Re-installation and next steps in the live lifecast

Posted by Jet

So we had these great cameras from Dlink (Thanks Brian!) but they ended up not being compatible with streaming up to (boo hoo).

So now, we’re installing webcams into Hal’s place and putting up the feeds to 6 separate channels, and the Peepcast will pull in those feeds and we’ll have all 6 to watch on our new Peepcast page – Watch for that tomorrow!!!!!

Meanwhile, we still have to record the feeds except the quality of the webcams is really low – around 360 x 120 and we will need a much higher resolution for the film – SO! we’re now getting some surveillance cameras in that will record to DVRs.  This has all been last minute as the quality issues on these have been challenging – especially since the budget is limited.

Eddy from has stepped in and has sourced us some mediasonic DVRs that should take care of the recording and we can use some of our old cameras we had from Cat Ladies.  Then the webcams will sit just above the surveillance cameras and broadcast to the Peepcast.

We’re installing tomorrow morning – if you get a chance check out channel (there maybe thepeepdiaries1,2,3,4,5 & 6) and you can see the trouble we’re getting into. 

Five people in Hal’s tiny basement  – hope everyone has had a shower!
