I think it's not too much of a waste if I repeat here two simple tricks with 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

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.

hey fediverse, I need some #sysadmin #help.

I'm running a small #email linux server with #spamassassin, #postfix, dbl. SA is learning daily from junk mailboxes.

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)

(testing copyright infringement using video uploads of mastodon to prove how the argument that audio-only uploads would make mastodon an audio filesharing platform and therefore audio-only uploads are not worth implementing is bogus)

I am moving my music-related social networking to (currently) small instance dedicated to musicans, song-writers and noise-makers:

I will probably slowly cease activity on this account, so please follow me there: (@


Rehearsal for a rerun of an open, instant composition, rule-based, contemporary dance performance - Just for Today by Maja Delak.

Tomorrow at 21h. 🙄

#MajaDelak #StageArt

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. 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 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 let me know if you want an account.

Please boost!
