Hi everyone! I’ve recently started streaming on twitch whenever I work on open source. Wanted to mention it in case anyone is interested. https://go.twitch.tv/blatyo
I generally stream around 6:30 PM EST during the work week. I’m not sure exactly what my schedule will be, but I’ve been posting it each day so people who are interested can try to fit it in.
Recently I’ve been working on an SQS adapter for a message queue framework I wrote. Tonight I’ll be doing some work with the SQS API to fetch messages and probably some work with GenStage. There’s a video from last night up as well, where I worked on a supervision hierarchy, a GenStage producer, and unit tests for both.
I personally don’t think of youtube as a streaming platform. If I wanted to find a streamer, I’d look on twitch. As far as archives, twitch will keep previous broadcasts for a short period of time (as long as you enable it). You can export to YouTube to keep it permanently, which is what I do.
Really? I use youtube for streaming, it is significantly more reliable than twitch for me (I use linux for note). Plus it has conversations, moderating, various other features like voting and such as well. Youtube is a powerful streaming platform. And you can of course optionally store them or make them public or whatever else as well.
All the people I know who stream use twitch. I’m sure YouTube works fine for streaming, I’ve just never gone there to look for an active stream; just archives. I’ve not had a problem with using twitch, but I’ve only been using it this week and I’m on OS X. Twitch has most of the features you mention except voting, but I think it’s common to use a bot to give a lot more functionality in chat. I haven’t really needed anything beyond the basics so far.
That’s good I’d definitely recommend them being archived as it would seem a waste if they are streamed just once.
Also agree with ODL about YouTube - the streams I’ve seen on there have always been excellent, one of the big ones I saw on Twitch was the Sony/Playstation one I think, and it was good too. I’m sure either is fine so long as they end up persisted somewhere
You can set your streams to automatically be stored for 14 days (60 if you have Twitch Prime) under your settings in your dashboard: https://www.twitch.tv/broadcast/dashboard/settings (scroll down to stream preferences). You can also connect your account to youtube and export from Twitch as well
