Kenzo - looks like I can skip further than now and into the future before you've aired it.

My stupid work meeting ended. Finally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Stanley:

Nope, just figured it out. The future is actually what's playing now.

Hi, Rich. Stanley has a time shifting tip for you.

Stanley, you control our present-future. Use care.

I should see if I can get the high quality link and wfmu's stream in sync.
Avatar 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 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.

Switched to the high-quality archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Rich in Washington:

I gave up on the two streams thing and now am listening to the high quality stream. It does sound much, much better.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Rand al'Thor:

Listening to it through an old version of WinAmp.
Avatar 6:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We are deprived on this live Drummer stream, really

Rand: Old version of Winamp is my entire jam

david: Give yourself as much as possible, right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Rich in Washington:

I listen to WFMU's streams so often, I don't often notice that it's kind of low bitratey.
Avatar 6:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

For layers of trebley field records, forgetaboutit

Watching the lights on my mixer blink as this plays.
Avatar 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.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Stanley:

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

~phutt~
  6:17pm Bliss:

how many k is the top "Pop up"?
Avatar 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 6:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Later in your future player past Stanley
  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 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 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 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 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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm coelacanth:

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.

@david moses fruchter, you're immortalized on lastever.org... now

coelacanth, whaaaaaat you can't seek in VLC? Makes...no...sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm coelacanth:

i can seek blindly. no times given.
Avatar 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My VLC lets me seek into wfmu.org... no problem
Avatar 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh I see.
Avatar 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My VLC has times when I seek that link
Avatar 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

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

Also seek if it lets you seek in this link: mp3archives.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm coelacanth∅:

Kenzo how long is the total program? if i knew that i could estimate and possibly zero in on what you're broadcasting now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm coelacanth∅:

yes that one i can. where are we at?
Avatar 6:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

93:20
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Rich in Washington:

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.
Avatar 6:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):
