NSM Live Podcast (Beta)
I think it was around February of this year, when I last proposed building a full replacement for BlogTalk Radio, only it wasn't going to be shitty like BlogTalk, but rather modern – powerful and feature-rich, unlike what most WN/NS folk are accustomed to. At minimum, it needed to sound and perform better (in this case double) that of BlogTalk. And since I hadn't developed new code for live streaming audio in quite some time, maybe 20 years, I thought it would be best to learn some of the latest languages and do it the modern way, which I have done.
This required learning OCaml (a general-purpose, industrial-strength programming language, with an emphasis on expressiveness and security) which thankfully, didn't take me too long. 🙂 The player above is an unstyled, beta test demonstration of what I've been working on. Give it a listen and tell me what you think below. Note that this player will be short-lived. I intend to develop a fully styled deployment for our new podcast feature on this site, to go along with our vodcast offering.
I welcome suggestions on how this should be styled!
I've also been toying around with this idea in the sandbox for months now.
