Makes sense. The phone# thing didn't bug me too much, but I do hate the idea of losing my permissions due to a copyright offense. I've heard these decisions can be pretty unfair.

So: Does anyone know of a video site other than youtube that will accept hours-long video uploads from a new user? Youtube has their own stupid hoops to try to jump through so I'd really rather not (try but probably fail to) use them.

You might check out Vimeo, which has always treated me well. They have limits on the free account, but if I remember correctly, it's just a per-week upload cap.

I tried streaming today with Twitch. I will say that it was a much nicer experience getting set up there than with Youtube. I made a copy of my OBS profile, set the stream ID to Twitch and had it working in about 5 minutes. There is something of a feature maze in Youtube broadcasting where slightly different versions of the same feature (scheduled live event, live event right now, live event using Google hangouts) make it very easy to screw up. At least for me. So when I went to Twitch, it was just blessedly simple in comparison.

And even without optimizing my OBS settings for Twitch, the stream was noticeably higher quality. I don't know why.

However, when I exported from Twitch to Youtube, testing the idea of using Youtube to archive, I got a blurry mess. I can be cynical and guess that Twitch, having no incentive for its videos to look good on Youtube, just sabotaged the export in some way. But whatever the reason, it looks crappy. I think I would use a local recording uploaded from my computer to Youtube instead of trusting that Twitch-to-YT grinder.

Curious where your quest for an archiving solution takes you.

Well, even though I can't upload my own videos anymore (for reasons I still consider entirely dumb), it is technically possible to make an archive of any video twitch still has stored on their end. At least for now. Basically if you make a "highlight" of your stream that is literally the entire stream, it lets you save it forever! Which raises the question of why they delete streams in the first place when there's such an easy way to bypass it.

Well, if removing the upload feature means they're deleting all my old uploads I might give dumping my archive on vimeo a try, anyway. Thanks for the suggestion.

Small update/notice: At least for the moment, Twitch seems happy to let me keep my archive of uploads around (but just won't let me upload new videos). And I can archive any stream I just did by simply "highlighting" the entire stream and sticking it in the archive, which they seem happy to not make expire. The one real downside to this is that what I'm archiving is no longer what I recorded, but rather precisely whatever made it onto Twitch's servers. So if I have lag or a portion of the stream drops, that part will still be unavailable to see in this form. For now, I'll take this compromise over the massive pain that uploading aaaalllll the videos to some other site would be even if I found a really good one.

Additionally: I will stream today, and next Thursday, but then not next Saturday (the 20th) as I will be visiting home over Easter weekend.

I think I should mention: This week is final exams week. I'm planning to head home on Saturday, so no alphabet stream then; and Thursday (usual metroidvania stream time) is right on top of when I need to start grading my class's final. The sum total is I won't be streaming this week. Next week, I'll try and do Alphabet stream for sure; I'm thinking of changing which day metroidvania is on during the summer, though, and haven't really come to a decision on that yet.

Alright, I'm thinking of moving MM to Tuesday, same time of day as before though. I've put that time up for tomorrow on the first post tentatively. We'll see whether I have other obligations that prevent me, but it doesn't seem like I will at the moment.

Well, unexpected complication. Family wants to see a movie this Saturday, so perhaps I'll do an early "make-up" alphabet stream this Friday at the usual time. Well, if anyone shows up for it at least. This is now reflected on the first post.

Okay, so last Friday's provisionally rescheduled alphabet stream went pretty well. And for the rest of May, it seems like my family is going to typically want to do something together on Saturday. So I'm thinking maybe it'd be a good idea to shift alphabet stream to Friday for the rest of this month? It'll go back in June, most likely. If anyone has an opinion on the matter, let me know.

That would suit me, since your Saturday time overlaps with Alex's FF streams.

I've just now made the connection that I'll be doing something with family specifically this Friday afternoon, so I won't be able to stream then. I don't know of any reason why I couldn't make this Saturday, but will update if I discover one before then.
After that, the weekend of June 1 I'll be moving, and since Friday has worked pretty well the couple of weeks I did it I suspect I'll be able to just make it regularly on Friday throughout that month.

For the few who possibly care, there is as of now a good chance I'll need to call off this week's metroidvania stream as well, for car trouble reasons.

I'll be moving this Saturday, so it'll be much easier for me to pack Friday if I'm not also trying to stream. So--next AS will be Friday after next, barring any further complication. At least for the moment, Tuesday's stream this week is still planned to happen.

EDIT/UPDATE: A change of circumstances makes it most likely I will prefer to also omit next week's metroidvania stream. Should be back to regular after that.

Eeh. Nuntar is streaming LttP right now, I think I'd rather just wait and do Alphabet stream tomorrow rather than "compete" with that.

Well, I have to mow tomorrow, so the metroidvania stream could be anywhere from slightly to an hour late to start. Keep an eye on chat if you care, I suppose.

News:
I plan to go home for labor day weekend, which means I can't stream this Friday. So I'll plan on doing Alphabet stream #100 on the Friday after next, September 6, instead. Also, as I mentioned during last Friday's stream, I plan to start at 3 (1 hour later) as it works better with my overall schedule this semester.

Slightly belated news: I mentioned last Tuesday that I might not stream this Tuesday (i.e., tomorrow), but plans have changed somewhat, so I am in fact planning to do so. First post "next stream times" also reflects this.

Well, I'd planned on doing an alphabet stream today, but honestly, my seasonal allergies have gifted me with an eternal cough this entire week. I think it would be painful both to stream and to listen to today with all that coughing. I think I'll take today off on that and hopefully recover a bit over the weekend.

Sorry about this (and that this is such late notice, I've been indecisive up until this very moment).

Well, something has come up next Tuesday which I'd like to participate in, so I'm calling off metroidvania stream for that day. Also, I've corrected the dates in the first post for this moment, and (more importantly I think) adjusted the times to account for daylight savings.

So, my schedule for the next few weeks is a bit..uncertain.

I know for a fact that I won't be able to stream this week, as I'm going home for (American) Thanksgiving tomorrow morning. Next week, I think I should be able to do metroidvania stream no problem, but Alphabet stream is less certain--depends on what work schedule I get. If I can't do it at the regular time maybe I'll shift it to Saturday or something. The week after that, it's unlikely I'll be able to stream, but I'll try and keep you posted if that changes.

Then things should be...sort of back to normal for a bit? More than likely my stream schedule will have to completely change going into next year. Honestly, while I am enjoying the metroidvania streams and I really would like to at least play through AM2R, there is a certain series of RPG's I'd really like to feature in streams starting early next year, and I doubt I have the time in any given week to handle three streams. Obviously I want to keep alphabet stream as it's clearly the more popular one, so...we'll see, I guess.

Okay, so...my schedule the next couple of weeks is going to be a bit of a thing.

-I can't reasonably do alphabet stream this Friday, and I definitely can't stream the Friday after that. So that there isn't 4 straight weeks with no stream, I'd like to do it this Saturday at 2 PM (central).
-I could stream next Tuesday, but it'd have to be really short. I'd much rather do it Monday at the same time as usual, so that's where I'm moving it.

For the moment the first post reflects these decisions. If anybody usually watches one of the streams and can't with these adjusted times, let me know I suppose? I don't know that there's much I can do and still stream, but I'm still sort of interested to know.

Yet another update:
-I am traveling tomorrow, and might still be unpacking the day after. I've put that I'll try to do a stream on the latter (this Saturday) at 2 central, but I can't do that if I'm not sufficiently set up by then. I'll try to update with more info close to the proposed time.
-I'm planning to at least finish out AM2R in metroidvania streams. Since both Christmas Eve and new year's eve are Tuesdays, I'm just going to put that stream on Monday mornings instead, starting next Monday. First post also reflects this.

Well, okay. A Thing has come up, and I won't be able to stream tomorrow; thinking of making the next one next Friday at 2 PM central? Unless a bunch of people who want to watch tell me that Saturday actually works better for them. I'm less than certain about Monday at the moment as well. I'll try to keep this updated.

I'm tired of not being able to stream, so I'm gonna try and do AM2R tomorrow morning. However, I have an important call I'm expecting which may come before, during, or after that time for all I know, so...keep an eye on caravel chat if you're interested.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas day. I'm planning to stream tomorrow SATURDAY at 2 PM central, and hopefully of course that was won't be unexpectedly changed. This is also reflected in the first post.

As for metroidvania, well...we finished AM2R last time. Until the new year I'm definitely just doing alphabet stream. After the new year I'm thinking about filling that "time slot" with me playing a certain semi-obscure series of RPGs that I think should be entertaining or at least intriguing to watch. The game I'll be playing first is very closely tied to what year it will be then. So...I'll say more about this once I know more of my schedule in the coming year.

Sooo...
During the last alphabet stream, I said "maybe the Friday/Saturday after next, depending on my schedule." What I forgot about was the fact that AGDQ is happening this coming week, and I kind of wanna watch that. So, streaming is off for the coming week, after which...I'll try to have a meaningful schedule by then.

Alright, well, my schedule as of now has Friday open where I can do Alphabet stream early that afternoon as I have been, but I can't start doing that until Friday after next (the 24th) because I'm traveling this Friday; I'll mark that on the OP. But I don't have any mornings open Monday-Thursday, so if I want (and I do want) to do another stream it'll have to be afternoon or more likely night in Central time, like after I have supper. I'm shooting for maybe Tuesday nights, but I'm aware that the only like..three people who were ever interested in my non-alphabet streams may just plain be asleep at that time. I'll edit the OP anyway, but if anyone who was interested and can't watch that late into the night could post here to let me know..well, I don't know what I'll do about it, but that would be helpful.

The current afternoon stream time in the first post is 2:00 AM on EET. That is quite inconvenient. I can check out the VOD later, though.
