To watch The Vidiot Channel 24/7, I have uploaded my past Justin.TV videos to LiveStream. Crude, but damn effective. I won't be using LiveStream to actually do the live broadcasts, but instead as storage.
Yes. It's real.

Pax 2010 video
After finishing up the PAX video last month, I found myself in a creative stupor: Where the hell do I go from here?
The amount of feedback, from what was really my first real amateur attempt with anything utilizing video was awesome. I did do LiveStreaming a while ago on LiveStream.com, but I stopped after a combination of a lack of general interest and frustration over how LiveStream handled....everything.
The idea has always stuck with me though. Streaming and commenting on games. I'm sure such concepts for the rest of you, who joined up during the Endurance Run days with Persona 4 have an affinity with this idea. I'm not the only GB member who have taken up the idea recently. Ossi is kicking ass, and Ace829 streamed Sonic 4 from an Android phone.
Setting this up has been an infuriating process, that taught me a bunch but has equally annoyed me to no end. Problems with my Dazzle capture device regarding audio set me back a week, then add a couple days while I tried to understand how to set up audio with my computer headset. The end result is something that bothers me, whenever I talk into the microphone I hear myself, and the game audio, on a delay. It's kinda funny re-watching some of these videos and hearing myself messing up in mid-sentence because of this. I've gotten better, but it's very evident.
Even with streaming this, I was not satisfied.
I didn't like the concept of having a video feed perpetually down. I have no schedule when I decide to stream things, so why not have something playing when I'm away? So I wanted to set up a playlist.
Two weeks later....
Apparently Justin.TV had a playlist feature. Said feature has been removed. Why? Who knows, I personally don't care.
I just wanted it, and while were at it: Let me tell you something else when it comes to me personally, regarding most things in my life:
When I want something. I get what I want.
Or...well...I try my damnedest. The playlist runs off of VLC player, after executing two .bat files I made. If it's not running it's because of two things:
1) My computer is off.
I'll have it on for a few days and see where it goes. I usually am chatting with people in the ?super-secret-invite-only? GB chatroom. Not specifically anyone in the actual Justin.tv room. When I go on next time, I'll be sure to announce myself.
Stuff I wanna do:
- Play more good obscure games.
- Find a way to incorporate the chat transcripts into the pre-recorded videos.
- Maybe have someone else join me? Who knows. Getting that set up is something that sounds pretty daunting.
So I hope everyone enjoys it. I think it's time to go back to my regular scheduled blogging.
I am so tired of election commercials.
