How to Stream with OBS Studio


If you have been following this blog, you know that I use OBS Studio to stream myself playing the occasional game, as well as for my Church’s Livestream. Now since I’m a strong believer in sharing the knowledge I have ascertained with others, I have decided to make a how to tutorial on how to get started streaming with OBS Studio.

Props to NerdorDie on YouTube for creating such a comprehensive tutorial series. You can check out their website to get the free resources from the videos.

1. Tutorial Series Introduction

2. OBS Studio Vs Classic

3. Downloading and Installing OBS Studio

4. OBS Studio Settings – Bitrate, Twitch Server, and Stream Key

5. OBS Studio Settings – Recording, Resolution, Audio, and More

6. In-depth look at Sources in OBS Studio

7. Filters In OBS Studio

8. Scenes in OBS Studio

9. What Twitch Alert System Should You Use? (Optional)

10. Setting Up Twitch Account and Nightbot Before We Stream

11. Going Live On Twitch With OBS Studio

Hopefully you made it to the end of the playlist, just a side note, these settings can also be carried over to other streaming providers, so you’re not stuck using Twitch streaming only.

Mandatory Blog Update (July 15th 2016)

Hello there, to persons that still visit this blog, this is just a little update so you know I’m still alive and this blog is still somewhat maintained.
I haven’t done one of these in a while so I will list what is new/fixed.

1. Finally fixed the contact form

Emails sent using the contact form now come to my inbox where I can see and reply to them, and not get stuck in the hole that is my spam folder.

Plus added a captcha block so suck on those eggs spam bots

2. Decided am showing ads on my blog but ads.

Finally said you know what I might as well try to make some return from this blog. Maybe that might motivate me to write more, who knows

3. Changed most of my social media handles (no longer ddmboss)

Yep I’m trying to get away from the “ddmboss” brand and start using my name as a brand “Delano_Maloney”.

4. I created a twitch channel.

But I haven’t set it up fully just yet. Need to run a wired connection for streaming and all that. I want to do simplistic streams; IE, just me playing the game, no mic, maybe my webcam, but just simplify it a bit.

I also like the 14 day deletion policy on streams, wish it was 30 days, but I don’t want my videos to be permanent.

That’s about it as far as updates go, like I said mandatory.

Till next time, Live, Love, and Enjoy
