  • nginx-obs-automatic-low-bitrate-switching

    Simple app to automatically switch scenes in OBS based on the current bitrate fetched from the NGINX stats page.

    Now, these are great upgrades however they don't fix your original issue about source freezing -- that's where NOALBS https://github.com/715209/nginx-obs-automatic-low-bitrate-switching comes in. NOALBS monitors your RTMP or SRT relay and automatically changes OBS scenes between "live" (good connection), "low bitrate" (poor connection) and "brb" (no connection) as your phone hiccups through the mobile network. NOALBS also offers chat commands (when used with twitch) to manually change scenes and do some other stuff.

  • SRT-Stats-Monitor

    Loopy SRT Stats Monitor. Monitors your OBS SRT, SLS, BELABOX, RESTREAMER, RIST, & NGINX connection/s and switches OBS scene on a failed connection. Ideal for IRL/live streaming.

    An alternative to NOALBS would be Loopy SRT Monitor https://github.com/loopy750/SRT-Stats-Monitor although it isn't quite as robust, like there are no chat commands. It also requires sending your feed directly into OBS. Sending directly into OBS is better with newer versions but historically is problematic (source freezes, stuck ports, audio issues, etc.), so a relay is always preferred.
