    I used OBS to capture my screen, shotcut to edit the video, and this command to create a gif (Shotcut also supports exporting to a gif, but it seems to take longer to process)

    I don’t have to, but I pay for Open Broadcaster Studio’s software through their Patreon page because learning to use it to stream was fun, made me learn valuable skills, and helped me make new friends and keep in touch with old ones.


  • Android 14 adds support for using your smartphone as a webcam

    Quite tangential, but during lockdown I was looking for a way to use my iPhone as a webcam and came across this project:


    It started out as being a means to send a video feed into OBS[1], which is how I rigged the webcam input, but as the project grew, it expanded to being a way for me to spin up desktop video and audio sharing in a browser, sorta like Zoom, etc. This let me run virtual movie nights with people remotely.

    Whilst it's possible to use it via the 'create a room' interface, you can also do it all via URL parameters which I found much more flexible and robust. See here[2].

    You create source and recipient URLs and then it just automagically makes it all work via WebRTC. I was able to for example make a source that captured my VLC window and sent out the video and audio, and then two destination URLs which received the source video and audio, but also sent their own audio to one another. This meant we could hear the and watch a movie but also talk to each other via our microphones.

    I've got no relation to this project besides thinking it's really awesome.

    RTMP Using OBS or Wirecast: Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) is a streaming technology that allows the sending of audio and video over the internet. Our iOS Video SDK provides gapless support for RTMP. Instead of publishing live streams with an iOS device camera feed, you can use any software that supports RTMP, such as OBS Studio and Telestream’s Wirecast.

  • What's the best way to convert a VHS tape to digital?
    2 projects | /r/VHS | 4 Jul 2023
    The very best way is prohibitively expensive. Most people just use a decent VCR into a simple AV (Composite video) to Digital USB adapter. You could try mastering VirtualDub but I find it a pain in the ass to sync audio/video, so I just use OBS
