Hi everyone at /int/! We, some guys from /b/, have set up a radio server for Ernst, it is called Radio Ernstiwan, the name being a pun derived from the popular "Radio Eriwan" (or Radio Yerevan for some). Now anybody can share his music, feelings or thoughts about the industrial output of the Ottoman empire during WW1 with his fellow Ernst brothers.

The address is: http://radio-ernstiwan.tk:8000

For listening just employ your favourite software which is able to play network streams and use the links in the upper right corner when a stream is on (pic 3 related, this is the "server status"-page when a streamer is active, otherwise it's empty). If you wanna start a stream yourself you will need a streaming software. I use "butt" (not kidding), which is a lightweight stream client without much configuration: https://sourceforge.net/projects/butt/. You'll also need an account. For testing purposes I created a test account which everyone may use (IP 194.5.250.49, Port 8000, mountpoint "stream", Icecast-User source, passwort teststroem), pic 4 related. Later, you'll need a personal account, and since there is no front end for this, you can just send me a mail at ernstiwan at protonmail.ch with the username you'd like to have, I will then generate an account for you. This is also the mail address to contact me outside of EC, in case you feel the need for it.

In case you are worrying about legal issues (which you should) and streaming copyrighted stuff: Our host (cryptoho.st) is known to be DCMA-friendly (which means they don't care about complaints), the physical server location is Romania, which is also known to be a safe haven for most stuff. Since it's the internet everyone should be aware that there is no 100% certainity, but we sure did everything we knew to set up this stuff in a way no one needs to worry.

Specs of the server:
Hoster: cryptoho.st, physical location: Romania
CentOS7, 1GB Ram, 20GB drive space, shared gigabit, unlimited traffic
7€/month, payment via bitcoin
Streaming software: Icecast 2.4

Sorry for crossposting, but in this case I hope it's justified. Have fun using the radio, and stream whatever you want, there are no restrictions whatsoever. Well, maybe calling for mass murder and the likes WOULD be restricted, but you know what I mean. Just make sure you don't hog up the stream when someone else also wants to use it - üarallel users are limited to 1 by server configuration. I will start a stream for testing purposes at 19:00GMT+2 (german time) or so, it will just be a music loop, so everyone can check whether he can connect to the radio. In case you have any questions: Feel free to ask, I'll help you out as good as I can.

HEIL EC!

Nice, I really hope this catches on and contributes to the overall lurking pleasure, especially since the folks here at /int/ are known for quality content, which is the perfect complement to the KC tier-style content (and by that I mean old KC) I will most likely end up creating. Note: Instead of the IP in pic 4 in the OP you can of course use radio-ernstiwan.tk instead.
>Maybe I'll start working on my playlist of central asian ethnic music
Looking forward to it, I hope lots of people engage in this project! For anyone who is wondering if he should be streaming something: If you find something interesting, chances are that everyone will, so share your passions and don't worry too much about whether others will like it or not. Important is that you like it.

By the way: If anybody wants to support Radio Ernstiwan: There is no need to support financially. The best ways to support are to keep your fingers crossed that our provider stays in business and doesn't plan to screw us over, and, of course, streaming and listening, for this is what the radio was created for! In the meantime I took the freedom to steal some of your delicious OC (as seen in >>27133) and transform it into a mushroom Lenin Radio Ernstiwan ad.

Probably you have to switch input in your streaming client from "Microphone" to "Stereomix". Your client also might pick the default from your operating system if there is no extra option for it. If you can't find an option like that in your client, you might want to check the settings of your sound driver (I can access this via right-click on the sound icon in my system tray. There should be an option for recording devices. If this is set to "Stereomix" as default, you should be fine.

That's the spirit. Make sure to announce it, so everyone can plan to tune in for it. I'll also plan to do a little program, as soon I have figured out how to stream both Stereomix and Microphone at once while not annoying myself with my own voice on my headphones. At the moment I can also do either Mic or Stereomix, or do both and have both on the headphones, which is super-annoying. Maybe I need better mixing software for it, but I'm not sure yet.

You mean as a permanent installment? I was thinking of implementing some kind of calendar, so that everyone can see when Ernst wants to make a program. There seem to be several calender services out on the web, maybe those calenders have an interface which can be polled from the web and integrated in the Ernstiwan front page, and maybe (if we ask really nice) Ernstadmin will give us a little patch of space in the EC menu for this.

If there is a need to share information besides that, we should look for an external application, or maybe I can even host a little chat system on our server - since I'm root I can install whatever I like, as long as it doesn't exceed our tiny resources - but a simple chat program probably won't. The only thing we have to watch out for in my opinion is not to spread our communication too far. It would be bad it there's the thread on EC and an external application, and both look deserted. Not sur about that though, since I have no experience with this.

Hah, I guess you haven't met everyones favourite server-heater. His name is nodejs and it's really tough to get around him these days. Even for a simple chat service.

The only light, tried and true chat system that I know is the IRC protocol, but you don't want to host your own ircd - just register a channel in a properly administrated network like hackint. Not everyone likes it though so ymmv.

Nooo, fucking bloated js libraries. But wouldn't those only affect the client side, with javascript being executed in the browser, and not on the server? If not, I'd need some kind of servlet container (like Tomcat) for it. Or is it just spamming the server with http requests from client side? Oh wait, never mind:
Node.js lets developers use JavaScript to write command line tools and for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser.
Probably not suitable for our 1-core 1GB-RAM cheapskate server :3
>just register a channel in a properly administrated network like hackint.
Absolutely no clue about IRC. It even was embarrassing when I had to set up a client to lurk in old KC IRC when downtimes became more frequent. but I guess it's a valid alternative.

You probably mean pic related: Unfortunately not. That would have been prohoster, but I switched to cryptoho.st last minute. prohoster promised a 2GB RAM-server, but my gut told me that this might be a scam, and there was something else what I didn't like, I think it was the payment method, but I already forgot. The hoster search and the peripheral stuff (getting my hands on some bitcoin, creating the mail accounts, getting the domain, creating accounts on several hosters before noticing that they were shit) was a real pain in the ass, way more work than the radio itself. Glad that it all worked out until now, and we all can enjoy some selfmade radio!

If Ernst is interested I will stream more electronic music the next weeks. Actual more skillful mixing is possible if I can manage cueing the next track in line with my shitty onbaord sound setup from the laptop. A few minutes ago I was just testing with old psy prog I found together with the mixing program on my old external hard drive

Sounds good. I might also have to switch my stream client, since I'm not sure why I can't record/stream mic and stereomix together while only hearing stereomix on my headphones. Most likely it's because I'm clueless, I have to do some research on that.

Luckily, our server is really cheap, and at the moment there is no problem with funding. Only when we gain ten thousands of fans (which I am convinced will inevitably happen over the next few weeks) and then need to upgrade to a redundant physical server hosting plan, with hosts spread over several data centers, then funding might become an issue. Until then don't worry, but thanks for your concern!

1GB is server RAM, bandwidth is unlimited :3 I doubt it is actually "unlimited", but the even all the limited offers I saw had at least 500GB, which basically means we can stream as long as we want. Though it might be interesting to see how multiple listeners affect bandwidth usage. There is probably no caching involved, so every packet for every listener should count as bandwidth usage - at least this makes sense in my mind. Since each client should holds it's own connection, I can't imagine a scenario where packets are sent to multiple users and still only count as one on network card level, or wherever bandwidth usage is measured - unless there is some unknown broadcast magic involved!

I only understood half of it but I now know that I can spin a few sets without problems per month.

I will try to make those more varying sets by the likes of Creme Organization. Some of their sets are a wild mix of house, techno and DnB, all in different styles, but all have a similar vibe nonetheless because many of that stuff is produced with analog gear, so their is no harsh cut between the tracks or an unpleasent change the sound picture overall. The DJ Console has a soundcard built in so pluggin in the USB cable is all I need to start mixing and broadcasting, perhaps already this week.

>so pluggin in the USB cable is all I need to start mixing and broadcasting
Currently I'm struggling a little on that field. Still looking for a suitable software which lets me combine mic input with stereomix for the stream, without sending the mic to the headphone. Unfortunately butt just lets you pick 1 channel to stream, so you can broadcast either stereomix or micro, and when you add your mic to stereomix via sound driver settings, you always have your voice on your headphones, which sucks. mixxx seems promising right now, and it can also easily connect to Icecast, but I have to run more tests to see if it really does what I want.
>>
No. 27260
>>27246
Well apparently my coughs were audible via mic array yesterday. butt captured the whole mix from mic perhaps routed to output and output. What you need is a routing of your mic into the output via a software that lets you record your mic and plays it back. Not sure if mixxx is capable of that.
you don't need icecast for broadcasting I think? Because butt did it all the sound transmission afaik. Yet I had the settings dialed in the Traktor mixing software. But you are doing the same for butt, so...

What about Audacity and mic recording? But play the music via winamp or whatever. Or look up tutorials about mic line-in with immediate playback and how to set it up.

> butt captured the whole mix from mic perhaps routed to output
Yes, as far as I understand that is only possibe by twerking audio channels outside of butt, because butt only streams one channel. Recording and playing back both mic and stereomix can be done via sound driver, when I add the mic to the stereomix, but that means including the mic output on my headphones, which of course isn't good. There are probably ways to fix this without using another software, but as always I'm too lame to do it, so it will be additional mixing software for me. I have to try what chvk wrote about his setup on /b/, in case mixxx fails me.
>Not sure if mixxx is capable of that.
I managed to do a recording with mixxx which recorded mic and stereomix while only sending stereomix to my headphones. Only downside is that it had some automatic damping function for stereomix when I started talking on the mic. Neat feature, but I'm not sure yet if I want it that way. I have to do more experimenting, I'm sure there will be a solution for it, and since there are a few different people who already announced that they will prepare a stream, I might switch my priority to finding a good calendar widget, so it will be easier for everyone to coordinate our activities.

>>27267
Yes, this was exactly the part I was fiddling around with, and so far it looks promising. Not sure yet if I can get rid of that damping, it's a nice feature for music, but if I ever stream and include live calls, it would be bad if people get damped when I talk. Not that I plan to do that right away, but I want to keep all possible options available.

A little announcement: I won't be able to attend to the radio over the weekend. It should not pose a problem though, until now this stuff looks kinda stable, I only ever restarted the server because I did config changes, and never for a technical reason. It should also start up after a VM reboot, although I haven't tried that yet. So I hope it will survive the weekend on it's own. I'll be back on sunday afternoon, and I should have plenty of time next week to continue work - this time without interruptions I hope.

As far as I see it, the most important thing on the work list is creating a calendar where you can announce streams. The offers I checked are almost all for wordpress-based pages, don't know why though. I didn't try google calendar yet, because, well, google.

Another thing is - if Ernstadmin is ok with it of course - some type of integration for EC. I might try to create something by myself here. All the pages Icecast delivers are based on xsl templates, and it should be pretty easy even for IQ89 radio admins like me to create a new one which just returns the name of the active streamer, maybe even with a link to the stream, or some static string like "offline" instead. I also think Phutaba is based on Python, so maybe I can work out a little code snippet which just reads the stuff from the to-be-created status page, so we could have a little icon or a textbox somewhere on EC where everyone could see if there's a stream online, and maybe even connect per mouse click. Not sure if I can get this to work, but for now it sounds possible to me.

I'll leave the testaccount active until sunday evening or so, I think that would be a good time to switch to the personal accounts. Until now there's never been a problem with the testaccount, but since the password is public, some hater might use it to block the stream or whatever, so I still think using personalized accounts is preferrable. While testing a newly created account I saw that I could connect to the server while someone else was already streaming, I thought that wasn't even possible. Not sure if it's a bug or a feature though, my thoughts were that there should only be one channel on the radio, because there's no point in having competition when the userbase is small like ours.

So have fun and happy streaming, save some of the good stuff for sunday :3

Here's a windows program some ernsts might find useful: https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/
It's a virtual audio cable that creates a virtual sound input device, and a sound playback device.

You can use the input device as a target for whatever application you are playing sound with, and it will be streamed to the playback device. That way you can play audio into the stream without having to listen to it yourself or polluting the signal with any audio that is happening on any other device. You can listen to it by checking "listen to this device".

It's based on Perl.
We can talk about that in the Phutaba development thread in /meta/.

I think it would be best to first do this in the regular board for a time to see how many people actually partake in the radio threads.
Otherwise I fear it will end up ignored as just another tab at the top.

Alternatively, have one radio thread on /int/ and /b/ where announcements are put regarding shows and then an extra board for discussion if the post frequency gets too much for single threads or people want a better archive...

Sounds reasonable for me. If the radio gains more popularity, then we can still ask for a sub-board. At the moment we have lots of volunteers for streaming, which is awesome, bit still there is only a limited amount of potential listeners.

I'll be there! Btw I took the freedom to enter this in our newly created calendar, which is available as a subpage on the radio server. Somehow this calendar solution feels a little clumsy, because this way everyone who wants to enter a stream has to register with the external provider (https://www.zoho.eu), and I have to add his registration mail address to the calendar admins, but for now I don't have an idea how this can be simplified. I already have given calendar admin privileges to everyone's mail adresses who wrote me to get a personalized streaming account, but technically it's no requirement to have one.

Damn, I feared something like this would happen. The Zoho site is perfectly unclear about what people can do with their "delegate or manage" privileges. I'll try to find out if there's anything I missed. If not, we might have to dump this solution. The "allow event requisition"-button in the screenshot looks tempting, but this only seems to enable some kind of web form, where a new event can be requested, and I'll probably still have to approve it.

OK, I think I might have figured it out what the problem was: When you create a new event, the calendar option defaults to your private calendar. You have to switch this to "ernstiwan(others)", then it appears in the radio calendar. I tried this with another account I set up for testing purposes, so it should (hopefully) work for everyone.

Anyone who has gotten a "group calendar invitation" or something like that in the meantime can ignore it, that was just another solution I was testing.

Great, this should do it for now. Remaining calendar issues: There does not seem to be a difference between event creation and event modification, so everyone can basically modify or delete everyone else's events. That is not good, for someone with malicious intentions could delete all events, no matter who created them. I don't think that is too bad right now, because the damage potential isn't that big. Maybe I'll write the developers and ask if they can implement this, surely we are not the only ones who could use that.

Also, there's still the time zone question. I don't have a strong opinion here, but for me it makes sense just go with the same time as Ernstchan itself, since it would be confusing to have stream dates differ from post dates. So I suggest UTC+2 / german time. For international users: This can be configured in the Zoho user personal information tab (pic related).

Technically not, the radio supports multiple streams, but I suggest to somehow adjust the timeslots so that the listeners don't have to decide which stream to listen to. Maybe Kazakhbro can start later, or you split your stream at 19:00 and pick up after Kazakhbro has finished. That was my initial thought why I wanted only 1 stream to be active at any time: We are few in numbers here on EC, and in my opinion it doesn't make sense to have multiple streams at once. Still, it's good that it's technically possible, so nobody can block the stream.

Don't worry, I think it's pretty awesome to actually have the need to adjust streaming timeslots. I initially feared that no one would want to use the radio at all, but it's great to be proven wrong. Also: I'd be the last person in the world to tell anybody how to use the radio. If Ernst wants to have more than one stream at once, I'm completely fine with that. In the end, it comes down to your own choice how you like our radio the most.

Question: I said a few days ago that I want to disable the test account, but I thought about it this morning, and maybe we can try just leaving it as it is. This way we still can have spontaneous streams by anybody (since people do seem to make use of it) as well as regular streamers using their personal account, with which they can't be blocked by anybody else. Testaccount would just work like "first come first serve". What do you think about this?

Because that's what I like best in my situation. I will probably and there might be users who do no stream regulary who can use it then stream tonight again, because I have nothing to do all day more or less atm and can listen to some music without skipping heavily as usual but not uncommon for electronic music since most tracks are built by a formula that suits them for mixing anyway.

Not sure about it either. We can experiment with the values in the icecast config to see which is the most suitable configuration. I just checked the config and guess what: It seems that I never actually limited the possible sources to 1 (I thought I did, but I did not), since there's still 2 in the config. So it makes sense that there could be 2 sources streaming at once.

For now I think we have the following options:

  1. have no user accounts, just one stream for everybody
Pro: Good for listeners, never worry about who is streaming. Con: Someone might block the stream, especially when the password is public

2. have user accounts and the public mountpoint
Pro: account owners everyone can always stream when they want, and everyone can still use the public stream. Con: More that one stream divides listeners, also listeners have to actively look who is online - maybe we can get rid of this issue with the EC front side integration, which might be able to show the available streams and hopefully include a direct link to them, so it wil look like "Kazakh Ernst - Satan's Cock - [link]". Not sure if we can pull it off though.

I have no strong opinion about which way is best here, I think time will tell.

The last thing which is really missing tbh.

I'd say the test stream is good as long someone is trolling or not sticking to the rules of the calendar. Because spontaneous public streaming is whoever comes first. I thought about streaming another going randomly thru one of my lists, but kazhakh announced it first / streams first and want to keep my streak and listen another part of a deleuze lecture today.
And for me one stream is preferable, feels more like a local broadcasting station then. I'm cool with not being able to stream because somebody else is streaming 80s pop or obscure psychedelic rock just a genre place holder here, my knowledge on that music is just nearly non existent from former soviet countries or whatever else there is to stream.

Tbh I'm open to negotiation on streaming times, since I'm basically NEET anyway, and first come first serve is unfair when dealing with someone who spends the whole day at the computer :-DDDD.
Right now I'm just figuring stuff out as far as music lineup goes, I'm fine with downtime if somebody else wants to stream, gives me more time for research to set up a more comprehensive selection.
I agree though that having one mountpoint would be tidier, but then there would have to be an interface for multiple people to stream to the mount point. Not sure if that is easy to set up.

Just pick what you like best, chances are everyone else will like it, too. And even if I don't like it: Sometimes it's still good to hear stuff you wouldn't listen to normally, it widens my view.
>Not going to call dibs on stream time for the next days, don't want to hog.
Don't worry, even if you were online 24/7, everyone else can still ask in the thread if they can have a timeslot, so it's not like you are taking away anything from anyone. I still am thrilled that we even have to worry about this kind of stuff. When creating the radio I thought that most likely no one would ever want to stream. It feels good to see that people participate and enjoy themselves!

Well, tbh, streaming is a pretty good excuse for me to clear out my music backlog :-DDD.
Albums I've only skimmed through and never intently listened to make for good streaming material. The pressure of being live prevents me from just dropping the album or skipping around, so I'm forced to listen through it from start to finish. Which is the way G-d intended for music to be listened to.

I've even thought of maybe buying a CD player and burning my own CDs or something. This bad habit of just scrobbling through music on youtube or some random playlist is hurting my musical development.

Well, I can either DJ a bit, which is nice, tho I never was a DJ I played that progressive psytrance on private parties and also techno in a real club once or listen to the stuff I gathered over the years in my Yotube lists, which is also cool, because I often just skip thru them. Here in hospital I have to lay in bed quite a lot, since sitting hurts my back quite much, so listening to something is preferred over reading all day. When I'm at home I might stream when doing something that requires music playing in the background or DJ for an hour or two.

Guilty as charged. The few occasions where I listen through full albums, it makes me notice how they often are more than just the sum of their songs. I never noticed until now that radio is a good way to pop my own musical bubble I've placed myself in.

>>27601

Sounds good. So that will involve live mixing and working with effects and stuff? t. no clue about DJing

I like how each streamer has a completely different musical background, that surely will lead to a diversified (and thus more interesting) radio program.
>Here in hospital I have to lay in bed quite a lot, since sitting hurts my back quite much, so listening to something is preferred over reading all day.
I remember bringing my SNES emulator and playing Seiken Densetsu 3 and other stuff during my hospital visits. Good times, eased a lot of worries back then. No serious worries though, it was always just about sitting things out and waiting to get better.

The good thing about electronic music, that is made for dancing/moving, is that single tracks stand usually for their own and don't need a particular context. I will stream some conceptual works one day tho, music that really is more off the mark soundwise and beyond the typical 4 to the floor beat made to make you move and thus really forms what is generally called an album

>DJing

Yeah, effects are optional, classically you just mix one track into another, sometimes its more than one, but I just do it the classic way. The stream with psytrance was mixed, there are no breaks the tracks mix into each other (endlessly), a constant flux.

The old one was snoring so loud I woke up several times in the night.
The new one is disabled. Atm he is quite, but when he came here he was making repetitive vocals noises more or less loudly. Hope he will not do it in the night again. Oh well, I will need to call the nurse then. There is nothing planned for tomorrow besides waiting for the doctors to tell me whats actually wrong because one of them came in because of the new patient and also told me they found nothing on the MRT as they expected to to. So they will look some more and will come tomorrow if there is news.

I know it's not very fair, but mentally disabled people cause discomfort in me, because they are unpredictable. That causes additional stress, because it feels like you have to be on the lookout more than usual. Of course, it depends on the kind of impairment.

Depends a little on which region of the body, I think it's around 600-800€, so it's not super-expensive.

Was the same with me, 10 bucks per day, don't know how you got around this. Felt strange because you pay hundreds of bucks every month for healthcare, and then there is this arbitrary amount of money you have to pay for intransparent reasons. I mean, it's usually not like you deliver yourself to the hospital, the doctor says you have to go. I can at least understand why they tried to make everyone pay 10 bucks to see a doctor, because they are overwhelmed by folks who simulate or old people who have no one left to talk to, but 10 for a night at the hospital? Sure, whatever. It's not like I ever was planning to stay there one second longer than necessary anyway.

Well it's not his fault really. He doesn't say anything unless you talk to him, he didn't make any noise so far again. I can freely watch what I want and don't feel observed. If he begins again in the night I can call the nurse. I talked to one and told her I feel kinda bad to call the nurse to tranquilize him, but she said he and I both need rest :DDD, the friendliest nurse so far, also quite beautiful somehow and same year born as me, feels weird to act kinda formal (Sie) but then talk about fall and hospital.

I got them because of my back pains, they are not mandatory for everyone (at least here) and I could decline them. But having less pain is more comfortable right now. It would work without tho.

Good morning everyone. I wanted to experiment a little with my mixxx streaming software setup today, since it didn't work properly yesterday. Anybody available for a test? If yes, I'd start a stream with some music and some live voiceovers. Goals of the test would be:

  1. is the annoying interference noise still there?
  2. are music and voice properly mixed into the stream (both can be heard in roughly equal loudness)?
If I just record my own output, it's just fine, but so it was yesterday, so it's hard to check for myself. Just post if you have time for a test, I'll set up a stream then.

I think you may have interference between mike and speaker if you're playing back the audio you're streaming, and both microphone and output jacks are connected in the same place.

There's faint static even when nothing is playing, not sure that's supposed to be happening when there's no signal. Unless your mic is connected and merely quieted rather than tured or plugged off.
It's really weird, because since the whole stream is pretty much virtual inside the computer, there shouldn't be any noise whatsoever, unless it's from microphone or if you're streaming audio into the computer from an external source.

Not sure if bitrate and stuff like that can have effect, but they probably shouldn't.

Mic is still connected, but taken out of the mix by configuration. Could still cause interference, though. Another source might be the cable of my stereo, which was kinda close to the rest, which I also put away now.

The static still there? If yes I'd like to try again with the mic actually pulled from the system.

Audacity tells me that mic and stereomix are silent. Now the weird fact: When I turn on the mic in mixxx, I get that static, even in Audacity, that's also what you heard I think. And now the really weirt fact: The more I tune my mic DOWN, the stronger the static. It also disappears after a few seconds, so it probably is mixxx trying to balance things on its own.

I have tried mixxx and found it clunky.

https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/
I'd recommend this personally.
The macro / hotkey setup is a bit fiddly, but otherwise it's a much more straightforward mixer that only does one thing - mix audio streams.

You can set its virtual input as the output of any programs, connect a microphone to it, and stream the output to the icecast client. You can have any audio playing without having to listen to it or polluting the signal.
I think that's a lot more convenient than wrestling with an all in one solution.

Trying it out right now, looks indeed easy, no problems mixing my mic and my music together (just 2 different audio channels joined in 1 virtual output channel), and Audacity and butt recognize the new output channel. Pretty neat. I also just remembered it's the same stuff chvk (the radio host from RFK, who showed interest in our radio) uses. Should have really tried that earlier. I'm sure mixxx is great, but might be too heavyweight for my purposes. That's the reason I wanted to use butt in the first place: The less configuration options, the less opportunities for me to screw up :D

I got me some idea, i don't know if you guys like it but if not i'm sure i will notice.

I made a list with 10 albums (all of them are considered classics in their genre so there won't be any obscure super underground niche stuff) and you can vote what you would be most interested in listening to next, the album with the most votes will be streamed.
As soon as one album was played it will be replaced in the poll by a different album so that there are always 10 albums to choose from but never the same one twice.

You can vote for multiple albums but please don't vote if you already know that you won't listen or you might risk hurting my feelings.

I think i take a fixed time for that stream once per week but i'm not sure yet.

Here's the poll with my first 10 picks, i tried to get a variety of different genres:

Ween has several categories of songs: goofing around, spoofing other genres, soulful, sad songs, and soulful sad songs while goofing around.

Here's a sampler of their sad songs.

I'm pretty sure one of the members of the band did heroin for a while (though not sure if at the time of those recordings), and after a while he got so fucked up that the rest of the band left the stage during a show, then they broke up.
He cleaned up, the band was reformed and they started touring again.

I liked it, and believe it or not that's actually the first time I've heard any of Frank Zappa's music.

Suggestion: How about removing the album with the lowest votes (or randomly one of those who zero'ed out on votes) at the end of a cycle? Reason: Since an album can only leave the list when it's played, the votes are only deciding the order in which the albums are played, and if Ernst for some reason never votes for a particular album, it will eventually clog up the list.

Kindly ignore my suggestion if that was the whole point of the strawpoll system.

I actually considered kicking out 2 instead of just 1 each week and putting the album i kicked out without playing it back in at some other time.

I did not think about it to avoid having an album in there forever but because i want a good mix of genres and times of release and if a certain genre (or decade) isn't voted for as often i could choose between ending up with only albums from genre/decade X (that no one likes) or i'm simply not able to ever add another one that falls in this category.

So i guess we're going to have a faster cycle in the future but albums kicked out can come back unless they were voted for already.

Oh and by the way, next weeks new entries are going to be great!

I did some successful stream testing. The last stumbling block was the microphone. BUTT needs microphone access to work(Audio Settings:Microsoft Sound Mapper Input). I don't know if changing the audio settings will allow me to disconnect the microphone. As it is, with that setting if I kill the mic, it kills the stream. Streomix was another option, but MSMI was the first setup that actually worked and, with that victory under my belt, I decided to stop tinkering.

I also use butt and at first I always streamed just stereomix. If you only want to stream music, that should be fine. If you want to stream mic and stereomix (or any other kind of multiple audio channel input) I recommend what >>27735 said, VoiceMeeter really did the trick for me, and it's simple to use. You have a few input channels you can define from your available audio devices and a virtual output channel (which is recognized by butt), so you can just define any input you want and send it to your virtual output channel, and use that output channel in butt.
>OP should make another thread, and include the same links and connection pictures. We don't want the information to slide down the catalog.

You didn't miss much, just me trying to organize my music pile into some logical structure.
I was also able to look at my settings more closely and figure out why BUTT only works when the microphone is active. When I was denying access to the microphone, this also blocked access to ALL audio input devices-which of course included Stereo Mix and Microsoft Sound Mapper. So access to the mic has to be on, which is the bad news. The good news is that the computer is a desktop and I don't have to leave one plugged in. That way BUTT will work, and there's no danger of my karaoke accidental ambient noise infecting the stream :DD.
