OBS or Open Broadcaster Software is a free & open-source software for video recording and live streaming. OBS is a program I have used for my events in the past for slideshow automation and music. This tutorial recommends having at least two monitors. As for my setup, I have 1 desktop monitor being cast to AltSpaceVR and the other monitor I do all my other stuff on. In this guide, I will cover the basics and include some links to other videos if you want to learn how to use OBS.

For myself, I was able to get a decent understanding of OBS features within the first hour of playing around with OBS, so it’s not too difficult to get started. Also, you don’t need to stream to Twitch or YouTube; you need to cast a monitor that doesn’t have OBS present on.

Note: You can technically use OBS with one monitor, but you run the risk of disrupting your audience’s visual pleasure by alt-tabbing to OBS to change slides.

Getting Started With OBS Studio

Since it’s free to download you don’t need to worry about fees and the benefit is that this software is considered mainstream so there is a lot of support and help in other parts of the internet if you want to learn more.



Using OBS with AltSpace Web Projector

Since AltSpace you would be casting ideally a full desktop view (having a second monitor) to run an OBS. You won’t need to cast to Twitch or YouTube so ignore those settings in your setup. In terms of doing anything different with your AltSpace Web Projector setup, you just continue to cast full desktop.
