[oo3] #tenminteach -- Wanna DLIVE? 10 check list items for AWESOME streaming using OBS!

in dlive •  9 months ago


Back with another video, kinda surprised myself actually because I only had four hours and thirty minutes or so sleep last night. Terrible night sleep!

Today I’m spinning back around from episode two which might have been a massive jump from setting up to but I did explain it’s so I can capture the thumbnails easier, in this one I’m gonna try and break down ten areas in ten minutes you need to concentrate on building out your stream.

These are the following.. .

  • scenes - best to make a master one and then scenes including that one
  • transition - a transition between scenes makes it look professional
  • hotkeys - I always put a function key next to the scene title.
  • audio inputs and levels - this make take some time to get perfect
  • video inputs (screens, games) - best to have separate scenes for inputs
  • holding page - need to nip to the toilet or take a call, mute that microphone
  • intro and outro - for start/end show
  • social/links overlay - don’t forget to promote where to be found
  • music players - a stream without music can get a bit boring
  • overlays using dlive labs - plug in dlive labs for vote notifications etc

I’ve done this on purpose because I don’t want you to worry or get overwhelmed when setting up your live stream for the first time, do things a bit at a time, know that you have these ten things to do to get yourself up and running and then it’s just learning the keys, monitoring the output and things I’m going to teach you over the next dozen or so videos anyway.

Hopefully this will give you a bit of confidence to start streaming on @dlive as well, like I said if you need any help just drop me a line — I’ll be doing a live stream chat tomorrow so you can ask me questions live about live streaming and I can show you or help you out one on one or open up a bigger topic or discussion! — you can help me setup my live chat system! :)

Thanks for sharing. A lot of us are quite new to use other platforms on the steem blockchain. personally, I haven't gotten my hands fully on the dlive platform. probably when I am more relaxed, I would sure watch the video. Thanks for sharing @teamhumble


you are welcome. it's ten minutes long and i try and break down the ten areas. then you can take your time and each one, learn it first before you start to stream! :) that way it's not overwhelming, just do it in your own time in micro chunks. easy! :)


thanks. i really appreciate your willingness and commitment to help. it means a lot.

I always wanted to play music on my streams but I edit video on them and the music can be distracting for me,


you don't have to have it playing locally but can still have it play out on the stream.


Ah well I never thought of that ha ha.
