I know there are a few threads discussing builds and setups, but I’m in a little bit of a time crunch on this one and hoping someone can help me. I currently run a setup with my laptop, 3 Logitech 920s and OBS at leagues every week. It’s a local feed only, meaning that I just connect the HDMI output from my laptop to their AV distribution system and they can put me on a few of the TVs.
I’d like to attempt streaming this weekend at the 24h Delaware tournament and have a few questions. I got my wires crossed with the organizer and I’d like to see if I can figure it out in the next few hours.
If my current setup can handling a local HDMI output, can I assume that it can handle streaming (I would doubt it…)? I’d probably only be using 2 cameras instead of the usual 3, but wasn’t sure how much transcoding happens on the fly when streaming.
Is there a way to test streaming without actually making the feed viewable? Meaning can I connect to Twitch and try it out to see how it behaves?
Can you stream for as long as you want, or is there some type of “are you there” every once in awhile? For example, if I wanted to just turn this thing on and let it go for 24h, is that possible?
Can you embed Matchplay into OBS? Meaning could I have 2 cameras and then the matchplay standings on the screen?
And most importantly,
- Would anyone even watch a 24h stream with no commentary?
