Twitch believes Carmack's voice is copyrighted content owned by a third party. They've silenced about 15 minutes of his talk.

    wtf????????????????
    Not an Oculus hater, but not a fan anymore.
    Still lots of respect for the team-Carmack, Abrash.
    Oculus is driven by big corporation principles now. That brings painful effects already, more to come in the future. This is not the Oculus I once cheered for.

    I believe it was muted automatically. They muted 30 minutes of the keynote beginning with the intermission between keynotes where music was playing. The muting then carried into 15 minutes of his speech.

    Still, I'm sure Oculus used music that is either public domain or licensed for their conference. Twitch really should flag videos for manual review and stop letting their broken software do this automatically. We're missing out on valuable information.

    You should be able to find the keynote on YouTube. Sorry.

    When I opened this thread, the first thing I thought was that it was about the black rectangle placed over him in the video preview frame as if he was doing something inappropriate on stage. :)

    Why are LCD / OLED / IPS screens even scanlined at all? This is an legacy of old CRT technology. AFAIK there is no need for this for modern displays, unless I'm mistaken.
