  • rnnoise

    Recurrent neural network for audio noise reduction

    OBS ships with rnnoise noise reduction, which is like NVIDIA Broadcast, but works on any CPU. See also NoiseTorch and EasyEffects if you're on Linux.

    It's pretty great, works decently, but the sad thing is the author put it out a few years ago, wrote a paper and then moved onto something else and it's pretty much unmaintained and requires some very specific ML knowledge.

  • 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.

    As an outdoor streamer, I love OBS! It's hosted in the cloud [0] for me, so I don't have to leave a PC running at home when I'm out streaming. I can control it through NOALBS [1], which basically means I type !start in my chat and my OBS starts streaming for me.

    PS, I have no affiliation with either of these companies / projects - I just use their services and wanted to praise OBS.
