    Thanks OMG.
    I have had a look at your playlists and will probably start small and as long as you still don't mind I will copy those for posterity (and as a backup) in to the QV channel. Once I have them in one place I can take a look at the next step. Unfortunately work is crazy at the moment but hopefully when/if things calm down I should be able to devote the time / effort that these personal projects will require.


    Thanks once again
    Monty

    NGQTV is defunct, but it was just a portal for a shitload of playlists that I compiled/copied. You can still go to my OneMadGypsy channel, if you wish, and browse those playlists. The only exception was Arrcee and Dumptruck. I told the youTube API to scrape their playlists for recent content. Although, I believe at one point I did make an Arrcee playlist before I realized that youTube didn't care where the playlist was coming from. You could also very easily save my playlists to your channel in case I ever do decide to wipe them. Just click save on the most top level of the playlist and it should copy an instance of the entire thing in one shot. Do that like 20 times, or something, and you should have them all.

    Also, you have your quakeVoid site. I'm sure I have an instance of NGQTV laying around somewhere that you can host. It has no dependencies. My system worked by running a script that would literally write the entire channel directory for me (html and all) so, all the data is static and doesn't do any polling. Every month or so I would simply run the script again and have it write a fresh channel directory for me. I can't give you that script (because my API keys and stuff like that are in it), but I can give you the most recent results of that script that I can find. Note: you will need to host the script outside of wordpress. It is it's own standalone thing entirely. If you have a host like mine all you have to do is make a folder on your root like "qvtv", dump everything in it and then qvtv.quakevoid.com should bring you right to it. That's how I was doing it, anyway.

    Quake TV - Recommended channels

    Hello again
    I was always very appreciative of the Quake playthroughs done by Dumptruck and the mighty Arrrcee on thier youtube channels, as well as OMG's now shutdown Quake TV Web App on the NGQ site. They became compulsive viewing after a time as other than going to quake.shmack.net, getting your fill of Quake is getting harder. Unfortunately those streams of activity seem to be dimishing slightly and so I wonder if you have any Quake 1 specific channel's that you could recommend to the community?

    I'm happy to start the ball rolling and recommend JCR9001's channel. He is a talented mapper and player from the USA who has recently appeared on my radar and started to do his own playthroughs and tutorials. Needless to say JCR hasn't asked me to do this, and to be honest probably doesn't even know who I am . From what I can tell, and I could of course be wrong here, he doesn't seem to publicise himself very much and given the effort he appears to put in and the amount of work he is producing it seems only fair to bring the channel to the attention of the community and perhaps give him a few thumbs up.

    His latest playthrough video features the JokeJam pack and can be viewed at the following url...
