You can watch the NosillaCast being created live at 5:00pm Pacific Time every Sunday right from this page. Below if the show is live, you’ll see the video, and you can join in the live chat. The live video is created by a service called Justin.tv and you can always go over and watch past shows being made by going to justin.tv/nosillacast.
Video and Live Chat:
If you want to join the chat room, simply click on the video and enter a chat room name (you don’t have to log in) and join the fun! Hope to see you here! (Nothing playing Live? go here to watch recordings of previous live shows: justin.tv/nosillacast/videos.)
Live Chat Room:
Another way to get the audio stream from a computer or smartphone (without chat or video), is to use this link:
Third Party Chat Clients
The chat experience gets even better if you use a third party client like Colloquy, Adium, or my favorite, Textual from CodeUX. On Windows try mIRC from mirc.com In those clients, you need to define a server name, and the room you want to enter.
Server Name: irc.borgchat.net
Room name: #nosillacast
This server has been created for us courtesy of Donald Burr, creator of the NosillaCast app for iOS. From this delightful app you can listen to the live show and also chat, but unfortunately the video itself is in Flash so you can’t watch too. In order to get to the Borgchat server, there’s “Super Seekrit Settings”:
In the app, if you tap on Settings, and then press and HOLD on configure other options and then drag your finger up, you get to the super seekrit settings. From that page, simply flip the switch to On for “Use Test IRC Server” and now you’re good to go! And of COURSE Donald whipped out a Clarify document to show you exactly how to do it in case my verbal instructions are lacking.
Now you really have no excuse not to listen/watch/chat do you?
