Stream all the players in a multi-player game like a Pro with OpenBroadcaster Multiplatform on Linux. Take a look at the teksyndicate setup we use.

Of course, you don't have to use linode if you're on fiber or otherwise have good internet. DSL users need not apply LOL sorry.

Is there an updated version of this? I am experiencing high CPU usage when receiving the footage on my server, then when I switch between the feeds there is like a 4 to 6 second delay before the feed shows.
Just a heads up in case anyone is wanting to go with linode and run OBS locally on the server.. Linode doesn't offer GPUs in any of their servers. OBS requires a GPU. So of you want to have a director that is actively switching scenes in OBS, you can't do it locally with a linode server. Idk if digital ocean offers GPUs in any of their servers or not.
This is awesome. Thanks for putting this out there. I'm getting an error:
"2018/03/28 16:04:25 [emerg] 18748#236: unknown directive "rtmp" in C:\nginxwin/conf/nginx.conf:182"
in my log file. Any idea how to help with this?
Yeah, guess I'm cheezed that they've picked up 44k views on a video that's false. And costing people money. I think they look like a pretty good group that means well, but I can't help but think their desire to advertise for Linode (who is blameless in this - no where on Linode's site do they say you need a GPU to run OBS...) - and get that commission led them to misrepresent the capabilities of a vendor used in their video.
Now I gotta see if an old Mac Mini will be able to take two streams effectively and perform the function that a robust linux server would have been AWESOME doing instead. Except you need a graphics card!11!! ;)
same findings, there are similar things like EC2 instances on AWS (Amazon) that support GPUs, but honestly I doubt that would be cost effective, they are pretty meaty. In the end I setup nginx on my own PC at home to accept a stream and then feed that into OBS as I have to bandwidth to cope with that, that solution works WAY better than I expected, no need for servers at Linode or AWS etc, however that does totally depend on wether you have the bandwidth or not.
Yep. Wasted $20 on a linode server, only to find out it won't run OBS.
"Do any of the plans include GPU access? I am interested in experimenting with live streaming and would need a decent GPU.
"Currently, there aren't any plans with GPUs.
This entire video is a waste of space, sadly. I've spent about thirty hours trying to find information on making it work as they say they do, and OBS doesn't run on Linode. Wtf.
Man! This is exactly what I want to do. I just have no idea what you were all talking about. Would it be possible to get a service on Linode, then use my old MacBook Air as the computer that compiles the video/game from my friend and I? Then can the MacBook Air send out that stream to our respective channels?
For anyone else wanting to do this process, Linux Mint (Mate or Cinnamon wouldn't matter) would also work identically as it can use the same packages/software as Ubuntu desktop. Personally I prefer it over Ubuntu desktop if you want to do the streaming/NGINX hosting on the same VM. I'm sure there are other linux distributions that would work just fine for this as well, but for the purposes of following this tutorial word for word Mint is my go-to.
There are some premade versions of this setup already downloadable as a VM on OBS's tools section [https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/categories/tools.4/], the setup in this video is similar to most of them (note, I have not tried any of these but they are similar to the one I have myself).
I dont have the bandwidth to run OBS locally ( Except my personal stream to the Nginx server ). So how do we get OBS running in the cloud to leverage the cloud bandwidth? This is seems like info that should have been handled in this tutorial. Myself and 2 friends want to do this for our games at 1080p but, 2 streams down to my Local OBS and one up will totally kill my bandwidth.
i have a challenge i need to construct a 3in1 pc with the fallowing spare parts 1.amd athlon 2 x4 640 2.inno3d gt630 2gblp 3. 8gb dual-channel 1600 ballistix sport ram kit 4. 180gb intel 520 ssd 5. asus pcie 53 wireless n wifi card 6. asus M5a78l-mt/usb motherboard. and some 320gb hdd i cant remember who made it for smartphone shared space.
i want it to handle wifi shared storage for devices and some youtube email and other clicking things maby even netflix in my friends living room. i have no idea if the hardware can be used that way and software to use together or if it can handle a netflix too but i dont want to spend a dime. i have a windows 7 key and thats the challenges.
All I wanted to see while they were going through the nginx setup, is a picture in picture, looped clip of an out of focus Wendell waving in his hands in front of the wall of monitors. Just sitting there, in the bottom right corner of the video. Looping, over and over and over...
Awesome, something like is is just what I was looking for. I had tried to grab the other players stream and then stream his and mine out using OBS, but having both of us stream to a VM and then the VM push the final stream out is much more efficient and I won't have to worry about upload bandwidth on my end!
I used a very similar setup at a private LAN party once, though we had a physical server in another room running nginx, it worked pretty well but OBS would choke on individual streams if they stopped or stuttered and you would have to re-add the source to get it to work again
YouTube did used to recommend max 9000Kbps for 1080p60FPS though. And it worked brilliantly. I haven't streamed in a while, so I'm not sure if it's still like that, but it was after YouTube Gaming came around.
Great idea for the vid but the execution... It's very hard to hear and understand what the two of you are saying. And please explain... WHY IN THE 7 HELLS DID YOU NOT CAPTURE THE SCREEN? I know I can find all that stuff by myself but why bother showing how to configure the bloody thing without actually making it visible?
Maybe do a slim machine tut with LTSP ? the ones they are online aren't the best.
With Intel Nuc boots via PXE and windows server visualizing LTSP server and PXE server (hosts the vmlinuz image)
that loads into a RDP client/VNC into a deployed Win8.1 environment of VM's on the same windows server, got as far as pxe booting off vm of ltsp/pxe server but cant get remote desktop to work (not windows rdp)
Someone explaining things to Wendall, what? Lol. Great video Wendall, your the man. Keep up the good work guys. Logan and Cain, you guys are great but It's great to see a bit more off Wendall and his in depth break down of how things operate.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
