Everyone's video in the KATG chat
 
I added a video feature to the Chat Room - Keith and The Girl page.

To add your video:
1) Create a ustream account
2) Go through the process to Broadcast Now
3) make sure you click Start Broadcasting when you're on ustream
4) Copy the url of the page you broadcast from. Mine looks like http://www.ustream.tv/broadcaster/4929497
5) Go to Chat Room - Keith and The Girl
6) right click your own name
7) click "Save you webcam broadcast url"
8) paste that into the textbox and hit save

Now when you broadcast on ustream everyone in the chat can see you.

To see someone who's got their cam on:
1) right click their name
2) click "View webcam"

To stop seeing them
1) right click their name
2) click "View webcam"


Changes I'm planning on making
Right clicking to get the controls seems like a pain. I think I'm going to make a dropdown list of everyone who's in the chat with a webcam. You'll then be able to select their name and add them from there.

To remove someone you'll do it through the same dropdown.

To add your broadcast code I'm going to make a link in the gray bar for that.

Remove the katg video streams when they're not broadcasting.

What other changes would you like to see?

Oh Michael... this is simply wonderful... Is there any amount of cameras that can be loaded?


Seriously man, aces.

MichaelApproved 07-11-2010 02:38 PM

You can load all the cameras you like. The only limit is your screen size.

so, we're broadcasting through ustream. Does that mean while I'm chitty chat chatting in /chat there'll be a passle of ustream strangers watching via ustream.com? and will we have to deal with ustream mods and other assorted nerd assholes?

Yes. This isn't much different than being on live video where can see you there too.

There is the chance that you'll have to deal with the mods but the way the system is built you can use a different account if you get banned with one. If we find that ustream isn't friendly to katg chat room then I can implement another stream service. Now that the basic system is built it'll be easier to add other services.

brilliant idea.

Thanks, Michael!

Thank you so much, Michael. I've hated having to use LiveVideo to chat with all my KATG-based friends. This is a bright day in a lot of lonely nerds' lives. :D

I'm not sure if it explains this anywhere.. Is there an age limit? I wouldn't really mind coming to chill now and then, but I don't really want it to be awkward..

Soo, maybe there's some kinda written/unwritten code on this I need to be aware of? Thanks for bearing with my ignorance :)
