How do i reduce my birate? and do i really have to get another pc to stream on, and where can i get a server? I don't know your software so I can't tell you exactly where to make your changes. Using BUTT it's in Settings/Stream/Bitrate. The broadcaster sets the bit rate being sent, not the receiver. Not knowing your upload bandwidth again leaves us to guess what you would be able to accomplish broadcasting directly to your listeners. My guess is you are limited to a handful of listeners even at a fairly low bit rate like 64kbps. You can find a large selection of streaming server sellers in the SL marketplace by searching for "Shoutcast Streams"

This is a common problem. You don't give many specifics about your set up so my suggestions may not apply. I suppose Monti is "correct" that you 'should buy another PC to stream with' and you 'shouldn't use wireless.' Still there may be less drastic changes that could be helpful. Assuming you are using one pc running your viewer and mixx broadcaster: Give priority to your mixx application. While streaming make your mixx application the foreground with the viewer in background (possibly minimized) Reduce the bandwidth the viewer is using by lowering your Maximum Bandwidth & Texture Bandwidth in Network Preferences. Try reducing the bitrate your mixx is broadcasting at. Lower quality with no drop outs can be a winner Your streaming service may provide a log of events (such as dropped connections and reconnects) that could help explain your results.

Yes, I understand. If the issue was actively being worked by the LL I would read the Weekly News for a few months. I script but I'm not in the scripting business so a lazier approach works for me. It is nice to be able to ask here and get your updates of course.
  4. Thanks for that information. I was able to see SCR-382. I suppose I'll just have to abandon this for now. I'll check back after the roll out of the experience tools. I don't have the discipline necessary to read all the release notes for the next X years hoping to catch a mention of this issue.
  5. Limited as it is I'm doing some testing with llTeleportAgent. Then I notice there's an important issue. With this comment: "...can break any script in any attached object that contains a changed event." So I'd like to know the status of the bug. Also - some more detail would be helpful if it's still broken. While less detail is needed if it's fixed. But of course I can't see any of that because it's a secret. If anyone can reveal the secret I would appreciate it. http://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-4062

I can only hope that once we get eXperience Permissions, the Lab will suddenly remember why they spent all that money on Windlight in the first place. Then we'd get to see the settings changing in real time, like the weather, which was always the point of the thing. Thanks for that perspective Qie. Thank you to everyone who resonded.

However as LL were supposed to be developing it too, it was given a free pass, so it's not in violation. Thanks for that info. I think I eventually came across a reference to it in another forum.

In a sense it is no different than region windlight because YOU still get the option to chose whether or not to change YOUR view. All the setting is doing is allowing you to take advantage 'automatically' of a specific windlight setting. There is nothing that stops you from doing this any time any place manually at will. See this note: "5 seconds after someone using Phoenix enters a parcel, the viewer will prompt for permission to change their settings, or to ignore them. For you, the settings will auto-apply if the land is owned by you, the land is owned by a friend, the land is deeded to a group you are a member of, or you previously granted permissions to change to the same land owner on this or another parcel." LINK POPS I don't disagree with your view. Still the LL's view unclear. Here's a link that seems to say the LL sees it as a policy violation they choose to ignore. See the paragraph titled WindLight. http://blog.nalates.net/2012/02/25/sl-viewer-policy-follow-up/ Does this mean no other viewers will implement the feature because it's a maybe violation? So far I have a list of one supporting it. (two if you still count Phoenix) I don't think you can get any clearer than where Nalate's quotes Simon Linden: "Simon Linden explained it this way, “Let’s pick an example – let’s say you figured out a way to do 3D display in SL, but when you use it, everyone else sees garbage. That would be a violation. If you figured out how to do it without changing the world for everyone else, that’s great.” Parcel Windlight does not force the change on you, it allows you the option how you want to View things. The statement, "As it is now, it presents a conflict with the new policy changes," was Nalate's opinion and I think her conclusion, "That changes the shared experience of anyone reading the description," did not apply the principle correctly. The very fact that I can set for Midnight while you are set for Daylight means we are experiencing different things. Does that break the "shared experience" principle? We need to remember that at the time the policies were announced, many people were trying to poke holes in the policy. Also, there have been and are many things people do as workarounds in SL to accomplish things. LL does not prohibit them. They just don't guarantee them. Many of the uses of Invisiprims are a prime example of no guarantee. I'm trying to get a list of viewers that support the "feature." Current count: 1 ( or 2 counting Phoenix) I'm pretty confident that Singularity both doesn't support it and thinks implementing it would violate the TPV Policy. I agree that your view of the feature regarding the policy is reasonable.

  11. I guess it's not widely known. I searched around and found a May 2013 item on Singularity saying it would not be implemented.
  12. I was hanging out in a group chat yesterday when Parcel Windlight was mentioned. That's where the land has some text it the parcel description that viewers can use to adjust Windlight settings. I was pretty sure that several third party viewers support it. Then I was told it works for every viewer. So I questioned that and got told I was wrong and then ignored. LOL So I thought I'd ask here what viewers support the Parcel Windlight "feature." I know the LL viewer supports Region Windlight and I think most third party viewers do too. I know Firestorm supports Parcel Windlight. So far that's the only one on my list. ----------- It's a feature that allows visitors to a parcel to 'automatically' change to the lands windlight settings. Which would be very nice if it worked for all or even most visitors.

I think the land has been abandoned and the group disbanded. How do I find out for sure, and how can I purchase the property? You could try a support ticket. Perhaps 'Land & Region'/'Land Parcel issues'. Provide the details you're talking about and that you'd like to purchase if it becomes available.
  14. This may not be very helpful but - edit your object click 'texture' click ... the texture square (this will open the 'pick texture' dialog box) now click on your object - this will cause 'Multiple textures' to appear in the texture preview box of the 'pick texture' dialog box if the object has multiple textures. (so the feature has been 'enhanced' to require additional clicks before it appears, LOL) hmmm... on checking further, that behavior is not consistent over time. Perhaps it's more accurate to say sometimes it's there and sometimes it's not.
  15. If you use the FIRESTORM viewer: open the photo drop down the 'save as TGA' menu & select 'save as PNG' Unfortunate design choice by LL considering that the WEB pieces don't accept TGA. GIMP is free image editing software that can be used to save a TGA to various other formats.
