Streaming Update

While suffering from COVID, we here at Brickmuppet Blog endured some power failures, internet connectivity issues, and what I assume was a drop bear infestation. However, Wednesday, both power and internet were working and I did a short, unscripted test stream. 

There is still an awful lot of scuff, particularly audio issues at the beginning, and the stream was completely unscripted (being just a test) but this was the first stream where stuff mostly worked.

Heh, "Mostly"
He still can't get his PNG to work right, Steam is not linking up to his Twitch, at all, he hasn't received his HDMI capture equipment yet and there is a reverb in his headphones that causes him to sound like a drunk cretin at points. 


Despite that, I finally got my streaming software (OBS) to work with my Mac to the point that I could do a 'Just Chatting' stream. One of my plans for the channel is to at least once a week do some silent movies, 'cause if it's pre-1928, it's usually DMCA free. (There are exceptions but those are fairly easy to find). There is a big enough backlog of decent silents to last at least two years. 

I had 5 people in chat at one point, at least one of whom was not a bot. 

"It's a small victory, but I'll take it."

Actual premier with Obligatory Power-Point is set for June 11. If the vidya gaming setup still isn't working by then we'll do a just chatting/movie stream anyway.

1 At this point I'm pretty sure that you're recovering and your foremost concern is to get enough oxygen and keep moving so that you don't get hit with a clot or other secondary from 'Rona.

Thanks for the observation, I really appreciate the input.

3 When I first tried to load that, the audio levels were virtually nil. Hopefully you got past that.
First time I've ever heard your voice too.
