Just a thought...-

Sunday, July 12, 2020 by PoSmedley | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Sorry I haven't been around. Life has been interesting and cumbersome to say the least. I stream now. 7 days a week. I was looking at some of the old DesktopX widgets I have. Some of which I have been able to use to decorate my screen/stream over Christmas. My hands shake too much to do the kind of things in photoshop i used to do.

I've used DesktopX a lot on windows 10 with no problems at all. I had a rather odd thought about DesktopX. Could it and all those wonderful widgets be adapted for streaming?? I stream 7 days a week now. I think other widgets and objects could be used or adapted as well. Also, adapted as animated png files (something I have explored after finding an app that converts images into animated png's) for use in Twitch panels. Like calendars(schedules) and countdown widgets, etc. Just a thought. I know I would use them for sure. There was (is) a lot of good art in all those widgets and DesktopX Objects.

Also, if you're looking for something new to stretch your legs in as it were, creating stream overlays would be insanely simple for the artists here and the theme possibilities would be endless. Forgive me for posting this in the wrong spot (if I have). It's just been eating at me for a while (and some of u know how I get). I've had to make my own overlays cause i can't afford what some of the sites ask for them.

 

This is just one example..

Not to overstep or step on toes or whatever. I really don't mean to, but this could open up a whole new area for skinning and streamers do pay for these things. Even a simple webcam frame by itself or an entire theme (static and/or animated)...It's just a thought. I'll leave you to it. I'll understand if this post gets deleted. np no hard feelings. I just wanted to get it off my mind, if u know what I mean. Peace.

fyi not sure how the image will show. 5602x3258 is the original size so you can see it better. Hopefully it shows that way when clicked on or downloaded.

Good seeing you here. I have no idea what you mean, or how to do it, but it sounds good.

 

Noah, take care, buddy. We miss you!

I'd enjoy seeing more of you here, Noah. I, and many more, miss you.

The streaming you're doing, care to discuss it? What media are you streaming...gaming, TV, social media?

The wallpaper-style images are the 'scenes'. The labels are the 'panels' for the Streamers Twitch page. The webcam frame, banner, and any other items (and there are quite a few but not a ridiculous amount) depending on how far you want to go in putting together an entire package and you do them all in a theme. Like matching wallpapers, widgets, and icons. Forgot to mention the icons. lol You do them all in png format...UNLESS you have After Effects, then you can go nutz with animated images in html format. The only things that can't be animated are items that go on the Streamers Page , basically the panels and any logo or image you throw in.

Thanks. I hope it's given some thought. It could be very lucrative for the artists and the site. I just hope it's not seen as overstepping. I truly don't want to rock any boat or step on toes. Whatever happens happens. It's all good.

Thanks, Doc!

I'm streaming top secret videos of ufo's taken from..no wait...wrong stream.

I'm streaming games, mostly one. Been thinking about a couple games from Stardock. Specifically Demigod and Deadman's Draw. I like the card games. Still building my stream. I'm very small but did make affiliate and am one step away from partner. And it all started as something to pass the time and keep me awake basically. There's not a damn pill I take that doesn't have a warning on it about sleepiness and driving, etc. It's a day to day struggle. Sometimes the pills win for a day or two but mostly I manage. Anyway, I didn't post this to plug anything. I sincerely think that the idea has some good merits.

Thank you for the kind words. I miss all of you as well. Very happy the post wasn't met with negative reaction so far. Fingers crossed.

I knew you'd disappoint me. Just when I was hoping to hitch a ride. Ah well...

I hope you at least see some easing of your pain with them, Noah.

I thought you were dead. 

I ALREADY mourned for you. I burned my troll thumping stick!

I'm not.

And that's not what the video shows you doing with your troll thumping stick.*derp

FYI. You should be nice before I use all those face pics I've accumulated over the years and turn you into an emote package for twitch. I think this one would be especially perfect to start. I could make you famous?
