  1. Nicecast works very well. I have used iTunes, Ultramixer VirtualDJ and Mixxx for music sources. If you want to talk over the music, Nicecast offers a voiceover ducking feature that drops the music level so your voice can be heard (but if you use iTunes and pause the music, all audio stops including voiceover, so you must play music continuously. I haven't tried that with ultramixer, VirtualDJ or Mixxx). I use a Griffin iMic USB audio interface so i can route Ultramixer, VirtualDJ or Mixxx out and into an external audio mixer (I use a Sampson MDR6 - $99) to mix voice over audio from more than one source, like a CD player or another computer. The mixer feeds the computer through the Griffin iMic and feeds Nicecast. This setup works very well. If also use two computer, one for SL and one for music, so an SL crash doesn't affect the music.
  2. That's just it - in VWR 1 it only took ONE MOUSE CLICK to play only the parcel audio stream and no other media streams. In VWR 2 it takes several mouse clicks in addition to the mouse hover to accomplish the same thing. One vs. several-a step forward?
  3. What do you mean get used to superior interfaces? I can't get used to something that doesn't work!!
  4. One of my avatar friends is a female avatar who refuses to use voice. She is always accused of being a male in RL because of that. She has a good reason not to use voice - it breaks the "wall" between her RL and her fantasy SL. Her avatar certainly doesn't look "male created" so I believe her.
  5. Looks like many people were NOT running fine with VWR 2: https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/EXP-687 http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/DNS-PROBLEMS/qaq-p/838759/comment-id/6440#M6440 https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-25607 https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-25626 https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/EXP-772 https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-24868 The Google DNS Server "workaround" solved my problem. LL mentions that as a "workaround". Where is the fix?
  6. WOW! This seems to have done the trick. I didn't get the DNS not resolving message, I got the message that something had gone wrong. I added the two DNS servers in System Preferences and, voila!, I logged in, and the other viewers weren't as laggy, either. Funny that the Lindens on JIRA duty don't talk to each other, especially about Mac problems.
  7. What "more" button? I see one button that starts ALL media and one button that will stop audio streaming but leave all other media playing. I saw a store one time that had almost a dozen different prims playing shared media, all at once, plus an audio media stream, all started by that one "play" button. Never went back and didn't spend any L$ there.
  8. Does VWR 2 need that much more bandwidth than any other viewer? VWR 2 is the only viewer that won't log in.
  9. Yeah, the suggestion from Linden Labs was "Check your local network". Three different computers could log in with every viewer except LL VWR 2. I even connect my "main SL" computer directly to my modem, bypassing my router with no change in results. Sounds to me like my local network is good and VWR 2 is bad.
  10. Do ya think it could be because I abandoned my mainland and dropped my Premium membership back in April??
  11. I am comparing one computer 's ability now compared to about five weeks ago. It used to run any viewer I downloaded, even two at a time. After deleting ALL viewers and reinstalling one at a time, I can not run VWR 2. And I have tried the last four releases of VWR 2.
  12. VWR 2.8.3, 2.8.2, 2.8.1 and 2.8.0 have recently failed to log in any of my avatars. I have been able to log in with VWR 1.23, Snowglobe, Kirsten's, Phoenix, firestorm, Rainbow and OnRez. My BRAND NEW computer will not log in with VWR 2. I am fed up. https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-26560 http://jira.phoenixviewer.com/browse/SUP-4586 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E72vAPtkWA
