We are pleased to announce that AVSIM will be bringing online live streaming video within the next 30 to 45 days. AVSIM will be providing a “channels” based system that allows any community member to establish a streaming video channel on either Justin.tv or Twitch.tv and then be fed into the AVSIM system’s video line up. Think of it as AVSIM providing the services of a Comcast, Direct TV, Sky TV or the Dish Network as examples. The AVSIM channel system will indicate to the viewer which channels are active and not, chat while watching and more. We will provide the channels and you can pick your favorite while participating in the forums or elsewhere within AVSIM. Unlike the basic Justin and Twitch services themselves, AVSIM will be acting as an aggregation and one-stop service for all flight simulation live stream channels. Twitch.tv will allow in-game streaming so that group flights, RTW races, and VATSIM and IVAO events, can be fed live to all viewers on AVSIM from within the broadcaster’s flight simulator. Justin.tv will allow broadcasters to set up channels that are not in-game. For example; virtual airline news channels, community news, how to channels such as “Learn to paint your aircraft”, “learn to create scenery”, “learn the FMC”, etc. We will be adding more channel sources as we further develop the system. Please stay tuned. We will post more as this system comes closer to launch.
We recently announced that we were bringing a live streaming video aggregation system online. We are pleased to say that it is now up and running. Currently, the system only accepts videos from Twitch.tv, but API's are being added to accept videos from Justin.tv and others in the near future. In its current state, it is pretty straight forward system and easy to use by both viewers and video stream owners. The benefit of the AVSIM Video System is that it provides a focused source for all video streams having to do with flight simulation and the many related subjects within the hobby. We currently have one live stream FS topic running and some demo videos to view. If you are a live streaming owner and a flight simulation enthusiast, we encourage you to place your stream into the AVSIM System. If you are a virtual airline, an IVAO or VATSIM organization and would like to showcase news and events, this is a great way to do so to the many members of the AVSIM Community. Would like to broadcast training video, "how to", specialty broadcasts like the different types of navigation and techniques, flying techniques, etc., we encourage you to explore the live streaming video format and the AVSIM live streaming system. You can access the Live Video System from the menu item above, or by clicking here. The Streaming Video System also has a forum associated with it where every video is supported by it's own forum topic for users to discuss the stream and its content. You can access that forum here.
