Just what everyone wanted, another streaming thread.
We’ve always had a local feed from my laptop to a projector inside the venue. I use 3 c920’s and just dump it from the HDMI out on my laptop to the projector. Now that the bar is getting their wifi upgraded, we actually have a signal where all the pinball machines are located.
I did a test stream with OBS yesterday and it seemed to work out pretty well. I do have a few general questions regarding the entire OBS / Twitch thing.
How do I get Twitch to save the stream so it’s available after the stream ends? We had an issue with Godzilla randomly rebooting and I was going to post the stream for suggestions, but it doesn’t appear that Twitch saved it.
Is there a way to embed the chat box inside the OBS window? I was using my phone to interact with the chat, but it would have been nice to see the chat window on the projection screen.
What’s the best way to handle audio when you don’t have commentators? External microphone pointed at the game? Or just use the built in microphone on the camera? The bar is kind of loud and the camera mic isn’t the greatest.
I’m not even sure anyone would be interested in a stream without commentary? We had a whopping average of 1.8 viewers last night!
