A GTV for Quake Live, that’s what FragTV is. mos-6581 has created a GUI that connects to someone running a FragTV server, relaying a demo while it’s being recorded, essentially creating a GTV-like experience. Holysh1t had a similar concept in development years ago that was web based but we couldn’t quite package it nicely.
It looks like mos-6581 has managed to do so and added some handy features on top. The FragTV client requires a WolfcamQL installation and will also connect to TwitchTV and show the stream (for audio mostly since you’re watching it in better quality in WolfcamQL) and chatbox from Twitch.
If you want to try it out, the usage is fairly simply. Download WolfcamQL, download FragTV, get the IP or URL from a FragTV server (you can test with 220.127.116.11:80 for QLRanksTV) and click connect. It’s as simple as that.
FragTV is an open source, cross-platform “GTV/SourceTV/etc” for QuakeLive, broadcasting live games and synchronizing with live video feeds.
FragTV works alongside standard gaming streams. It has its own browser to provide commentary, show the stream between matches and run ads.
During matches game data will be transmitted live to all clients and WolfcamQL will play it as a normal demo thats still being recorded. Audio from the stream provides synchronized commentary thanks to a small barcode and the twitch chat rooms are parsed and relayed to the ingame chat frame.
