So I still have to run more tests but, if you have an Atem Mini Pro (or if you use OBS), you can basically do what Streamyard charges you $49/month for (having guests) for free using https://obs.ninja
For us: Obs.ninja → Browser → Input to Atem → Stream from Atem directly to RTMP endpoint (Owncast, Vimeo, etc.)
(It’s also free and open source under the AGPL license.)
@aral Or, if you want to have hardware: Turs a raspberry PI into an RTMP receiver that can feed directly into the ATEM Mini via HDMI. Really cool stuff! https://aaronparecki.com/2020/09/07/7/raspberry-pi-streaming-server
@jwildeboer That is very cool (and could be great for streaming in non-interactive media) but the latency inherent in RTMP would make it unusable for holding a real-time conversation. Appreciate the heads up :)
@aral Give it a try, It works quite OK wrt latency, in my experience. But I might be a bit more tolerant in that regard :)
