BROADCASTING TO FACEBOOK FROM CHROME, FIREFOX & OPERA - IT'S ON THE CARDS !!!

Broadcasting from the browser is something thought pretty much impossible! But as the saying goes, "where their is a will there is a way"!

From humble beginnings back in 2014, here we are are in 2016 with a great new way to start broadcasting to social media.

In 2014, I became fascinated in a new potential revolution to browsing and how this was likely to transform the way we used our browser. Along came WebRTC, a fantastic way to get video in real time from your browser to others on the internet. We started to work on transforming Easylife.com a domain we have traditionally used for selling electrical products to basic WebRTC functions (and selling products).

In the summer of 2015, I was invited to a Google seminar in London UK explaining some of the tremendous benefits this new exciting technology. I was riveted, although I am no real programmer I did my best to follow all that was going on. A vision that one day everything would run in the browser, never a need to download an app, just visit a site. If only my vision was a reality now. But hay, I still believe it will happen one day.

Some amazing programmers were posting free-to-use code. The first to catch our attention was Henrik Joreteg from WA, I can't remember now but I'm pretty sure it took us a few hours to get it on the server and then a month to get it all going and we could never figure out why big chucks of code seemed not to be addressed, but hay ho, that was some time ago and no doubt things have got better. Of course, its highly likely we missed something but going bald through pulling our hair out was defiantly on the cards.

I was then struck by a guy in Pakistan, Muaz Khan has become a bit famous in our office. This guy was banging out code that we just couldn't keep up with and of notable significance was the Chrome Plug-in to get grabbing the screen. But being part of the browser it still to this day doesn't work as fast as our Windows system plug-in, alas I'm convinced it is a solid alternative and certainly very flexible and we'll be updating our extension in the next few weeks.

In May 2016 we had created a number of services, pretty much all free of charge using many experimental tasks within browsers, it became common place to find the console reporting warnings regarding obsolete processes, but to be honest this has all pretty much calmed down in recent months. Some processes such as Whammy.js which we used for recording have seemingly been rendered useless just in the past 3 weeks or so but not without alternatives.

Audio API had caught our imagination back in 2014 when we created what we are sure was the first 10 band graphic equaliser playing any radio station from Shoutcast - amazing it could adjust each band by an amazing 18dB, and so amazing achievements are still under way with browser development. Whilst it only ever worked in Chrome I'm sure it will one day work in Firefox, it's well worth a revisit actually if only to solve BiquadFilterType errors that are responsible for all the graphic equaliser functions.. It's here..And it's fun :) http://digisender.tv/media-radio/ and.. it's on the cards.

As we near our roll-out of the Broadcast to Facebook Service expected within just a few days, audio is one issue that we face now and will spend some time on this over the next week. Getting Stereo Audio from Firefox seems possible with getUserMedia but only in the past 4 weeks, Chrome is another issue so our back-up plan may well kick-in.

Broadcasting directly from the browser is now a reality but the hurdles have been tremendous and to blunt WebRTC for this task has been put on the back-burner as we simply grapple with the streams at their raw level ourselves.

Easylife.com launches it's 'LIVE' service to social media this week and we are all so excited. Our Free version includes basic camera switching functions but beware of cheap web cams, they show their true colours (in more ways than one) when you try to use them for broadcasting. Switching cameras as you broadcast live whilst performing in a band, using for CCTV viewing in Facebook or just updating your friends from your laptop - it's the future in your browser. Look out for new features on the horizon: HD Broadcasting, POD Casting, CCTV Broadcasting, Support for IP Streams (a must for us as this takes the processing power away from your computer). We are just hours away!!

Please share in our developments by visiting the page and taking a look for yourself - you can start broadcasting to Facebook LIVE this week and from within your browser using Windows. Visit easylife.com and message us back - we want to hear your thoughts.

Visions into the future with Easylife.com

Fed-up with dodgy webcams that are not all they claim to be. On-line auction sites are full of them. We purchased some test samples, one claiming to be 1080p and 0.01 Lux was in fact 640 x 480 and 10 Lux - this is the image!

The XDS series is capable of transmitting any connected HDMI source device, in any resolution up to HD 1080p. It works over an existing Wi-Fi connection, so anywhere in your home that you can get Wi-Fi, you can use the XDS LAN Pro. You can also control the connected device, via the included DigiEye remote relay kit.

Because the DigiSender XDS LAN Pro features a customized Android OS, it also has the benefit of upgrading both of your TV’s to smart TV’s with 4K services. This includes access to the Play Store, Catch-up TV and video on demand services.
