    OBS Studio - Free and open source software for live streaming and screen recording

    Seems like you need to first understand a situation before you have a knee-jerk reaction to something and start calling people assholes.

    From one of the OBS contributors:

    > Firstly, I love the idea of having specific features / plugins available to be written in Rust, your point about it being able to encapsulate the heavy dependency without cluttering up the overall project is absolutely true.

    https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/pull/7192#issuecomm...

    Seems you (an anonymous HN user), are the only one being against having Rust parts in OBS, and none of the contributors have (so far) spoke against having some parts in Rust. Maybe let them run the project as they see fit.

  • Love to see more WebRTC! Shame to see FTL go, I contributed a few PRs to Lightspeed[1] which relied on FTL to achieve sub-second latencies.

    On a slightly off-topic note, I’ve been working on a simple WebRTC radio project[2] for a social listening experience. In my limited testing with a few friends, I was able to get < 100ms of lag (audio de-sync) between different players on different networks. It has been an absolute joy to use. The social experience of listening to music together somehow really appeals to me.

    It was pleasantly simple to get it up and running with socket.io + Mediasoup as the SFU. I plan to flesh it out a lot more shortly but I’m a bit of a novice. Would love to have some more experienced eyes on the project : )

    An ultra low-latency WebRTC radio

  • obsninja

    VDO.Ninja is a powerful tool that lets you bring remote video feeds into OBS or other studio software via WebRTC.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned the excellent https://vdo.ninja/

  • srs

    SRS is a simple, high-efficiency, real-time video server supporting RTMP, WebRTC, HLS, HTTP-FLV, SRT, MPEG-DASH, and GB28181.

    I don't know the answer to the WebRTC part, but as long as you have a server with not-outrageously-priced outbound bandwidth, you can install an open source RTMP server like SRS[1], and stream to that RTMP server from OBS. It's really easy, configure the RTMP server & stream key, then "Start Streaming" which is right next to "Start Recording". You can then hand your friends a link, and they can play it in any media player with RTMP/HLS/FLV stream support, or you can add a simple web UI with e.g. hls.js[2] (very easy to write, there might even be prepackaged solutions) so that they truly don't need to download anything.

  • hls.js

    HLS.js is a JavaScript library that plays HLS in browsers with support for MSE.
