Is this better than QT Broadcaster?
Authored by: linguini on Oct 19, '05 11:23:16AM

A few months ago, our 'low-tech' baby intercom stopped working, so we used a powerbook running quicktime broadcaster to broadcast live audio from our baby's room. Worked perfectly, and I really enjoyed the puzzled looks on the faces of people to whom I tried to explain what the powerbook is doing there...

So now I'm glad to hear I'm not the only crazy Mac user who has such ideas!

no, it's almost the same, i compared the load with streaming mpeg-4 and it's about 20% on my old ibook. maybe you can submit your way as another hint so we could compare the easiness. i guess you just launch qtb, put the ip in manual unicast and the same ip into qtp?

i noticed there's a "plus" button on the AUNetReceive palette, where i can type in hostname and port which would allow to stream, with well chosen ports (or well setup firewall) to stream over internet?

another think, i could add more AUNetSends and choose different encoding. perhaps a way how to run a home made radiostation?

well i still can't sleep when a computer is on in the same room (well ibook is silent if its hard disk goes to sleep too and load is low to keep its fan off) but children of the future should get used to it as once they might have one in their skull :)
