I’m traveling in the US Midwest so I missed last week’s TechCrunch/August Capital Mobile Web Wars roundtable. I’d like to watch the video of the event at Ustream.tv but I’m sans laptop on this trip. An N95-3 is my computer. The Ustream video is Flash so S60Webkit and Mobitubia should be able to display it, but they can’t. It must be in some sort of wierd Flash variant. The Beta Skyfire browser actually starts to play the video but locks up about five minutes into the two hour video. And if your wondering about the Kyte stream mentioned on TechCrunch, it’s pretty useless, five minutes of what appears to be the middle of someones presentation.
Oh well, I guess I’ll have to wait until I get back to San Francisco. SMS Text News’ anonymous “Our Man in The Valley” wasn’t too impressed with Mobile Web Wars calling it “A bunch of dudes. and one woman, all talking about why their business model is the best“, so maybe I’m not missing much. But I am disappointed with TechCrunch for not offering the full video of this mobile themed event in a mobile friendly format like H263.
