the lil streaming server that i've been working on with @prophet_goddess and @alys has reached ~minimum viable product~ status

(entirely arbitrary, determined by us)

check it out: gitlab.com/egirls/dios#dios

testing the new pure-ffmpeg implementation of our streamer server trash.cloud/

merged a big update to our streaming server yesterday, switching the RTMP implementation to one's that's maintained (SRS) and finally starting to polish up the documentation gitlab.com/egirls/dios#dios

just merged an experimental low latency setting for the dios streaming server 👁️

it's off by default but we're seeing stream delay down to 5s when you turn it on

exciting stuff gitlab.com/egirls/dios#dios

@catalina @prophet_goddess @alys if I want to play around with it: would you recommend a dedicated box for this (and if so, how big) or is this the kind of thing that can perhaps run alongside a bunch of other (lightweight, not-Mastodon-level) services? I ask because if I do get it running I am guaranteed to make a documentation PR in the process

@darius @prophet_goddess @alys i'm not super sure since i'm running it in k8s with separate containers for the application, postgres, and nginx-rtmp

those could probably run together in one mid-size machine? soon though we'll be adding ffmpeg for re-encoding and i expect that will require a lot more resources (when enabled)

@catalina @prophet_goddess @alys i am unironically excited about this, i hollered "holy shit they've done it", i have no ability to host or maintain it but i love that this exists. thanks

@catalina @prophet_goddess @alys @darius I love projects like this. Saying this whether I ever use it or not. Death to Twitch-Amazon! 🏴‍☠️
