Feile Tilting 2010 broadcast and webcast from
St. Patrick's Hall in Tilting September 9 - 12.
This year's radio component focused
on making a connection with an Irish
audience, as well as reaching out to expatriates.
The concept of participatory community radio
was enhanced by advice on the Town of Tilting website to
use Audacity to record stories for the broadcast.
Skype was not only used to call-in
but it was also the software used to make a connection for
simultaneous broadcasting with Community Radio Youghal
in County Cork.
It should be stressed that we are webcasting
from a rural area - we try to ensure that even dial up
listeners are supported so we use a highly compressed
mono audio stream.
Think of the webcast as a rural pub.
There is limited room inside (our bandwidth)
so you may have to wait until somebody
leaves before you can get in.
Check out Tilting and the Feile Tilting Program.

We webcast MP4 (QuickTime). QuickTime is a free download -
we will ensure the audio stream will be compatible
with dial-up internet connections.

However, for the Sunday webcast from Tilting
the listeners discovered VideoLAN,
a volunteer Open Source group in France.
They have developed an Open Source media player - VLC -
which seemed to solve access problems for the Tilting webcast.

Fogo Island is known globally as one of
the birth places of participatory communications.
"The Fogo Process" is still taught in schools on the island.
