The livecamera is the live stream directly from the ipadcaster onto YouTube. We then use Open Broadcast System (OBS) to overlay other content on top of the livecamera playback then finally stream the final result back to the livestream YouTube go live channel.
To use the YouTube embed within OBS, we use the OBS browser so if you are using Linux, you need to install the plugin separately. OBS Browser is included in the full install on the MAC and Windows.
RECOMMENDATION: We should purchase a camera dedicated to OBS and feed it with a wire. Embedding a Youtube video then live stream back out to Youtube causes significant lag and quality degradation.
