    Sounds like you could use https://sonobus.net/ and possibly https://vdo.ninja/ but you might have that already covered with jitsi.

    A very inexpensive and easy-to-implement variant for multiple or far away projectors could be vdo.ninja and https://github.com/jareware/chilipie-kiosk

    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.

    Our collaboration software might look something like Sonobus and vdo.ninja for live jamming (if we're close enough), Discord or Whatsapp for chatting, maybe Area for reviewing mix-downs, and Bandlab for stem-sharing (Reaper too, if you've got it). I'm open to all suggestions. I'm also interested in learning how to use something like Sonic Sound Picture to do visualisations, or maybe creating AI generated animations, if deciding to upload anything to YT.

    If you’re looking to use it as a camera, I’d recommend this app. I’ve used it myself and it’s the best option for iOS camera to obs. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/shoot-pro-webcam-telestrator/id964565026 . It’s paid, but a one time fee, and you can test it for free with a watermark. The best free option is https://vdo.ninja, but I strongly prefer the quality upgrade and features of shoot pro. If you have an Apple Watch you can also control shoot pro from there while using your phone as a camera.
  • What is the best way to remotely stream other people on YouTube when we are in separate cities?

    Hi there. Personally I would give https://vdo.ninja/ a go. It's right up your alley. It's a direct WebRTC feed of your guest camera and mic thst you can bring straight into obs. I use it ever day.

    I have never tried this but there is some guy that has created a bunch of tools for this purpose. I'm unsure if this is the most optimal way to do this but here is the link vdo.ninja. You can send webcams remotely to obs with his tools and much more, hope it helps!

    The easiest way to share a video stream from phone to OBS remotely is by using a peer to peer streaming network like https://vdo.ninja/.
