Nginx is the most popular web server alongside of Apache. Personally, I am a huge fan of Nginx. One important reason for this is that Nginx can easily be setup to become a live-stream server. Also, it makes a great reverse proxy that can greatly improve the performance of any website when properly set up. But it can, of course, also host websites. One of the most popular engines to …
What I’ve been working on
In the early summer of 2019 I purchased an Oculus Virtual Reality headset, and this made me discover my passion for 3D. A very popular “game” for the Oculus is VRChat, and in it people are allowed to upload their own worlds and avatars. Obviously, I wanted to try this out myself, so I started searching for a free app that could help me with this. And that is how …
The god(s) of data-storage
I seem to have somehow upset the god(s) of data storage. It feels like I’m being punished, or at least challenged by them as of recently. Specifically the last three months. It feels like this for me because hard drives have been failing to the left and to the right of me, and even directly in front of me. And all within a crazy short amount of time. This is …
The Statue of LiberDre

Added a model of New York in the background that was compiled using drone shots. Learned how to create water in Blender, added the water and a bit of mist. And after this was done rendering I added some audio …

The artists that came together for the show this year are Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blidge, Kendrick Lamar and …
A little update
Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I last posted here so this little update is long due. I’ve been getting a LOT of responses to this little post here, and I want to thank specifically a person called James for responding to many comments that I haven’t commented on myself. I’ve not been keeping up with those as good as I should have. Sorry about that. Although I am …
I was preparing to post a new blog article until I noticed that I’ve missed a shit-ton of comments on some of my earlier posts. Because the web-server decided to stop sending me notifications on new comments. So, I’m very sorry for not getting back to all those people that left a comment. I’m gonna get right on that after posting this and when I’ve fixed the issue with sending …

Spawn a localhost nginx live-stream server on Windows with HLS and Dash within 10 minutes!
The title says it all. I’ve created a Youtube video to accompany this guide. Watch it here. Before we start, please find out if you are running a program on your PC that is using port 80 (a webserver).
