Live Walk Around Epsom Downs (Experimental)

Join me for a live walk around Epsom Downs while I work out if it’s feasible to broadcast live from the countryside.

Lessons Learned

  1. Get a wind screen for my phone’s mic
  2. Increase the streaming bitrate
  3. Prepare the management phone better with:
    • YouTube app for live chat
    • Google Maps for maps
    • Remote access to home for proper stream management
  4. Stop walking when the app tells me it’s reconnecting
  5. Epsom Downs isn’t deep countryside so network coverage is probably above average for countryside walks
