Tried out our first gaming stream today!

It turned out very well!

You can check it out here on Twitch:

Watch live video from LittleGadget on www.twitch.tv

Or on our secondary YT Channel:

It took a lot of work to get the quality right. I played with my sister who lives a few towns over, so to have both of us playing the game and being on the stream it required a few things. Mainly, she needed to hear and see the game.

For video I shared using Skype, but for whatever reason there was awful connection noise coming from Skype (that wasn't necessarily her microphone, even when it was muted we could hear it). To counteract we pushed our audio using Discord, a really nice voice chat software I discovered recently. I'm curious about how this works and connecting with people, so I'm just going to share the link to our server here: https://discord.gg/011VHy5pRln6PAJ4M

To share the desktop audio with her I used Voicemeeter. This is made by the same people who made the VB Audio Cable I discussed in the last post. Its incredibly useful for things like this.

And of course we both were running some audio processing on our voices. I covered what's involved in that in the last post so there's no need covering it again.

So we had fun! And we'll definitely start doing this more often, probably next time on Monday when Overwatch is released. But for now I'm going to start looking into how I can start tweaking this site.

Shower thought: It'd be useful to have some kind of dynamic home page, so that if I start streaming I can make the home page show the stream live....
