View Full Version : UU Open Mic?

Just a quick survey, how many people would be down for an open mic over the internet using mogulus?

All you need is a webcam, mic, high speed internet, and a mogulus (http://www.mogulus.com/) account.

Mogulus allows us to "punch in" feeds from anyone logged into our account. So everyone watching only needs to tune into one video player. We can go down the line and punch in anyone who wants go perform.

It'll be just like a real open mic but just over the internet.

I just thought of the idea at work today. Who'd be down for participating?

*update*
March 22 2008 - 4pm HST (7pm PST)

Performers please try to log on at least 30 minutes - 1 hour prior to 4 so we can get everyone set up and do quick mic checks. Thanks.

Open Mic will be broadcasted with Mogulus on the Ukulele Underground Channel. http://www.mogulus.com/ukuleleunderground

If Mogulus bogs out, backups will be Ustream and Skype

List of People who were interested in playing in the openmic. When we get 10 we'll set a date and time.

03-05-2008, 07:12 AM
Alright I think we got enough people to try this out.

I think the best time to try and do this where everyone will not be up too late is around 4:00pm Hawaii time. That's 7:00pm West Coast, 10:00pm East Coast, 9:00 pm in Chicago. I think noon in Guam, and 1:00pm in Sydney. Not sure, if you guys use daylight savings. We don't in Hawaii.

Give or take an hour does that time work for everyone?

As far as Day, it will need to be either a Saturday or Sunday because I would need to work the board, and I usually don't get off work until 5-6.

How does March 22, around 4:00pm Hawaii Time sound for everyone?

03-05-2008, 07:19 AM
I think the best time to try and do this where everyone will not be up too late is around 4:00pm Hawaii time. That's 6:00pm West Coast, 9:00pm East Coast, Noon in Guam, and 1:00pm in Sydney.

Is that compensating for Daylight Saving Time, which starts on 9 March (in the US)? Hawaii doesn't participate, right? So West Coast will will be 7pm, etc.

DOH. You are right!

So Correct, West Coast would be 7:00pm, East Coast would be 10:00pm.

Does Guam and Australia participate in DST?

Ok, can everyone who wants to participate sign up for a mogulus (http://www.mogulus.com) account if you haven't already done so?

It's free.

Once you have your account, post your username here, and I'll add you to the list of "Team members" for the UU account. That way you can share your video stream with our player.

Thanks everybody, this is going to be fun!

Yeah we definitely need to do a test run. It's pretty confusing.

We also should maybe set a back up service just in case mogulus fails us. Justin.tv has a great streaming service but as you guys saw with the last live stream, theres always some a**hole who tries to ruin the fun by saying stupid stuff. I don't want to expose you guys to that stuff if you're playing so maybe ustream.tv as the back up?

i jus realized how easy it would be to do a open mic cuz of all the cue vid features with mogulus, but it really is kinda slow. How's Ustream.tv is it the same concept of mogulus cuz i didnt really bother signing up until we are for sure gonna use it or use it as back up.

i just searched around on it, and there 30 people in one skypecast. And like 8 people speaking simultaneously.
Ok *UPDATE* That same chat room has 46 people now, the only problem is i made a skypecast for a test, but i'm running into some difficulties, it won't let me into my own room...

http://www.skype.com/help/guides/skypecasts.html Says 100 people can join in one room

my webcam should be in around the 11th.

and ustream sounds like a good idea. i was chatting with a friend of mine who was broadcasting from ustream...and its really good...very little lag time.

You know I was thinking for the people that are singing and playing for the open mic, you guys should list what songs u are singing so that no one prepares to sing the same song u chose. Mine is either up on the roof, or colors everywhere.

edit by nukedoc: i just moved your post here since its still pertinent to the thread.

NukeDOC

mogulus: nukedoc619

skype: havent made an account yet.

note to all that are participating. once you get signed up, make sure you familiarize yourself with the controls. its not exactly plug and play sometimes. you have to make sure your settings are right. so open up a new window with your address and you will be able to see if you are actually broadcasting or not.

NukeDOC
03-12-2008, 03:10 PM
along the lines of UJ's post, how many songs are we going to get to do? usually, open mics let you do 2 songs, or a certain time limit. so might i suggest a 2 song limit? if you only have one, then no prob. but no more than two.

i figure that gives about 10 minutes give or take for each performer, including the song and the prep time to get their broadcast underway.

we could use a "random number generator" online...
http://www.random.org/integers/
... to basically figure out who goes first. honor system comes in to effect here.
set to generate 1 number
value between 1 and 1000
format in 1 column
and hit "get numbers" and it will give you a random number

lowest number goes first. and just post up here.
i got 635

i see no reason why not. pick two numbers. one for him and one for you. since dave and bugoy had to step out, theres open space... and so another act that would be hard to follow. hahaha

Since I don't have a webcam (nor a fast computer nor a particularly fast connection :( ) I can't participate but I'm gonna throw in my 2 cents worth here anyways...

Don't worry overmuch about doing the same song as someone else. If everybody did the same tune off of the same chord sheets they'd turn out different. Everybody's different right? They got different takes on things, different styles, etc.

Ukulele Cosmos does (or at least did, I haven't been there in a while) a thing where everybody recorded their version of the same tune ("Song of the Month" or something) and you'd be amazed at all the variation. It was very cool.

I'm definitely going to try to tune in when you guys perform on the open mic, but I'm concerned that the video and audio feed may not come through for me... like the last time when aldrine and ryan had a jam session I could barely see what was going on. I'm not sure if it was my computer's slow speed or my unreliable internet.

Someone please, for the love of ukulele, tell me that this can be recorded!! :o

yeah it's probably the state of your hardware on ur computer which also contributes to ur loss off internet connection. mogulus takes a lot of memory from ur comp.

Ok Here are the instructions for those performing tomorrow.

When logging into mogulus use your regular login and password but instead of entering your channel in the channel box enter

ukuleleunderground

This will log you into our channel and from there I can switch to any one of your cameras instantly. The viewers watching will only need to tune into one player.

I'll be online in mogulus from now for about 1 hour - 2 hours if anyone performing wants to try it out and do a mic check.

Anyone who wants to watch just tune into

Click, "Enter Mogulus Studio," and you should see a window like this:

Control-click (right-click on PC) anywhere in the window and choose "Settings...":

Find your camera in the drop down menu next to your source in the source list on the left:

http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/8247/camsourceuj4.jpg

Mine was, "USB Video..." but just keep trying the options until you see yourself in the little window like this:

http://img296.imageshack.us/img296/6056/sourceslk4.jpg

Now, you have to turn off the audio in the monitor section, so there won't be echo when you broadcast. It's over on the right upper half of the window, like so:

http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/595/monitorsv0.jpg

Just slide the slider over until it says, "off."

You're ready to broadcast! Hooray.

You should probably open up a new browser window and go to:

http://mogulus.com/ukuleleunderground

So you can join in the chat and be retarded like us. :P

If there's anything wrong with my instructions, just let me know and I'll edit them.

Peace! I'm excited! Should be lots of fun!
