Seriously, if it is that bad shut up and dont watch it. Then wait for the magazine two months from now to see the pictures. Complainers.
There is a difference between being too critical of something you are getting for free, and complaining that you aren't even able to get that something you are supposed to be getting for free.
Complaining about camera quality on a free webcast is being a whiner, for sure. But if it constantly lags, drops audio, or doesn't work at all, I see no reason why someone shouldn't complain about that. Because at that point it's not a free service. It's free... but not a service.
One thing I suggest for those who are having connectivity problems is to make sure that all of your software is up to date and to see if eliminating other running programs increases your viewing quality. Always make sure it's not your gear that is failing before accusing their gear of failing. Outside of that: your connection is fast, your software is up to date, there are no conflicts... and it still won't load in a watchable manner; I say go ahead and complain. At the very least, it gives those producing the webcast an opportunity to fix it and helps them troubleshoot possible problems if it can be shown that the problem isn't on your end.
