I have decided to put a small part of my current project live for people to use/see. Partly as I believe you will enjoy it and partly so that I can test its use and get it setup correctly.
I have created a database for holding livestream information. It then checks every 5mins if each stream is active or not. Another script checks every minute and updates the details of active streams. The webpage (below) lists all streams that are currently active in a table and gives you a 'Watch Now' link which will take you to another page and embed the video/chatbox. I hope this will be a convenient way for the community to find/watch live NS2 streams and help streamers get noticed.
Currently it only supports twitch.tv and justin.tv streams, but I will have own3d.tv working soon. There is now a form for users logged into duplexgaming, allowing you to add a stream by simply pasting the URL into the form.
If you use a streaming service not mentioned, let me know and I will add further services as time passes.
If you visit the page and it looks like all hell has broken loose or parts are not functioning properly, give me a kick here in this thread or on steam.
Notes: I would encourage you to speak up if you think the service can be improved or expanded in any way.
If you find a bug please let me know here. I will fix it asap.
You are helping to test and polish one small function of something much bigger and more exciting coming soon(ish).
Known Issues: own3d.tv streams not fully supported (coming soon). current viewer / max viewer stats on the embedded video page do not update after pageload.
