Twin Galaxies Live showing accepted subs.

I just noticed Twin Galaxies Live has started showing recently accepted submissions. Very nice. :D

    @Jace Hall Quick suggestion just in case this hasn't been thought of: don't replay an entire vzaar video if its associated with different submission (like my Max Match subs which is currently playing - one video, many, many submissions)... you might end up replaying the same video on loop! :P

    [Edit:] Just to highlight it because its in my video: multiple Android footage could include a bunch of adverts ... not sure how you feel about re-advertising such content.

    Good thoughts I didn't consider the one video - many submissions angle. Perhaps they could just have something where if a particular vzaar asset id had been played it wouldn't be played again. May be easier than trying to draw information from the submission itself. Or TG could add fields to the submission form (yay) for start time and end time and moving forward there would be data to work with. I dunno. Either way I think it's very cool that they're playing submissions on the live stream.

    For now the implementation will need to remain pretty basic.

    The way it is working is that it will continuously show the last 72 hours of accepted submissions.

    So after 3 days, an accepted submission will no longer qualify for the broadcast.

    Depending on the length of the preceding videos, some videos may not ever make it to the live broadcast.

    For instance, if there was a single submission that was accepted that was a 72 hour marathon performance, that video would play through the 72 hours and any other accepted video that may have happened during that time would not be seen on the channel because when that 72 hour video is done, the program will observe that the dates of those videos are more than 72 hours in the past. So it would then just play all accepted videos that took place during the most recent 72 hours.

    I hope that made sense.
