How to Have a Chris Pirillo Live Gadget on your Windows Desktop

We’ve uploaded several awesome screencasts lately. All of you are sending in informative and high-quality tutorials for us to share with the world. It’s not too late for you to get your screencast on our channels, you know! Get busy and create something wonderful! Gabriel is a fan of our live stream, and has come up with a simple tutorial to show you how to add a gadget on your desktop to make tuning in to my stream even easier!

With just a few clicks, you’ll have a widget right on your desktop for our live stream. It even has a volume control, so that you can mute me whenever you’re busy working on other things. Why anyone would want to mute me, I have no clue! But there ya go. You have that option.

Just head over to my gallery page, and click on the “Download” button over on the right. Now click “Install”, and then choose “Open With Windows Desktop Gadgets”.

That’s all you have to do in order to have a widget right on your desktop that streams my live feed. You no longer have to visit my site, or my Ustream page! Drag the window wherever you want it on your desktop, and resize it to fit your needs. You can even close it whenever you want. Re-open it by right-clicking on your desktop and then clicking “gadgets”.

  2. You know, Chris Pirillo use to interact with chat room way back when he first started. thanks for sharing though 🙂

  3. I just installed the gadget, but all it is for me is a black box. No stream, no sound, no chat, etc. I’m going to try restarting my computer just for good measure, since Windows likes to be restarted, but if anyone can shed some more light on this problem it’d make me happy. I’ll also post this on the page for the gadget itself. Thanks

  4. Hey,

    Thank Chris for making a post on my gadget. It is my fault the chat didn’t load. I forgot to upload the fix after the chat switched over from wyldride to geekshed. Also, the video got broken cause ustream changed some things that caused the video to not be there and I uploaded a fix early this morning. It has now been accepted by Microsoft and you can download it from
