Murphy’s law

If something can go wrong, it will.

How do you read such a sentence? The ways of interpret it are as frequent as the occasions it is used. My most favorite interpretation is the contingency-plan-paradigm. In thinking through a venture many possibilities of failure arise and a plan to action is made according to the goals and the risks on the way. Acting according to Murphy’s law means then to have the contingency-plan for the possible failures to be able to follow through the plan to the goal and to be prepared to adapt to changed realities.

“why wander far away when the good is so close” J. W. Goethe

Streaming setup for video-conferences and Co.: OBS, YouTube/Facebook, Webcam, Headphones with mic. Investments in the quality can be infinite, recently in a chat between podcasters it was even mentioned a ~3.000 Euro mic for a decent quality. Sound quality is still unresolved, but Video I made a leap forward.

My setup beyond the Notebook Webcam was an Aukey-Full-HD camera with a very wide angle, advantages and disadvantages. Today I saw the good old EOS 60D on the shelf and was wondering around if a streaming-setup was possible. Indeed 1080p@25fps is feasible with very low effort. Mini-USB-Cable and gphoto2 via v4l2. For longer use than little testing a power-adapter may be necessary but the first steps were easy and satisfactory.
