If we're gonna do Crumplstock again we need a good streaming solution.
Before we used mixlr which most people got working easily enough.
We need something that's just as simple and straightforward (and free) so nobody is left out.
We used the mixlr app to connect to mixlr site then embedded the mixlr player on the crumplstock site.
MIXLR APP>>MIXLR SITE>>CRUMPLSTOCK
If we could get a simple streaming app we could cut out the middle-man and stream direct to and from this site.
Our main choices would be Icecast or OBS.
Audio only. It's been about for an age with many ways to get it running and loads of documentation.
Downsides are it's a bit techy and not newb friendly.
OBS: Video and audio. Used for most broadcasting just now, it's well supported and has a vibrant app community.
Downside is it does need configuring, especially for video, altho it does have a auto-config wizard.
We don't really need video too, it'll hog bandwidth on slow internet connections. I guess if you can't stream video you could turn the video bitrate down or something.
I 'm leaning towards OBS as our app, just for ease of use for DJs, but I reckon I could get either of those to work on the crumplserver.
Configuring them for multiple connections or switching between streams during crumplstock might be a hassle but I'll figure it out.
I'll keep looking into it.
Any thoughts drop them below.
