vveekend vvorkshops in GermanyNovember 7, 2015 posted by: microdee Guest Post
As it turns out youtube live-streaming is banned only in Germany, it seems because they have an argument with a nice organization called Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte, or GEMA. They can go and fuck themselves sooooo much. Now because vvvv is a masterpiece of german engineering i can’t really ignore that. Unfortunately I don’t have time now to set up a new profile on Twitch until the first session so I’m really sorry about that. (say hi to backwards thinking middle aged copyrights holding businessmen/lawyers) However next week I will stream from Twitch and upload the edited videos on Youtube. For tech savvvvy and desperate german vvvv’ers I can suggest the wonderful world of proxies and VPN’s according to ancient chinese traditions.

After 2020 internet will become the flying after 2001: despite of all the technological advancement it is somehow more expensive and harder to use than 10 years prior.

the problem with HoA is it requires a webcam or a desktop capture and you don’t have much control over them either but it doesn’t support proper rtmp streams from OBS where you have total control over different sources
also i know xsplit, vmix and wirecast has virtual webcams but neither of them free (or the free version is aweful) and the trial version of them wasn’t convincing either. OBS is just the nicest piece of software for this according to my googling
What about twitch.tv ?
People use it at -> https://www.reddit.com/r/WatchPeopleCode
from the OBS website: “Live RTMP streaming to Twitch, YouTube, DailyMotion, Hitbox and more.” https://obsproject.com/
so it should be able to stream from OBS to twitch
also: twitch chat works via IRC so we could send/receive Trigger events / Control VVVV applications via Chat.
Like twitch.tv plays pokemon etc :)
