What’s happening at RCD Radio? What’s New?

studio-pic26RCD Radio 24/7 Streaming
The reason RCD Radio is currently offline and has been for a few months is due to the lack of high quality equipment, I will not stream in poor quality, I refuse, with this being said I would like to announce my aim.

However, on its way is a brand new Dell Precision T3400 machine which shall be used as a server to support a 24/7 Live Music Stream, it was ordered early yesterday morning and is expected to arrive on Friday 5th September, once we have it up and running, you will be the first to know by our blog.

IdleChat IRC
Our chat used to be held on the iPocalypse IRC network, but recently, iPocalypse has merged in to one great big giant ball of fire with another network (Known as DamDevil IRC) and is now called IdleChat, what does this mean to you? absolutely nothing, the only difference is that the name of the network has changed, you can still use your same old username and password like you always have, this paragraph is a huge shout out to IdleChat! Twitter: http://twitter.com/idlechatirc

DJ Lozo - Wide Shot - Now That's What I Call Music Volume 2Shop
The RCD Radio shop is currently closed while we sort out a new company to print our T-Shirts, you may be able to pre order T-Shirts at some point in the future, but for now, dealing is still going on, we shall update the blog when you can pre order T-Shirts and we shall include it on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Vaughnlive – Ustream
After hours of considering it, we have decided to switch video streaming platforms for our main stream from Ustream to Vaughn live as Vaughn live meets what we need in order to Live stream, for now though we are going to be giving it a trial run and if it does not turn out as good as we hopped, we shall return back to Ustream, you can check out our stream on Vaughn Live and follow us at http://vaughnlive.rcdradio.com

Justintv
As you may of already heard, Justin.tv shut down in early August and for obvious reasons we do not have any plans to continue with this company, all domains and URL’s to Justin.tv have been removed from our site.

We are still working on the Live Page for RCD Radio and it will hopefully be released later next month (October) with some improvements, more about this in a future blog post near the time of the release and a chance for you to properly test it out.

For now, that’s all of our big updates covered for RCD Radio, we shall let you know once our Live 24/7 Broadcast starts, we shall need you to try out our feed for feedback, but more information about that coming later this month.

Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates that don’t make it to our blog, thank you for supporting us and we hope to talk to you very soon.

Live Streaming Services – We will be using both Ustream.tv and Justin.tv

RCD RADIO NO LONGER BROADCASTS ON JUSTIN.TV DUE TO ITS SHUTTING DOWN ON AUGUST 5TH 2014 – THIS BLOG POST HOWEVER REMAINS HERE FOR REFERENCE.

Out site launches in just a few weeks now and we have had to decide how and where we are going to stream the RCD Radio Content online.

At this stage we will not be using a shoutcast server as it is currently not in the funds this time round, but we will be using our main services Ustream.tv and Justin.tv as our streaming service for the time being.

 

 

When we go Live at the main RCD Radio Studio the webcam’s will be turned on and there will be a visual experience.

Both the Ustream and Justin feeds will be showing the same visual and audio audio to both services.

As we will have a live page at RCD Radio, we will only be using one feed as our default, we will be mainly using the Ustream feed on the RCD Radio Live page but the Justin.tv option is there for anyone to find on the JTV website, it is so we are using more platforms instead of using one and it may help us reach out to more people this way.

You can join our Ustream.tv crowd and get email notifications when we go live, when we create a new event and reminders when a event is about to start on Ustream.tv, to join the Ustream crowd, go to http://ustream.rcdradio.com

If you have a JTV account, you can follow us on Justin.tv and get notifications when we go live on JTV, to follow us on JTV, go to http://jtv.rcdradio.com

Below are both the Ustream.tv and the Justin.tv feed embed’s
