About


I have been attempting to stream the PAC-12 Conference of games in one form or another shortly after the PAC-12 Network came into existence August of 2012.

Around 2 years ago (2014), I found xrxs.net, but after I was turned to Bosscast.net and Kodi.tv around May 2015, I was able to get the original playlist links needed to embed it into this website for viewing 24/7/365-1/4, so long as the power and Internet stay active at home, as I’ve been running the server at home. About 2 months ago, I was finally able to get the respective PAC-12 Digital links for each host school. As of May 16, 2016, only 5 of the 12 schools have 6 live stream feeds available for their use.

Amongst that streaming, I had been using Wowza‘s Media Streaming Server on it’s own virtual server on a separate dedicated computer (Asus Republic of Gamer’s laptop) from the web server (Asus All-in-one), to keep both feeds as smooth as possible. After many trials and errors over the previous year or so, I found this the best solution, over running them on the same physical computer, as it would bog down the web server on high profile game days. However, as finances would dictate, I cancelled this service May 2016, as much as I enjoyed the ability to run my own.

I had originally started out with Ustream, but when I went to stream certain games, I got kicked, so I decided to find a home alternative, and Wowza was the best choice over Adobe’s, as they offer a monthly plan, versus an upfront charge of thousands of dollars, which I didn’t have at the time, nor do I have now. I had looked at a couple of the ‘GPL Open Source’ options, but they didn’t offer hls streaming, which was beginning to become popular with iOS at the time.

Thank you for your reading through this.
