    Default Eyes on Streams

    Have you heard of Twitch.tv? It's a place people play games while streaming video and commentary. It's a nice way to interact.

    Recently we added a Twitch Username field to everyone's user profiles on the forum. If you have a Twitch account, fill it in there. Once you have, your account will appear on our shiny new Eyes on Streams page. (Name and URL subject to change.)

    Eyes on Streams

    When you're live, a preview of your video and some statistics will show up on that page. When you're bored on the forums, you can check that page out and see if any other EoFFers are currently streaming. More features will follow in the coming weeks once we finish up our impending server move.

    I'm going to be streaming some games later tonight. Probably Spelunky. Come watch! Hit the Follow button on Twitch if you haven't already, if you'd like to be notified by email when the people you've followed are going live.

    QUESTION: Do you stream on Twitch? What game(s)? What features would you like to see on EoFF to help you connect with EoFFers on Twitch?

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, you should link back to EoFF from your Twitch pages. Throw us a bone.

    I haven't played in awhile, but last time I did I was doing a new game (normal) of Chrono Trigger. I also played through a good chunk of EarthBound, as well. I will also randomly stream whatever here and there.

    I really should stream again soon. I added my twitch name to my profile for the record.

    I sometimes stream on my guilds channel while I lead In World vs World in GW2.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I love the way a preview pops up when someone is live. This is a super neat idea and I hope we get lots of people streaming!

    I sometimes stream Hearthstone and Legend of Mana, but it's not a regular fixture.

    Also, if you're in the chatroom, Aexoden's !stream trigger will also list people who are streaming that he has added to his script.

    And then there is Death

    I am about to stream Mario 64 with no mic or camera because I am in an inopportune location with my laptop to do so. However, when I get home later, I might play with some stuff like that on. Basically, I haven't really used the 64 emulator too much before, so I am testing it out for a bit. Come and watch if you like!

    I won't link because I want people to use Unne's page he set up!

    EDIT: For some reason, it won't let me broadcast even though I get a connection. It always shows me as offline. Gonna try to hash this out.

    EDIT 2: Yeah, I have no idea why it doesn't want to work. I guess I'll try a different day!

    I like that you already added me without having to say anything about it. Yay! I suppose I could update my channel data once in a while. :3

    I streamed Morrowind for a few hours the other day. Much to my surprise there were people who showed up to watch-- not even people I know-- and they were really excited that SOMEONE was streaming Morrowind.

    Gonna do it again next time I'm not working all day

    Twitch rolled out a new backend for their video system last week. One side effect is a 30-60 second lag, so when you start your broadcast, video might not show up on Twitch for 60 seconds. So maybe wait for a little while after you start broadcasting and see if it shows up.

    Twitch is working on fixing this, which I hope they do because it makes it very hard to talk to your chat when they're 60 seconds behind you.

    I'm starting to mass-favorite EoFFers on Twitch, so maybe I'll catch one of you streaming one day.

    Oh, okay. The thing that made me think there was an error was because I saw my own feed attempt to load, then it went back to saying it was offline. Next time I'll wait a bit and see what happens, but I probably won't be able to try again in a few days.

    Another thing is I think Twitch's new system requires CBR. They've been recommending CBR since September, but I think it's mandatory now. If you're using VBR, I have no idea what it'll do.
