We'd like to make a 24-7 transmission TV stream! The stream can include:
- 1. a playlist of material produced by T participants.
- 2. live broadcasts.
Here are some notes on how we will do this:
automatic playlist generation
here we document how we make an automatically updating playlist of tx material
- get all transmission material and download it onto a server somewhere. solution: use Miro?
- autogenerating a playlist from the contents of this folder: how?
stream from the 'playlist' folder to the streaming server
here we document how we send the archive stream to the streaming server
- use VLC?
here we document how people can make a live stream, in general but also for the txtv
- hardware setup
- software setup
here we document the streaming server possibilities and our setup
publicize the stream
here we document how people can actually watch the stream in the easiest way possible
- http viewable?
- viewer needs download software to view? VLC? explicit directions for how to watch
