So I saw some people complaining about music over the PA... I have a half decent & very fun solution smile.gif ?

How about a live broadcast of DJ'ing scheduled at specific parts of the LAN ? It could be fun and gives people a chance to request song's and all that kind of shiz, and the best part is it's totally optional and can easily run in the background while you're leeching instead of gaming.

I broadcast over vent & through other programs all the time, using programs & proper hardware, & I DJ for a living so am very keen to put this proposal to good use. Happy to bring in the equipment or just do it with the programs.

I was actually going to try it out this LAN (Hence why I was asking you those Q's Squid) but I couldn't figure out how to run two instances of Teamspeak or Mumble so was unsuccessful, but if I can figure out that hitch, it will be a sinch to broadcast through those 2 programs. Although, vent is much easier biggrin.gif

So advantages to this:

- Fun, listen to some good music or request your own.
- Optional music
- Properly mixed smile.gif
- Runs smoothly in the background and does not disturb other's who do not want music
- Easily request the track name and leech it off the DJ (If he's feeling generous rolleyes.gif )

What do you guys reckon ?

Your proposal has some merit, except for this one thing

Ha the word leech is cringe worthy indeed, but we all do a little bit of it when we LAN smile.gif

Yeah, we do.. but I managed to get my friends all into CoD4 comp this time! Although we didn't do too well, it made pretty much all of them say "f*** filesharing, next time I'm coming back for the comps!"
It was really good to hear, since I come mostly for the gaming anyway. It's just a shame that outside of the comps the game servers are pretty quiet..
I think i'm putting all of this in the wrong thread..
As for the music idea, although I usually have iTunes running for most of the time (excluding comp times) I still think that it could be fun for alot of people. I think even I would tune in, just to listen to some stuff that I don't usually hear. Requests could be a bit of a pain, but I guess, really, it's one place where you can easily get hold of a requested song if it isn't already in your playlist tongue.gif
I'm all for the idea! And saying that, I take back the smartarse comments about just quad-clicking TS for two instances tongue.gif

Stream would be the only viable option. Some people aren't going to like that type of music and not all headphones can cancel out loud music.

play games, not leech <3

I'm all for streaming DJ type stuff. How will you be taking requests though? Chat in teamspeak? I reckon IRC would be good for that too.

another idea is to have a few different streams of music running, for different genres... so a chillax-y one, rock, pop, trance/club whatever its called) and whatnot. then people could chose what they want to listen to over their headphones...

i dunno :S

Love it.
Requests could be made on the website (and tracks uploaded)
Respawn radio!

We could have a generic mix of music on the PA with requests from players, or a DJ type system, and vent/TS/VLC streaming.

This way they could be "gently" interrupted with announcements via the PA or respawn notifier.

Requests can be made just by DC++ or if TeamSpeak or Mumble have some type of chat system like Vent does, that can be used smile.gif

And Tank your idea is great too. Have different channels streaming different music & have a channel for me doing live mixing & taking requests smile.gif Although most people just have their own iTunes so unless they are looking to hear something different won't be much of a hit

The EMS used to actually have a PA music upload and queueing system. However, it ended very badly as a result of repeated "questionable" song choices and eventually when it broke they didn't bother fixing it.

I know. But net radio is an easy way to get a variety and suit the tastes of multiple people. With very minimal effort! \o/

Yeah....no

1. They're not terminated.
2. They're not active.
3. I wouldn't have the foggiest idea of where the cabling goes, or if it's even ADSL compatable. (at 5km from the exchange, I doubt it.)

But good idea none the less. smile.gif

--------------

A streaming net radio idea would be very interesting. We can integrate this into the notifier somehow, similar to the Internode Usage Meter program (or MuM), which has a selection of what type of music you wish to stream.
