A new version of my favourite desktop live-streaming software is available.
I use OBS for live streaming on facebook and YouTube. It’s an alternative to the popular Wirecast and it’s free, or rather open source!
I have version 0.14.2 and OBS is offering version 0.15.3.
Release notes for OBS Studio version 0.15.3
- Added “Luma Wipe” transition (by HomeWorld)
- Added a noise suppression audio filter (using speexdsp)
- Added the ability to lock the preview
- Added all supported file types to VLC video source when browsing
- Added the ability to add URLs to VLC video source
- Added “Bind to IP” network option in advanced settings allowing users to specify which network adapter/address to stream from
- Fixed an issue with VLC video source where media with more than two audio channels wouldn’t be downmixed to stereo properly
- Cleaned up log file readability significantly
- Limited reconnect timeout (exponential backoff) to 15-minute intervals max. Fixes an issue where the reconnect timeout could have intervals of days if it kept reconnecting unattended
- Fixed a bug where AAC encoded with windows media foundation on windows 8 and above wouldn’t play back in certain programs properly
If you are doing desktop live-streaming to Facebook or YouTube, try out OBS, Open Broadcaster Software.
Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about using it.
