Re: Recurring events with Church Webcast scheduler

Members of our stake simply use paysonworship.com each week to get the available broadcasts. We are still rolling it out to all of our buildings. We use the J-Tech devices which auto configure with the webcast system like the discontinued Teradek Vidiu Pros did. I would love to see a "Reoccurri...

Re: Church Webcast options for Apple TV or Roku?

We bought the Nvidia Shield to test out the Meetinghouse Webcast App. Once you install the app from the Google TV App store, you have to register it with the webcast system using a self-generated registration code. The App works extremely well, I'm really hoping that the church makes it available in...

Re: Which streaming platform to use for sacrament meeting?

For us personally - we use the webcast app for the following reasons 1) The church created and invested in this platform for a reason and are making changes to it to support Ward broadcasts (you already see "Sacrament Meeting" and "Bishopric" as options in scheduling meetings) 2)...

Re: Official guideline for sacrament before or after webcast?

Our stake received instruction from the Utah Area Presidency saying that the Sacrament Ordinance would be after the Sabbath Day Worship Service was over. From our stake's perspective, there is no longer a "Sacrament Meeting" - we have our Sacrament Ordinance and we have our Sabbath Worship...

Re: Suggestions Request for How to add Captions to Sacrament Meeting Webcast for Deaf/Hearing Impaired Members

Regarding multiple languages - we have started doing stake firesides that we need to broadcast in both English and Spanish. We schedule two broadcasts at the same time - one is English and one is Spanish. The English broadcast uses our teradek like normal, but for the Spanish we take the video and a...

Re: Automating OBS with the Webcast Portal

I was considering the OBS route - but then in another thread someone started posting custom firmware for J-Tech IPV encoders, which only cost $160. https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Supports-Protocol-Broadcast/dp/B0761X6L3C See thread: https://tech.churchofjesuschrist.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2...

Re: Simple Fully Automated worship webcast with Meetinghouse Webcast

For our stake we make the meetings public and we bought the domain paysonworship.com to make it easy for members to find/remember where they need to go in order to watch our Sabbath Day worship services. The domain cost $5 for the first year, which is fine since we don't know how long Sunday Ward Br...

Re: Simple Fully Automated worship webcast with Meetinghouse Webcast

@bretep - next Sunday please post a picture of your setup monitoring all 13 broadcasts :-)
Question: When J-Tech comes out with a new firmware - how are you going to take their updates and apply it to your custom firmware? Is that a headache?

Re: Simple Fully Automated worship webcast with Meetinghouse Webcast

bretep - I'm new to github - so forgive me for the newbie question. For your Firmware project, is there a place on github to put Enhancement Requests? Or do we just open "issues" ?

Are you wanting us to submit ideas on how to possibly improve the project?

Re: Simple Fully Automated worship webcast with Meetinghouse Webcast

If I had one request, it would be minor. Maybe the no-signal screen could say something like "Sacrament currently being administered" so if someone joined then, they'd know what's going on? I recommend leaving the "no HDMI signal message" as being generic (I love the simplicity ...
