This account is dedicated to archiving certain creators on Twitch. The streams are are auto-archived (recorded, transcoded, then uploaded, unless something breaks) using a custom script I
made. The conversion
actually reduces unnecessary bandwidth/extra file size and allows for
the stream to be played back in the original quality directly from the
Internet Archive without any quality loss or buffering, all while using less storage. This conversion process can take a long time,
which means sometimes once a stream ends, it can take anywhere from
1-24 hours until it is uploaded. Currently conversion on average takes
around 2x the duration of the stream, so if a stream is 1 hour long, the
conversion will take around 2 hours.
may be removed from the active archival list at any time. If it doesn't
seem necessary to archive them anymore or a request has been received
by them to stop archiving or something else, may result in removal of
specific streams, stopping future archiving of the creator, or all of
the above. You may also find where to request to have a streamer added to the list
though the contact listed on the DerpBox.tv FAQ page.
Streams were originally archived on the @iderp account. Some of the original archives can be found there.
