I'd like to find more opportunities to share what Owncast is up to with people who would be interested in such things.

Do you know of any Podcasts, YouTube channels or blogs who would be interested in talking about independent, open source live streaming?

I'd love it if you could suggest Owncast as a topic to your favorite content creators!

We know volunteering to help an open source project can feel overwhelming, even when you're interested. Well here's one for those with a web UX and layout skillset:

Owncast is going through a redesign and could use your help with opinions and feedback. We'd like a person or two to act as consultants in our chat to answer questions, you don't need to actively produce or _do_ anything. We need someone to ask: "Should this be blue? Is this ugly?" Could that be you?

LIVE NOW: Just a man, a piano, and the esoteric practice of pairing poetic words and phrases with a sequence of musical tones and rhythms. Come for the tunes, stay for the shitty political views!

PR adding #Owncast support to #Convene is ready for review! github.com/zinc-collective/con

Once a different maintainer takes a gander at it, folks with a Space will be able to embed live streams from their OwnCast!

At some point I'll also make it one-click to set up Owncast on our cooperatively owned infrastructure.

If you enjoy music but you're not a Eurovision fan 😮 , there's a night of alternative music just getting started over on @jnktn_tv going on right now and carrying on for several hours:

jnktn.tv 🎧

It's powered by the Fediverse platform @owncast

(Technically the jnktn server is not federating yet, but it shows what Owncast is capable of 👍 and you can follow them on their Mastodon account at @jnktn_tv)

Check out the latest post on my website where I explain my switch over to Owncast. I have also done some work to update my profiles on several of my websites so hopefully people will know who I am and what I am about.

If today is your first day joining us on the Fediverse, or maybe you're somebody who dabbled in the past and is giving it a second shot, a huge welcome to all of you. It's a unique place, and even more unique now that you've joined us. Let's do cool things together.

Discovered @gttradio via @owncast . I love discovering this world of Patreon supported creators on #opencollective supported platforms, that you can subscribe to via Mastodon ^^

Things are starting to shape up for the next release of Owncast!

Mastodon is part of the Fediverse, a collection of alternative social networks which talk to each other. People on the Fedi can interact even if they're on different kinds of networks.

One of the newest parts of the Fediverse is @owncast, a free open alternative to Twitch. It lets you create live video streams with a chat bar for viewers to interact with the streamer.

Because it's part of the Fediverse, Owncast streaming accounts can be followed from Mastodon. Every time a stream starts, a post will appear on followers' timelines in Mastodon.

You can find out more on the official Owncast website at owncast.online, and there's a directory of Owncast streamers at directory.owncast.online

p.s. Are you a developer? Owncast are currently looking for help with development and design, see here for details: fosstodon.org/@owncast/1081380

Owncast is a growing open source project that could use your help.

Specifically there's a lot of web UI () that could use somebody who can focus on that. And as the project is nearing a couple years old now, it's becoming time to level-up the architecture of the backend () to prepare for new features.

I'd love it if you could share this with your network of talented friends and colleagues to help kick off the next chapter of independent live streaming.
