Love Frustration

The estimated reading time for this post is 1 minutes

Without frustration, there would be little value in celebration. What I thought would be a simple setup turned out to be quite complex, and extremely frustrating. Because we have vowed to improve the quality of the Team 21C Live show each week, I was determined to do my part in making that happen.

The Question:

Why won’t Wirecast recognize this JVC video camera?

Thoughts of frustration:

  • Apparently the camera is too sophisticated, which is stupid.
  • Why on earth is Wirecast not recognizing this freaking camera?
  • Why don’t things just work?
  • I’m glad I wasted an hour of my day on something that didn’t work.
  • I’ve tried every possible setting! This is ridiculous!
  • I give up.

Thoughts that started to lead me in the right direction:

  • What piece am I missing?
  • How many different wrong attempts can I try?
  • There has to be a setting on the camera I’m not aware of.
  • Are there any online visuals of a successful camera setup with Wirecast?
  • How can I refine my online search for answers?
  • Why not look where I should have looked in the first place, the Wirecast forums?

This is what I found after 9:00 p.m., which I believe is THE SOLUTION!

Thank you Wirecast forums for this pic:

Without frustration, I would have not found the solution.

    My favorite line: “How many different wrong attempts can I try?” Such a great way to reframe.
