The OggStreamer Project started in Feb 2010 and it is intended to become a full OpenHardware/OpenSource ready-to-manufacture product. The main propose of this device is to connect remote radio-studios (or live-events) to a main radiostation over the Internet using an IceCast2-Server. So it is basically a hardware IceCast2 Upstream-Client. Additionally the OggStreamer can host an IceCast2-Mini-Server on its own – so that a limited number of listeners can directly connect to the Livestream with just with one click on the webinterface. The Project won the 2nd price in theLantronix XPortPro 2010 contest and I reinvested the pricemoney and many hundreds of hours to push the project further.
When starting this project I underestimated the effort from taking a project from prototype to product – but now as we are already on our way, I would like to complete that task. About 6 month ago a friend of mine took over the part of designing the PCB – and I am currently focusing on the MCAD design and the documentation. We are progressing, but there is still a lot of work on the Firmware-side. So I am searching for people willing to contribute to this project – if you are interested you can find my contacts on the ABOUT Page of the OggStreamer-Blog: http://oggstreamer.wordpress.com/
Contributions to this project can be manifold: Spreading the word; Developing SW; a monetary donation or last but not least you interest and attention to follow the development process on the blog.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
