Quick note: Neuros OSD and the joys of stream_fuse

Just in case you didn't see the comment on my earlier entry about my experiences with the Neuros OSD, here's some useful (and up-to-date) information from Michael Gschwandtner, who developed stream_fuse:

Hi james,

great article. But you should note that the stream_fuse server you are
referring to no longer officially supports the TORFU (1.xx) Firmware of the
OSD. I already moved on to the Arizona (2.xx) Releases. The instructions on
installing and running can be found here

Doctor Who on the i600If someone is still desperately searching for the stream_fuse for TORFU
images use
http://crypto.tznetz.com/dload/stream_fuse/stream_fuse instead.
But i really don't recommend it

In fact, the latest version of stream_fuse is more versatile than ever; the bitrate, frame rate and size are all configurable, so it's possible for me to reduce the stream to work really well over the internet, and have the best possible quality on the mac, simply by using a .pls file to link to the stream.

I'm deeply grateful to Michael for his efforts - with how many other products do the developers get in touch with feedback as helpful as this?

Oh, and Lenni and I watched Doctor Who on my mobile phone via the Neuros last night.. how cool is that?
