I’ve been playing around with live streaming my game screen via twitch.tv, and I must say that I’ve quite enjoyed it. I was thinking of doing a non-stop ‘idle cam’ of my screen, but the data usage for my connection is through the roof, so I don’t want to use it all up – not to mention how boring that would be!
The other option is just to live stream when I’m engaging in my travels, so that it can be seen where I am and how I’m doing.
Of course, there’s always the risk that someone will try to use that to gather intel on my movements and location, so that they can prepare a trap for me, so that could be quite dangerous.
The final option, and the one that I’ll probably end up doing, is to just record my travels on the computer, edit the highlights, and share it via YouTube with a link in my ‘daily travel report’. That way the highlights of my travels can still be seen, but without providing live intel to someone who might want to make use of it.
But there are others of you out there who are already streaming their activities via twitch.tv, and I have some questions for you. 🙂
- How are you finding it?
- Do you think there’s a risk of providing intel that could be used against you?
- Has this happened to you?
- What tips do you have for someone like me who’s just started exploring this?
Your feedback would be welcome. And also any feedback about what you’d like to see from me when I do present the videos.
