I have been attempting to stream the PAC-12 Conference of games in one form or another shortly after the PAC-12 Network came into existence August of 2012.

Around 2 years ago (2014), I found xrxs.net, but after I was turned to Bosscast.net and Kodi.tv around May 2015, I was able to get the original playlist links needed to embed it into this website for viewing 24/7/365-1/4, so long as the power and Internet stay active at home, as I’ve been running the server at home. About 2 months ago, I was finally able to get the respective PAC-12 Digital links for each host school. As of May 16, 2016, only 5 of the 12 schools have 6 live stream feeds available for their use.

Amongst that streaming, I had been using Wowza‘s Media Streaming Server on it’s own virtual server on a separate dedicated computer (Asus Republic of Gamer’s laptop) from the web server (Asus All-in-one), to keep both feeds as smooth as possible. After many trials and errors over the previous year or so, I found this the best solution, over running them on the same physical computer, as it would bog down the web server on high profile game days. However, as finances would dictate, I cancelled this service May 2016, as much as I enjoyed the ability to run my own.

I had originally started out with Ustream, but when I went to stream certain games, I got kicked, so I decided to find a home alternative, and Wowza was the best choice over Adobe’s, as they offer a monthly plan, versus an upfront charge of thousands of dollars, which I didn’t have at the time, nor do I have now. I had looked at a couple of the ‘GPL Open Source’ options, but they didn’t offer hls streaming, which was beginning to become popular with iOS at the time.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

I am providing the the table below to show you what services I’m paying for, and where I’m at on those bills, related to running the web and streaming media servers. Actual values are entered, but are rounded to the nearest whole dollar for reference only.



This Live Stream site is focused on the PAC-12 Conference, but upon request, will try to schedule a game into the mix, where available. I prefer a 24 hour advance, as I may not be available, the closer it gets to your request.


If you have been enjoying the streaming, and have the desire to help keep the ‘digital lights on’, then please consider becoming a member. (Active as of 12/31/15 1:00pm PT.) The requested fee of $5 is less than a standard fast food meal, and is for my time and effort of putting this site together, and keeping it as up to date as often as possible.


If you don’t have that desire to become a member, but still have the desire to donate, then follow donate button to PayPal:

If you have previously donated, feel free to sign up for the 2 week trial, and let me know. I will compare you to my PayPal history, and adjust your account accordingly.

And now that Google Adsense is in effect, since July 9, 2016, if you become a member, you will have stream pages without ads, as I work them in.
