My 24/7 stream never stops

Posted by Celshaded - 7 days ago


My Kerslash radio stream is actually 24/7 now, so you can show your support without spending any money by just listening to this instead of some other anime study girl's stream.


Also, I pop in and out the chat so if you're talking in there I'll most likely respond.


This is still a new and experimental thing for me so I'll be updating it and testing out things as time goes on. I hope you guys enjoy!

This is pretty cool... curious how you run this technically. Home server? Some kind of stream hosting service? Is everything programmed in beforehand, one long playlist, or is part of it manual?

Kind of yes to everything. It's hosted on a private server. Seemly simple but was a pain to set up.

Nice. I'm supercurious about technical specs, software, hardware, but guess that might be confidential, can't make it too easy to replicate maybe? :) Really cool to have stuff like this around though. Reminds me of the old Radio Ground days here. I haven't tuned into a no-compromise 24/7 since...

It's basically the same setup as doing a normal stream, and it's easier to do if you just want to do a stream that's not 24/7. It's just a looping video/gif on top of a looping playlist. Most of the technical is messing with OBS and fail safing everything so that it can just run without needing to be monitored.

Ah alright, OBS, good to know. How do you build a failsafe for something like that? If the stream goes offline entirely I guess there's no need but: in case some other software takes priority? In case the video/gif window closes, stuff like that...?

A lot f the failsafing is making sure the stream stays optimal and the video is consistent and stuff. Mostly seting it up to avoid software related interruptions. That and transferring the software I need to the server is where lot of my time went...well and animating that loop of Paige...

Ah quality/bandwidth stuff too. Good to know. Solid work on that loop too.
