[settings] OBS settings for streaming with not so great internet

OBS Low Internet Settings

These were provided to me by @feross at some point and then I tweaked them to work with slow internet, i.e. 1MBPS up.

I'm posting the the screenshots of those settings in the comments and I added two files that I found via File/Show Profile Folder

A list of search and replace unix commands to help make a node repository 'standard' compliant

The standard code style linter is a great tool by Feross - check it out!

Remove trailing semicolons:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/;$//' {} \;

Ensure space between function and opening bracket:

We Need An Automated Module Build System

We Need An Automated Module Build System

First, please read On Maintaining a Native Node Module

Problem: There is no standard way to build + distribute prebuilt binaries for node modules with native addons (e.g. C++ bindings).

There's a thing called NODE_MODULE_VERSION which is used to know if a native module was compiled for the correct version + flavor of node. If you are trying to load something compiled for e.g. iojs from February 2015 into node from March 2014 you will get an error something like Error: Module version mismatch. Expected 11, got 42. when you try and run your program. node uses numbers from 10 going up, and iojs uses numbers from 40 going up. The NODE_MODULE_VERSION gets bumped usually when V8 is upgraded, but sometimes for other reasons. It also gets even more complicated when you start talking about runtimes like Electron or Node-Webkit, but I won't get into that here. To my knowledge there is n

Encoding video for the web

Encoding Video


Install FFmpeg with homebrew. You'll need to install it with a couple flags for webm and the AAC audio codec.

brew install ffmpeg --with-libvpx --with-libvorbis --with-fdk-aac --with-opus

NOTE I'm trying to find the most optimal fav/touch icon setup for my use-cases. Nothing new here. Read Mathias Bynens' articles on re-shortcut-icon and touch icons, a FAQ or a Cheat Sheet for all the details.

I'd like to hear how you approach this: @valuedstandards or comment on this gist.

The issue

You have to include a boatload of link elements pointing to many different images to provide (mobile) devices with a 'favicon' or 'touch icon':
