Welcome to awi3d.plus.com - if you can see this page we are up and streaming - Live Binaural Audio - Headphones required!
This is an on-test website using the raspberry Pi computer and a Cirrus Logic audio card, running headless at the command line, streaming from two microphones embeded into a dummy head with 3D printed ears, the secret for true 3D binaural recordings are simply down to using ears with a microphone at the entrance of the ear canal! as then, when played back through headphones the sound experienced is that as if you were there, where the dummy head is - if a bird where to land on the dummy head, and you were listening to that through headphones, it would appear that the bird had landed on your own head!... the link to the left should open up a Icecast server web page to listen to the stream - This will be broadcasting all the time from my back garden, until it crashes or I switch it off from time to time
The "Raspberry Pi" is a very small computer running an image downloaded from here:
CCTV of Frank in garden - Leave user name and password blank on log in screen, then just click quicktime or VLC in the dropdown "Format" and click channel 1 or 2 - the default java app is no longer supported on these old DVR units
If you would like to try VLC Player, open a network stream and paste this into the address, without the quotes "rtsp://awi3d.plus.com:554/user=admin_password=tlJwpbo6_channel=1_stream=0.sdp?real_stream"
Should work with Internet explorer/firefox/chrome with the correct plugins - Enjoy your stay!
This stream is part of a global open mic network initiated and hosted by locus sonus
Below is an image of my Raspberry Pi in the back garden
PHOTO BELOW: Onvif IP camera - 720p - not too bad at night, this is a cheap Chinese one that cost 25UKP inc postage from China! can you spot Frank?
