would love you guys to pull in some zoom events from outside of your ecosystem, especially high quality / branded ones.

rishi_t · 158d ago

That's our next step- we're reaching out and trying to add as many as we can! You can always add your own by inviting zoom-tv-guide@appspot.gserviceaccount.com to your event!

Nice. I get it.

p_q · 158d ago

This is ingenius. please keep this 1 going

rishi_t · 158d ago

Really considering it! What do you think of our feature list upcoming?

jborichevskiy · 158d ago

Have definitely wished for something similar before, considering how many interesting lectures are happening out there every week.

ryanjlieu · 158d ago

Definitely something that was at top of mind for us as university students :)

mynameisJura · 159d ago

Neat idea. Will be great to have categories

ryanjlieu · 158d ago

Thanks Jura! Definitely in the roadmap - currently we support tagging and search for tags

marc · 158d ago

Love it!

Brainsprays.com · 158d ago

Hope this project is in the top 50! Great job - very useful!

ayush · 158d ago

Nice Idea. This will be helpful for many.

ryanjlieu · 158d ago

Thanks! Appreciate it

williem · 158d ago

Great idea. A nice way to manage too many zoom links that I have for meeting.

rishi_t · 158d ago

Could you talk more about how you'd use it for personal meeting links?

josefran · 158d ago

I love it! Kind of similar to watching the "guide" in cable tv!

rishi_t · 158d ago

Thanks so much! Maybe we'll release a retro theme

platter.dev · 158d ago

Nice! Here's a recent Twitter related thread to get in on: https://twitter.com/jeff_weinstein/status/1247982180308897792

rishi_t · 158d ago

Thanks so much! Drew some inspiration from here :')

dcg · 158d ago

This is awesome. Next obvious steps would be to scrape from the web, interpret time using pytz or something. And things get really interesting if you auto-embed Zoom previews somehow, to make the channel surfing instant.

Anyway, really cool!

ryanjlieu · 158d ago

Thanks! Scraping's definitely next up on our roadmap - we were thinking of pulling data from Twitter actually!

Brickenator · 158d ago

Cool mate!

yunyu · 159d ago

This really uses Zoom for beyond its intended purpose - truly in the original spirit of a hack. Great job!

kamesstory · 159d ago

Great work - love the idea and hope to see you all make the next generation of Twitch.tv! :D

rishi_t · 158d ago

Thank you so much! We take lots of inspiration from Justin Kan and others who paved the way :)

ryanjlieu · 159d ago

We just finished our last build before judging! Site is live at zoomtv.live

rahulgs · 159d ago
