Middle-earth Network now has a video stream and CSTM has moved from playing on the MEN Radio station to their new TV format. We’re new at this and wanted to make the changes clear as well as give you a place to give us your ideas for the new format.
What is Changing?
The only thing changing is the live show format. We are moving from audio only feed to a video feed.
The downloaded podcast is not changing at all. It will continue to be posted on Sunday evening as an audio download through the same channels you currently getting it.
How do I listen live / participate?
Watching the Video Stream
We have embedded the live stream video to our web site at http://casualstrolltomordor.com/live/.
All you need to do is visit that site and hit play. When our show starts, it should start up (sometimes a refresh is required).
Joining Live Chat
For chat we are not using livestream’s chat (that is why a livestream account is not required).
We are using the chat rooms provided by the MEN site. A Middle-earth Network account is required if you want to use the chat rooms. Simply log in and it should be good for you to start using.
The chat room is embedded on the same live page as the video stream. http://casualstrolltomordor.com/live/
Joining us In-Game
Since we now have a video element and you can join us on Landroval to see yourself on the live stream and join us in game while we live broadcast!
We have been announcing the location of these sort of last minute and we’d like to get more organized with this whole dealie but we need some help.
Give Us Your Suggestions
The new video stream is brand new for us and honestly, we’re not super awesome adding a new third channel to monitor during the live show so we are looking for your suggestions on how to improve and make it fun!
What sort of things can we do in-game together that would make the in-game gathering a fun party event each week?
Keep in mind we want to keep the location to places where players of all levels can get to with relative safety but we want to have fun at the same time!
Let us know your ideas. Even if your idea doesn’t involve a party – like you want to see Merric die in a skirmish while trying to carry a conversation with me – we want to hear all your ideas!
We are eager to take this new outlet we’ve been given and make it a solid piece of the CSTM live show!
