ABYSS Broadcast Your Stream Successfully

Automates some streaming operations and provides feedback for volunteers

Automates most tasks on video and audio streaming.

Besides being a free/libre software, its goals are:

  • Move past command-line based streaming, by automating things.
  • Provide audio/video feedback for the volunteer at the station to monitor the streaming.

Its current features include:

  • Behave slightly differently according to user actions or loss of the feed.
  • GTK+ graphical user interface.
  • Ease to switch between testing mode -- for testing the audio and video chain without broadcasting -- to stream mode, which broadcasts the feeds.
  • In the event of main camera source failure, ABYSS changes the pipeline to fetch the video source from a backup USB webcam and then starts broadcasting again.
  • Each stream is actually recorded locally in three forms to allow easy post-processing: audio-only, raw-video, and audio-video.

Was used during LibrePlanet 2015 and 2016.

ABYSS was previously know as Libre-Streamer.
