Last week I attended my first online live concert on Ligx.de. The band was Thrice, a post hardcore band which of some of you might know. I was skeptical with the user experience but was surprised positively. Of course it is not comparable with a real live concert but attending the entire show with support band, sound check etc. gives you the live atmosphere. You know things are happening really in that moment and you get no 20 seconds YouTube clip with bad sound quality like there are so many from trillion different concerts.
And not to forget since generally I am only blogging about Flash/Flex stuff, the Ligx website is build with Flex and I am pretty sure the streaming part is done with the Flash Media Server and the backend is done with Ruby and RubyAMF.
