It’s been a while since I forgot to hit the 🔴 Record button so it was bound to happen eventually! So… what do?
Okay, I could simply say, “oh, well, I guess you should have been there.” I mean, that’s still a possibility but maybe I can actually try to use…
Okay… so, Twitch keeps recordings of my latest shows. Maybe I can somehow get it from there? Okay, yeah, looks good, it’s giving me a 2.9 GiB video file. It even has audio in rather decent quality (though it has been reencoded)… but wait.
The gaps are from where Twitch has muted the audio because of copyright-protected tracks. I can kind of live with Twitch muting those when I publish the video but when I download it for private use I do expect to get the original, unmuted audio.
Okay… so, Twitch can also export the video to YouTube. Maybe, seeing that YouTube has all its own shit to deal with copyright-protected material, Twitch will actually export the original audio to YouTube? Alright, let’s check… oh, wait, YouTube first needs to process my video…
[30 minutes later…]
Okay… so, YouTube also only gets the muted audio from Twitch. Plus due to the low resolution of my video (I’m only streaming at 720p) YouTube has turned my video into pixel mush and my audio into a recording made inside a trash can (96 kbps AAC).
I guess you should have been there after all.
The next show will happen on Wednesday, February 22, at 19:00 CET/UTC+1. (And maybe I’ll even press the Record button!)
Wow, January has passed like a flash, that sure didn’t take long!
We had a new remix of a Rank 1 track that I have been looking forward to since I started prepping this show, we had a new single by Kenny Palmer, and some Sam Laxton to top it off. I enjoyed this show very much, and now you can, too:
The next show will happen on Wednesday, February 8, at 19:00 CET/UTC+1.
