I think it's not too much of a waste if I repeat here two simple tricks with #ffmpeg in order to upload audio as video to mastodon:
1) test-tv image/animation:
ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc -i AUDIOFILE -shortest OUTPUT.webm
2) album cover or similar:
ffmpeg -loop 1 -i IMAGE.png -i AUDIOFILE -s 200x200 -shortest OUTPUT.webm
* with -s WWWxHHH you can adjust the size/resol. of the video
* instead of webm you can safely use mp4 as output extension - it will create an mp4 with x264/aac codecs
My new album called "Of Judy Stroat" is OUT right now!, and the video for the track "Just Romantique" too! 💥 💥 ‼️

audio streaming tech nerdery
I have solved the problem of remote stream injection - there's an option in #IceCast called <fallback> stream which is a secondary stream to which the listener is 'moved' when primary stream drops. <fallback-override> then allows to move the listener back to primary stream when it appears again. To listener it appears as a single audio stream. This is perfect for my case tomorrow where I will be streaming from the club to my OBS in the studio when I won't be there.
but still a lot of spam is coming through and friends on my box are getting increasingly frustrated.
what are your sure-shot spam-fighting techniques? please help with advice!
Icecast is a streaming media (audio/video) server which currently supports Ogg (Vorbis and Theora), Opus, WebM and MP3 streams.
It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between.
Darkice is a simple command-line streamer that takes audio input from jack or alsa input and streams it in Ogg Vorbis to icecast server.
Both are easy to install on Debian via apt (icecast2 & darkice)
I am moving my music-related social networking to (currently) small instance dedicated to musicans, song-writers and noise-makers: sonomu.club.
I will probably slowly cease activity on this account, so please follow me there:
@luka (@ sonomu.club)
This instance is closing in May! Please do follow me at my new account, @artsyhonker
I might still request an invite to Wandering Shop, too, since so many of you have suggested it.
sonomu.club: Sound Noise Music mastodon instance.
We welcome active musicians, songwriters, algorave livecoders, digital signal processing hackers, bedroom producers, writers of choral music, under-the-radar music selectors, exotic instrument explorers...
We'd like to stay easy and modest in numbers, hope for a quality local timeline and network with high S/N ratio.
Read our CoC first
then get in touch if you're interested joining our club.
In the light of smusi.ch instance folding I have started a new, small invite-only instance for everyone who are working in the field of music creation - songwriters, algorave livecoding, bedroom producers or modular synth addicts...
After you've read https://sonomu.club/about/more let me know if you want an account.
