Thursday, as you may be aware, is when I host my “An Evening with” livestream. It’s a 90 ‘show’ where I sit in front of the camera and hope someone joins me. 🙂
Every week is open to my “Gang”- the collection of fellow model makers I have gathered around me so I can get credit for their awesome work. Also invited are my patrons at the “Geek” level and above. And every month on the last Thursday I throw the doors open to everyone. I do enjoy those chances to get to know you a little more. None of you look or sound like I imagine from your log-in names!
This week is a little different as today is the last day Hangouts on air is meant to be running. It’s the software I (and others) use to host multiple people in a stream. We have found an alternative, but it means a small change if you want to join from a mobile device.
In Hangouts, you got a link to join a stream. This launched the Hangouts app and connected you. The only difference now is you won’t launch the hangouts app, you need a new one.
The software I plan on using is called Jitsi. The app you will need is called ‘Jitsi Meet’ and is available on iOS and android. You will need to download and install it before joining.
I am running tomorrow as a regular “Gang and Patrons” night, but the following week, the 8th August, is going to be a bonus “An Evening with Everyone” stream. So you have a week to get yourself sorted!
