What made you want to start LifeCasting?
: I had no intention of starting a LifeCast.
I did not even know what a LifeCast was then, I joined the Stickam.com to do a tech cast where other hard core IT Security Tech types would come & get on mic/cam & talk about security things etc… but things did not turn out that way because of a lack of knowledgeable people my cast turned into a place where cool & fun people would come & talk about all kinds of things.

Is there a way I can watch the Stream from my Desktop & not have to use the Browser?
: Yes there is.
You can download one of two media players: VLC it’s available for Linux, Mac OS X & Windows or you can download MPlayer it’s available for Linux, Mac OS X &
MPlayer for Windows is called SMPlayer.
So CLICK HERE to download SMPlayer.
After installing one of the players, you go to open then URL and tpye in rtmp://livestream.e-tard.tv:1935/etard
The video quality can be improved by playing with the settings of both players.
Now for chatting, you would use one of the media player with MIRC or some kind of desktop IRC Chat app.

There is one more media player that can be used called XBMC.
Now with XBMC there is no way to chat when the app is open,
XBMC takes up the full screen,
maybe something more could be done with it but I need more time to play it.
CLICK HERE to download XBMC.
XBMC is available for Windows, Linux, Live UBS, OSX & OSXPPC as well as Apple TV
After installing XBMC you will need to go to notepad and paste in
rtmp://livestream.e-tard.tv:1935/etard playpath=etard app=/etard pageURL=http://e-tard.tv/ swfUrl=http://e-tard.tv/live_webcam_player.swf?streamer=rtmp://livestream.e-tard.tv:1935/live&file=etard live=true
After that you need to save the file as e-tard.tv_on_XBMC.strm then go into XBMC and browse for where you saved the file and your done.

You can download & install this App called StreamDesk & find my cast in a list of other casts as well.
Do Read Requirements for OS that you pick!
CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD StreamDesk FOR WINDOWs
CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD StreamDesk FOR LINUX
With this app the chat is apart of it so no need to use MIRC with it.

For Windows Users Only!
