Facebook Live, OBS Walk Through on a PC

In this video I describe how to use free OBS  software to stream to Facebook Live using a PC, the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle and a PC.  This is one of the cheapest ways to begin high quality streaming as it will let you use any external camera or switcher with HDMI outputs.  (One big gotcha that I discuss in the video, as well as a workaround for it, is that the Intensity Shuttle does NOT support the 1080p60 video standard.)
