Video Bat-Chat is back!

Post by Ben Bentley » Thu Mar 19, 2020 5:34 am

Scott and I are excited to announce the return of Video Bat-Chat!

https://youtu.be/K_Ifs5d1a3M

Join us won't you?! Keep an eye out for the URL to join in the call.

Sunday 22nd March - 2020

3PM EST / 12PM PST / 7PM GMT / 2AM AEDT (Sorry Australia! :( )



Some updated FAQs like we used to have back in the day...

What is "VBC"?
"VBC" stands for "Video Bat-Chat" - a group video call scheduled by Scott or Ben for a specific time/date here on the 1966 Batman Message Board.

How do I participate in VBC?
It's as simple as clicking the unique URL that either Scott or myself will be posting when the call commences.

Our new incarnation of Video Bat-Chat is built around the group-call functionality of Skype. If you are already a Skype user, the URL will launch your Skype app on either your computer or your cell phone.

You do not however have to be a Skype user nor do you have to install the Skype app if you don't wish. Clicking the link will open in a web browser window allow you to join the call and participate just the same.

Is there any cost to joining in on VBC?
There is zero cost involved.

Skype for personal use is free. You do not even have to register for a Skype account if you do not wish - Video Bat-Chat can be opened in a browser window via Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

Can I "VBC" at any time?
Unlike the previous Video Bat-Chat platform we used (OOVOO), this Skype based version is a "call" with a finite beginning and end, as opposed to the old virtual "room" that could be entered at any time. Think of this less as going to a bar to see who is around and more so heading to meet your pals for coffee at a specific time and place.

Any further questions or ideas as I mentioned in the announcement video above - fire away!

Great idea! I don't even think the Bat-computer was capable of this, so props to Skype. ;)

I'm actually working Sunday afternoon via Skype, so if I don't get to join in, hopefully I'll be able next time. I'll certainly watch it to get a feel for what is discussed.

Here's wishing you a great chat Sunday and much success with this going forward.

No worries at all! It'll be great to have you at during a future VBC!

Glad it went well!

Sounds like it went on for quite a while, too.

I would also be interested in checking it out if a video surfaces.
