  3. ytb6 member says:

    Did you have a link from your church live stream?

  4. Josh Gressett says:

    I just bought first camcorder for our church: I can’t seem to get obs to recognize it/ I am assuming that I need to buy a video encoder between the two In order to work right? Like an aja?

  5. Javier Gil says:

    I get loss at minut 6

  6. Ian Boyce says:

    Thank you very much for your videos, they're very helpful. In the event your budget does not allow you to mix isol for streaming, what tips can you offer the foh engineer to create a seperate mix on console for the stream?

  7. Jim Campbell says:

    I’m watching a number of your videos and have learnt a bit but equally left me bemused. You talk too quickly and seem to expect viewers to know a lot of technical terms. We’ve just started streaming using a simple iPhone and 4G data signal.We have no WiFi service in church.

    Dear Stephen,
    How to make 3 studios in 1 livestream Youtube account? thanks

  9. Sreys Streams says:

    Hey I'm a fan of yours and one of the first followers, i really enjoy your content.
    What do you think of my videos? i justt started making youtube videos.
    Hope you like it.
    Have a good day 🙂

  10. Joshua Bloomfield says:

    Just want to confirm that the link to the pc you recommend is correct. Seems a lot cheaper than I was expecting. Also if that is the correct one, would that be good for a single camera streaming streaming to multiple platforms at the same time and recording? Thank you

    We are just starting out with streaming because of the quarantine. We
    are pretty successful/ happy with how it is going with what we have to
    use. One reoccurring problem that we can't quite figure out is we keep
    having a popping noise in our audio. We have tried different
    variables/levels with compressor, gates, thresholds, new cords, effects,
    no effects, different mics, different people, etc. We can't seem to
    figure out what is causing it.

    I am new to live streaming and am thoroughly enjoying your videos. If I understand correctly, I should run audio from mixer to the video cam and run both the video and audio from the video cam to a video interface and then to the computer to lessen latency. Do I need to run an app or studio manager software on the computer for final mix for the live stream ?

    Churches can now get 4 weeks of free captioning and translation included with their Zoom setup (after that it's only $8.25/mo). Here's info on how to sign up: https://youtu.be/4JV5JRSXOeE

    Dear brother, I want to express my gratitude for the useful information you have given in your channel in this time of crissis as the COVID19 is taking over.

    I am a missionary in Barcelona, Spain. We have a youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/fundacionbib and https://www.youtube.com/PRAY4SPAIN – In this time we are confined as a church and I have begun to stream our services but we are in need of the tools to do so. I thought that maybe I could share this need with you so you may prayerful consider to help us in this matter. We are reaching not only Spain, but also many other Spanish speaking countries.

    I have created an amazon list with the products you mentioned in your video. We will really appreciate if you, or your subscriers could help us in this project. It may even sound crazy that I am reaching you with this need, but the time that we are living now calls for action. With our gratitude, serving the Lord in Spain

    Our amazon list is the following:

    What is the advantage of using something like OBS versus streaming directly from a macbook with a webcam and Youtube Live? Are the software programs mainly for managing multiple cameras?

  17. Donnamg100 says:

    Great info! Re: the licensing requirements for broadcasting/posting vids containing worship music. I was told that as long as it's live streamed once, there is no license required but if you post as a vid, a music license must be
    purchased.

  18. vivachibchombia says:

    what do you think about OBS as a starting point, I'm trying to set up a stream but my church is a little bit short of resources

  19. Ben Sinagra says:

    We are just about to put our toe in the water regarding streaming our church service. One major issue is how to get people's permission to allow them to be filmed as part of that video stream. How does your church, or other churches you know of, handle privacy and obtaining permission?

  20. Rafael Alcantara Live says:

    I am not getting audio to my camera when using the ART CLEANBoxPro 2-Channel Balanced Unbalanced Level Converter.
    I used 1/4 cable and did not work: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WPDP7CN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Can you give me some suggestions? I will appreciate it.

  21. James Veryzer says:

    Great, realistic instructional video. Well done.

  22. Tim Salazar says:

    I have a Mac mini – Intel Core i3 streaming 1080p, but am only able to stream at 15 fps in OBS without maxing out the processor. I have an eGPU but OBS will not recognize it. I would like to get to 30 fps. Do you have any advice to get to 30 fbs? Should I use the Windows computer recommended instead? Any help would be much appreciated!
