home and HD videos?

4 replies 333 views Edited Mar 10, 2007
Has anyone ever been able to stream HD video?? I for one know that just downloading HD video takes a loooot of time so streaming it would always be out of the question... How is it possible that on Home we are gonna get multiple HD videos streamign at the same time, plus voice chat/ people running around without lag, etc etc etc?? Isnt that kinda of impossible?

currently when you launch HD content such as Blu-ray movies it will kick you out of home as per the latest Dev FAQ

Im talking about the giant monitors like where they shows trailers for games and movies, Phil said those were HD and he never got kicked out of home, in fact all he did was changed it to first person view but he was always inside the lobby

I think to see what is really up we will have to wait till beta/openbeta before we truly understand. I tend to agree that would be very hard / next to impossible unless you are on a top tier ISP
I suspect he meant that home is a HD world and the screens are being displayed in HD not that the video stream itself is (unless it switchs to that as a screen filler if you click on the monitor ingame?)
