The Nowhereworld ‘three day’ season finale is now over, and what a weekend it was.

I managed to catch most of the livestreams and every mix was outstanding and the production level of the videos from Nowehereworld was on another level.

What an amazing journey I have had with the team at Nowhereworld over the past year, it’s been an honour and pirvilege to be a part of this journey.

I have met so many great people from across the world and made many new friends through these events. I am pleased to let you know that there will definitely be a ‘season 2’ in the near future, but in the meantime have a look at the official ‘after-movie’ from Nowhereworld.

The whole three day event will also soon be available on the official Nowhereworld youtube channel, so mplease subscribe to ensure you get notified when the sets are uploaded.

Also, all the audio mixes will be available on the Nowehereworld Mixcloud site.

All good things must come to an end…and this weekend sees the season finale for Nowhereworld.

The team at Nowhereworld have promised to go out in style and if the trailer is anything to go by, we are in for a great event.

There are three full days with 22 DJs from across the trance planet ready to take you on an adventure into this virtual trance event.

A couple of days ago I received an email from Twitch regarding DMCA copyright issues on VOD and clips. The main purpose was to let users know that if they play copyright music on livestreams it can get removed.

“We recently received a batch of DMCA takedown notifications with about 1,000 individual claims from music publishers. … The only way to protect yourself from DMCA notifications is to not stream music – or other copyrighted material – you do not have rights to.” TWITCH

At present, this will only effect past streams and will not cause any issues while broadcasting live, but if things don’t change then it will potentially mean the end of DJ livestreams on Twitch.

I have just read an interesting article from the people at Mixcloud and they have a platform where you can livestream and the artists receive royalties when their tracks are played.

I have been using Mixcloud for a while now for streaming the audio from past twitch episodes and I will soon be testing it out for doing livestreaming.

I have looked into it a bit and at present it doesn’t have the full features that are available on Twitch, but in the next few months that may all change.

I have also been looking into another service at Hearthis.at/live – They don’t have any limitations on the broadcast quality or bitrate, but the chat features on it are not as intuitive.

At present I will be sticking to twitch and hope they can sort out the issues.
