When you’re searching for ways to live-stream / broadcast something to the world, you’ll most likely land at the usual suspects - services like YouTube and Twitch. Well, those might be great, but you know what’s even greater? Right, self-hosting your own broadcasting platform. Luckily there is an awesome F(L)OSS project called Owncast that does the heavy-lifting for you. Owncast is a privacy-friendly drop-in replacement for services such as Twitch. Owncast finds a wide adoption throughout streamers already, because only YOU own and control the content. In this article I’ll show you how you can host your own Owncast-instance in just a few simple steps, containerized on any operating system that supports either podman or docker.

I was 15 years old when I first played my music on a small austrian web radio called beatnight.at. All I had back then, was a Reloop Digital Jockey 2 and VirtualDJ to mix music. I’ll have to admit, that the DJ sets back then weren’t really professional, however this experience sparked my interest in (web-)radio stations. Since the beginning of June 2021 I’m a member of the Jnktn.TV Team and I’ll be streaming on saturdays on a bi-weekly basis. My show is called Dance Attack with Ruffy, and - as the name implies - it’s all about dance music. I’ll mix the latest and the best songs out of House, Electro, Dance, Hands Up, Hardstyle and Hardcore live for you.
