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.)
A common next step when people start streaming is the desire to add lyrics or lower thirds to their video. It’s actually really easy to do with the popular Blackmagic Designs ATEM Switchers. You can use this method to add lower thirds to your stream o Facebook Live, or Youtube live streaming, or any where you send your stream.
Several people have said they have struggled to get MX Light working for their live stream. I’ve put together a video that takes you step-by-step how to install and configure MX Light and get it working for your live stream.
There are many setups you can use for live streaming your church service. This is one method on a PC that I like for a couple reasons. I like the Blackmagic H.264 Pro Recorder because it takes a lot of load off your computer’s CPU. Unfortunately not many programs work with the pre-encoded signal that the Pro Recorder creates. (OBS will *not* work.) But MX Light was created for just this purpose.
