Radio Rivendell is a non-commercial, non-profiting web radio station that plays fantasy music 24×7. The station has been online since 2001, growing out of a Shoutcast experiment.
Blah blah blah, right? Well, I think it’s a cool little site. I won’t bore you with all the reasons why I like the idea of a 24×7 stream of fantasy music. If you’re into the genre, you already get it. Here are a couple other things I like about Rivendell:
Interviews: Everyone can do interviews, but the Council has integrated then into the site in a slick way, giving each group their own mini-page on the site. On the mini-pages, you can see a complete list of albums, and even a list of all the composer’s songs.
Just Played: I’m loving this page, where you can see what has recently played on Rivendell. Each song/album/artist is linked to internal pages.
Anyway, check the channel out.
Have you ever used UStream? How hard is it to set up a stream? How does streaming live video differ from recording for later release? How would you handle multiple video streams coming in at the same time? Is there an easy way to toggle between two contributing video feeds? For instance, if I wanted one camera on the audience and one on a presented, is that possible with UStream? If so, how hard is it to set up?
