[linux-audio-user] LAC 2005 streaming: CfP

hello everyone !
the linux audio conference 2005 @ zkm (http://lac.zkm.de) is drawing
near, and it's time to get the streaming network up and running again.
like last year, the idea is to stream all the lectures and discussions
live over the net, and to provide webcams with either stills every 30
secs or (if we can pull it off) theora video streaming. of course we
will also provide IRC channels for online participation.
currently, i'm looking for people who are willing to host a streaming
relay server based on icecast2.
for our primary relays, we will need servers with >= 10 mbits of
bandwidth (smaller links would put too much load on the master server),
however, folks with less bandwidth are welcome to join in as well, but
they will have to pull their streams off a secondary server.
if you can donate some time and bandwidth and want to have fun with live
streaming, please holler now. please also indicate whether you would be
willing to participate in a sort of "stand-by streaming network" that
could easily reactivated for other linux-audio-related events (i'm
cc:ing tim hall who is putting together a conference in the uk later
this year, and maybe conrad could use it too for the linux audio
miniconf in australia...)
also on the cc: list are some of the folks who participated last year
(hi marco, patrice and fred!), in the hope that they will be able to
join us again...
we will prepare detailed instructions on how to build and configure
icecast2 - previous streaming experience is not necessary, although it
helps if you know your way around basic networking issues.
if you are interested, please reply to my private address only, so that
we don't clutter people's inboxes too much. then i'll put together an
ad-hoc cc: list or maybe we'll ask for a proper mailing list on the zkm
server, depending on how many people are interested...
i don't have francois dechelle's current email address, perhaps someone
could forward this mail to him.
