<p>I wish you guys would implement a streaming furniture. TV's seem a bit off due to the level of technology in EQII, medieval and all that. But what if we got a streaming device to put in our homes? Like a movie portal or something.Would be really nice to be able to show off your YouTube videos while inside your house.If it's too hard to maintain a good framerate or latency with many of them, just make them Lore items, or make them only able to display the movie one at a time.Would be a great way to show off your Everquest II videos in-game, or other videos you want to show around!Anyone like this suggestion? <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>It would take a lot to sell me on this idea as adding to the game.  OP, why exactly, other than the cool factor, would you want these streaming videos in game for again?  As it is, one can tab in an out of the game quickly to watch/read anything on the internet (or use the in-game browser).   From an IC/lore level (at this point), this level of technology doesn't really fit into the game either, which the OP is aware of.</p><p>Any further reason why you want to see this feature in-game?  Have you been playing that one MMO where you can watch youtube videos and shows with lots of other people online and just thought it was fun?  Explain further! </p>

<p>Streaming videos are possible in Planet Calypso, so yes, I have played MMORPGs that have this option, though they don't stream via YouTube but their own servers where players can upload their own content.And like I also stated in my OP, I said to not use a device like a TV, but a magic portal.There are already things like this in Odus, both in the observatories overland, and on Dartain's Bastion at the telescope point. They also do have an entire play made of holograms near the Deep Water Pavillon. So I think it would suit the game.Of course it also depends on what things the player put on youtube, but if they make guild recruitment videos, trailers or other EQ2 related videos it can enhance the quality and use of them a lot. I would love to see other people's videos in-game, just like I watch them on YouTube normally.</p>

<p>You want to log into the game and then watch TV on a "streaming furniture" in your guild hall or house? Do you not own a TV in your home?</p><p>No just please no.</p>

<p>NO +1</p><p>I am all for ingame books, they go with the feel of the game but streaming video? Just launch the ingame browser and watch youtube if you must.</p>

<p>As sluggish as the browser gets, and then the game itself sometimes, I can see this being a nightmare.  Not sure what point it would have anyway.  If I'm grinding crafting I go windowed mode and watch videos while I craft.  Works fine and no added browser/streaming feed lag.</p>

<p>The purpose? To show off your own videos.You can of course sit and spam the general chat about them too, but then it will become just that, spam.</p>
