DGBS Weekends 7/14-7/15/12

Hey folks... Sorry about the delay in updates, but I've spent most of my free time recently wrangling a crashed system, which wiped out almost all of my installed programs (including the ones I use to convert/encode and upload my files)

But, I had some stuff I had uploaded last week before the crash - it's not a full schedule, but there's a decent chunk of new stuff. Of note, we have a newer film (something I don't normally feature on DGBS) called Iron Sky... Then following that we have a Black Scorpion triple feature. I'll try to see if I can get things back up and running by next weekend, but I'll have to play it by ear. Enjoy!

Nice selection! Hey could you possibly advise someone how to set up a stream? BmovieDrivein has been AWOL for a while but someone on their forum talked about possibly setting up a backup. I posted your blog on this forum thread:

Well, I've been kind of doing most of this by the seat of my pants for the last couple of years. I use a company called MakeAVoice, and all I do is upload finished NSV files to them and they stream them, so it's not the usual way a Shoutcast stream is set up (i.e. you stream it yourself from your own computer)

The biggest hurdle for me was encoding the files to NSV format for streaming - Had to experiment with a few different ways until I eventually found a configuration that allowed for decent quality, but also didn't take forever to accomplish.

I can share a few links that helped me set things up.


First there's a link for a full Shoutcast Audio & Video streaming guide. It pretty much details how to start from square one, and gives instructions on how to use and configure the software. (A word of warning - I've found, as of late, that some of the links referred to in the guide are out of date and no longer work, so you may have to hunt down some of the encoders/codecs)


Also, there's a page I have bookmarked that gives configuration guidelines for the encoding software (how to tweak the various settings based upon the bitrate). Like I said I kind of played around with things until I found an acceptable balance of things, but this page gave me a starting point


And finally, this is another link that gives more advice on how to encode files and configure the software and start streaming. A lot of it is command line functions, so it may be a bit technical for some (I know that most of it goes over my head!)


Good luck!
