 Just an Idea
Hey everyone! Lately I've been trying to come up with ways to liven up these forums and bring us back together as clan. I know many of you live really busy lives which has primarily lead to the decrease in clan activity but I have an idea that I think might be fun and interesting try.

My thought is to make videos/write reviews for games and post them to these forums for everyone to see and comment on. My hope is that maybe some of the games I review you guys will have never heard of and wanna try them out. Also if you guys wanna jump in and make some cool reviews on games you love then that would be awesome too. who knows maybe one of us will a review a game and next thing you know, everyone will get into it. We can even work together to review multi-player/co-op games over teamspeak. The reviews don't have to be extensive just whats working, what needs refinement and a basic layout of the games mechanics.

Heck, think outside the box and review a movie, a show or even a piece of computer hardware you maybe running. I don't care what you review just have fun with it. :D

Like the subject of this post says, it's just an idea but I kinda wanted to see what you guys thought before I started putting some of my time into it. If your interested in helping me do this but lack the software for recording and edit videos just let me know, I''ll get you what you need. ;)

Interesting idea, there are a lot of possibilities! LA livestreams? :P
Some of us have recording and editing software, oh god, multi cams? XD
It would be nicest to have every written/video review done in 1 style, not every video with a different begin/end slate. Which would require a stinger (intro music) and an outro tune (called a bumper as I recall).
Together with the upcoming (soon(TM)) site overhaul maybe we can have a dedicated page for all of this.

I can't stream, I tried and i bluescreened 3 times.
Interesting idea though. When I get back off LOA I'll look into a way of embedding something into the portal.

Live stream might be interesting. I agree though, we should have an LA intro video and style of some sort.

Actually i might be able to embed a livestream where the current video is. I know i can do it with youtube, it's just a matter of whether other websites have an embedding code I can use

Twitch is the most popular and has embedding code as far as I know.
As for intro style give https://machinimasound.com/stingers?limit=30 a look, maybe things like Club01 or SciFi01
But that depends on the length of the video's, longer videos can have longer intros. Also an idea might be a longer track that simply fades out after a while and we start talking ;)

Edit:
I've tried a couple of streaming clients, since they need to connect to Twitch.
Open Broadcaster Software seems the best atm, since 2 out of 4 Twitch supported software requires money and Evolve lags the shit out of the game.
I have a lot of dropped frames though but that may be cause Minecraft is one of the worst games to capture :lol:

OBS and Xsplit seem to be the popular broadcast clients to use

We could do a stream/record page where people can fill in a template like:
Name:
Stream Quality:
Record Quality:

Then we know who can('t) do streams/recording.

I could try stream from my laptop but that would be stuff like BC and older games.
I'll eventually figure out what's up with my comp
