It's been around for quite some time. Easy and works well. :)

#Peertube I am looking for an alternative for livestreaming video from a laptop to the Internet. I know I can do this with YT but can I do it with Peertube?

@Shelenn Ayres It has been a few months since I last looked but you should be able to do what I think you want with Nginx and the RTMP module. When I get a bit of time I will dig deeper and check to see exactly what is needed to pull it all together.

This would let you stream not only existing content, but also relay a live broadcast using something like OBS or one of the many other desktop choices. Things get a bit more complicated if you need authentication but still more than doable.

<edited to correct for RTMP module>

Hey @Troy Schultz as you may remember I am working on the virtual garden project to be livestreamed. Current plan is to install the client on a dedicated win10 laptop and stream it using the xbox app. (Alternatively, I wish there was a way to simply put a cam in the parcel scene then stream that cam but I don't know if anyone has done that - potentially something to develop for other projects.) For this project, the stream will only need to broadcast from 730 am to 730 pm eastern time. But it is important for it to be a live stream rather than a recording since the NPCs will randomly water, harvest, cook, etc. This combined with the plants of all types having a life span of 2-3 days will make the scene dynamic - this is intended. Visiting avatars may also appear in the scene anytime as well. There are items in the parcel that are for educational purposes so other avatar activity within the parcel is expected. I know I can setup a YT gaming channel and stream to that but I prefer to stream to a federated or open source solution if possible.

Out of the blue, I remembered BigBlueButton servers do this. I set-up an experimental BBB server once over a year ago, but turned it off. I found out about that system because they are heavily linked to the open source Moodle online college system. You can run a BBB server as a stand-alone. Depending on the server's set-up you can record the live stream. Because it's designed for MOOC/MOOT's having lots of viewers is a cinch. You can do interactive boardroom stuff with it too.

I've never looked for public servers, but there must be some. Or if you can find a friend at UCLA, you might get access to one. You can try it on the official BBB demo server, https://demo.bigbluebutton.org/, and they have tutorial videos about it too.

Crowdfunding


Where would I find someone to run a gofundme campaign on commission only or on a volunteer basis to raise monies for people in need of financial assistance?

From what I see, the average expert crowdfunding agency charges 1k-3.5k upfront plus 25-35% commission which is not affordable for people who find themselves in need due to circumstances beyond their control like cancer, debillitating disease, accident, layoff, business failures due to political tariffs, etc.

Any ideas? Let's crowdsource some knowledge folks! Possible crowdfund services might be gofundme or justgiving

I should say multiple campaigns since each case will be different. This could be an opportunity for commision only work for someone who works from home that would like to pay it forward yet still earn some income. The idea is to establish this as a service available to people who don't know how to run their own campaign, don't have the energy to do so, or have tried and failed.

You'd probably have to find someone willing to start such a foundation from scratch...

Existing structure exists for the business side of things. What is needed is a team of like-minded individuals who believe in the mission and are crowdfunding experts.

$18,000? How very small-minded, petty, and frankly stupid, of this woman. Hardly worth the risk. Then again, to have been a state official and refer to FLOTUS as an "ape in heels" already shows how small-minded, churlish and dull-witted she was.
