I suggested this on the other forums with the purple logo but it didnt go anywhere. How about setting up a GoG twitch channel? Heres how I think we could run it although I dont know a huge amount about the ins and outs of twitch.
Those of us who already record game play could stream it instead or as well as recording. We could either designate one person to be the streamer and they have access to the GoG twitch account. That person would probably be a combination or the person who is:
The most prolific player (ie online the most)
Has the fastest and most stable internet connection so it doesnt impact gameplay
is best at the game (although there maybe an argument that the worst at the game is best for PUBG as they can spectate the squad)
The alternative is that one or more of us have our own twitch accounts which the main GoG account can "host" which i think basically means they re-stream it. This means the host can be changed relatively easily depending on who is playing in a particular game.
The benefits :
Bring more people into the GoG community through twitch
Nights people cannot get on they could potentially still follow the action on their phone and interact via text chat on twitch
If we end up with people having to sit out games because we have one too many, they can follow the gameplay on twitch while they wait for a spot.
we could start with just streaming our evening pubg/rocket league/forza/etc sessions and maybe more groups could form and stream to the channel.
I have been doing some research and Twitch doesn't save videos automatically by default, you have to enable it (which is annoying as it means I have no recording of last nights win). But you can enable it to store videos for up to 2 weeks, this can be increased to 60 days by becoming a partner for which you need an established community of viewers and active chat and be streaming 3 times a week at least) or by paying for turbo membership which is $9 per month.
I believe also that if you link a youtube account to your twitch account you can archive your past recordings and clips straight to youtube, I havent tested it though, will do later as I have the afternoon off.
