I note on page 4 of this issue that you have re-printed a post I made on the BATC forum about the new BATC Web Site without asking for permission to do so and added an editorial comment which is in error and grossly misleading.
The new BATC site, contrary to your comments, can stream using either HTML5 or flash. The individual stream owner will have the choice of selecting Flash when they consider minimum time delay to be more critical, such as a repeater stream, than the ability to deliver a delayed HTML5 stream for easy viewing on mobile devices.
Also, it is not true to say Flash “is unusable on Apple and Android devices” as alternative browsers / viewers, such as Puffin or VLC, can be used on iOS devices to receive Flash streams such as the current BATC.TV channels.
Finally the new BATC site uses https, allowing flash to be enabled in browsers for the BATC site only, thus maintaining browser security.
Can you therefore either re-issue this edition or in the next issue, publish an apology for using the piece without permission and correct the technical inaccuracies so that your readers are not mislead as to the capabilities on the new BATC streamer.
And for the record, in the interest of "working together", we would have been pleased to give you a technically accurate description of the new site for publication – but you never asked....
