Many people have asked me “where is the live webcam stream?”
Well I need a virtual private server = (VPS) or a dedicated server to host my lifecast on, now that is not cheep & kind of hard to find.
I have found one VPS provider but I have not tested them out yet. (there are many VPS & dedicated server providers out there, that are full of shit )
This VPS provider I have found has: Unmetered 1000 Mbps Connection & that’s what I need to make this lifecast happen.
Cost is $17.99 a month but if you pay for a year it’s only $179.99
So my plans are when I have the money to start my LifeCast back up, I will pay for a month, run some hardcore tests & if everything works out. I will pay for a full year
but if this provider ends up “looking to good to be true” then I will have to find some other VPS or dedicated server provider that will meet my needs & not cost a ton of money.
So far I have no reason to think this VPS provider is not going to work out. So now about the Live Stream: Before I was streaming with RTMP to Flash Player, well as many of you know Adobe Flash is dying off & HTML5 video tags as well as HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) are taking over in its place.
So I am thinking of moving away from RTMP & going with HLS but most server-side software cost money & the one I would go with is Evostream the price is $849.00 & it does so much (HLS), (MSS), (HDS), (RTMP), (RTSP), (MPEG-TS) but that’s money I don’t have.
So on my PC I will be running VLC as my Live Streaming Media Encoder & FFmpeg as the HLS media server. Now doing HLS this way is tricky to get working & I have only lightly played around with it, so there will be a learning curve when it comes to getting the stream working on all devices.
Here’s some bad news: It would seem crtmpserver project is dead so no more updates. I can go back to crtmpserver & hope the bugs I had to deal with before have been fixed, or I could use FFmpeg as an RTMP server.
No matter what server-side software I use when it comes to the PC side I’m done with “Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder 3.2” it’s VLC all the way for me.
So the live video stream aside my IRC chat server is kind of fucked up. The IRC services like NickServ are down & are not coming back until I move off this shitty IRCD & on to Inspircd.
Now the Chat Room works just some of the bells and whistles don’t work anymore & I have not had the time to move it over to Inspircd.
In some other news I am the owner of http://e-tard.net/ it will forward you to https://e-tard.tv I got the .net domain because some search engines only take .com .net .org TLD’s so having a .net helps & maybe some day I will get e-tard.com
Now when I get my lifecast back up I’m going to make a Facebook app that will have my Live video stream, Chat room, Twitter feed & RSS reader for my Blog posts & comments but to do this I have to buy a Wildcard SSL Certificate (Facebook policies ) that’s about $94.00 a year. Also I would like to make an “Android app” for my lifecast but I’m still working out the details & No, there will never be an iOS app because of Apple’s dumb rules & bull shit that get in the way, maybe in the future I will make an iOS app for Cydia but don’t hold your breath.
Also some users have asked me “why do you bold the font in your blog post?” I did it because I thought it would be easier to read but some users think it’s odd so no more full bold blog posts 😉
Now about the “money”, right now I don’t have any money to put into this & I barely have the $138 a year for the VPS my website is on & domains. Also I’m out of work at this point in time. 🙁
So the VPS provider did not work out 🙁
but I did find a dedicated server with a 1gbps unmetered internet connection.
Cost will be $108.90 a month, times that by a year = $1306.8 with that you can see why I’m pushing for more donations.
I have used this provider before so I know they are honest.
On a side note I have been working on what server side software I will be using to make the stream happen.
I will make a post on how to make your own live streaming server, so other people don’t have to deal finding all the right info.

Now some of you know that I almost died on January 2015
I ate some bad food that they make in this “grocery store” & I started barfing for 5 days & things went really bad after that.
I was in the ICU Isolation Room (isolation because they did not know what I had) for 4 days & a normal hospital room for 4 more days.
I was awake in the ICU but no one was home in the head, I was talking nonsense, moving my legs & arms around & I ripped out an IV (mind you don’t remember any of this) this went on for 4 days.
On the 4th day in the ICU around 4 pm I came out of it & I was like “where am I?” & “Can I get something to eat?” (mind you I haven’t eaten in 9 days)
What I had wrong with me: extreme dehydration, infectious colitis, c diff, sepsis, extremely low potassium!, partial liver failure, closet to full kidney failure
and I had fallen at home like 3 times & hit my head & knees, cut open my tongue on my teeth when I had fallen.
I had a team of 6 doctors who all told me “you should be dead” & that I’m lucky to be alive.
I’m ok now for the most part but even now they are still running tests.
I am in the middle of a lawsuit with the store, I can’t talk much about that but lets say I’m going to get something 💰 for almost dying.
Now I don’t know when I will see the “Money” from this lawsuit but it’s looking like some point in the end of this year, or the beginning of next year 😉
