  1. Hi Wulfie! I'm working on a project with a group of participants that will meet in SL to attend weekly sessions. At the end of the sessions we do a quick activity (2-5 minutes). For two of the sessions, we are trying to do a relaxation exercise similar to guided meditation. The ideal situation would be a video. There are a lot of short videos on youtube that would work, but the problem with prim media as you mentioned is the audio and video isn't synchronous. I do plan on using prim media if a participant of the group would like to go back independently in a different region of the island. They can control and pause the video as they wish. We could always ask a facilitator of the group to simply play audio and narrate on her mic, but I am hopeful I can find a way to do this using the tools available in SL (although based on responses I may be a bit naive lol). My next step is to investigate the livestream as Xiija mentioned in the previous response.
  2. Thanks for the suggestions and providing the links Xiija! I'll take a look.
  3. Hello everyone, reposting in this section as recommended from a different user. I'm currently trying to set up a room where audio (ideally video) can be played to a group of approximately less than 15. Just in like in real life, I'd like to be able to use an avatar to play a video/track to a group of people, pause it if needed, but essentially let it play on until the end of the track/video is completed. I did some research, but am struggling to find something that would work. I've tried media on a prim - Where I split up the audio of a music track into 10-second intervals using Audicity (3rd party software) and used a script that loops the audio sequentially until the track finishes playing out. I was hopeful using this route, unfortunately, the track isn't consistent. The track plays out, but the sequence in between the 10-second intervals is not consistent, pauses, or is out of sync and makes it very distracting (obvious it is chopped up). I also tried using media on a prim, where I placed an embedded url from youtube and made the prim into a nice movie screen. This will work, but when I tried it out with other users, they do not see the same thing I see at the same time or there is a delay. I found another option using a media texture (not sure if that is the current term), displaying a specific texture on a side of a prim, where it will show the source of audio/media wherever that specific texture is displayed throughout a parcel of land. I just didn't have any luck with this one! :-( Lastly, I did find some information about possibly using winamp with a shoutcast DSP plugin???? Not sure exactly how to do this, but its next on my list to try out. I've been trying to follow tutorials on youtube to teach myself but am struggling. Based on the age of the videos (over 6 - 9 years old), my guess is that there are different options or these are no longer the best practices as they have been replaced with different alternatives? My next step is pursuing the winamp /shoucast DSP plugin, but I'm not sure if it will only allow me to play media from their online radio stations and not let me choose a specific track. Does anybody have any ideas or different options that may be helpful? Please send them my way and thanks in advance! :-)
  4. Yes, I think that option isn't going to work. I've used Audacity and played with different lengths of sound bites (10, 9, 9.2,9.5) as well as several scripts both free and paid. It didn't occur to me that my region may have lag. Oh well, I'll try posting in the scripting section and will pursue Winamp and the Shoutcast DSP plugin. Thanks again!
