Is trying to snatch a Tesco delivery slot driving you mad? Have you accidentally flashed your coworkers on a conference call? Are you regretting trying a lockdown haircut? Come and let out your feelings with an EVE Uni Karaoke evening!

You don't need to be any good. You don't even need to sing if you don't want to (though it's highly encouraged). Just come along and be prepared to have some fun.

It'll be taking place in mumble and the Class (EVE Uni) channel in-game on 15 May 2020 at 21:00.

How it works:

1) Before the event sign up for a free account at plug.dj - this is where we will be playing the tunes think about some songs you'd like to sing
2) Get some beers in (or drink of your choice)
3) Turn up at the right time and place, I'll link the Plug DJ room in channel
4) Let MC Karpinski know what you want to sing
5) I'll put it on and you dazzle us with your vocals over mumble
6) ???
7) Bounty Mike

Although we strive to keep Uni comms family friendly this is one of the events where the drink is often flowing, and it may not be wholly suitable for children.

I'll be awarding prizes afterwards for some categories I'll make up completely on the spot.

Hope you can join us!

plug.dj is having an issue for over 2 months now, and we cannot search youtube for music, only soundcloud. There seems to be workarounds for google chrome, but i don't know the reliability. Perhaps there are alternatives to plug.dj on the interwebs, if the workarounds are too much of a hassle

I'm looking forward to the event though!

I just remembered something. On my discord server i have a Rythm bot (https://rythmbot.co/).

The bot responds when people type !play song_name

It will then search for song_name and play the first one it finds, I believe the default search is on youtube. If more than one person type the command, the bot queues the requests.

Maybe we could set up a minimal server to do the event on, and people could still join via browser, just like on plug.dj

During a recent structure bash somebody mentioned a solution/workaround for plugdj in Reddit.
Am unfortunately not a Reddit or Plugdj user, so don't have details, but maybe it helps searching...

Here's a written guide on how to fix the error while plug.dj tries to convince youtube to let it continue its thing:

I can play links from YouTube or SoundCloud. But I'm sure we can work something out if you have the tracks elsewhere.
