To be clear, do you mean the icecast_url field in summit.schedule.Room ?


It is yet another code base.  It is both streaming server and django website to build a central page of streams that shows images taken from each  stream every 5 seconds.  Plus a bunch of other features like js irc chat on the same page.

http://timvideos.us/  is an instance of it.  Currently there is no event streaming, and because it dynamicaly builds the main page based on the talk schedule, it doesn't look like much.

If someone wants to make it better let me know and I'll document out how to bring up a dev instance with dummy streams.

from what I've found so far that just displays a link to some external
place to view the live stream. Valessio is talking about making a nice
looking page that we could link to from there. It will make it easy for
viewers to watch directly in their browsers and provide other nice
stuff. I haven't yet found that kind of functionality in summit. If you
have, please point me at it.

I'm getting decently comfortable with the summit code. So, I can likely
help if we decide to integrate Valessio's work directly into summit.
Just pointing to his creation from the schedule is probably sufficient,
though, and less work.
