i did some experimenting with embedding twitch streams in the header (i am procrastinating hardcore, if that isn’t obvious). it seems to work pretty well on both mobile and desktop. i created it as a “theme component” that can easily be turned on and off - here’s a sample of the styling - i used @andrei_jay’s channel as an example, but i also tested it with currently live streams from gamers haha. we can switch to point it to whatever channel we want each time.
with the header embed, the stream doesn’t reload even if you are navigating around the forum, which is cool. eventually, i’d like to explore using our own streaming server/infrastructure like @v3d mentioned instead of twitch - but to be honest, i don’t yet know how to do that, i have never even done a live stream before. but i think i will try a stream from analog capture soon, probably just with twitch and OBS to start, after i am done with school stuff.
i think we should probably wait a bit until we are ready to be slightly more public about this site to do a proper stream, but i just wanted to see how this would work.
also, i like rainbows
