    Thumbs up Fantasy Grounds Streaming for Dummies!

    I created a mini-series detailing how to create the images for your live streaming overlay using photoshop and OBS.

    I moved these videos from my old channel to the new one.

    Thanks for making these video tutorials! I once streamed a game but we used Google Hangouts On Air! and someone else was the camera guy. I much prefer this set up you have but I couldn't figure out how to stream on Twitch. Do you have any video tutorial to recommend on how to do that? Also, am I wasting my time with a very low upload speed of 0.7 Mbps?

    Tomorrow's videos will cover video/audio bitrate to maximize the upload quality as well as little tips and tricks. I will also cover setting up your twitch channel briefly.

    Good job on these tutorials. You really break down the steps on how to stream and make it not as overwhelming (especially designing an overlay).

    Nice work Viscera - great simple to follow tutorial. I wasn't aware of the uber cool OBS software - I am going to have to check it out.

    Thanks much for this!

    My only problem is that I don't want to advertise monster HP, etc. to the players who will probably have the stream open. My initial thought is to give my stream ID thing (yikes) to a player and have them stream it, but I don't know how to send them the scene I made. Is that even possible?

    Xorn opens a second client as player, doesn't pick up a character and uses that screen to broadcast.
