We have had many requests for media in the rental apartments over the years. As you know, Second Life is limited to only one stream per parcel. Since the INSILICO sims are not divided into different parcels and most of the apartment buildings are designed with multiple levels, watching media so far was tied to the single parcel media stream per sim.
The new media system will allow you to watch any media type supported by Quicktime and YouTube videos in your apartment by bypassing the sim-wide media setting. Having our free 6-prim mod/copy screen (client object) rezzed in your apartment, you will now be able to stream your desired video on a per avatar basis to people.
You can set the stream url via chat command; the client will then stream the video to everybody in range or anybody else in the sim who touches the client's screen (also just touch to resume playing after a relog). The default range is 10 meters (alterable).
To save sim resources you will have to touch the screen before you enter a chat command. Only the owner can control the screen, On touch it will open a listener channel and sensor, then you will be able to run following commands:
(streams the url to everyone in a 10m radius around the screen. mov, mp4 etc works too of course)
(changes the aspect ratio, other ratios are 16:10 and 4:3, default = 16:10)
range+ / range-
(changes the size of the area the streaming client will affect, default = 10m)
