  • Hi how your host your obs when you are outdoor?
    Does this mean , I assume , I am outdoor sending SRT to back home (obs running at home pc ) and then re-route out to Twitch ? And use a loop-obs to monitor my obs (home ) for switching and overlay?

  • it would be much simplier to RTMP out to Lightstream or similar service as you can then get Mods/Editors to run prerecorded “break” videos on your behalf also without needing to worry about a remote OBS connection would could be a security issue in some cases.

  • Hi Spreeezy, stumbled upon your channel/page/resources when I was looking to do IRL streaming. Your recommended encoder seem to be discontinued. What do you think about the TBS 603 v2?
