Setting up a streaming TV show on the Internet is a pretty easy task. You grab a webcam, plug it into a PC, and use an Internet streaming site to host your amateur show. We’re stressing the amateur part because let’s face it, we’ve all seen enough YouTube stars to know the score.
But since this is Maximum PC, we’re kicking it up a notch and showing you how to become an online video producer. First off, we’re upping the number of cameras to two. Second, we’re going to show you how to stream your video live. By using Ustream’s (www.ustream.tv) online interface, you’ll be able to switch back and forth between your two cameras. Give your audience two different views of your head! Or more likely, use the second camera to feature a special guest or sidekick.
Find out how to be your own internet celebrity after the jump.
This week, we feature a lean and mean crew of Tom, Dave, and Andy to bring you the latest tech news and answer your questions. But fear not! Gordon makes a cameo appearance to provide you with the venomous bile you know and love in his world-renowned Rant of the Week!
Earlier this week, Tom, Will, and Dave had hands-on time with a load of upcoming PC titles. Unfortunately, Andy did not, so we clue him--and you--in on what games should be making a splash this year. As part of our gaming coverage, we also interview BioWare cofounder Ray Muzyka and get his thoughts on both PC gaming and how to handle software piracy.
Today, Tom, Will, Dave, and Andy talk about the latest Facebook exploits and preview how to make your own Internet radio station. Later in the show, Gordon rages against our own website, lazy officemates, and bad vocabulary choices. As always, we answer a load of your tech questions.
This week, Gordon, Andy, and Will talk about leaked internal Microsoft emails, AMD's new 4-GPU Crossfire X systems, hacking EAX5, Dave "The Console Defender" Murphy. Then, we take a brief detour into the lab before answering a ton of reader questions!
This week, Will, Gordon, Dave, and new producer Andy talk about all the
crazy things going on in Maximum PC's epic lab, including why we frown
at Vista, Cooler Master's big new product line, and Will's obsession
with getting smoked by the computer in real-time space strategy games.
This week, Dave, Will, Gordon, and Jeremy listen to Will's horrid attempts at wookie noises,
send off their favorite podcast producer with a sad series of goodbyes
and tears, and talk about the ramifications of Microsoft's potential
Yahoo acquisition. All this, and a report from the Lab, answers for a
ton of reader mail questions, a shout-out to our fourth and fifth
female listeners (hi!), and Gordon's extra-saucy rant of the week!
This week, Tom, Dave, Will, Gordon, and Jeremy explain how you can play
TF2 and other games with the Maximum PC staff, delve into the future of
digital media distribution, tell you how you can win some gear from the
Maximum PC prize vault, and take a trip to the Lab. Also this week, the
never-ending rain has made Gordon particularly cantankerous, so brace
yourselves for an especially surly rant.
CES is over, and what better way to celebrate then this, the big 50th
edition of the Maximum PC Pocdast! This week, Dave, Will, Gordon, and
Jeremy discuss all the awesome stuff they saw (or heard other saw) at
the big trade show, Will's huge rig-building victory at CES, and what
the heck happened during last week's podcast! We don't even answer any
tech questions this week, it's that news-heavy of a show!
