OBS can be an amazing piece of live streaming software if you set it up right. Everything you need to know is covered in this OBS tutorial and will help you get up and running quickly.
Hey I tried using that Transparent Chat Code that you showed in this video and it made the live chat go invisible as soon as I put in the CCS that you have linked in the description. I honestly don't know how to fix it.
Nick Nimmin thanks for the reply. So I'm just wanting to record some live streaming clips and yeh the lips are out a small amount from audio. I haven't seen any adjustments to change the sync, I'm probably not looking good enough.
It can be a processing issue (in that your CPU is not powerful enough to encode and keep everything in sync), or you may just need to tweak your OBS recording settings. If the stream is also out of sync, you may need to tweak the audio delay in the audio settings.
Could you do a video on how to livestream what's on your monitor and have the live chat box? I've been watching multiple videos, but no one really explains all that, especially if you only have one monitor...
THANK YOU SO MUCH for showing us all these good features..!!! I really appreciate it.!!
This is the magic of the internet ... I live in Greece and YOU (from the other side of the planet).. helped me understand how useful this software is.!
SERIOUSLY ..this video should be in the homepage of OBS website. Thanks again Nick.!
attempting to facebook steam but once i posted my stream key into OBS my camera freezes up on OBS but shows up on FACEBOOK, i do have a border planted on my OBS but neither show up on the FB Screen, and this is all before pushing the "GO LIVE" button on FB, can you help
Nick I have watched this tutorial many times and it is amazing. I followed right along with you to change my chat box. I pop out my chat, copy and pasted the URL info into OBS, copy and paste YOUR code to change the chat box. I am STILL running into the same issue.....The chat box AND the text is still WHITE. Is there something else I have to change? It seems like the chat box is NOT transparent. HELP PLEASE......
When I was livestreaming to Facebook it was so laggy , I was streaming a Zoom Call, the call was flawless but we looked like robots on the FB stream. It was stopping every second like move-pause-move-pause
It amazing i have liked this video but Nick you're too fast please i wish you could make more videos or tutorial like this about OBS studio when you're not faster for absolutely beginners because OBS is complicated i'm learning it but it's not easy otherwise you're the best.
CLASS ACT! If you are like me, the first time I watched it I sighed and said..."To much for me"! But I knew this was too good to pass up, so I watched it again and understood most of it, the third time...BINGO! Luv ya Nick, you're helping a lot of folks move a few levels up, provided they have the drive!
Hi Nick, thanks so much for the value you share here. I was wondering how to get all what was taught in this video (tickers, transitions etc) and be able to replicate it by streaming to Facebook while adding comments. Thanks very much.
The graphics and ticker, etc. would be the same, but I'm not sure about the chat. I do not stream to Facebook myself. I hear Facebook integration can be a bit tricky as they are constantly changing things over there.

Just comment here if it doesn't work anymore and i'll fix it.
Thank you. Nice video. But I have an other issue. Everything works fine, but my resolution of syphon of diablo 3 isnt in correct size. I always get only a small part of the gamescreen shown in OBS. If i change the resolution in diablo to 5120x2880 it is shown correct but the fps is under 10... How can i fix this problem? I ve already tested every kind of setting but it doesnt work. Please help
Usually your viewers will let you know if something is not right. Testing beforehand is key also to fixing the bugs ahead of time. Delay on your mic will depend on how it's being routed into your computer. The more devices it runs through, the more likely there can be a delay. Sometimes it could be a camera delay, so you just have to try troubleshooting as much as possible beforehand.
If you seem to only get a delay or lag after going live, it could be your CPU having difficulty at the encoding stage.
Nick Nimmin ok, for some reason (and I’ve fixed all the settings) OBS looks great but my actual Facebook Live broadcast has a lag AND looks a little low in quality. I’m not sure what to do as I thought it was my webcam but it isn’t! Because I have the Logitech series...is there anything that you can suggest that may be the issue here?
I noticed you weren’t using OBS for audio. Tips on that? I have a couple SM7B mics and UA interfaces, but OBS makes them sound like garbage. I’m a musician of 35 years an own my own studio but I can’t get OBS audio to sound good.
Just thinking of starting an audio blog, popped on your vid, fantastic by the way,
but how would I go about recording audio from another source other than my main mic?
I would love to be able to add live skype calls or whatsapp calls to my vid, adding their audio to mine,
is this possible in OBS?
like I say, new to your vids, so apologies if you have covered it before, but if you have, maybe a quick url to save me the time searching through your vids :P
Excellent vid, very informative and professional :)
nice video. I guess we could add multiple web cam as a studio production set up. Suppose I'm shooting a live program and my subject is in N.Y. or parts of the world and the person is using a cell phone.
Noted! It does sound like it could be related to your bitrate setting or resolution v's your internet upload speed. Either a bottleneck or the bitrate is too low for what you're trying to push to YouTube.
Hey Nick thanks you for the tutorial. May I ask, why when I try to record my display that it is showing multiple screens in the program's window. Will this be something that I can get rid of so I can record like you are now only with my display being the source?
This was really helpful!!! But I’m looking to run a tournament soon so to do so I will need to switch feeds is there anyways I could do that. I was thinking of getting a Skype call up and removing the UI (if possible I haven’t used Skype in years) and just quickly tabbing but equally I wouldn’t be able to edit the overlay for the scores between rounds if I did that. Anyone got any suggestions or a way to help?
LOVE the Storm Trooper mask in the background! You post amazing video tutorials. I have learned a lot from them to be able and work on my little boy's own YouTube channel. Keep posting amazing content! Thanks for the time you put into this.
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.
