in town (of a city of about 100,000) and I know for a fact they keep the uplink bandwidth LOCKED DOWN, so 3G might not be that much worse than wi-fi.
