I left in all the audio issues we had at the beginning, the audio is rough, I think Google dropped the audio quality on their recordings, so we’re going to have to get creative on getting quality recordings from here on out.
WHAT: Driving Uber while streaming my Dashcam
WHERE: Washington DC / DC Metro area
WHY: Making money while trying to promote The Podcaste online
HOW: Verizon Unlimited plan and a Windows 10 Samsung Galaxy #nonspon…
Recently, I’ve been crushed by taxes, debt and needing to make an extra buck for a big trip. A lot of stress lead to a lot of innovation as I didn’t want to leave my online presence behind and I set up an IRL streaming rig in the car to promote ThePodcaste while I worked. Basically I’m just streaming dashcam video with a basic HUD.
The heads-up display has evolved and now I have a break down of how many fares I need to do to get my next bonus! I use OBS Studio to sometimes show different camera views of the road and the inside of the car and switch to “Customer Privacy Mode” when I have somebody in the car.
I’m hoping people start tuning in and watching my IRL stream. It’s nice to make money but it feels great doing it with online friends checking in and saying hi in the chat.
Yesterday, SNRG sent me a bunch of great tracks to use while I drive so I’m going to be heavily featuring their music in my stream this weekend.
Jump onto https://twitch.tv/thepodcaste and say hi to me while I’m getting fares! I might not see it or I might not respond because I’m driving, but if I do see it, it’ll make me feel awesome and I’ll love it. Also, you should watch because DC driving is crazy and you might see some wacky stuff! I’ve seen some upside-down cars, some on fire cars, crazy protesters and motorcades for political celebrities and foreign dignitaries.
This is something that happened while streaming yesterday:
