OBS live streaming

In this post, we will set up a live stream to broadcast a live camera, a chrome browser window playing youtube, and a video game arranged in one view. The stream will be created by OBS while we will use Nginx RTMP server. We will “watch our live stream” via VLC on another machine within the same private network.

A screenshot of desktop station with a lot of applications running.

OBS studio running with the three windows created.

Properly configure stream to RTMP server first.

Start the docker container running Nginx with RTMP plugin.

Point the VLC stream to open RTMP stream
