#44 TF2 Blog: "The Meet Your Match Update is Coming" in TF2 General Discussion

I love how they had to explicitly state that Competitive allows all nine classes.

Edit: Also, finally Sunshine!

#9 salamancer was wrong in The Dumpster

In any case, I think we can all agree that Salamancer should never pay in full to send NA teams to Insomnia LANs ever again.

#10 Prec Problem in Q/A Help
DavidTheWinThe demos should still be playable if you rename them to demoname.bsp from demoname.jpg

Edit: unless they actually are images and not demos saved with the wrong filetype

demoname.dem, actually. demoname.bsp would be a map.

#20 tftv twitch reruns? in TF2 General Discussion
DavidTheWin-leeDavid, my dude its just an idea no one HAS to do it but if anyone is interested maybe they could get in touch with TF.TV to try to make it happen...
And I'm explaining why it isn't practical at the moment.

Would it be practical to have maybe a once-a-week replay of an old match? What about replays of old finals/LANs for hype (such as replaying matches from an old ESEA Final to hype an upcoming ESEA Final, or replaying i55 to hype up i58)?

Would it be possible to edit out pauses and delays, or would it still take a while even for a more limited selection of VODs? In my mind I'm envisioning just cutting off the sections that aren't needed, but it's probably much more complex than that.

Who is going to provide (at minimum) $5-600 for this computer?
hookyAlso, it would be a great idea to go back and edit the videos to remove delays and pauses, and also for time. The replays should be on a consistent time schedule so they don't get cut off by live content.
Who is going to spend the tens of hours required to edit hundreds of hours of VODs? Who is going to spend the time making sure the schedule is adhered to when they might not be at the PC when required?

Good points. I was really only speaking theoretically. Obviously actual situations will require some (or a lot) of thinking.

#16 tftv twitch reruns? in TF2 General Discussion
DavidTheWinIt's not hard to just stream a VOD, I have most of everything I've streamed going back to about season 20. The problem is you need a machine dedicated to just streaming that content because if it's streaming you can't really do anything else with it that would make any noise that would show on the stream and you'd be dedicating around 4mb/s of upload to the task as well as a decent amount of cpu usage that contributes to power bills when it's running 24/7. There's also the issue of stopping the stream when it comes to live casts. Easy enough in a studio but if it's running off some guy's PC in his house and he's not in a position to be able to do it then you're shit out of luck.

Twitch have implemented a feature called playlists (I think it's still in beta) where you can pick a playlist of old twitch vods to play back. Our problem is a lot of these get muted and we'd have to highlight them every time to get the right portion of a cast.

It's a lot of work when you're a bunch of people doing it as a hobby. The best we can get at the moment is automated hosting of other twitch channels to make sure there's always some content at http://twitch.tv/teamfortresstv

Really good points, gonna respond to them.

1. Yes, a dedicated streaming PC is a must, as is the PC being located in a place where there's a lot of upload bandwidth available (anyone here have Google Fiber?) and doesn't mind having high electricity bills. So while this way could happen, it doesn't seem likely. Probably should just wait to see if we can get to the point where TFTV or another casting org can get to the point where there could be a studio to handle all of this (not likely unless comp sees a massive boost after MM).

2. Didn't know about this! This is a really good idea. One way you could get around this is by doing manual replays. If a match is at least decent, it could be edited and manually replayed sometime in the next few days. I'd say later that day or the next day but I don't know how long it would take to edit the VOD. During the off-season, great old matches could be edited and replayed as well. As more and more VODs are replayed, you can build up a playlist of VODs and put it on repeat. VODs not being saved complicates this a little, but as long as it's done ASAP after the initial replay it should be good.

3. This sounds great on paper, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea. A pre-approved list of streamers could work, but then you get the problem of none of those streamers streaming at a certain time. Also, what if they switch to another game?

#12 tftv twitch reruns? in TF2 General Discussion

I would assume all that's needed is a dedicated streaming PC and a program to play videos in, and possibly shuffle them (VLC can randomly play videos, but it randomly selects a video each time rather than just shuffling the playlist. This may not be the best idea, but a plugin or another program would work).

Also, it would be a great idea to go back and edit the videos to remove delays and pauses, and also for time. The replays should be on a consistent time schedule so they don't get cut off by live content. However, this doesn't have to be done immediately or at all, it's just a suggestion.

Now, if it needs to be seamless, then you need to have a studio. It can't be seamless using multiple computers, at least not with OBS.
