I don't think so, I use a Mac and have kind of struggled to get everything set up. I'm seriously considering getting a Windows computer just for camming. Its a bummer because I love using Mac!

I literally JUST did this and am grateful I did :)

LOL I love when I Google something about camming and it turns me up back here. @AmberCutie , ur my hero.

Anyway !!!! I love OBS and also sometimes kind of want to tear my hair out trying to love OBS and getting caught up in the whirlwind of too-much-unnecessary-settings-that-you-can't-remember-what-thing-you-didn't-know-the-function-of-that-you-changed-and-now-it-broke-halp ................... but mostly I love it. Here's my current eye-twitch sitch----uation (lol......): are Private and Group Shows not available in OBS? I streamed earlier and made more than my entire last pay period in one private LMAO. I mean .... not like my last pay period wasn't less than all the toys I bought to make it but hey! It's a growing thing for some people especially when you blow off your New Model status haha. ANYWAY I digress (as per usual); I also was getting kicked off my stream on OBS, randomly, even when my FPS was chillin and my connection was stable .... and I would have no idea until a member said something in my chat ! Luckily I had someone hanging out because if not how would I have known ? My viewer window doesn't show what they see when I'm streaming , though sometimes it does appear to have a lag as well. And guess what ? That doesn't always mean the viewers are seeing one ! WTF. I recently upgraded my computer to 16 instead of 4 GB of RAM but I feel like it's almost slower which makes no sense. So I'd appreciate any insight or whatever... MFC is the only site I'm on which may be idiotic but I really want to make it work instead of running to another site expecting that to change much when really I have work to mfkin do............. so yup. Holla bacc

Those are still not available in the External Broadcaster or WebRTC Sidekick options. If you want to use OBS just the program in order to use the features of it in non-HD, and are using a PC (not Mac), you can use the virtual cam addon in OBS in order to use it in the Flash (regular or "High Resolution" which you can run 800x600 resolution). This will give you the ability to do private/group/club.

It has had a few issues over the last few weeks, but in general the external broadcaster (RTMP) has been the most stable for me lately.
My viewer window doesn't show what they see when I'm streaming
This is normal. Go to your OBS window and right click on the video, select "Projector preview window", and set it to be "always on top" and just cover the part of your MFC window with the projector popout.

Just attempted to set up OBS with virtual cam to use in flash for mfc streaming while keeping private shows possible.

it works - but even with 800x600 stream, the video feed on mfc flash is very pixelated. Significantly more pixelated than standard 800x600 flash without obs-virtualcam. Looks like they took a 320x200 image and just scaled it up. Clearly something is wrong - has anyone gotten this combo to work successfully?

My output bitrate is 2.5mbps as it should be. Resolution is 800x600.

I'm determined to get OBS working, so I might be here a few times over the next couple of days/weeks while I troubleshoot. 🙃

I streamed using OBS (not the sidekick version) this morning, and I had an issue with OBS randomly disconnecting from MFC. I don't think it was an issue with my internet because the chatroom stayed consistent and usually when it's an internet issue, the messages in chat stop coming through. Essentially, my OBS stream seemed to disconnect from MFC for a second and MFC would do that "waiting for OBS" thing. Usually all I'd have to do is wait for a few seconds, OBS would reconnect, and I could click "broadcast" again and I'd be back.

However, the people in my room said that each time I reconnected, my audio would gain an echo. So after I'd been disconnected a few times, the audio had multiple echos and would start to get pretty distorted. If I clicked "stop streaming" and then "start streaming" on OBS, the echos remained. I tried closing OBS completely and reopening it, and that got rid of the echos until it disconnected again and they came back.

Hopefully I'm describing this in a way that makes sense. Does anyone know how to fix the disconnection issue or the echo issue? If I can solve the disconnection issue, it should fix the echo thing as well.
 
Whatever you want. Just know that if it interferes with being able to see you on screen, it'll annoy viewers.

I currently have all of this on my screen:

Thank you for this! Just finished setting up to (mostly) my satisfaction. @AmberCutie, totally cool if you don't want to share, but if you're down for it - I'd love to know where you got the "highest tipper" overlay from!

MFC has officially enabled private, group and club directly from OBS now.


They've also updated the streaming options page, it's much simpler now:

did charlesbot remove the prizewheel? i can't find it as an option anywhere and i want to make one for my obs mfc stream
Weirdly I cannot recall how I created mine, but I still have one.

Try typing !help in a PM window with charlesbot and see if you can find the instructions for adding it to OBS in there.

EDIT: found this, it's !obs in PM window
