This is the official support thread for https://watch.8ch.moe/ What is this site? A place for anons to stream anything they'd like. You can stream any video you'd like, and users can join chat anonymously. Streams can also be embedded elsewhere for easy sharing. Chat is built around XMPP, so you can connect with any Jabber client. Streams are generic RTMP streams, so you can connect and view them directly. For example, you can watch a stream in VLC instead of on the website. What can't it do? So far, no emotes/images in the chat. This should be available soon. Theme support is poor. The site can have one global theme. User-selectable themes and channel-specific CSS coming soon. The site supports uploading videos and storing clips, but these features are currently disabled. If there's strong interest, I can make it available, but I'd need a way to pay for storage space. Why should I use this? The goal is to provide anons with an easy, convenient way to get a media stream. Other sites actively police uploads to enforce "community guidelines". It can be inconvenient to share some media as a result. The site isn't working well! Leave a reply here describing the problem. If you're having performance issues, I can help diagnose. If the site is being used heavily and begins to struggle, I can download more RAM to make it go faster. I'll be doing some streams myself in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for announcements.
>>1627 >>1628 >>1629 The software relies on Redis, and it ran out of memory. I've allocated more RAM to the VPS and rebooted. Should be fine for another couple months at least. Since the site has a decent following, I'll look into building my own hardware for it. This will allow higher bitrates and adaptive streaming, among other features.
I don't know if it's possible to delist sites of your own accord from search engines but I'd consider doing it if possible. The DMCA sniffers corporations have are getting increasingly advanced and now scan livestreams in real time on (((twitch))) for any (((copyrighted))) music and take instantly submit takedown requests when they detect anything. At some point you could see them even submitting auto takedowns over copyrighted images and shit.
The "forgot password" page only send me to 500 error page when I finished input my email address
>>1633 And no email send to the address
>>1633 Forgot to reconfigure that after the last install. Give me a bit to map it to an SMTP server. >>1631 I can add a robots.txt that asks scrapers to not visit. Scrapers can choose to visit anyways. I'll go ahead and do so. And possibly add user agent detection so their bots need to deliberately fake being a user.
I don't know how easy it would be to implement but i think a theater mode like twitch has would be nice.
>>1519 Is the software behind watch.8chan.moe open source? Willing to contribute and interested in running my own instance.
>>1710 Yes. I didn't write it but am working on my own contributions to push upstream. You can find their website here: https://openstreamingplatform.com/ (https://archive.is/8uiHv) And their github is here: https://gitlab.com/Deamos/flask-nginx-rtmp-manager Unfortunately, their developer chat is in (((Discord))), so be aware they might expect you to communicate through that. >>1709 This might be possible to add via the theme manager. >>1633 >>1634 >>1637 Still haven't configured SMTP; my apologies. Webring took up most of my time this week. I'll work on improving this service soon.
>>1711 Awesome, thanks.
Its been brought up by some viewers a couple times that they'd like quality options since they have poo internet and can't always stream source. I think 2 options should probably do it. Source quality and 480p.
>>1779 I've enabled Adaptive Streaming, so it should now try to provide multiple streams. Let me know if it's not working, or if the toaster explodes from the stress.
>>1779 >>1786 Adaptive streaming has been disabled once again. The server has enough horsepower for about 2 streams and that's it. 3 pushes it to 100% CPU. I need hardware with a dedicated GPU or a much beefier CPU. I'll see if I can tweak it to only generate one alternative bitrate per stream, which might keep things manageable.

500 Internal Server error during UT stream.
(8.80 KB 320x200 rocket-ranger_16.jpg)
>>1799 Twitch does some major dangling transcoding at streamers with partnering, affiliates, and other sketchy garbage they hide. Maybe just a live viewer count # trigger would be acceptable.
Clicking the "my channels" leads to a 500 internal server error been like this since the whole site died a couple days ago and haven't been able to get to my settings to grab my stream key since i changed my settings in OBS for twitch and when i tried to switch back the settings for streaming here they had reset.
>>1849 This sometimes happens when the chat module fails. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. It was working when I brought the server up, but sometimes it just fails. I'll try kicking it once the Uncommon Time stream is over for the night.
>>1849 >>1850 The chat daemon has been slapped and should behave now. At least, I can access my channel list again. If you continue to have problems, let me know.
Is there a way to link 8ch streams to cytube?
>>1889 Yes. From a channel's page, find the "Share" option (can be in different places depending on if chat is enabled or not) and there should be an iFrame Embed option. Copy that. On Cytube, there is an "Embed iFrame" option next to the Embed Media button. Paste the HTML you copied earlier and it should embed. There are some issues with scrollbars. You can fix these with CSS by disabling overflow. Might also be able to reduce the size of the embedded object a little by playing with the width and height parameters. It seems like Cytube expects a particular size and the streaming platform defaults to one slightly too large.

Just tested this earlier, there's about half a minute of delay, which is the same thing I experience on peertube instances that allow live streaming... Is there any way this can be optimized for low latency? If not, are there any other services that are?
>>2138 Possibly. It's running on a toaster in the simplest possible configuration. I am looking at other options, but it will require some time and money.
Site machine broke
>>2191 I just ran the renewal script; something must have broken. I'll take care of it.
>>2191 >>2192 Webserver just needed a restart. Should be good now.
Does it still stream these days or just a random chatroom?
>>2216 We just had some streams today.
It would be great if under "My channels" list the actual channel link would be displayed, right now I had to figure it out by going to the homepage, leave the "search channels" blank and enter my channel through that way, which is counter intuitive in my opinion.

Fix your damn broken shit, one anon wanted me to watch his strim and in Firefox Nightly 90a it's The Buffering Community, while in Chromium Portable 92 it's Haiti Earthquake on player auto resizing 10 times per second. This is trully a pig farmer-tier striming solution. Not the fault of the strimer anon as he ran a twatch strim to rule out issues with his upload or whatever.

>>2291 >>2292 Looks like a client side issue. Did you try using ie9?
Is it possible to get some kind of support for people who don't use Javascript? Right now all of the pages are empty. I'm not expecting to get video streaming to work, but just having a list of videos / streams / channels available and being able to browse them would be good.
>>2887 The site itself is pretty reliant on JavaScript and I don't think there's a way to change that. However, you can connect to video streams via RTMP. Here's an example: Take a stream URL: https://watch.8ch.moe/view/12345/ Swap HTTP to RTMP, "view" to "live", and add the port (1935) after the domain: rtmp://watch.8ch.moe:1935/live/12345 You can drop this into VLC or some other media players to view the content directly without ever visiting the web page.
