Maintenance: Saturday, February 17

in VIMM.TV - Streaming2 months ago

Hey there! It's @ddrfr33k. I received word from @chiren that we need to take Vimm offline for a bit on Saturday to make some updates. Here's what you need to know:

  • The site will be offline starting at 8:00 EST (12:00 CET)
  • We anticipate the maintenance will take around an hour or so. If it goes longer, we will make an announcement on the discord to let you know.
  • The stream URL is going to change. The old stream key looked like this:
(username)?key=XXXXXXXXXXX

The new stream key will look like this:

(username)?pass=XXXXXXXXXXX

Please make sure you update your stream settings in your streaming software after the maintenance concludes.

Why are we doing this?

We are changing our back end infrastructure and using a new stremaing tech. AV1, specifically. In testing, we found we could get a 1.5 second delay between broadcast and the Vimm website. It's also much less resource intensive, and makes it easier for us to add other features in the future. New features are good, no?

That's all for this update, please don't panic when things go down on Saturday. We got this!
