Mac and Ustream - Updated "How To"

Peggy and I have started to review the Mac pages in the Webcasting Book. I created a screencast about how I set up for streaming in Ustream. Just realized now, I didn't show starting a skype call before streaming. I'm sure there's more that could be changed/added/deleted. Please leave your comments here for us to create a better screencast.


 

Recording and Broadcasting with Nicecast, Skype and a Mac

Listen in to Lee Baber and Derrall's webcast audio tutorial explaining how to set- up your Mac for broadcasting and recording using Nicecast, Skype, and Sound Preferences. Both usb headsets and usb mics are addressed. 

Recording Skype call (two sides)

After some frustration with what I thought were setting issues, Lee B helped me out and it turns out my dual 1/8th inch plug headset wasn't going to work for this. I went to the local Radio Shack and ended up with a Logitec 250 USB headset, and things went MUCH smoother! I figured I'd post the settings here that worked, since they are a little different from Lee's screencast since she's using other software.

System prefs : Sound : output and input set to Logitec USB

Mac Settings for recording telephony with Audio Hijack Pro

So, I had trouble following the settings for recording two sides of a telephony call (skype), so once I found settings that worked, I figured I'd post them here for anyone else who might need them. 

 (Using a Logitec 250 USB headset)

System prefs : Sound : output and input set to Logitec USB

Audio Hijack settings : Source type: Skype (it'll restart skype if you have it open)

Skype prefs : output and input set to Logitec USB 

None of this covers the audio specs - I'll be doing editing in Audacity to get those set correctly.

Bit rate 64 settings using a Mac

I am feeling little challenged - something that I am sure will be a consistent phenomena for the next 6 weeks. Learning the concept in "windowspeak" and then translating to "macspeak is a bit of a learning curve. I found the method to set a bit rate of 64 for the Mac version of Audacity is established in Audacity preferences> File Format> MP3 Export Setup then the drop down menu> 64. If I have posted this entry twice - it maybe the beginning of that head knocking thing I heard about.
