I should see if I can get the high quality link and wfmu's stream in sync.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(Mine are in sync...I'm fading between every now and then just to make sure it's working, but mainly I'm listening to the better quality one! The live 128k stream is ick)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 6:03pm Rich in Washington:

oh so close. I am hearing two Kenzos separated by approximately 500 microseconds. I cannot nudge it closer, I think.

I gave up on the two streams thing and now am listening to the high quality stream. It does sound much, much better.

Listening to it through an old version of WinAmp.

I listen to WFMU's streams so often, I don't often notice that it's kind of low bitratey.

Watching the lights on my mixer blink as this plays.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I turned on the little sound wave visualizer thingies in Winamp for perhaps the first time ever in one of my shows, this time. Otherwise it was hopeless to figure out which one was which after a while. Usually I have great spacial memory on my screen filled with players, but these are all totally abstract.

Digging the illusory sounds, Kenzo but gotta split. Thanks.

  Wed. 11/29/17 6:17pm Bliss:

how many k is the top "Pop up"?
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It's 264k variable bitrate, which gets as high as 320k. The normal live stream is constant bitrate 128k.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Later in your future player past Stanley
  Wed. 11/29/17 6:22pm Bliss:

The Pop-up at the top is higher than the 128k MP3 or the MP# 192K, or do you mean the bottom Pop up player is 264k. I thought the top pop up was the lowest quality.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 6:25pm coelacanth∅:

the regular fmu pop-up isn't 128, is it? it sounds pretty bad. the "128k mp3" link, even though i'm forced to use the crappy vlc player, sounds much better than the pop-up ever has.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The links up top near "give the drummer" are both 128k. The links down lower near "listen to this show" are both VBR 264k.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh actually the usual pop-ups might be 64k AAC+ MP4's, which isn't nearly as bad as 64k MP3 would be.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Pro-listening-tip: For much higher quality sound, use these audio links (MP3 wfmu.org... or Pop-up player wfmu.org...) and skip ahead to where we are now.

oh i just clicked that link and of course it's not what you're airing right now. vlc doesn't have a way to ff it to a certain time into the file.

My VLC has times when I seek that link
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

In VLC, try Ctrl-T to bring up the "seek to a specific time" input field
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 6:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Also seek if it lets you seek in this link: mp3archives.wfmu.org...

Kenzo how long is the total program? if i knew that i could estimate and possibly zero in on what you're broadcasting now.

Now I'm listening to the WFMU 128k stream on iTunes, the high quality link on the popup player and the 192k m3u on VLC. I cannot sync it, though, but they're all pretty close.
