Live-streaming and video production became more than a pastime in the last two years, and became a necessity for many to communicate information and communicate with their communities. In this workshop I take you through the essentials of the preeminent open source tool, Open Broadcast Studio (OBS).


Video consumption of information was already increasingly popular, and in the past year, video consumption and usage has accelerated. There's an increasing amount of video versions of blog posts, livestreaming of tutorials, online office hours, and much more.

In this practical presentation I look at the following topics:

  • What is OBS and when to use it
  • An interface overview
  • Scenes and profiles
  • Settings
  • Putting together a stream or recording
