I love followup. As Resident Enlightenment Manager, one of my prime responsibilities is to share useful + fun (usefun!) info that helps solve your problems and makes your Second Life® smoother… and overall moar awesome.
Recently, I conducted a Q&A session where I had an opportunity to directly answer many of your questions — the best part of this may’ve been that a number of enthusiastic Second Lifers were ALL TOO HAPPY to share their expertise.
I openly wondered how to play your own radio station inworld without doing a live stream, and topmate suggested MediaMaster. Thanx to that suggestion, I was able to spread the info forward, and since I’ve been asked it an awful lot over the ages, it deserves its own blog post.
Even better, after recommending MediaMaster to Irish gent Hotspur O’Toole, he’s created his own well-illustrated tutorial, titled “How to Stream your Own Radio Station into a Second Life Parcel using Media Master”. Basically, you upload music from your hard drive, organize it, then use a stream URL on your land parcel. Click on through and follow the steps, and get your groove on!
Do keep in mind that while this is a great tool, it’s a 3rd-party service so Linden Lab doesn’t support it. Nevertheless, continuing to integrate external proggies to work with Second Life kicks prim buttocks.
Done an exceptional tutorial of your own? Have favorites you want to highlight? Share it in the comments! Knowing may be half the battle (as GI Joe sez), but nothing gets known without being shared.
