  1. You can get your Impressions de France fix over on subsonicradio.com! I think it can be requested in the Requests and Background streams.
  2. I saw an article that France would be getting a Beauty and the Beast show sharing the same space with Impressions de France but the movie would still be there along with the new show. I kinda like that movie, mostly the music, but it is pretty dated in some spots. There has been some mention of an update in 2020.
  3. I touched on getting rid of the chat option, either entirely or in the live view and setting a title in my attempt at instructions. Post a while back. Streamlabs Setup - Android Probably not the easiest to find though.
  4. I'd be surprised if Win Mobile is available for that phone though I haven't looked into it at all. Various versions of Android can probably be had but it's a bit convoluted to put them on there. In addition, if YouTube recognizes the device as a "mobile device" the subscriber requirement will be applied. The OS running doesn't matter. My GoPro, for example, is recognized as a mobile device and so, no live stream.
  5. Two ways, one is to go to the Live Dashboard for the channel and set it there: https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard Or in the StreamLabs app: 6) Set a title and stream description. After streaming starts, select the 3-dot menu (upper right). Start a stream. Upper right of the screen, three dots (on android). On the Bottom, "Edit Stream info". There is Title and Description there and a selection of who can watch.
  6. I thought I'd toss out a few notes about using the Streamlabs App on my recent trip. I did only a resort stream, no park streaming. Unfortunately, after a day or so, I switched to the CamOn Live app. Streamlabs did preform well overall after tuning back some settings. I settled on 720p, 24fps, 2500kbps bit rate. Max fps it could sustain was around 14 much of the time. I would chalk this up to WiFi congestion at the resort and it did seem to get better as folks came and went. During the day, for example, when more folks were at the parks, it seemed to do better. This a from a very passive observation! I switch to the CamOn app due to Streamlabs having issues focusing (through a window, especially at night) and showing a frequent and regular fuzziness. I might attribute this to the phone I was using, a Motorola Droid Turbo. Motorola phones have, occasionally, had issues with apps and how their cameras operate. I think this may be the issue with Streamlabs. The phone is also an older one now which may also contribute. I have an even older Motorola that Streamlabs immediately crashes on. Newer phones with newer OS levels may fair better I suppose.
  7. Trip experience with this cam was good! Actually, better behaved that my phone which I used. I has a wide view and looked pretty good! (Used the first night from Bay Lake.)
  8. As I understand it, the persistent option is the main option for a channel. If it is not selectable I not sure how to reset it.
  9. Added the above suggestions for Streamlabs video quality settings to the PDF setup doc. May help avoid buffering and dropped sessions. Streamlabs Setup - Android
  10. Added suggestions for Streamlabs video quality settings. May help avoid buffering and dropped sessions.
  11. Nice! A very helpful chart! I have tended to the 720p at 1500 Mbps for resort streams. For me that has tended to be more reliable. Beyond that and the connection may last for a time but drops off. I also shoot for 24 fps but often get around 15fps.
  12. Saw NH having issues sending a live stream. Some general ideas to help combat the low bandwidth messages in SL, or any other app. Under Settings/Broadcast: reduce video resolution. I think SL starts at 1080. 720 is half that but half the data. Lower still could help but the video quality will suffer the lower you go. Frame Rate: 30 or 24 fps. 15 is usable...mostly. Max video bit rate: SL Starts at 3500 I think. 2500 might help. Lower might help more at the cost of quality. The more people around the less data per person will be available. SL seems to be less forgiving. My guess is that the YouTube app and Facebook adjust themselves on the fly while SL doesn't seem to do that. There is an Audio setting. Reducing this could help but has less of an impact. A sample rate of 22050 is half the default. Turning off Record stereo might help. There is also a "Mixer ingest" option. It lists places, I think, the video is going to be sent on to. A closer location might help. In WDW, maybe Dallas or Washington DC could help.
  13. New update. Added a note on adding the viewer count widget. Step 9.
  14. On the down side, the camera has not microphone so, no sound. Not enough room in the case to fit one either! But it does seem to do a reasonable job streaming. I even ran it off a USB battery pack over night and still had capacity to go all day. Makes it very portable.
