  1. Setup 2FA for your Steam account and a PIN for Remote Play. "Problem" solved.
  2. As long as it's 802.3af you should be fine, just be careful if it's an "active" POE connection though, I've lost two cable testers thanks to those.
  3. I'm talking from a business owner perspective. I'm just trying to understand which laws are more important and why. I'm going to stick to following the laws of the country I live in, I can't afford to keep up to date on tax codes and laws of every country in the world.
  4. What makes the EU laws more important that North Korea's in the eyes of somebody who doesn't look like be in either place?
  5. If the EU wants to pay for accountants and lawyers then I'm all for it, but expecting companies in one country to hire additional staff to support laws and taxes in every other country in the world makes no sense to me. LMG is a Canadian company, they should only be concerned with Canadian laws and not the laws in North Korea.
  6. 1080p at 30 FPS is doable at 6000 bitrate with x264. I stream at the Slow or Medium CPU preset and it looked decent at 6000 bitrate but I switched to 720 at 60 FPS because it looks smoother. If you stream at a 6000 bitrate then your viewers need at least a 6Mbps internet connection to watch your stream with no dropped frames. Mobile viewers won't stick around unless they're on WiFi and users from other countries most likely won't watch either. I normally stream at 2500-4000 bit rate depending on what I'm doing (sometimes I just want to stream and then export to YouTube
  7. If you're dead set on streaming at 1080p 30 FPS then 6000 bitrate is your best bet, just don't know expect a lot of viewers. I used to stream at 1080p with a 10000 bit rate and got a lot of complaints because viewers didn't have a fast enough connection to watch my streams so I lost all of the followers I made and had 0 average viewers. I started streaming at 720p with a 3000 bit rate and I jumped to 50 followers and became Twitch Affiliate within a month.
  8. Go watch the popular Twitch streamers and go view the video stats to see what they stream at. People rarely stream at 1080p, they either stream at 720p or 900p.
  9. Become a Twitch partner and stream at a higher bitrate. Keep in mind if you are not a Twitch partner and you stream above 3000 bitrate a lot of viewers will not be able to watch you because you will not have transcoding enabled for your streams and without a broadband connection they'll get dropped frames (even on LTE mobile connections where latency is a pain). So if you want to stream for a few people, crank up the bitrate until Twitch throttles you. If you want to get viewers aim for 2500-3000 to start.
  10. As for streaming resolution, aim for 720p at 60FPS for the games you're playing unless you're a Twitch partner (not affiliate) and you can bump up your bitrate a lot. While Twitch doesn't have a "max" bitrate, they have been known to throttle non-partners above 6000 so that should be your focus and trying to push 1080p at 60 FPS even with x264 doesn't look great at 6000 bitrate.
  11. For a single PC setup I always recommend going hardware encoding if you have an NVIDIA card. The quality difference isn't much at common bit rates and there's no noticeable performance hit. For a dual PC setup then software (x264) all the way.
  12. I feel bad for people who are surprised by this "news". It makes me genuinely upset that people are that ignorant about tech in 2019 and somebody isn't trying to fix that.
  13. The only way this would work is using Thunderbolt like Linus did or running really long HDMI cables like I did. Using USB for video doesn't work for gaming (I tried it) so you're looking at either multiple long cable runs or an expensive Thunderbolt hub and cable. Source:
  14. I'm looking for a monitor for my IP cameras that I can mount on a wall with minimal wires (preferably power only, POE, or something with a batter that I can charge overnight). I was thinking of getting a cheap Amazon Fire tablet and mounting that to the wall and using tinyCam Pro, but I don't know how well the tablet would hold up with the display on 12 hours a day, 7 days a week and I don't want to deal with unlocking the screen and re-opening the app every time. Size doesn't matter and I'd like to keep costs under $100 if possible. Any ideas or suggestions?
  15. If you're using Windows 10 look into Wireless Projection, it's a built-in feature on Windows 10 and I used it for the first time this week and it worked amazing. The laptop has to be on the same network as the PC, but that's the only requirement. EDIT: I can't find the guide that I used, but this one should work: https://www.onmsft.com/how-to/how-to-connect-to-a-wireless-display-in-windows-10
  16. Nothing new here, companies "rebrand" existing hardware all of the time and markup the price because of the label but that's also because of the included support for it. Just because they are the exact same product doesn't mean they're worth the same amount.
  17. Looks like specific data centers are having issues them or it could be a load balancing issue.
  18. Since programming is not very demanding and can be done on any smartphone these days I would focus on the gaming aspect for your build. Any PC built for gaming can be used for programming but not every PC built for programming can be used for gaming. Focus on building a PC that will play the games you want and just buy 1 or 2 more monitors for programming and you'll be set.
  19. I don't know anything about Xlight, but if it's like any other FTP server it should allow you to enable anonymous read-only access so they don't need an account to download files.
  20. The page loads for me but none of the posts do so it looks like a server issue. I was originally thinking DNS but the main page loads, just not any of the content.
  21. No, why would somebody pay money for you to use their stuff? VMs cost money to run (i.e. servers, storage, network hardware, bandwidth, power, cooling, real estate, support staff, monitoring, security, licenses, software, management, etc...). Not to mention "free" services are high targets for abuse so they cost a lot more money to operate at any large scale. My advice is find a skill that you're good at and sign up for Fiverr, once you make $15 go rent a linux VM for a year and next year go back to Fiverr and make another $15 to pay for the renewal. I know people who do this and I
  22. Excellent choice. All of my home servers are ARM devices and they're perfect for 99% of my needs (for the other 1% I run a VM on my PC). They cost almost nothing to run 24x7, cost very little to buy, and generate no heat or noise.
  23. You can drive to the website owners house and have a chat with them, I don't recommend it but if you're looking to explore all options that's one way. You're asking the same question as "how do I fix somebody else's car when they live on a different planet?"... you just can't because you don't have any access to it. If the website is offline there's no fixing it if you don't have access to the domain, server, or owner.
